In-studio classes are BACK!

 

Hello Dance Families,
 

We have some wonderful news to share ... Yolo County has now moved into the ORANGE TIER and we are able to have our dance classes INSIDE the studio! 

 

All classes will be held on their scheduled day & time that appears on our normal Class Schedule. We are beyond grateful for the support we have received from all of our dance families over the past few months and want to thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts for your continued trust, patience and support of our studio and teachers! 

Health & safety is our utmost concern

  • We are implementing many safety & sanitation protocols to protect your dancers as they come through the doors. 

  • As we prepare for in-studio classes to resume, we will proceed with all safety precautions as recommended by the county and state. The safety of our students, dance families and staff is of utmost importance and we appreciate your cooperation with any procedures that will be put in place.




Here’s what we are doing: 

  • All students and faculty will need to be wearing face coverings while waiting for classes outside AND while taking classes inside

  • We will continue to focus on cleaning our facility more diligently with recommended sanitizing products on a daily basis. 

  • Garbage will be removed daily. Any personal items left behind at the studio will be thrown away. There will be no lost and found at this time. 

  • All staff will continue to wash their hands and use sanitizer frequently.

  • Both of our lobby areas are temporarily closed for parents and students to use in between and during classes. Our Front Lobby will still be available if families need to purchase shoes, tights or other dance apparel during our regular business hours Monday - Friday from 4:00pm - 7:30pm.

  • Hand sanitizing stations will be available for all students to use as they enter and exit the dance rooms.

  • We will be practicing social distancing inside and outside the studio. This means we will not be giving hugs or hi-fives, and will be maintaining a distance of at least 6 feet apart from each other.

  • Our restroom will now serve as a Family Restroom for single or family use only. Anyone using the restroom will need to lock the door while in use. 

  • Classes will be released about 5 minutes early so staff can clean and sanitize dance rooms in between classes. 




Entering and Exiting the Studio (please read):

  • Face coverings are required upon arrival and to enter the studio(s). Students are required to wear their face covering during their classes.

  • We will be using the front, back and side doors of all dance rooms for safe entrances and exits to avoid congestion. 

  • Students should arrive about 3-5 minutes prior to their class start time. 

  • Students will need to wait outside of their assigned dance room on set markers spaced 6 feet apart, and wait for their teachers to invite them inside. 

  • Students will enter the dance room one at a time to maintain social distancing guidelines and will be assigned a designated spot for their class once they are inside. 

  • Parents will need to make arrangements for an on time pick-up once their child’s class ends.




Instructions for Students:

  • All students will need to be wearing face coverings while waiting for classes outside AND while taking classes inside

  • All students will be required to wear appropriate shoes at all times and in all classes (no bare feet or socks in class or in the parking lot). For contemporary, lyrical and tumbling classes, students can wear either jazz or ballet shoes. 

  • DRESS CODE: Please review our studio DRESS CODE for all classes, CLICK HERE >>

  • Dancers will need to arrive fully dressed in appropriate dance attire and will not be allowed to change their clothes before or after any of their class(es). The student lounge will be closed for the time being. 

  • Dancers will be permitted to bring a small bag/backpack to carry their dance shoes and a water bottle. Water will be available for sale at the Front Lobby of the studio. Please do NOT have students share their water with other students.




Instructions for Parents: 

  • We ask that parents wait outside or in their vehicles when bringing their child to the studio. Please have your student wait in the designated area outside the dance room until a staff member or teacher welcomes them inside. Designated areas for students to wait outside will be clearly marked along the sidewalk leading to the dance rooms. 

  • Dancers who have breaks in between classes will need to be picked up by a parent or wait in their parent’s vehicle until their next class. The student lounge will be closed for the time being. 

  • For our younger students, it would be best for a parent to remain on-site in their vehicle in case their child needs any assistance or needs to use our Family restroom. If a younger student does need to use the Family restroom during their class, either a teacher or staff member will accompany the younger student to the restroom, or make their parent aware by locating them in the parking lot.




Healthy Tips for Families:

  • If a child has a 99.9F fever or above, please do not send them to dance class. 

  • It is best for dancers to NOT enter the studio if they are feeling ill in any way or experiencing any cold-like symptoms including: cough, congestion, runny nose, sore throat, body aches, fevers or chills.

  • Provide your dancer with their own personal water bottle, and do NOT have them share their water with other students. Water will be available for sale at the Front Lobby of the studio.

  • Please reiterate to your child not to touch their face, mouth or nose while in class. 

 

 

 

ZOOM Classes Moving Forward

 

  • Virtual Classes via Zoom will be made available to students that are not ready or able to attend classes in person. To request that your child continue to take classes via Zoom, please reach out to us and we will make that available to you. Only students that request Zoom in advance will be able to login virtually at this time. Please email us at info@RiverCityDance.net if you have any questions.

    • PLEASE NOTE: Students that are participating in the Annual Recital in June will need to return to in-person classes no later than March 1st so they can prepare for their performance with their classmates.
