We realize that this may be an unpopular opinion to some, but this is what we are requiring to enter our studio. Students will get breaks to go outside if taking class multiple hours. If we are outside, students will not need to wear masks. When we are outside, we will still be social distancing.
2. Please bring your own water bottle. Our water fountain will be closed.
3. All classes will also be on zoom (not camps), if your dancer needs to learn from home.
4. Disinfecting of all shared surfaces will happen between every class.
5. We will be using both of our SIDE doors and front door for entering and exiting.
6. Parents must drop off students at the door. Our lobby and cubby rooms are closed until further notice. Please do not be late at picking up your dancers. They will not be allowed to wait inside and there is no supervision outside if we are still teaching.
7. We will have our studios well ventilated with windows and doors open at all times.
8. Our studio is clearly marked for social distancing with tape marks over 6 ft apart.
10. If anyone in your family or anyone you came into contact with has been sick please stay home and zoom. If you vacationed in a "covid hotspot" please stay home and zoom. Thank you for helping keep our community safe!

Entering the studio protocol:
1. Mask on, please wait for teacher to call you inside. PLEASE remind dancers to bring all of their belongings from the car.
2. Hand sanitizer will be used by everyone entering the building.
3. When allowed in, students must walk the perimeter of the room to place bag, water, and shoes down in specified spot. These spots will be marked and very clear for the dancers.
4. Students can then go to one of the assigned spaces on the floor and wait for class to begin.
