Safety Precautions

Until further notice, Dance 101 plans to enforce the following safety precautions to avoid the spread of COVID-19: 

  • Everyone must remain six feet apart at all times. As a result, class sizes will be reduced. Also, the amount of people allowed to be in the lobby will be limited. However, physical distancing may not always be possible, and someone may inadvertently come within six feet.    

  • There will be regular cleaning and sanitation. The studio, including props and mats, will be disinfected between each in-person class. 
  • Only 1 parent or guardian may pick up and drop off. 

  • Anyone experiencing any fever, cough, repeated sneezing, or other flu-like symptoms is not permitted on premises.  

  • Everyone must wash or sanitize their hands prior to entering and leaving the studio. We have set up additional hand-sanitizing stations.  
  • The drinking fountains and community dresser will be closed. Please bring your own water bottle and shoes. 
  • The Lost and Found will be closed. Please call if you’ve left an item behind. 
  • There will be designated spots for each child at the barre and at pick up/drop off.  
  • Masks are optional for students and instructors.

Each class meets 40 times from August through May. Our tuition is divided into 10 equal payments paid monthly.
