Covid  Procedures

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

  • Dancers must wear face masks at all time at the studio.

  • 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 place markers 6' apart  on the floor.  

  • As class comes to an end, 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 steamed.

  • 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 through December 2020.  ASDC will revisit our procedures prior to returning to classes in January.  Weekly professional cleanings and Enviro-Master spraying will remain in place throughout the entire 2020-2021 dance season.
