REOPENING PLAN AS OF AUGUST 1st, 2020
Parents/dancers will be required to submit our daily screening questionnaire prior to arriving at the studio. A new questionnaire will be required every new day your dancer will be coming to the studio.
A temperature check will be required at home, the best time to take the dancer's temperature is in the morning.
Dancers with a temperature of 99F or 38C or higher must stay home.
Dancers with any symptoms listed on the questionnaire must stay home.
Only staff and students will be allowed in the studio, aside from parents enrolled in "parent and tot" classes or accompanying toddler tot dancers.
Parents will drop off and pick up their dancer at the designated door.
Staff and students will be required to sanitize hands upon entering the studio, as well as before and after breaks.
The Dancer's Quarters will be closed until further notice. Dancers will be allowed to bring one small shoe bag to hold their outdoor shoes and dance shoes. Dancers will be required to bring a reusable water bottle (labeled with their name). Please ensure your dancer does not leave any belongings behind when they leave the studio.
Bare feet are not allowed in the studio, at this time. Grip socks or dance shoes are required for all studio participants.
Groups in the studio are based on government regulations and studio size. To help with social distancing, each dancer will be assigned a numbered, colored, and clearly identified square to dance in for the duration of a class. The dancer will have a matching number placement at the barre, as well as a number placement for their belongings at the side.
Staff will be frequently sanitizing high-touch areas and any equipment used. Cleaning of the studio and space will take place during the break between each class.
Staff will follow the same screening as the dancers and will remain home if feeling unwell. Staff will remain outside of the dancer's zone to maintain social distancing. In the event that a staff member will enter the dancer's zone, they will don a mask for safety, and sanitize hands before and after interacting with the dancer.
