Health and Safety Protocol as of September 8, 2020

The studio’s Fall 2020-Spring 2021 dance class schedule will continue to be adaptable to allow the students to take their lessons
either in the studio, as space is available, or virtually. Due to the potentially changing circumstances of the Covid-19 epidemic the studio will follow what is advised by NC state department. Private lessons and coaching may be arranged both in studio and virtually upon request, when arranged during the daytime with teacher & studio availability.

All dancers & staff at the studio will be required to follow safety controls, including the commitment to
participate only when there is no evidence of health problems in themselves or family members. If your
dancer travels outside of the country, please notify us prior to coming back to the studio.
Barres will be sanitized after each class usage. Surfaces will be sanitized consistently during the day and
floors will be sanitized daily using hospital grade cleaner. A 15-minute break is built in between each
lesson for students to change classes to coordinate entrances and exits and for sanitizing.
