COVID-19 Response Plan

  • I am monitoring and following the Nova Scotia Health Authority updates regularly.
  • I also belong to the ScotDance Canada Emergency Task Force.
  • Only dancers are permitted into the studio/waiting room and parents/guardians must remain outside.
  • Dancers should arrive dressed in their dance attire and wear knee socks and dance slippers (no bare feet).
  • Class sizes are small with up to 6 dancers in each class.
  • Social distancing will be encouraged and dancers will remain in the same class bubble for each term.
  • This means that dancers cannot attend a different class to make up for a missed class.
  • Dancers (and myself) must sanitize when entering and exiting the studio (sanitizer is provided).
  • Dancers (any myself) must sanitize the bathroom after each use (spray sanitizer is provided).
  • As per the latest health authority update, dancers should not wear masks while exercising.
  • Dancers (and myself) must use proper cough and sneeze etiquette.
  • Dancers must bring their own water bottles and not share.
  • I will keep attendance with specific dates and times of each dancer, in case we need this information for contact tracing.
  • If dancers experience a cough, fever or sickness of any kind they must stay home from class.
  • If I experience a cough, fever or sickness of any kind I will cancel classes.
  • I am spacing my classes 15 minutes apart so there are fewer people in contact.
  • In between classes, I will sanitize the high traffic touch areas, including the bathroom.
  • I have removed towels from the bathroom.      
  • Dancers will dry their hands with paper towel and spray sanitizer after each use.
  • It’s important for dancers to arrive on time (no more than 5 minutes early) and be picked up on time.
  • In the case of a possible shut down due to COVID-19, I will be offering Zoom classes in place of face-to-face classes.
  • The price remains the same for Zoom classes.
