We are committed to creating a safe environment at Studio b.  It starts with our Studio b Way and currently we are focusing on taking all of the steps necessary for you to feel comfortable with us. Please review our list of procedures below.  

Safe Studio Procedures

Updated 8/30/2021

 

Masks

  • Per CDC and Tippecanoe Health Department recommendations, we ask that everyone entering the building wear a mask.  

  • When social distancing cannot be achieved, (i.e. rehearsing routines with formation changes), dancers will be asked to put on their masks. 

Self Monitoring

  • Please do not come to the studio if you, or a member of your household, have a fever or respiratory symptoms, have been advised to quarantine, or have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 10 days.

 

​Frequent Hand Hygiene​

  • Hand sanitizing stations will be available outside of every classroom. Students will be encouraged to wash hands and/or sanitize before and after classes.

  • Hand washing posters are on display in bathrooms. 

 

Enhanced Cleaning Procedures

  • We have increased our cleaning frequencies and sanitation procedures, high traffic areas and high touch surfaces of the studio such as doors, floors, counters, stereos, and bathrooms.

 

Social Distancing

  • Each of our studio rooms has floor markers to help dancers maintain social distancing.

  • There will be floor markers indicating areas where people should stand in our lobby and waiting area to maintain social distancing.

Facility & Curricular Adjustments

  • Lobby waiting areas will remain closed unless specified.  

  • Time is allowed between classes to promote social distancing, minimize dancer traffic in and out of the studio, and to allow for proper cleaning and disinfecting.

  • No food will be allowed in the studio.

  • Curricular adjustments have been made to reduce prop use and to reduce mixing and mingling in the classroom.

  • Class sizes will be limited to support social distancing.

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

  • Our water bottle filling station at the main location is open.  The drinking fountain will remain closed.

Dancer Drop Off Procedures

  • Dancers may enter the building 5 minutes prior to the start of class; the doors will automatically unlock at that time. Upon entering, we ask dancers to sanitize their hands, change their shoes and enter their studio room once the teacher calls in the class. 

  • To help with social distancing, the lobby will not be open to wait during your students' dance class; with the exception of one parent/guardian of tiny tutu princess dancers and superhero swag (our youngest dancers) will be able to wait inside if necessary for child comfort.  

  • Dancers ages 6 and under: Parents are welcome to walk students into the lobby area to help with changing shoes and to take any belongings that the students will not need during class such as coats, hats, shoes, etc. Dancers only may enter the studio room.

 

Pick Up Procedures

  • For dancers ages 6 and under, one parent/guardian will be welcomed into the studio room for the last 5 minutes of their class time for a brief observation and to assist their dancer with exiting the building in a safe and prompt manner. This is for the following classes:

    • tiny tutu princess

    • tumble tots

    • 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)

  • We are requiring dancers between the ages 6 - 8 follow the pick up procedures below. All families with dancers older than 8 are welcome to follow the same procedures. Please talk with your child about your families' plan for pick up.

  • A parent/guardian will line up at the door 2 minutes prior to the end of class time.

  • 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 until the parent arrives.
