COVID-19 Studio Policies and Upgrades

(Updated January 1, 2021)

To be in our space, all teachers, staff and students need to be able to honestly answer yes to check all 4 Boxes below via our Safety First Agreement: 


In the past 10 days, 
✅ NO COVID-19 symptoms
✅ Not near someone who has symptoms or tested positive 
✅ Wore a mask when social distancing is hard to do
✅ Maintained 6’ minimum social distance 

According to the CDC if you or a member of your household has had COVID-19, you need at least 10 days from the first day of symptoms and/or a negative test before you can return to the studio.  20 days if your symptoms were severe.

The upgrades and new health procedures will be constantly reviewed and updated as more information comes from the CDC and our local and state health officials.   

Anyone who wishes to return to the studio will be required to sign our Safety First Waiver.


Cleaning removes germs, dirt, and impurities from surfaces or objects.  Cleaning works by using soap (or detergent) and water to physically remove germs from surfaces.  

Sanitize lowers the number of germs. Sanitizing is meant to reduce, not kill, the occurrence and growth of bacteria, viruses and fungi.

Disinfect kills germs on surfaces or objects.  According to the WHO (World Health Organization), if you think a surface may be infected with COVID-19, clean it with a disinfectant to kill the virus in order to protect yourself and others.

North Carolina Current Phase:  Gyms including dance studios can open at 30% capacity with social distancing and face masks.
