Updates to procedures/policy…
Due to how close recital is we will be keeping all studio wide capacity, social distancing, and cleaning/sanitation protocols in place until recital day.
What we have been doing has been working! Let's keep it up!
As far as the mask mandate goes, we will be going back to what we were doing at the beginning of the season before the mask mandate. Which is: we will be requiring staff to wear a mask for when in close proximity of a student (check in, spotting for acro, making physical corrections on alignment). We highly recommend that masks be worn by dancers over age 5 but it will not be required at this time as the NC mandate states masks are not mandatory. if a student has allergy symptoms we do ask them to wear a mask for extra precaution. As always we have disposable masks at the check in station for anyone needing one.

Please use hand sanitizer upon re-entering if you have to exit to dance room.
