At Open Arts, we want to ensure you that we are committed to the safety and well-being of you and your dancer.
For our 2022-2023 Season we will operate on a "Masks Optional" Policy. We still strongly encourage masking inside the studio whenever possible and especially during the first 2 weeks of class after vacations or traveling and when anyone in your household has been sick or exposed.
Our lobby is now open for parents and guests. Please keep in mind that our lobby is small and space is limited. Thankk you for being mindful and respectful of all guests inside the studio and keeping noise to a minimum as to not disrupt the dancers who are learning in class.
DANCER DROP-OFF & PICK-UP
Dancers and families can now enter and exit via our front door.
We will no longer be dismissing dancers out the back door, so please discuss your pick-up plan with dancers before each class:
Who is picking up your dancer
Should your dancer meet you outside or wait in the lobby until you arrive to pick them up
Discuss parking lot safety & make sure dancers know to never wait outside alone but come back inside and wait in the lobby if you are running late.
In addition! Please use extra caution when entering and exiting the parking lot. Drive slowly and look out for dancers and small children, especially during high-traffic class transition times.
VIRTUAL & MAKE-UP CLASS POLICY
If you or someone in your household isn't feeling well, has a fever, or presents with symptoms of COVID-19, please stay home and attend class virtually or we can always schedule a make-up for missed classes during any regularly scheduled class in your child's age range. You will need to RSVP for online class access by 3:00pm on the day of your child's class using the Online Reservation Form (coming soon).
OTHER IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTES
Hand sanitizer and disposable masks are available at the Front Door for dancers and guests to use when they enter and exit the studio.
The water fountains can only be used to refill Water Bottles, so be sure your dancer brings one with them to class each week. WE DO NOT HAVE CUPS FOR WATER BREAKS - if they will need water while at the studio, be sure to bring a bottle and have the Front Desk staff re-fill your bottle as needed.
We will continue cleaning and disinfecting our bathrooms, floors, surfaces, and other studio areas regularly.
HEPA Air Purifiers have been installed in both studios to re-circulate the air 3-4 times per class session.
As always, if you have any questions. please let me know. Thank you, Ms. Maia
