Our Re-Opening Plans
COVID-19 has definitely brought its share of challenges to our studio as it has every other dance studio in the world. As eager as we are to re-open, we are operating with a slow plan to re-open. While we know we all miss dancing - dancing will always be there, and our commitment to public health and safety is one we take very seriously and with a lot of precaution.
We truly miss all of our students and group classes, rehearsals and the plethora of other fun things we were used to doing in the studio, and we look forward to the day where we can go about a little more "normal." Thank you in advance for your patience with us during these transitions.

------*What To Expect
COVID-19 LIABILITY WAIVER
This is a one time form to fill and sign, done electronically - no waiver means no admission to our studio. You can request to have this e-mailed to you if you want to go ahead and have it done early, or we send them out as appointments are made.
QUESTIONNAIRE BEFORE EVERY VISIT
An online questionnaire asking about symptoms, recent interactions and travel must be filled out before every visit to the studio. You can save the link to this and fill it on the day that you are coming to see us, or you'll be able to access via our website after tonight. Anyone experiencing symptoms will not be allowed to enter.
ONLINE REGISTRATIONS ONLY
In order to avoid exchanging of surfaces from one party to another, all payments and registrations be handled before your visit. We were mostly Green before but this will be more efficient for us all, and safer for you.
All entering the building must have masks on, and they must remain on once inside the studio. Staff that are conducting classes can lower their masks while teaching. If you have a medical condition that prohibits you from wearing a mask, we will request to see a Doctor's Note stating such. Please note that you should bring several masks in case you sweat as mask's effectiveness goes down as they become wet. We also require at minimum KN95 masks or a mask that uses a separate filter in addition to the material of the mask itself.
HAND WASHING & SANITIZING REQUIRED
We will have various touch free hand sanitizer stations set up throughout the studio including one outside in the hallway by our door. Make sure to practice proper hygiene, all hands must be sanitized upon entering studio and again before leaving. Hand washing for periods of 20-30 seconds required after using the restroom.
We will check everyone's temperature with infrared no touch thermometers as they enter the studio, if you have a temperature higher than 100 degrees Fahrenheit, you will not be permitted to enter.
You may enter five minutes before your scheduled appointment time, and find a prefixed spot to dance in (take your water bottles) and you must exit the studio and building immediately at the conclusion of your class. No socializing in the hallways either.
You may bring your water bottles but no eating will be permitted in the studio.
NO SHARED EQUIPMENT
There will be no using of any rollers or mats, these items have been removed.
NO STORING ITEMS
Please come with only what you need for class, at the end of each day if items are left behind we will dispose of them. Half of the storage cubbies we currently have available will be blocked off to limit proximity to someone else's belongings.
We will lock our doors one minute before the appointment start time and not open again until we finish. You must be in before class starts as to not disrupt the class by being late.
Our expectations and rules for being in the studio will be posted in the studio and can change at any moment in time.
*Studio Rentals Are Never Guaranteed
As we are under tight restrictions on how many people can be at the studio, our needs as a studio must be met before we can share the space. We will let you know when you ask for a specific day/time if we can accommodate you.
COVID-19 Rules for All Workshops Held At Our Studio
We are living in much different times now and must take additional measures in order to safely teach and learn dance in our space. Please note that all of our processes regarding entry to the studio are listed above, this COVID-19 page is readily accessible at the top of our website at any time. In addition, as we prepare to bring back group classes and workshops to the studio, please be aware of the following:
*******You may see a more in depth description of the preventative measures we are taking at the studio at our COVID-19 page available here, we have been able to operate safely and without any issues or COVID cases through the entire Quarantine period so we believe that what we are doing works for us and allows us to safely teach you.
