KEEPING OUR DANCERS SAFE

SUMMER CLASSES and CAMPS SCHEDULE - Summer session begins on Monday, July 6 and ends Friday, July 31.

This summer, 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. 

 

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 a mask at all times.

  • 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, to facilitate clean air flow and fresher air.

  • Classes will be held outside, when appropriate.

  • 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, not the floor.

  • 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.

  • Dancers will take class with the same dancers for the Summer Session. 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 SUMMER 2020

  • Dancers may have their temperature taken upon entry and instructed 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.
