These are the current procedures we are following based on CDC guidelines for classes in our studio and are updated as we get new information. For more specific information, please feel free to contact us.
1. All classes are available as both IN PERSON and VIRTUAL (ZOOM). ZOOM access will be available to all registered families for use in the event of illness or lockdown protocols.
2. We have instituted new cleaning protocols for the daily use of the studio. There will be multiple HEPA filter air purifiers running during class to circulate and clean the air in addition to ceiling fans and open doors when possible. We have steam mops to disinfect the floors between classes. We are investing in new individual mats for Acro classes to facilitate social distancing and ease of disinfecting between classes. Any props used in classes will be disinfected between uses or disposable.
3. Dancers ages 3 and above, as well as all staff and any other entrants to the building, must wear cloth masks for group classes. This is based on the mandates from the state, as well the research that indicates that mask use mitigates the spread of COVID-19.
4. There will be limits on the number of people using our waiting room in the new space. We will be encouraging a drop off policy for dancers. Parents will be able to use ZOOM to watch class if they choose. Exceptions will be for young dancers that need help using the restroom. Anyone entering the studio will be required to wear a mask.
5. Class sizes are smaller to accommodate for social distancing. All students will be assigned a spot to put their items when in class that corresponds to a socially distanced box on the floor.
6. Any dancers or their families that have traveled outside of Pennsylvania to the states listed by the Department of Health as areas of concern, will be asked to remain out of the studio for 14 days and join classes through ZOOM.
7. Any dancers or family members that have been exposed to COVID-19 or are exhibiting symptoms are asked to remain out of the studio for 14 days and join classes through ZOOM.
