Studio Safety Updates

We have made a number of physical studio updates and changes to keep our students dancing safely.

  • Studio has been deep cleaned and sanitized

  • Our sprung, hardwood dance floors have been deep cleaned, and re-sealed.

  • Anything that could be shared:  props, books, soft furnishings, have been removed.

  • Hall dance bag hooks have been removed. Dancers will keep bags in their dance room.

  • We have taken apart our normal class schedule and restructured it so that the great majority of our dancers take only one class per day instead of back to back classes to eliminate waiting. Generally, Ballet and Tap are Tuesdays and Thursdays with Jazz, Musical Theater, Jazz Funk, etc on Mondays and Wednesdays. 

  • We are ending all classes ten minutes early to allow time for dancers to exit before the next class arrives and to sanitize the rooms and bathroom. Please be on time so dancers do not have to wait. 

  • We have limited our class sizes and taped the floors to allow for six feet or more of separation.

  • Teachers have a six foot deep teaching alley at the front of the class to minimize contact.

  • Teachers will wear masks when greeting and dismissing students and anytime they are closer than six feet. 

  • The lobby is closed to everyone except staff and students..

  • We have hand sanitizer in each studio, as well as at the front desk
