In light of COVID-19, we continue to do everything we can to mitigate risk and prevent exposure among the dancers, faculty and staff for the entire dance season regardless of whether protocols are lifted. We are practicing social distancing, wearing face coverings, disinfecting barres, floors, and any other surfaces the dancers might touch between every class. We use a government-approved cleaner throughout the studio to ensure that our campers, dancers, faculty and staff are kept safe.
Face Mask Protocol
*Everyone entering the building is required to wear a face mask while in common areas of the studio. Dancers may remove mask once they are within their dance square.
What You Can Expect this season due to COVID-19:
PLEASE NOTE: THESE POLICIES AND PROCEDURES WILL BE UPDATED BY THE END AUGUST TO COINCIDE WITH OUR 2020/2021 DANCE SEASON.
~ Everyone entering and exiting Take 5 Dance Studio will be required to use hand sanitizer (it will be provided).
~ We are asking dancers and parents to respect social distancing at all times, and are asking the same of parents and families. Please do not congregate in the parking lots. Remain in your cars.
~ Do not drop your dancer off early (you will receive a drop off time when registration confirmation is sent). We realize every family has strict schedules, however, dancers will not be permitted into the studio until greeted by an escort. Drop off will be the EAST SIDE student entrance. Pick up will be at the SOUTH FRONT teachers entrance.
~ We have staggered start and end times to reduce the number of students entering and exiting the building at one time.
~ In each studio, we have created social/physical distance boxes. Using colourful tape to help guide students throughout the class.
~ All students will come dressed, ready for class. Students will require a dance bag for their dance shoes, a water bottle and to put their outside clothing in. This bag will remain with students as the change rooms are currently closed.
~ Only one parent will be permitted into the studio for children age 6 and under). No other parents or family members (including siblings) will be allowed into the studio.
~ Any parent coming into Take 5 Dance must wear a mask.
~ Dancers are discouraged from refilling water bottles during classes. In the case where they need to fill them, a staff member will assist them.
~ If a child or anyone in the household is unwell, the child is not permitted to attend class.
~ Class sizes are limited depending on the size of the room.
~ If Take 5 Dance is required to suspend in-studio classes due to an Emergency Declaration or other required closure(s), all dance classes will continue via Zoom. Clients will continue to pay for classes and will receive a 20% discount on their fees.
~ We will implement any other safety protocols required by the government and/or the health unit.
~ As we are no longer able to share materials and props in classes, dancers may be required to purchase appropriate items and bring these to class each week.
