Children’s dance classes are some kid’s only social activity. Socialization during this pandemic is important, as long as it is safe. Kids love dance, in part, because their best friends are at their dance school.

Science-based safety precautions resulted in zero cases of Covid-19 amongst dancers and staff.

Small dance groups of no more than 10 dancers (10 dancers under age 6, 6 dancers under age 4) and one instructor in a group/class.

Social Distancing inside the studios. Dancers remain in their “squares” with their very own, individual props.

Temperature checks upon entrance

Only one masked parent and no siblings are allowed inside the facility for age 5 and under dancers. No parents or siblings in lobby for dancers over age 5.

All instructors, administrators, dancers, parents and cleaning staff are masked at all times inside the facility.

Thorough cleaning of floors, barres, bathrooms and all surfaces between each and every class.

Air filtration systems inside the dance rooms, lobbies and offices remain on and functional during all business hours.

Hand sanitization upon entrance and throughout class
