COVID-19 Guidelines

Updated 1/15/2021

Guidelines are subject to change as conditions change over time

  • Parents will not be allowed to stay in the building. Students will be dropped off at the front door and can be walked to the end of the ramp. Upon entering, all students’ temperatures will be taken using a non-contact thermometer. If the student’s temperature is 100.4 or above, students will not be allowed to attend class and must return home. Once allowed in, students will put on hand sanitizer or, if preferred, can go to the utility sinks to wash their hands for 20 seconds. Students should arrive five minutes before class begins to give them time to place their belongings in the designated storage areas, but not before that time. 

  • There will be designated spots for students to place their outside shoes/belongings. Students must wear outside shoes into the building and change into their dance shoes while in the building. Water fountains will be closed, so students are advised to bring their own labeled water bottle. Please do not bring food into the building.

  • Masks will be worn during class for ages 5 and up, unless they have a medical exemption. However, if a teacher is high risk and has health concerns, those students with medical exemptions will be required to take a different class with an instructor who is comfortable with an unmasked student. Masks are strongly encouraged  for our preschool students. Masks will be worn in the lobby at all times, and instructors will wear masks when teaching classes.

  • Students taking class in Studio 6 will exit out of the very left door. Students taking class in Studio 3, 4, or 5 will exit out of the middle door. Students taking class in Studio 1 will exit out of the very right door. Students will be given hand sanitizer on their way out the door.


Payment/Enrollment Details

  • Due to our limited class sizes, to ensure payment, we are requiring all families be enrolled in auto-pay. We run auto-pay for the four installments on the following dates for accounts that have not been paid for in advance: Installment One, 1/16; Installment Two, 2/8 Installment Three, 3/8; Installment Four, 4/8; Installment 5, 5/8.

  • Tuition rates are final based on the full session price and are not based on attendance. If a class is missed, you are welcome to contact us to schedule a make-up class.

  • If diagnosed with COVID-19, please let our staff know IMMEDIATELY. If at any point we feel it is unsafe to continue classes in the studio, the season’s classes will happen online via zoom. There will be no discounted tuition if your family chooses not to take the class on zoom, as this is our way of offering classes instead of closing completely.

 

Exposure Policies

  • Any exposed students, if not vaccinated, will be required to stay home for five days. If after 5 days the student shows no symptoms and receives a negative rapid or PCR test, they will be allowed to return to class. If the student is symptomatic, they will be required to remain home until they stop showing symptoms and receive a negative PCR test.

  • If a vaccinated student is exposed, they are welcome to come to class provided that they are showing no symptoms and wear a mask at all times, per VDH guidelines. If symptomatic, the same rule applies as above - they must not return until they stop showing symptoms and have a negative PCR test.
