Safer Studio Reopening Plan

 

GENERAL POLICIES AND PROCEDURES

• Signage will be posted throughout the studio as well as outside to remind customers of hygiene and distancing protocol.

• If props are used, they will be items that can be kept by the dancer and not shared or placed in our "to be cleaned Bucket" and sanitized after each use.

• There will be no hand-holding, partner work, lifts, or other activities where dancers need to be touching or in close proximity.

• Lobby chairs will be removed in order to promote distancing, and parents/guardians will be asked to wait in their cars instead of in the lobby.

• All water bottles brought into the studio MUST be clearly labeled with the dancer’s name and kept in their dance bag with the rest of their belongings.

• Students are discouraged from bringing food into the studio.


PHYSICAL DISTANCING

• Studio and lobby floors will be marked with tape to encourage distancing when possible.

• Dancers will wait on tape marks in the lobby/outside before entering the studio. Dancers will enter the studio one at a time, place their belongings in a basket, and take their place on the dance floor while the next dancer enters. Dancers will be dismissed from class one at a time in this same manner.

• Lobby chairs will be removed in order to promote distancing.

• Parents are asked to drop off no more than 5 minutes before class starts, and pick up no more than 5 minutes after class is dismissed to decrease the number of dancers waiting in the waiting room.

• Signage will be posted to remind dancers, families, and staff of distancing protocol.

 

HYGIENE AND PPE

• Signage will be posted to remind customers to follow good hygiene practices.

• Hand sanitizer dispensers will be installed inside the studio at the front door, and at the entrance to each studio.

• Anyone entering the building will be asked to use hand sanitizer upon entering.

• Dancers will be encouraged to wash hands frequently, and also reminded not to touch their faces.

• Anyone who is feeling ill should remain at home. Anyone with Fever, cough, shortness of breath, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, nausea, vomiting and/or diarrhea must remain home.

• If dancers appear to be ill, their emergency contact will be called immediately and asked to come pick up the dancer.

• Massachusetts guidelines for Dance Studios do not require children to wear masks. We are requiring masks for all students. However, when students can be 6 feet apart and participating in vigorous activity they will have the opportunity to take their mask off. Please let us know if your child has a medical issue that will make mask wearing an issue.

 

CLEANING PROCEDURES

• All classes have been shortened by 5 minutes to allow teachers time to clean in between.

• The studio will be cleaned frequently throughout the day, including bathroom and waiting room with approved cleaning products.

• After each class, the barres, doorknobs, and other surfaces will be sanitized.

• Floors will be sanitized daily.

 

STAFF

• Staff will be required to wear masks in class.

• Staff will be asked not to come into the studio if they are ill.

• All staff will be trained on cleaning, distancing, and hygiene protocol.

• Staff will be trained on procedure to follow if a student comes to the studio ill, or becomes ill while at the studio.

• Procedures and policies will be reviewed with staff frequently

• Staff are reminded to follow the same hygiene procedures listed above.

 

IN THE EVENT THAT CLASSES ARE SWITCHED TO ZOOM FOR ALL STUDENTS OR INDIVIDUAL STUDENTS

• If full schedule is switched to remote instruction classes will be held on a slightly different schedule since live classes can only be held one class per time slot.

• Tuition remains the same for in person and remote learning. Tuition will not be refunded for absences due to illness.

• If tuition is past due you may lose your spot in class and a student on the waitlist will fill the spot.
