OUR COVID PROTOCOLS for 2021 – 2022

Amended March 2022

1. Every parent will have to sign our specific COVID disclaimer as well as our  regular disclaimer. The disclaimers can be signed online during the registration process.

2. No parents will be allowed in the studio (except one parent or caretaker per Little Dreamer student who may sit in the waiting area if their child needs them for emotional support.)

3. For the 2021 – 2022 dance season we will be following the COVID guidelines recommended by the CDC for K-12 schools, and mandates by the local K-12 schools. As of March 2, 2022 mask-wearing is optional in Dream Studio.  Distancing between students will be 3 feet to reflect the change in the schools protocols.

4. Students will once again be allowed to change in the studio and use the  dressing rooms provided. They must maintain at least three feet of distance between themselves and others. 

5. Students will be allowed to resume entry and exit through the front door as  prior to the beginning of the pandemic. Students must stay at least 3 feet away from each other.  

6. During class students will be allowed to go into the waiting area to their chair for a  drink of water, one at a time. Students are encouraged to inform their teacher  they need a drink of water, and will be allowed to quickly go out of the room and return to class.  

7. Regular use of bathrooms will resume.   All students must wash their hands and/or sanitize after  using the bathroom.  

8. Each student will sanitize hands when necessary at their own discretion. 

9. Each student will stand at least 3 feet away from fellow students unless it’s  for short periods of time or transitory.  

10. Hands-on corrections will resume as most teachers are vaccinated. If you  are uncomfortable with hands-on corrections please let Kim and the faculty  know.  

11. There is at least one door to the outside in each studio. The doors will be open at least once per hour to ventilate well with the air purifiers remaining on at all times. The air conditioners/heaters will be on as needed. If the air temperature permits  the windows and doors will be open instead and the fans will be running in each  class.  

12. Barres, bathrooms, and chairs will be sanitized once a day before classes begin. Studio floors will be cleaned and sanitized frequently.  

13. Students will exit one at a time through the front door of the studio.    

14. Parents must ensure that they are not late to pick up their child. Parents may not wait in their cars in the driveway in front of the studio. Please wait in the parking lot for your student. 

15. Please do not send your child to class if they have a fever, are sick, sneezing, coughing, or show any signs of illness.
