Covid-19 Policy and Procedure

For Just Be Dance Academy to operate safely during these times, we ask that all dancers, family members, and staff always adhere to the following:

*Self-isolation: If you are sick or have been in contact with anyone Covid-19 positive. Follow CDC guidelines.

*Masks or Face coverings are recommended for age 12- adult when distancing of 6ft or more is not an option.

*Exceptions to masks or face coverings: Medical condition, ages 11 and under and *all ages while dancing.  Staff is always required to wear masks unless you are 10ft away from students and facing the mirror instructing. Always cover mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. Dispose of tissue and wash hands after.

*Practice Social Distancing of at least 6ft or more.

*Wash Hands Frequently. Before leaving home, after eating, before and after classes.

*Cleaning and Disinfecting: All staff will commit to excessive cleaning practices. All surfaces will be cleaned before each new class enters these areas include ballet barres, mats, equipment’s, doors, bathrooms, and studio floors. All studios will have proper air circulation, purifying and filtering.

*Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth as much as possible. Parents please remind and discuss the importance with your child. Staff will remind children with fun and memorable quotes and rhymes.

*Avoid sharing props or other equipment or disinfect between use.

*Lobby: At this time, our lobby will remain closed. Parents/Guardians will drop off and remain in their car or return on time for carline pick up. It is imperative children ae picked up ON time to assist in smooth and effective transitions. Students 4 and under can have 1 parent bring them in if absolute necessary.

*Staggered times: To eliminate cross traffic and maintain social distancing, Just Be Dance has created a schedule that is staggered for each studio space and allows time for cleaning between classes.

*Temperature Checks: Dependent on a few factors. We will either advise parents to take their child’s temperature and sign an acknowledgement or Just Be Dance Academy staff will take temperatures at the door before entering class.

*Sanitize stations: All families, students and staff must sanitize their hands before entering and exiting the classroom. If anyone should have a skin allergy or aversion to hand sanitizer, we ask you wash hands often and thoroughly in place of sanitizing.

*Water: There will be no access to water fountains. Dancers can bring their own water bottles.

*Dance Bags and Attire: Please wash and wipe down often. Each dancer will have a designated spot, spaced out 6ft each, to place their dance bags. We encourage dancers to only wear their dance shoes during dance class then wipe and place in their bags after. Please have a separate clean pair of shoes to enter and exit the building.

*Studio spacing and capacity: Each studio has been carefully marked and spaced for each student to dance in their own space. We will still encourage fun ways to connect and socialize with the distance between.

*Schedule: Just Be Dance has taken extra precautions in scheduling to ensure safety. Small class sizes, staggered start times, and extra time allotted for cleaning and disinfecting.
