Ventilation Equipment:

  • Our building HVAC unit was upgraded to meet safety standards.  All units have MERV13 filtration installed.

  • The HVAC unit will continually pump and circulate fresh air throughout the building.

  • In addition to the HVAC unit and the MERV13 filters -- we also have stand alone medical grade HEPA13 filtration units inside every classroom.  These units are powerful enough to circulate the air in the entire room every 15 minutes.

Mask Wearing Guidelines:

  • All dancers, parents/guardians, and staff members must be wearing a face mask at all times when inside our building regardless of vaccination status. 

  • We will make sure to give the dancers enough water breaks during their lessons.

  • Instructors will adjust their lesson plans to never have the students reach full cardiac exertion so that they can feel comfortable dancing in a mask.

Dance Studio Capacity:

  • Based off the size of the room and making sure each dancer has 6 feet of space around them, here is the max student number -- 12 dancers and 1 instructor in Studio A, 10 Dancers and 1 instructor in Studio B, 8 dancers and 1 instructor in Studio C.

  • All family members are encouraged to drop off and return, or wait outside in their cars.
