Covid – 19 Reopening Protocols – June 15, 2020

Dancing on the Shore is committed to keeping all students and staff as safe as possible as we reopen on Monday June 23, 2020. We will be taking the following steps to ensure everyone’s safetyStaff will have daily temperature & wellness checks. Staff will wash their hands in before and in between each dance lesson.

  • Staff will wear masks at all time in accordance to state guidelines.
  • Questions about health and wellness will be asked to student upon arrival to dance lesson.
  • All students will be required to sign a hold harmless waiver at the time of their first lesson after the reopening.
  • Only students taking lessons will be allowed in the studio. No spectators please.
  • All lessons will be 50 min in length. This will allow teacher time to wash hands and sanitize any needed surface in between lessons.
  • All commonly touch surfaces will be sanitized by staff before lessons as well as through out the day.
  • All students are asked to wear masks when entering and leaving dance lessons while in the common shared areas of the studios.
  • Students are asked to wash their hands before and after lessons as well as to sanitize as needed during the lesson (sanitizer will be provided).
  • Please do not enter dance studio until prior client has left and teacher has come out of studio. Please wait in waiting area or outside of the building (to be made specific by location – see below).
  • Please maintain social distancing between all other students and staff.
  • During lessons staff will wear masks. Clients will be required to wear masks if they become with in 6ft of instructor. Students who cohabitate will not be required to wear masks if they maintain a 6ft distance from teacher. If students do dance with staff student will be REQUIRED to wear a mask while dancing with instructor and both instructor and student will sanitize immediately after dancing with each other.  Students acknowledge the potential risk of dancing with the instructor even while wearing masks.
  • Group lessons – Currently no rotation of partners will be taking place. Singles can choose to partner with each other and dance with the same partner during the entire lesson while wearing mask. Otherwise singles will be required to practice steps on their own during the group lesson. Group lessons will be limited to 10 so pre- registration will be required.
