We are continuing to wear face masks only in our classes for children younger than 5 years-old (Rhythm & Movement, Kinderdance, and Primary Dance 1 & Tap). For all other classes, face masks are optional. We will continue hand sanitizing before and after class, and frequent cleaning of high touch surfaces to keep our dance families safe. Since re-opening in July 2020, there have been no transmissions of COVID-19 at the dance studio. Keeping social distance in our small lobby and dressing room is challenging, which is why we will be asking parents to pick up and drop off our older students outside of our building whenever possible. Parents of younger students are welcome to come in to drop-off and pick-up their students.

For air quality, we have purchased Medify medical grade HEPA air filtration units for each studio and the lobby that are rated to completely change the air every 30 minutes and whose filter will remove particles to .1 micron. We have also installed a no-touch hand sanitizer dispenser in the lobby, between the two studio doors, to be used by each student before and after their class, and a no-touch dispenser for the bathroom soap. All contact surfaces will be sanitized frequently with approved disinfectants and again at the end of day.
Zoom class can be arranged if a student is at risk or on quarantine.
