Covid Safety Proceedures
Your Child's safety is our biggest concern. The following are our safety proceedures. If you have any questions, please contact us at your convenience. We are following Stare of Kentucky and CDC guidelines for group activities. These may change due to changing conditions.
Dancers ages 6 and Up are required to wear a mask
Only dancers are allowed in the facility. No siblings or parents allowed. Waiting room is closed. However, families have access to watch all dance classes through our Parent Portal.
Upon entering, temperature checks will occur at the start of each class.
All dancers will wash hands or use hand sanitizer at the start and during class
Dancers will be spaced 6 feet apart and floors and mats will be cleaned after each class
Younger dancers will receive a dance bag with props to use during class. Additional props may be added throughout the year.
Dancers must wear class specific shoes to class.
We have created lesson plans to accomodate these proceedures and maximum dance training.
