Re-Opening Procedures

  • Instructors temperatures will be taken at the start of each day with our touchless infrared thermometer prior to classes starting

  • Dancers must have their hair in a high ponytail or bun (preferably a bun) with all their baby hairs sprayed down with hair spray so their hair does not touch their face while dancing.  This causes dancers to touch their face while in class out of habit.

  • Our studio lobby will be closed, parents can watch their child’s class on their own device through the parent portal with our new Spot TV System.  

  • Dancers must remain outside the building (6-feet apart, markers will be placed on the ground where to stand) or in their vehicle until the instructor comes out to bring them into class.

  • Each dancer will also have their temperature taken with our touchless infrared thermometer prior to entering the building.  Dancers with fevers or any kind of symptoms will not be allowed to enter.

  • Upon entering the dancers will place all their belongs in the square laundry baskets spaced through-out the lobby.  These baskets will be sprayed with disinfectant spray after each use or they will have a liner in them that will be changed after each use.  This will keep each dancer’s belongs safe while they are in the studio.  I ask the dancers only bring what they need for class: dance shoes, water bottle.

  • Dancers must get hand sanitizer from our new touchless hand sanitizer dispenser immediately after placing their belongs in the baskets.

  • The dancers will then follow the instructor into the dance room.

  • The room will have a grid like pattern marking 6’x6’ spaces on the floor.  The dancer will stretch and do their recital routine in their square. 

  • The instructors will have a hip bag during class (kind of like the old school fanny pack), in this bag will have a mask they will be required to wear when inside the studio.  They will also have a small bottle of hand sanitizer in the event someone sneezes or touches their face they can immediately go around and give everyone hand sanitizer without having the kids leaving their designated squares.

  • As class comes to an end, dancers will wait for the instructor to open the door and will safely leave the class one by one when the instructor calls their name.

  • Dancers will gather their belongings from their designated basket

  • Get hand sanitizer again from our touchless dispenser.

  • Then immediately exit the building without any lingering around talking with friends or the instructor.

  • Once Dancers have left the building the staff will quickly use disinfectant wipes to clean all door handles, sink handles, ballet barres, change out the liners or use disinfectant spray on all the square laundry baskets prior to going outside to let in the next class.

  • Each evening the floors in the studio will be cleaned with disinfectant

  • The studio will be professionally cleaned once per week as well as be sprayed by Enviro-Master each week which is “a Virus Vaporizer electrostatic spraying service that uses an EPA registered disinfectant to kill some of the most dangerous, disease-causing pathogens, including COVID-19, MRSA, Norovirus, Influenza (including H1N1), Hepatitis, E.coli, Streptococcus, Salmonella, and even Tuberculosis”.  This product is food safe, non-toxic, and can be applied to all surfaces—even food preparation areas.  This Virus Vaporizer spray lasts between 7-9 days after each application.

These procedures will remain in place throughout the summer.  ASDC will revisit our procedures prior to beginning our Fall Season on September 1st.  Weekly professional cleanings and Enviro-Master spraying will remain in place throughout the entire 2020-2021 dance season.
