"Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass but learning to dance in the rain." In the challenging and uncertain times of the Covid-19 Pandemic, dance has been a source of joy and connection for our children. We hope to continue that both virtually and in the studio so there is a safe place for EVERY family to dance.
What we are doing to keep the studio as low-risk as possible:
Professional cleaning 3X per week.
Sanitization of high traffic areas, knobs, bathrooms, and surfaces.
Sanitization of floors between every class.
Class props will be cleaned after each use.
Designated entrances and exits for each studio to manage flow of traffic and minimize contact.
Enhanced ventilation with open doors, windows, loading docks, (weather permitting) and air purifiers.
Multiple hand sanitizing stations have been installed throughout the facility.
We will minimize contact with our younger dancers by changing dress code to leggings and tank top.
Health Safety Policies for all families:
Mandatory hand sanitization at entrance and exit of the building.
For First Steps classes: Parents will be required to drop off at the door and will not be permitted in the building. Please wait outside for a teacher to come get your child to walk them into the building.
