- Dancers will be provided with an individual bin for storage of any belongings. These bins will be kept in class with students for access to water bottles and masks. Each bin is sanitized between use.
- Multiple hand sanitizing stations are found throughout the building. Please ensure hands are cleaned upon entering. Students will be provided with hand sanitizer in class after they remove their mask for physical purposes. Gloves and masks are also available.
- Staff are required to wash/sanitize hands between classes, and throughout. Masks will be worn between classes, and whenever physical distancing is difficult for correction purposes.
- Physical distancing stickers and reminders are posted throughout the studio/dressing areas to remind students to stay safe an maintain 2m between people. The studio area has been taped so students can easily identify the spaces they should use to maintain physical distancing.
- More staff will be present in the studio to aid in screening practices, reminding students of COVID guidelines and cleaning of traffic areas/washrooms/equipment between classes.
