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.

  • The waiting area will not be open to families or students during this time. 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

  • Masks are no longer required, however if you would like your child to continue wearing a mask, they absolutely can.

  • 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. 

  • 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.

  • 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.

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