covid-19 policies

& procedures

Due to COVID-19, there will be some changes and new procedures put into place in order for us to safely be back in the studio together.

Drop Off, Pick Up and Waiting Room


  • Students will need to be dropped off at the front door and picked up at the back door to eliminate congestion at the front of the studio.

  • Students between the ages of 3 - 7 may be escorted in by 1 parent/guardian for the first few weeks of classes, or until they feel comfortable coming in on their own.

  • New families - 1 parent is welcome to observe classes for the first two weeks.

  • Temperature checks will be done before anyone will be permitted to enter the building.  Anyone with a temperature 99.9 or higher will not be permitted to enter the building.

  • The waiting area will not be open to families or students during this time and students will be required to leave during times when they do not have class. We apologize for this inconvenience.

  • Students will not be permitted to participate in classes until we have received a completed COVID-19 Waiver (see your DS Pro account). 


Studio Safety Precautions


  • Staff and students must wear masks at all times, except while actively participating (does not apply if under 12 years old). If you would prefer your child wear their mask at all times, just let us know.

  • PLEASE bring your own water bottle. Our water fountain will remain closed at this time.

  • We will be limiting the number of staff present at the same time to the minimum number possible to safely run our programs.

  • Individuals should wash their hands as frequently as possible and must stay home when sick.

  • We will make hand sanitizer or hand washing stations readily available for all employees, patrons, and visitors throughout our studio, including at each entry and exit at a minimum.

  • Bathrooms will be cleaned and sanitized in between each class or at least once per hour while open (4:30pm - 9:30pm Monday - Friday and 9:15am - 11:45am on Saturday).

  • Class area, including floor and any shared equipment, will be cleaned prior to next class entering space. We do not anticipate using much shared equipment during these times. 

  • Staff will be proactive about cleaning frequently touched surfaces while classes are running.

  • Six foot boxes have been taped to our dance floor so the students and staff will have adequate space between them while dancing.

  • No physical contact is permitted.

  • Our garage door will be opened when at all possible to allow fresh airflow.  

  • Cubbies will not be used during this time.  Dancers will have spots spread out 6 ft apart, around the perimeter of the dance floor for their belongings.

  • We are required to operate at 30% of our maximum fire code occupancy.

  • Class attendance is taken electronically by studio staff so no contact will be made during check-in.

We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we adapt these new policies and procedures to ensure our teachers, staff and dance families remain safe and healthy in these unprecedented times.
