COVID POLICIES

REDUCED CLASS SIZES

Class sizes have been reduced to allow for physical distancing throughout the entire class.

ONLINE OPTION

Dancers have the option of online or in person training.

MASKS MANDATORY

Masks are required in all common areas and in class for dancers ages 5 and up.  MASK FREE zones are designated for kids to remove their mask safely if needed. 

ONE WAY TRAFFIC

All entrances and exits are clearly marked and all traffic must flow in one direction.

STUDIO'S SANITIZED

Studios, bathrooms, doorknobs and all high touch areas are sanitized regularly throughout the day.

HEALTH SCREENING

All dancers and instructors must perform a health screening prior to arrival. If a dancer or anyone in the dancer's household has any Covid-19 symptoms, (fever, cough, chills, shortness of breath, sore throat and painful swallowing, stuffy or runny nose, loss of sense of smell, headache, muscle aches, fatigue, loss of appetite) the dancer must stay home. If a dancer becomes unwell during class, they will be removed from the class and a parent will be called immediately. If you have a cough or a fever, you must stay home until you receive direction from Fraser Health. 

If a member of your household has been told to self isolate, you may not come to the studio until that family member’s self isolation period has concluded. 

ONLINE TRAINING

All classes are available by Zoom.  If your dancer or someone in the family is unwell, please choose this option until you have had direction from Fraser Health. 

MASKS

Masks are mandatory when on EOD premises.  This includes all common areas of the studio and during class time. Exceptions will be permitted for people with sensory, cognitive or physical disabilities; those with chronic health conditions who are unable to wear a face covering; and children age five and under.  MASKS DO NOT REPLACE PHYSICAL DISTANCING! 

MASK FREE ZONES are designated for kids that need to safely remove their mask.
