Mask should be worn in all areas of the dance studio by everyone. Exceptions can be made for our preschool students, or those with medical conditions as necessary. Please contact the director ahead of time if you or your dancer will need such an exemption.
We have re-taped our dance floors to give distancing guidance, and provided our staff with the training to facilitate this.
Dancers must abide by the dress code and dress for dance class. Hair that is long enough to touch the dancer’s shoulders must be pulled back.
There are no street shoes allowed in the studio.
Our front doors are now one-way. All dancers should now enter the building through the LEFT-hand front door When facing the building. Our exit door will be the RIGHT. All dancers will use hand sanitizer at the beginning of class, and throughout as necessary, and will again hand sanitize before they leave the building.
Dancers will be deliberately distanced during mask breaks and water breaks. All of their belongings will be placed in their dedicated location at the beginning of class. Shoes, outer garments, and water bottle will go under the table or in the cubby to which the dancer is assigned at the beginning of class.
If a dancer needs to stay home for any reason, the dancer may attend the class via Zoom if arrangements have been made. Please do not assume that your class is happening by Zoom unless prior arrangements are made. If your dancer needs to stay home, please notify Tony by text or phone call before noon on the day of your class (or the day before for morning classes) at (978) 254-7037.

Dancers can then be walked inside by their grown-ups. Grown-ups may also come in the lobby at the end of class to help with dismissal. Please wait on the indicated places marker on the sidewalk to the LEFT side of the doors until a staff member opens the door.

After class your dancer will be accompanied to your car or you can wait on one of our exit spots marked on the sidewalk to the RIGHT of the doors.
