Until there is evidence that the spread of the COVID-19 virus is slowing in AZ, we will be following the CDC guidelines and abiding by these policies:

  • Temperatures will be taken and hand sanitizer used upon entry
  • Masks MUST be worn at all times in the building when NOT DANCING; masks must be worn in the break room, in the lobby, etc.
  • Class size will be limited to 3-5 dancers in Studio B (the small studio) and 8-10 dancers in Studio A (the big studio). Because of this, you may like to register quickly, or else there may not be enough room in your desired class.
  • Floors will be marked off with colored X's for social distancing
  • The studio will be sanitized daily by staff and deeply disinfected professionally on a weekly basis
  • Hand sanitizer will be available in every room, as always
  • Teachers will be constantly encouraging hand-washing and sanitizing in every class
  • Face coverings during class are optional:
There has been some controversy over the use of masks while engaged in physical activity. We wanted to let you know that the CDC guidelines will be followed, but materials from the City of Scottsdale indicate that masks are not required during this kind of exercise or physical activity, or if there are less than 10 people in an area. We have these materials from the governor and the City of Scottsdale available at the studio if anyone would like to read up on it. However, if any student or member of the staff chooses to wear a mask while dancing, we will absolutely support that choice.

We are asking also for parent help with the following:

  • Please limit the number of individuals coming into the studio with your child in order to keep the number of people in the lobby to a minimum.
  • There is no staff monitoring the break room on a constant basis. Please help our kids remember NOT TO SHARE food, drinks, dancewear, and other personal or high-touch items
  • Please try to limit trips out of the studio while here. (Going out to grab dinner, Starbucks, etc). When the kids are going in and out constantly, it increases everyone's exposure.
  • Please send your dancer WITH WATER bottles so they do not have to use the shared water fountain, but they can refill from our filtered water machine.
We will do everything possible to keep our kids safe! They need dance as an escape, to help them stay engaged and active, and as a means of dealing with their inner world. We hope to see you in the fall!

Reminder: Open House is August 8th. Please register by this date. Classes begin Monday, August 10th.
