Health and Safety Protocols

 

We will continue to provide a joyful and safe environment to keep your dancer happy and healthy. The plan below, coupled with personal responsibility, presents our best efforts to keep our dancers, families, and staff safe. (Updated As of 8/13/2021)

 

Flu-Like Symptoms

Any student, faculty, staff or parent that has flu-like symptoms, any symptoms of COVID-19 within the past 10 days, or have had any close contact with someone who is suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19 in the past 14 days or have traveled to a “high risk” state / country in the past 14 days we ask that you please not attend class or enter the studio.

Face Coverings

As of 8/13/21 the CDC recommends that " if you are not fully vaccinated and aged 2 or older, you should wear a mask in indoor public places." Fully vaccinated individuals are no longer required to wear a mask while inside DDC. Learn more about CDC Guidelines here .

Waiting Rooms

Our waiting room has very limited seating and guests will be narrowed down to one parent per dancer. Please maintain social distancing while waiting in our designated area.

 

Studio Cleanliness & Sanitization  

Following the CDC Guidance for Cleaning and Disinfecting, each studio will be cleaned and dance equipment and props will be disinfected between each use. Staff will frequently clean and disinfect all frequently touched surfaces (e.g., door handles) common areas (e.g., restroom rooms, waiting rooms), and equipment while the facility is open and in operation. All cleaning materials are EPA-approved disinfectants against COVID-19 per CDC guidelines.

Hand Cleaning & Washing

Hand sanitizer stations are at each entrance and inside each studio, you will be required to cleanse your hands upon arrival.  All faculty, staff and dancers should wash their hands regularly. The CDC recommends this as one of the best practices to avoid transmission of the virus.

Restrooms 

To minimize usage, encourage dancers to use the restroom prior to class at home. We will have one designated restroom per studio, sanitized regularly.
