COVID-19 Cleaning and Sanitizing Regulations for September 2020

The safety and security of our students, families, and staff is of the utmost importance, and we are determined to continue to provide quality programming in a safe and welcoming environment. 

As the Covid-19 status in Peel is constantly evolving, our protocols will be flexible and we will adapt to any changing situation.  Beginning in September 2020, we are committed to take the following precautions to do our part in controlling the spread of this virus:

Sanitization and Cleaning

Hand sanitizing stations will be available at the front door and studio door for students to use upon entry and exit.

Classes will last 50 minutes allowing for all frequently touched surfaces (barres/mats/doorknobs etc) to be sanitized following every class, and to allow the exit of one class before the entry of the next

Facility Entry and Exit

Students will be dropped off by one parent and picked up at the facility door, which will be supervised by a staff member or volunteer. Students are asked to wear masks until inside of the dance studio.  Parents of students under age 6 will be permitted to enter the facility and assist students with shoes etc. (masks must be worn by adults.) *Please note that if your young child is not able to use the rest room independently, you will be asked to wait in your car during the class in case your assistance is needed, as teachers will not enter the washrooms with students.* Parents of “Tots and Tutus” are welcome to stay with the child in class.  

As weather permits, students are asked to leave jackets and personal belongings with their parents. Shoes are to be taken off and left at the front door.  In inclement weather, jackets can be brought inside and will be separated and placed in the waiting room.

All parents of students under age 18, and students aged 18 and older will be required to sign a waiver before entering the facility.  This waiver will require the declaration of any international travel, contact with COVID-19 positive patients, or any COVID-19 symptoms.  Any student exhibiting symptoms will not be permitted to enter the facility.  The waiver will be available at the facility door and will also be available for parents to print at home and submit with the student.

Chairs have been removed from the waiting area, and the change room will be temporarily closed to students.

While in Class

Floor markings will be used for younger students to ensure physical distancing.

Instructors will be required to wear masks when physical distancing is not possible (performing corrections, spotting etc.)

No shared props will be used in classes, and dance shoes will not be available to borrow.

Partner work and acro tricks requiring partners will not be performed for the immediate future.

Students are encouraged to bring personal yoga mats for floor work and stretching to reduce surface contact. 

Parents

We appreciate your cooperation in these efforts to keep our studio and students safe.  When dropping off and picking up your child, please be prompt, as classes will have a 10 minute transition period for changeover.  Please ensure you are present at the facility entrance to sign the waiver (older students can provide a pre-signed waiver.)

COVID-19 Update: April 9

We are currently closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Updates will be communicated to students and families via email. If you have not been receiving update emails, please check your junk mail and contact us to ensure your email on file is up to date. We hope to see you all in the studio soon!

COVID-19 Closure

To ensure the safety and security of our students and their families, we are currently closed. Please check our Facebook, Instagram, or the “News” page for further details

Where possible, an attempt will be made to make up missed classes at alternate times/add time to classes to ensure recital dances can progress.  Where not possible, fees will be credited accordingly.  These decisions will be finalized once we know the final extent of the closure.  April fees will not be charged until this is confirmed. 

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. Please feel free to contact us via email or phone with any questions or concerns you may have.
