COVID-19 UpDATES

What you should know, and what to expect

As we begin to phase private lessons back in, we are taking the utmost care to do this smoothly, and above all, safely. We hope the following will help you feel comfortable and informed so we can continue to protect the well being of our dance community.

How are you keeping the studio safe?

We have a number of safety protocols in place, including:

  • Taking all students' temperatures upon entering the studio

  • A 15-minute break between all lessons to sanitize space

  • Changing clothes between lessons (teacher)

  • Wearing masks while in the studio (both student and teacher)

  • Providing disposable gloves, if desired

  • Keeping students and teachers in 'pods' to mitigate risk of exposure to others

What questions will students be asked before participating in a lesson?

All students will also be asked a series of questions before each and every in person lesson:

  1. Have you been exposed to a person who has been confirmed positive for COVID-19?

  2. Have you travelled outside of the state?

  3. Do you have any of the following symptoms?

    • Fever(100.4°+) or chills

    • Cough (not due to other known cause)

    • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath

    • New loss of taste or smell

    • Sore throat

    • Headache, in combination with other symptoms

    • Muscle or body aches

    • Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea

    • Fatigue, in combination with other symptoms

    • Nasal congestion or runny nose (not due to other known cause),  in combination with other symptoms

What happens if a student is symptomatic?

The single most important thing to do if any of the following symptoms are present is to STAY HOME. Our collective health relies, in part, on individual attention and responsibility. Note that some symptoms of COVID-19 are the same as the flu or a bad cold; please do not assume it is another condition. When in doubt, stay home.

We also recommend that symptomatic individuals get themselves tested for COVID-19. If the test is negative, you may participate at the studio once you are asymptomatic for 24 hours. If the test is positive, you must remain home and self-isolate for at least 10 days and until at least 3 days have passed with no fever and improvement in other symptoms.  If you have symptoms and are not tested, we kindly request you self-isolate for 14 days from symptom onset.
