We are excited to welcome our dancers back to the studio for classes! We are doing everything we can to keep our dancers and their families safe and healthy. Below are the parameters we have in place in accordance with the recommendations from the CDC and also the state of Virginia. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us! See you at the studio!
GWDC Safety Guidelines:
GWDC Safety Guidelines:
- Only students will be allowed in the studio. Sorry, but for now, parents will need to stay outside.
- If your child does not feel well, has had a temperature in the last 48 hours, or has been exposed to anyone who is not well, YOU MUST KEEP THEM HOME.
- In order to maintain social distancing requirements, studio capacity has been capped.
- Most classes will be in a hybrid format.... in-studio and online. If you are not yet comfortable with sending your child to the studio, they may still dance with us virtually! Or, if your child is not feeling well, they may stay home and still take/watch class. Or, if you feel there has been potential exposure, please keep them home and zoom in while waiting for test results. We anticipate making this available at least through the end of the year and possibly through next June.
- All students must use hand sanitizer or wash hands prior to entering the studio.
- All students must wear masks while at the studio. Concerned about your dancer wearing a mask while dancing? Read THIS article!
