Putting Our Best Foot Forward
Tackling COVID at SDDA for the 2021-22 Season

Studio Policies to Manage COVID

Studio Procedures

Registration is open for returning and new students to take in-studio classes. Our 2021-22 season is designed to culminate in our annual recital, scheduled for June 1-4, 2022. 

SDDA desires to keep our dancers, families, and staff safe. SDDA is adopting a modified COVID policy to insure that students receive the highest-quality dance education while having fun and minimizing the risks of interruption to their dance studio life.

 

To safely open for classes on September 7, 2021, our modified COVID policy will ensure we limit the amount of close contact between students and faculty at all times. While the public policy is "RED," these steps include:

  • Temperature check of all staff upon entering the facility

  • Proudly vaccinated faculty and staff

  • Mandatory masking of faculty and staff

  • Mandatory masking of students and guests (ages 5 and up) upon entering or exiting the facility, and while occupying common areas of SDDA (including lobbies, restrooms, playroom and student lounge)

  • Optional masking of students while actively dancing

  • Floor markings in studios to indicate appropriate physical distancing

  • Limit of 1 (masked) lobby guest per student to reduce crowding

  • Sanitization of classrooms before and after each class​

  • Hand sanitizer provided throughout the facility

Monitor and Adjust Policy

SDDA reserves the right to adjust our classes or policies at any time due to COVID. However, we will provide reasonable accommodation for all of our dancers and their families.

Instruction Accommodation

In the event SDDA is unable to host live classes, or when a student is restricted from attending in-person classes due to exposure to COVID, or due to a positive COVID test, SDDA will provide access to make-up classes and/or virtual / on-demand dance training.

Policy and Information Updates 

We pledge to maintain an open line of communication with our entire SDDA family, and we will adjust our COVID polices, if needed, upon receipt of new relevant guidance from the CDC and Arkansas Department of Health. This page will serve as our official communication portal. Please see our FAQs below for more.
