COVID POLICIES

Updated August 28, 2021

We are able to keep masks optional at Dance Inspirations because we have the space to social distance while taking class.  As students go back to school over the next few weeks, we do expect more colds and illness not related to covid to appear.  We wanted to remind everyone of our covid policies, last season by following these policy’s we were able to stay very healthy.  

Covid procedures at Dance Inspirations. 

Staff members - All staff members of Dance Inspirations are vaccinated and screened each day as well as temperatures taken. Masks are optional for staff and required to be tested for covid if they have any covid symptoms.  

Waiting rooms remain closed. ​No parents or guests are allowed inside the studio. Dancers ages 5 and under may be escorted to the check in table but parents must leave once children are checked in.

Check in - Students may approach the check-in table 1 at a time, answer covid screening questions (see below) and temperature has been taken with a ​Non-Contact Infrared Thermometer.

  • If they answer NO to all questions, they will be allowed to enter the studio and assigned a dance space that only they will use.
  • If the answer to ANY QUESTIONS is YES, the student will not be allowed to participate in the dance class for that day.
    • Students who answer YES are encouraged to contact their doctor and to be tested for Covid.
