2021-2022 Dance Studio Health Procedures
Studio Lobby Currently Open For 2021-2022 Season
With limited lobby seating it is not a requirement for you to stay while your child is in class. If you choose to remain in the lobby, we strongly encourage parents and siblings to wear masks regardless of vaccination status.
Please help us keep the lobby open and protect our little dancers by adhering to this request.
ALL Dancers 5 and older are strongly encouraged to wear a mask during class.
In conjunction with SCPS guidance and the CDC, please see our current health and make-up class procedures below.
DANCE STUDENT TEST POSITIVE FOR COVID-19
• Student can return to dance on Day 11 after test date if asymptomatic.
• Student can take a COVID diagnostic test and return to dance it they provide a negative result and asymptomatic.
DANCE STUDENT EXPOSED TO INDIVIDUAL WITH COVID-19
If exposure happens in studio an email will be sent to all dancers who had close contact with that individual. Confidentiality will be respected and the individual’s name will be kept private.
Any dancer or staff that was not within 6 feet or direct contact will not be required to quarantine.
The studio will evaluate each positive case or exposure separately and handle according to that certain situation.
OPTION 1: TIME BASED STRATEGY
Quarantine for seven (7) full days after your last date of exposure to
someone with COVID -19. Student may return to dance on
Day 8, as long as they remain asymptomatic.
OPTION 2: TEST BASED STRATEGY
Quarantine at home and receive a negative diagnostic COVID -19 test
(antigen or PCR) on day 5 or later during quarantine.
• If you get a diagnostic test prior to the 5th day, the test will be invalid for this option.
• If the diagnostic COVID -19 is negative and collected on the 5th day or after
and your child does not develop COVID -19 symptoms, they may return to dance on day 5 with proof of negative test.
PERSONS EXEMPT FROM QUARANTINE ARE:
Those who have been fully vaccinated and remain asymptomatic.
Those who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 within the previous 90 days, as long as they remain asymptomatic.
The studio will not be utilizing Zoom for in studio classes this season. The studio will only operate classes fully through Zoom if the entire studio has to close for a period of time due to government policy or a large occurrence in studio COVID cases.
STUDENTS: Dancers may attend any dance class in their age group / ability level. Students have 3 weeks from the time they return to dance to make up the number of classes they missed while out. Please contact the studio to schedule make-up classes.
FULL CLASS: If a full class has to quarantine, the makeup class will be held on either a Thursday, Friday, or Saturday. Date and Time will be announced once decided.
TEACHER: If a teacher has to quarantine, classes will have a substitute teacher or be made up on either a Thursday, Friday, or Saturday. Date and Time will be announced once decided.
*The studio will continue to update families if any of the procedures change throughout the 2021-2022 dance season.
