COVID-19 UPDATE

SDW has an established COVID-19 response and notification plan. Should SDW become aware of any potential cases or contamination, all current students, staff and teachers will be notified via email as soon as possible. Should an event occur, SDW will take all necessary steps to properly close off, disinfect and clear any studio or area needed.  Should the need arise, any classes affected may move to virtual Zoom classes until the studio is cleared for classes to resume. There will be no refunds for classes that are required to move to Zoom.  Please refer to our SDW SAFE RETURN video below! 

Please note the following SDW Safe Return Protocols and Policies:

  • SDW has an established onsite COVID supervisor who will be in attendance during all class hours to ensure all protocols are followed. 

  • SDW staff and dancers are the only people permitted in the building during class hours. 

  • Pre and Mini dancers may be accompanied by one adult during their classes only.

  • Juniors and older must enter without an adult. 

  • Dancers age 7 and older must enter without an adult. 

  • Class sizes have been reduced and dance spaces have been marked to clearly indicate 6 feet of distance from other dancers during class. 

  • Teachers have been trained and are prepared to conduct classes to allow for social distancing.

  • Any person entering the building must wear a mask at all times 

  • The drinking fountain, refrigerator and back eating areas are closed. No food or eating in the studio.  

  • Dance spaces will be cleaned between each class. 

  • Bathrooms, common areas and door handles will be cleaned hourly. 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR SDW DANCERS

  • All dancers (besides Pre dancers) must wear masks before AND DURING their dance classes.

  • Only Pre and Mini dancers will be allowed to have parent accompaniment inside SDW at this time.

    • No more than one parent per dancer. We ask that parents take every measure to leave siblings at home if possible.

  • For dancers who will be dropped off, please be sure the studio has the contact info of whoever is bringing your dancer to class each night in case we need to get a hold of them while the dancers are in class.

  • SDW staff will escort our dancers into the building no more than 5 minutes before the start of their class.

    • We are aware that coming into the studio alone is new for some kids, and we will act and organize accordingly to provide a safe and stress free atmosphere. 

  • Instruction time will end about 5 minutes early in order to organize the dancers and begin disinfecting the dance space.

    • SDW staff will lead all dancers out of the building through our second door to meet their parents.

    • Please wait outside the door to meet them. 

  • Dancers should wear street shoes that are easy to remove and put on to make transition times between classes flow easily. 

  • Dancers will have their temperatures taken using a no-touch scanner before entering the classroom. If they have a temperature above 100.3 degrees, they will be able to schedule a make-up class or can attend class virtually on ZOOM. 

  • Dancers will use hand sanitizer before entering class and sit in their assigned spot until the teacher directs them to their assigned dance space. Dancers will be given hand sanitizer at the end of class. 

  • Dancers should bring a small bag into the dance room with them that contains their dance shoes, water bottle and any personal belongings necessary for class. They will place their street shoes and cover-up clothing in the bag during class. PLEASE SILENCE ANY PHONES OR DEVICES BROUGHT INTO THE CLASSROOM.  

  • Any dancer who does not comply with social distance or causes unnecessary danger to the health and safety of their classmates or teacher will be asked to continue future classes virtually on ZOOM. 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR SDW PARENTS

  • Parents will not be allowed to enter the studio during class hours unless their child is a Pre or Mini dancer. 

  • NO ONE WILL BE PERMITTED INTO SDW WITHOUT WEARING A MASK. 

  • Parents will drop off or wait outside with their dancers until an SDW staff member escorts them in. We will allow dancers in the studio 5 minutes before their classes begin. Dancers will be escorted out of Door 2 after their final class of the day. Parents should wait outside of this door to meet them at the end of their class. Please do not be late. 

  • Any questions regarding payments, etc. should be done over the phone or via email.

  • Parents must consider the following before bringing their child to dance each day:

    • Have they or their child experienced any of the following symptoms recently? Fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, muscle or body aches, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea? If yes, stay home. 

    • Have you participated in international travel by airplane in the last 14 days? If yes, stay home.
