  • Parents, caregivers, and siblings will not be allowed to enter the building for any reason. The studio is required to minimize the presence of nonessential visitors.  Drop-off only.

  • DROP OFF & PICK UP ARE AT THE BACKDOOR.  Your teacher will meet you at the BACKDOOR at the start time of your class.  Teachers will bring the dancers to the BACKDOOR at the end of class.  

  • Timely drop-off and pick-up is vital.

  • Dancers must arrive dressed and ready to go.  Please do your best to use the bathroom prior to coming to dance.

  • The shoes dancers arrive in will be left in the hallway outside of the studios and will not be permitted inside the studios.

  • Hip hop shoes must be different from the dancer's outside shoes - please be sure to clean the soles of your dancer's hip hop shoes prior to class.

  • Dancers need to bring their own bag (backpacks preferred) with their supplies.

    • Dancers will need a water bottle, *"Ballet Barre Sleeve"/paper towel roll (if they have ballet), and dance shoes. 

      • *Ballet Barre Sleeve- You may cut a paper towel roll lengthwise or bring a piece of fabric that can be taped or Velcroed over the barre.

  • Anyone with signs of illness will not be permitted into the building.

  • Please do not come to dance if you are sick.

  • If you have been exposed to COVID-19 – you need to follow the CDC guidance:

    • If you have symptoms or are sick:  You should isolate if you are sick and suspect that you have COVID-19 but do not yet have test results.  If your results are negative, you can end your isolation and need to wear a mask for 10 days from exposure.

    • If you are asymptomatic, you do not need to isolate.  You need to wear a mask as soon as you find out you were exposed and wear it for 10 days from exposure.  If you develop symptoms - isolate immediately, get tested, and stay home until you know the result is negative. 

    • Whether you are asymptomatic or have symptoms, you need to test 5 full days after your last exposure.  If you are negative continue to wear a mask through day 10 and monitor symptoms.  If you are positive, isolate immediately.  (See below for isolation guidance.)

      • If you’ve had Covid within the last 90 days:

        • If your positive test result was within 30 days or less:

          • If you have symptoms, use antigen tests.

          • If you do not have symptoms, testing is not recommended to detect a new infection.

        • If your positive test was within 31-90 days:

          • Use antigens tests.

  • If you have COVID-19 – you need to follow the CDC guidance for isolation:

    • If you test positive, stay home for at least 5 days.

    • If you have no symptoms:

      • Day 0 is the day you were tested (not the day you received your positive test result).

      • Day 1 is the first full day following the day you were tested.

      • You may end isolation after day 5.

      • If you develop symptoms within 10 days of when you were tested, the clock restarts at day 0 on the day of symptom onset.

    • If you have symptoms:

      • Day 0 of isolation is the day of symptom onset, regardless of when you tested positive.

      • Day 1 is the first full day after the day your symptoms started.

      • You may end isolation after day 5 if:

        • You are fever-free for 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medication).

        • Your symptoms are improving.

        • If you still have a fever or your other symptoms have not improved, continue to isolate until they improve.

        • After you have ended isolation, if your COVID-19 symptoms recur or worsen, restart your isolation at day 0.

    • Wearing a mask:

      • After you have ended isolation, when you are feeling better (no fever without the use of fever-reducing medication and symptoms improving),

        • Wear a mask through day 10

        • OR

        • If you have access to antigen tests, you should consider using them.  With two sequential negative tests 48 hours apart, you may remove your mask sooner than day 10.

          • If your antigen test results are positive, you may still be infectious.  You should continue wearing a mask and wait at least 48 hours before taking another test.  Continue taking antigen tests at least 48 hours apart until you have two sequential negative results.  This may mean you need to continue wearing a mask and testing beyond day 10.

  • Parking – Please do not wait, stop, or park in the alleyway behind the studio, F&S, The Six, or the apartments.  If you do not get a parking spot behind our building, please continue to drive through the alleyway and find a legal parking spot.  Do not park in the handicap spot unless you have a handicap placard on display.  Please do not park or pull into the reserved owners parking spots. The Citibank parking lot behind us always has space available.  It’s $1 cash for 20 minutes.
