This policy is subject to change as new information is learned and as regulations change.
Due to Pinellas County ordinance, all Studio Employees ages 18+ must wear a mask.
STUDENTS ARE NOT REQUIRED TO WEAR A MASK. However, students may wear a mask at their parent's direction, against our recommendation. We do not recommend wearing a mask while dancing due to the restriction of oxygen intake.
However, we will honor the right of parents who desire to have their student wear a mask.
Students who have had a fever, soar throat, coughing, loss of taste or smell may NOT attend class until 2 weeks from when symptoms ceased.
If a student exhibits any of those symptoms at the studio, our staff will remove the student from the building into the parking lot and wait for their parent to arrive. In that event, the student may to return to the studio until 2 weeks from when symptoms cease, or upon receipt of a doctor's note saying the student has tested negative for Covid-19.
At this time, it's DROP-OFF ONLY. Parents will not enter unless they have called in advance for an appointment and wearing a mask. If the county mandate is discontinued, our policy will change. Parents may text 727-409-7533 upon arrival for pick-up and we will walk your child out to your car. Please arrive for pick-up not more than 5 minutes before the end of class, so as to avoid congestion in the parking lot.
To notify our staff that your child will miss class for sickness, doctor's appointment, family vacation, or any other reason, please go into your portal and mark your child for a "scheduled Absence". This let's our staff know if your child is "sick", or if you are just out of town, etc.
VIRTUAL CLASS is available if your child has COLD / COVID symptoms. If you need VIRTUAL CLASSES, please notify us at least 24 hours in advance and we will do our best to have this option available for you. Sometimes, kids are able to still take class at home if they have mild symptoms.
