CWDA's Response to 
COVID-19

Arrival

  • Please take your dancers temperature before sending them to class. If your dancer is showing and symptoms of illness (sore throat, cough, fever) Please keep them home.

 

  • It is the parent’/student’s choice whether they will attend class wearing a mask. It is also the teacher’s choice whether to wear a mask while instructing.

 

  • Once the dancer has entered the studio, they must wash their hands (20 seconds)

 

  • There will be no parents in the lobby before, during or after class.

 

  • For younger dancers, (ages 6 & under) parents can assist in washing hands before class and must leave the lobby once class begins.

  • Students must come already dressed in the appropriate attire and hairstyle. There will be no changing in the dressing room or bathrooms.

 

  • When waiting in the lobby (not the dressing room) dancers must sit in a designated spot. These will be 6ft apart.

 

  • Please bring only what you need, for example shoes. If you take 2 or more classes a week you may use a locker.

 

  • Lockers will no longer be shared. Staff will reassign lockers of those currently sharing.

 

  • There will be no snacking/ hanging out in the lobby or dressing rooms.

 

During Class

  • Students will remain 300 square feet apart and keep hands to themselves (Teachers will help facilitate this).

 

  • Make sure students bring their own water bottle. Make sure it has a lid and avoid straws.

 

  • A touchless hand sanitizer dispenser will be provided in the studios. Students must use after leaving the studio and as they see fit throughout the class.

 

  • Teachers will maintain 6ft distance away from dancers only giving verbal corrections.

 

  • Students cannot be picked up early to avoid loitering in the lobby and students waiting outside.

 

 

After Class

  • Dancers must be picked up promptly after class and parents must wait in car except for students under 6 years of age

Older dancers with cell phones may have their parent text them when they have parked. A staff member will be present to help.
