Each dancer will be allowed only one bag in the studio. **Please make sure your dancer's name is on their bags and inside their dance shoes**

Our staff and student assistants (class helpers) will wear masks and will all be screened for Covid-19 symptoms daily.​

ALL dancers entering the studio are required to wear a mask. 

  • The number of dancers in class and the distance between them will determine whether or not they will need to wear masks while dancing.  

  • Dancers will have specific boundaries in the studio to keep space between each other per phase 2 guidelines.

  • There will be well marked indicators on the floor showing where to stand.

Classes where a minimum of 6 feet of physical distancing can be consistently maintained can be offered. Floor space for each participant should be marked off to be at least 6 feet apart while wearing a cloth face covering or 12 feet apart if participants are not wearing a cloth face covering. Equipment and floor space must be sanitized between classes.

  • Dancers will enter one at a time through the studio BACK door and exit through the BACK door. Please see map and directions for DROP OFF PICK UP below.
