covid-19 PROTOCOL

*Updated as of Friday, October 16th, 2020*

We feel it is very important to a child’s physical health, and mental health that they participate in dance classes. We promise to provide a safe environment for your child to learn, grow and socialize and

in ordinance with COVID-19 safety guidelines.

 

  • Dance studio classes will be at a reduced capacity. Dancers will be kept 6 feet apart from each other. 

  • Staff members will be in masks.

  • All dancers are to arrive no earlier than five-minutes ahead of scheduled class time.

  • All dancers are to wear masks while entering & exiting the building and also in the waiting room.

  • Masks are highly encouraged for dancers while dancing.

  • Families should drop off at the rear entrance. Only children under the age of 5 can have a parent escort to enter to building  and masks must me worn. We ask that only one parent enter if needed. (No pets!)

  • Temperature checks will be conducted upon arrival for all entering the building.

  • Parents must conduct their own health assessment of their dancer prior to arriving to the studio. This includes but is not limited to taking temperature and discussing all COVID-19 symptoms. If your child is sick, please do not bring them to dance class. It is dangerous for our students, staff, and families. 

  • All adults participating in Parent & Peanut or Adult Classes must wear a mask.

  • If a dancer or household member has visited a COVID-19 hotspot state, dancer should not attend classes until their two week quarantine time is completed.

  • Dancers will be given sanitizer before entering the studio space. Sanitizing stations will also be located at our doors for use at entry and exit. 

  • Waiting room is closed until further notice.

  • Both studio spaces have a 15 min break in between each class designated to cleaning, and sanitizing before the new group of dancers arrive. Please keep in mind the importance of picking up your children in an on-time fashion this way staff can clean and set the space for the next group of dancers. 

  • Deep sanitizing measures will be taken weekly. Daily maintenance cleaning will take place by the Step By Step Dance Studio staff. 

  • The water fountain will be closed until further notice. Dancers are encouraged to bring their own water bottle. 

  • The restroom will be sanitized and cleaned after each use.

  • A new central air unit with ultraviolet lamp system and MERV filters have been installed.

  • If a confirmed case of COVID-19 occurs in our studio the studio space will close for the appropriate and safe disinfecting time period. Classes that are missed due to closure will be held via Zoom until we can safely go back into the studio, or will be made up. 

  • Tuition is due on the first of the month as usual even if a studio closure takes place. Payment can be taken over the phone for credit cards, mail for checks, or electronically via Venmo: @StepByStepDanceStudio
