KEEPING OUR DANCERS SAFE

FALL CLASSES  - This year, we are scheduling classes to accommodate the changing regulations from local health authorities. We will continue to update class offerings as local health and safety guidelines allow. Watch your email for updates on our Zoom and In-Studio classes.  

A Variety of Classes!

In-Studio Classes - Take class in the studio, following all of our health and safety guidelines shown below. 

Custom Classes - Take weekly class in the studio with your choice of dance style and with the dancers you choose! For more information on these, please see the fall schedule sheet and the custom class form under the Dance Classes tab. 

Zoom Classes - All our scheduled classes will be offered on Zoom. When attending a Zoom class, dancers should dress for class, following the studio dress code. Your attire is an important part of dance etiquette that teachers appreciate. *Please give the office at least a 24 hour notice for a Zoom link. Any time shorter than 24 hours and there is no guarantee the Zoom link will be sent. *

HEALTH AND SAFTEY AT THE STUDIO

When attending classes or visiting the studio, please follow our procedures to keep your dancer safe. It is our priority to keep your dancer and our staff safe and healthy.  We are following the guidelines from both the CDC and the Oregon Governor’s office to maintain high standards of cleanliness. 

At Check In:

  • All dancers will have their forehead temperature taken and asked the 5 questions about health per the CDC as well as who brought them and who is picking them up. This information is required by Oregon for contact tracing. Dancers will be escorted to their dance studio by a staff member. 

  • All dancers must wear appropriate masks at all times when in the studio and during dance class. 

  • Our dance studios are measured with 6 foot spacing between dancers. This creates small classes in each studio, so enrollment is very limited. New classes are available on a first come, first served basis. 

  • We allow only the registered dancers into the studio. Parents and siblings are not allowed in the studio or lobby during classes. 

  • Dancers are required to arrive at the studio dressed in dancewear and have their dance shoes and water bottle only. Dancers are not allowed to change clothes at the studio. 

Here are our Health and Safety procedures to keep your dancer and our staff well:

  • All LOAD staff will wear masks and use hand sanitizer frequently throughout the day.

  • All students are required to wear an appropriate face mask when at the studio and in class. Dancers wearing face coverings (bandanas, neck gaiter, ect) or face shields will be provided a mask for that day. 

  • All LOAD staff and our dance students are instructed to stay home if they are ill.

  • We are sanitizing the dance studios, bathroom, and high touch areas before and between classes.

  • Our studio doors will remain open, when appropriate,  or air purifiers are used for clean, fresh air flow. 

  • Water fountains and water bottle filler will be turned off.  Dancers need to bring their own water.

  • All floor exercises will be done on clean, sanitized mats.

  • Dancers may use the bathroom one at a time, with LOAD staff sanitizing every hour.

  • No hugging, hand shaking, touching of any kind while at the dance studio.

  • We are not allowing “drop in” to studio classes.  All dancers can “drop into” the same class on Zoom.  Must request drop in 24 hours in advance.

  • Studio dance classes are smaller, to maintain the 6ft+ spacing between dancers.  All other dancers interested to enroll in the class are invited to take the class on Zoom. 

 

DROP OFF and PICK UP PROCEDURES - NEW FOR FALL 2020

  • Dancers are to arrive dressed and ready for class, with only their dance shoes and water bottle.

  • Dancers arrive in dance clothes. We cannot allow dancers to change clothes anywhere in the dance studio.

  • LOAD staff will direct dancers into the lobby, using 6ft+ between dancers.  Only dancers are allowed in the lobby until everyone is in their dance studio

  • Dancers may have their temperature taken upon entry and instructed to return when healthy.

  • Dancers will be asked to use hand sanitizer upon entering the lobby.

  • All dancers will be directed to their dance studio by LOAD staff.

  • Dancers will remain in their dance studio until dismissal, using the bathroom one at time when necessary.

  • Dancers will exit out the doors of their dance studio directly to their parents. 

  • At pick up, parents must stay by their cars and meet their dancer when she/he is outside the studio.

Parents!  Dancers must be picked up promptly after class or a charge of $15 for every 15 minutes late is required.  

In case of emergency, call the office at 503-697-3673 to verify pick up time.  

 

STUDIO ROOM RULES - NEW FOR FALL 2020

  • All dancers are to enter the studio and place their shoes, jacket, and water bottle in a designated place.

  • Dancers are to stay within that space until the teacher gives other directions.
