COVID-19 CSOD PROTOCOL FOR IN-PERSON CLASSES
Please remember that these guidelines are fluid and may need to be updated as
CDC guidelines and/or governing rules change or other important reasons that we may deem necessary.
We will always put the safety of our dance family FIRST!
Check the Band App prior to your class for any important updates.
ALL students, parents/guardians and CSOD staff must wear a mask during drop off and pick up.
Students and instructors will be required to wear a mask during class (we will be closely monitoring the students while they are dancing in their masks and take breaks if and when needed.)
DROP OFF PROCEDURE
ALL students and parents/guardians must wear a mask during drop off.
Parents/guardians will not be allowed inside the studio/waiting area as we are limiting the number of people in
the building at any one time.
Students should be brought to the front studio door no more than 5 minutes prior to their class and no later than
5 minutes after class time is set to start (please be sure to have the student’s “dancer tag” with you).
Please follow social distance guidelines outside while waiting for the student’s admittance into the building.
The students, one at a time, will have their temperature taken at the door with a touchless thermometer. Please
wait until we get the temperature before leaving. If the temperature is at or above 100.4 F, they will be unable to
enter and will be excused for the day. If they are under 100.4 F, they will come inside the waiting room where
they will go to our sanitation station and sanitize their hands. They will then proceed to their own specific socially
distanced spots. Students may not linger in the waiting room.
Students should arrive in their dance attire, mask and street shoes. There will be no changing of clothes allowed once
in the studio. At this time, we are unable to help dancers with their shoes, hair, accessories, bathroom breaks, etc. so
please be sure that they are self-sufficient with all of this before returning to in-person classes. If possible, please use
bathroom at home before coming to the studio. Of course, we understand if the need arises to use the bathroom
while at the studio and it will be open. It is just easier all the way around if it can be avoided.
Students should limit what they bring to class to dance shoes for that day and a water bottle. (A turned off cell phone
will be allowed if necessary and any extras* when required). The dancer will enter the dance space and be directed to
a “my stuff” spot. They will leave their minimal belongings on that spot. They will then continue to their “dance spot”
once advised by their instructor all while maintaining social distancing. At the end of class, they will stay on their “my
stuff” spot until they are called to exit out the side door.
*We will keep you up to date through the BAND app on days that we will require the student to bring anything extra such as a yoga mat, props, workout bands or anything else “extra”. We will give you plenty of time to acquire these extra items before we ask you to bring them.
ALL students will need to wear shoes and tights AT ALL times. Lyrical and Acro students, please wear jazz shoes
(preferred) or ballet slippers. Half-sole shoes and bare feet are not allowed at this time.
PICK UP PROCEDURE
ALL students and parents/guardians must wear a mask during pick up.
Students will sanitize their hands before departure.
Parents/guardians should arrive 5 minutes before class end time with your dancer’s tag.
Students will be dismissed out of the side door one at a time in the order in which the parents/guardians are lined
up outside with their dancer’s tag in view. Please remember to maintain social distancing while waiting outside
for your student to be dismissed.
Please be prompt as these procedures depend highly on your cooperation to flow smoothly.
We thank you in advance.
High touch points in the studio and lobby will be sanitized between classes and the entire school will be thoroughly
cleaned at the end of each night.
Bathroom will be cleaned after each use.
Instructors will not be giving any tactile corrections only verbal.
Students, instructors and staff must self-quarantine if they have any COVID-19 symptoms, have been in contact with
someone who has COVID-19 or have travelled outside of the state in the past 14 days.
We deem the right to cancel any classes or go full virtual if we feel there is a danger of COVID-19.
Important announcements may be made on a moment’s notice via the BAND app so please allow notifications to stay up to date. We know the mention of the BAND app is on this list twice…it is THAT important!
Have fun, learn and grow! Phew…even though this bullet point is last on the list, it is certainly not least. In fact, it is
always our guiding force!
Thank you so much!
