Changes that you will notice this 2020 - 2021 season
...will have to do with the safety and well-being of our students, their families, our staff, and our studio friends. Our goal is to not just teach dance, but to teach dance in the safest and cleanest manner and environment available in today's world. *While we have always maintained a clean studio, we can now say that it is not only a new and clean studio, but it is sanitized as well.
*We are utilizing UV(c) lights daily to eliminate germs and virus, which is 99.99% effective.
*We have the plexiglass barriers up at the front desk.
*We have purchased extra portable barres to further space out our dancers in class.
*We have added more instructors to assist with the In Studio double class-room instruction.
*Staff will be wearing masks and teachers are experimenting with face shields as well right now.
*We will follow the same protocol as was in place from March, 2020 through the end of the season.
*Face masks will be required. (Not necessary for the tiny tots in the Koala Kids Kombos)
*Temperatures (touchless) taken upon entry,
*Shoes changed once in the studio lobby.
*Hands washed frequently,
*Hand sanitizers throughout the facility,
And, *maintain social distancing by staying at least 6 feet apart.
*Parents are asked to stay outside when dropping off and picking up, and observe class through front windows.
The biggest change will be class sizes.
...Our 'In Studio' classes will be limited to 8 - 10 students per class in studio A and 6 - 7 in studio B, with just 1 student with the teacher in Studio C for piano, allowing us to maintain the social distancing standards set by the healthcare experts. The floors will have taped borders for each dancer's area. (Vocal lessons currently on hold). We have also scheduled a few classes to take place in Studio A and Studio B at the same time, allowing the entire class to be 'In Studio', plus we have added an Annex Studio D to utilize when necessary.
We have designed a "Weekly Rotate Schedule"
...Students that are not 'In Studio' will take the class on 'Zoom' and will rotate each week as necessary. (Eg: 15 students registered for a class : 5 + on 'Zoom' & 8 - 10 'In Studio'.) Once there is a vaccine or cure for Covid-19, we will resume full classes in the studio. We understand that many parents and students prefer to take their classes either from 'Their Home' or 'In Studio'. We strive to accommodate each family's needs and know there is "No one quick fix for All".
Speaking of Zoom classes....we found that students who were able to participate on Zoom via a smart TV or large screen, responded much better and learned quicker than those at home who viewed and participated in class with a small screen or mobile phone. Those who took tap or Irish and had a hard floor or 4' x 4' piece of plywood to dance on, did as well as those in studio classes. While none of us feels that Zoom is the answer, we are all thankful for it as many businesses have found that it has saved their business while keeping their teachers and students actively involved in their dance..
....We have tried to keep them as close to last year's as possible. See those posted in "Schedules".
