SPARTAN DANCE CENTER
HEALTH & SAFETY PROTOCOLS
Governmental mandated shutdown & Spartan Dance Center's commitment
Spartan Dance Center has been working diligently over the last few months to implement health procedures and guidelines to offer the safest environment for our dance families. We are daily monitoring government policy, state changes and public health organizations WILL continue to make changes as necessary.
We place heavy emphasis on the health and safety of every client, family and community member surrounding us. This uncharted territory can be challenging for everyone; but the plan below, coupled with personal responsibility, presents our best efforts to our dancers, families and staff safe.
ILLNESS & FLU-LIKE SYMPTOMS
Any dancer that is experiencing any illness, including: cold, cough, sore throat, fever/chills, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, lost of taste or smell, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea or flu-like symptoms, should attend SDC at home class for 14 days after symptoms subside. Dancers will have the ability to take every class virtually during missed class time.
COVID EXPOSURE - DEGREE OF SEPARATION
Any dancer that is experiencing any illness, including: cold, cough, sore throat, fever/chills, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, lost of taste or smell, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea or flu-like symptoms, should not attend in-person classes for 14 days after symptoms subside. Dancers will have the ability to take class virtually during missed class time.
Face coverings are required for everyone 5 and older when entering the building. Face masks are required during dance class. Our entire staff will be wearing masks and will be conscientious of medical distress in our dancers.
Spartan Dance Center's staff will receive temperature checks every day before entering the building. Likewise, dancers and families will also receive temperature checks with a touch free thermometer. Any persons with a temperature higher than 99.5 (CDC recommended) will not be allowed entry into the building.
HAND WASHING / SANITIZING
The CDC recommends hand washing / sanitizing as one of the best practices to avoid transmission of the virus. It is recommended that each dancer wash their hands or using one of our hand sanitizing station upon entering the building.
LIMITING DANCER CAPACITY
Following local government regulations, dance classes will have a limited number of dancers allowed into in-person class. This will keep our dancers safe while allowing them the optimal amount of space to continue to practice social distancing.
(Virtual classrooms will be provided as well)
Creative Movement classes will be allowed to have 1 parent/guardian per dancer in the room. We ask that all parents remain outside of the building (unless for specific circumstances) in order to keep our dancers, families and staff safe. Our livestream platform will allow for parents to observe their dancers class with a secure, personalized link to their classroom. Parents can view their dancers class from your home, the office, or even from our parking lot!
All interior classroom doors will remain open to reduce touch points throughout the building.
Dance rooms will have increased cleaning of all surfaces, handrails, floors in between each class. In our best efforts to maintain a sanitized classroom, all dancers items must be taken at the end of class.
BATHROOM BREAKS DURING CLASS
All dancers are asked to use the bathroom facilities at home or before class. During class, instructors will monitor emergency bathroom use for dancers.
ELIMINATION OF DRINKING FOUNTAINS
Drinking fountains will not be available for use at Spartan Dance Center. We ask that all dancers please bring a disposable water bottle to class or purchase a bottle of water from the front desk.
