Minimized Mixing and Mingling

  • We have made facility, scheduling, and curricular changes to reduce mixing and mingling in support of social distancing recommendations.  



Facility & Curricular Adjustments

  • To minimize dancer traffic in and out of the studio, and to allow for proper cleaning and disinfecting, there is a minimum of 10 minutes between recreational dance classes in each studio room.

  • All lobby waiting areas, dressing rooms, front desk area, etc will be closed unless specified.  

  • No food will be allowed in the studio.

  • Classrooms will refrain from high fives, stickers and stamps.

  • Ballet barres and acro mats will be used and sanitized between classes.  



Dancer Drop Off

  • At this time, we ask that parents wait in their cars or outside during classes to help with social distancing in the building. The lobby will not be open to wait during your students' dance class; with the exception that one parent/guardian of tiny tutu princess dancers will be able to wait inside if necessary for child comfort. Sibling visitors cannot be accommodated at this time.  



Pick Up Procedures

  • For dancers ages 6 and under, one parent/guardian will be welcomed into the studio for the last 5 minutes of their class time, for a brief observation and to assist their dancer exit the building in a safe and prompt manner. This is for the following classes: tiny tutu princess, tutu princess, Broadway boogie, movin' & groovin', creative movement, twinkle toes tap, pre-ballet (including dancers that are 7), hip hop kids (including dancers that are 7).

  • A parent/guardian will line up 2 minutes prior to the end of class time in the designated pick up area on the sidewalk. We will revisit these procedures in the case of inclement winter weather.

  • A staff member will bring dancers to the door to meet their parent/guardian at class dismissal time.

  • If a parent/guardian is not in the pick up line at dismissal, the dancer will wait in the main studio lobby. When the parent arrives, please wait outside until your dancer is released by Studio b staff.
