COVID- 19 SAFETY PROTOCOLS

NEW COVID- 19 Safety Protocols

    MOST IMPORTANT...  

  • If you DO NOT FEEL WELL and/or HAVE A FEVER, dry cough or any flu like symptoms DO NOT ATTEND IN-STUDIO CLASSES

  • If your student or someone who lives in your household has been exposed to COVID, DO NOT ATTEND IN-STUDIO CLASSES. Please keep our studio as safe as possible, so we can continue to dance!

  • Please follow PA state mandates for quarantine after travel, including the list of states, and mask/face coverings. Need more info on PA? Visit https://www.governor.pa.gov/covid-19/

  • Students should arrive 10 minutes before class.  Please do not arrive late.

  • Students should wait in the hallway for instructions from the staff to enter the studio lobby.  Staff will dismiss dancers in small groups. 

  • Students must arrive already dressed in their clean ballet clothes.  Hair MUST be already put up in a bun at home.  Please use a small compact  ballet bag, carrying only necessities, and ballet shoes.

  • Limit your drop off to as few people as possible (one parent and limited siblings).  Since young children often need to use the bathroom or need a parent at a moment’s notice, parents or guardians of children 5 and under should remain in the hallway/lobby for classes 45 minutes or shorter in length. If your child is old enough and you feel comfortable, you can send your student upstairs alone.  If requested a student can provide the teacher with a phone number, and staff will text you that your child has made it up to the studio safely.  

  • NO ONE except for staff and dancers will be allowed into the Ballet Arts Lobby and Dressing Room. We ask that you limit your waiting in our halls.  We will have only a few benches and stools set out in hallways. Please be respectful and social distance when picking up and dropping off. 

  • Cell phones must be left in the dance bags.  No cell phones allowed for use in the studio at all. 

  • Please follow any changes in the Pennsylvania State Mandates for mask wearing.   **Currently Masks/Face covering is required regardless of vaccination status ** Check with the studio on status changes.

  • Dancers are encouraged to bring their own hand sanitizer in their dance bag.  We will do our best to provide hand sanitizer as well. We encourage everyone to wash their hands before and after  each class.

  • We will be asking everyone to leave the bathroom doors open after use, so that they don't lock  behind you, and to facilitate easier handwashing.  

  • The staff will make every attempt to plan their classes with social distancing and masks/water breaks in mind.
