Covid -19 Safety plan
In order to maintain the safety of our students, staff, and families the following precautions will be taken during our 2020 season until it is deemed safe to resume activities as normal.
Staff will wear masks while teaching and in common areas. *Update- Vaccinated Staff will not be required to wear masks.
Due to the Governor Northam’s mask mandate everyone must wear a mask when entering and exiting the building and in common areas. *Update- Vaccinated individuals are not required to wear masks.
The studios will be taped into 6x6’ squares. Each dancer will get a square to stand in. *Update- Dancers will still be spaced out as much as possible but the squares have been removed.
Spots will be spaced around the room for across the floor exercises. Students will move around the room and go across the floor. *Update- at times this method will be used. At times students will line up for traditional across the floor.
Classes will end 5 minutes early to allow for cleaning of the classroom. All items such as barres, obstacle course items, etc. will be wiped off. Floors will be mopped daily. Floors may be cleaned multiple times per day with a spray and mop depending on the need. *Update- Classes will be in session for the full time. Barres and frequently touched surfaces will still be sanitized after each class.
Please drop your child off for class (with a mask on). You may come back in to pick up your child or if you would like we can bring them out to you at the door. If you need to use the waiting room please limit to 6 people and wear a mask at all times. *Masks are optional. We do prefer to keep the waiting room and lobby area spaced out as much as possible.
Masks for dancers: Are optional during class. We do encourage them to be worn in the lobby and waiting areas as those are close quarters and the majority of our dancers are not old enough to be vaccinated.
9. Hand sanitizer will be given out before, after and sometimes during classes.
10. All dancers are required to bring their own water bottle. Water is available for $1 if they forget.
