Parents will drop off students at “drop off station.” Parents will also need to sign the CDC Accident Waiver and Release of Liability Form prior to their dancer entering the building. This form will be brought out to your cars. (This exceeds the mandatory state guidelines)

  2. ​Parents must conduct their own health assessment of their dancer prior to arriving at CDC. This includes taking temperature and discussing all COVID-19 symptoms. Dancers may not enter the facility if they are exhibiting any symptoms or have been exposed to COVID-19

  8. Upon entering the dance studio, dancers will be directed to stand on a colored box in a 6x6 grid box with their belongings. Dancers will have a matching square in the front of the mirror. Students will be directed one color at a time to place their belongs on the matching color box in the front of the mirror and then return to their square. Dancers must stay inside their grid box to dance for the entire class. Drink breaks will be directed by the teacher and done one color at a time to ensure social distancing is maintained.
