COVID-19 Safety Plan & Guidelines

These “COVID Safety Rules” are not comprehensive and may be revised at any time. Once again, your health and safety while in our studio is extremely important to us. We expect everyone to abide by the rules and guidelines described above to keep each other safe.
As a business, if we determine a dancer or guardian is violating these guidelines, we reserve the right to deny entry into the studio or send them home.
Kindly note that if there are any restrictions reimposed with the evolving pandemic circumstances, we will not be able to provide any carryforwards. No account freeze or carryforwards, all classes will continue online.

Disclaimer as to Coronavirus-Related Liabilities

In addition to being unprecedented, the coronavirus pandemic remains a highly fluid situation. While the state and city have permitted businesses to reopen, the risk posed by coronavirus remains. While we have taken our best precautions to keep you and our dancers healthy and safe while inside the studio, unfortunately, we cannot guarantee a dancer will not become ill. This being the case, it is essential to know your choice to attend classes is at your own risk. You assume all risk and liability associated with the coronavirus infection.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. Coronavirus is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person to person contact.
