Our dancers will be let in to the studio one at a time with temperature checks and social distancing. Please arrive promptly at your class time for drop off so that we can avoid interrupting class for check in once it has begun. Our classes will end 5-10 minutes early to allow for studio cleaning between each class. Please be waiting at the correct door for your dancer so we can release him or her promptly and clean for the next group. Thanks for your continued help as we navigate this situation!
Hello Danceworks Family! We can't wait to dance with you! Here are some things you'll need to know before you come to the studio for class.
EVERYONE MUST WEAR A MASK. Face shields will not be allowed as substitutes for masks and may inhibit movement. Neck gaiters, bandannas, scarves and other loose fitting face coverings will not be permitted. NOSE AND MOUTH MUST REMAIN COVERED. No noses out. It is not safe for the dancers around you. Our instructors will make sure to modify class according to our dancers' comfort level as we adjust.
Please check your parent portal to see if it is your week to come to the studio. If you have more than one class in a day CHECK ALL CLASSES. You may be virtual in some and that will require you to be virtual for all if they are back to back. The schedule will be made monthly. Please check back frequently to be sure you are coming on the right day. We wont have room for you if you come on the wrong week.
USE THE BATHROOM AT HOME BEFORE COMING TO THE STUDIO. Our bathrooms will be open, however we are asking everyone to try to limit trips. We realize this is a tall order for little ones, but it is safest for all.
We have tried to make sure students are rotating on the same days as siblings who come on the same day. We have tried to make sure all of your classes on a particular day rotate together. Please let us know if you have a conflict in your schedule. There are a lot of moving parts here, so we apologize if there are any errors. Please let us know if you are on the in person rotation, but intend to attend virtually.
DO NOT BRING FOOD TO THE STUDIO. Be sure to bring a water bottle (with water only) that has a straw.
The waiting room is closed for parents. You'll need to wait in the car. If you feel more comfortable seeing class, please let us know you will be logging into zoom.
Want to watch your dancer on zoom? Here's what to do!
Have the zoom information ready to go as soon as you drop off your dancer. (You can find this info in your parent portal under bulletin board.) Log in immediately so that we can let all parents in and begin class. Late zoom log-ins take the instructors attention away from the class.
Change your zoom name to "your dancer's name+parent". For example, "Emily's mom". We cannot let in observers who do not change their name. Names like "ipad" and numbers will be left in the waiting room.
Log in with your camera ON. We need to verify that it is YOU and that you are on the premises. You will not be permitted to stay in class if you do not turn your camera on briefly. This is for your dancer's safety.
Please do not give our zoom codes to anyone who is not dropping off your dancer. The access to zoom is meant to replace our waiting room monitors and it is not appropriate to have relatives logging in from other places. Additionally, more people logging into zoom takes away from the instructor's time with the dancers. Please respect this policy so that we can continue to offer this service.
Please do not log out and back in during class.
When you see the class wrapping up, please come to the entrance (front or back depending on your class) for a prompt dismissal so we can sanitize.
Thanks for your help!
Bring a small dance bag containing dance shoes, a water bottle, an extra mask or two if you have a lot of classes and a DISPOSABLE PLASTIC BAG for storing street shoes. You may bring your own hand sanitizer if you wish. Do not bring anything extra to class.
Check your class notes to see which door to use for your class. Drop offs for studio b are around back.
Please be in the parking lot at least 10 minutes before the end of class for pick up and wait outside the appropriate door. We need to end early in order to sanitize between groups. We have a tight schedule and we can't allow students to wait inside. We appreciate your help.
If your dancer has back to back classes, we will allow dancers to sit socially distanced in the waiting room while we sanitize. If your dancer has a 45 minute or hour break between classes, please consider picking up so we do not have extra people in the building.
Thanks for your help to be sure we can all dance together responsibly! We can't wait to be back in the studio with you!!
Hello Dancers and Families!
WOW! What a great effort by our dancers this weekend! We are so, so proud of how they handled themselves despite the oppressive heat. We are grateful that we had dry weather for our rehearsal and recital days. Our dancers gave it their all on both days and we are so impressed with their courage, energy and talent! Even the littlest dancers took the stage like pros despite the butterflies. And our older dancers kept their energy levels up through multiple costume changes and trips to the stage. We had a beautiful weekend and we are so thrilled to be able to have a live performance once again.
Thank you sincerely for your support this season. The 2020-2021 dance year came with challenges we never dreamed we'd face. We watched our dancers handle technology like pros in order to zoom into their classes. They handled a rotating hybrid schedule as if they'd been doing it all along. Even our preschoolers were able to follow social distancing rules, stay in their boxes and take turns. Our dancers are rock stars! And our dance families showed us amazing support throughout. We appreciate the extra effort it took to participate in dance this season. Our dance parents zoomed into class from their cars, walked their dancers around back, made sure their dancer had a mask and a water bottle with a straw, slip on shoes and so much more. Your efforts have not gone unnoticed and we would not be here without your support this season.
Thank you for sharing your dancers with us this year. We are honored to be able to work with them and help them learn and grow. We've had a great year despite so many obstacles. And we're so glad you've been a part of it! Our 2021 dancers are true Danceworks VIPs! Thank you for being a part of our Danceworks Family! We've loved dancing with you this year.
