Edge "Dance Safe" procedures

We are very excited to see our dancers back in the studio for our 15th Season.    Our instructors cannot wait to get started.  

 

 “Dance Safe” Updated Guidelines for the start of our Season:

  • Parents are asked to assess their child’s health before coming to the studio.  If your child or any member of the household seems unwell or has any symptoms of illness, do not bring the dancer into the dance studio.  Classes may be made up at a later time.

  • The studio lobby will be closed!  Parents (with masks on) will bring their dancers to the studio door once their class is ready to begin.  

  • Parents should return to their car during the class. Parents are not permitted into the studio at this time.  We will accommodate parents of our youngest dancers if necessary at the start of the season.   

  • Students should wear masks as they enter and exit the studio.  Masks are required in class. 

  • Students will use hand sanitizer on their way in and out of the studio.  

  • Edge Staff and faculty will be wearing masks.  

  • Students should respect the Social Distance Spaces assigned to them and not approach staff unless requested to do so.  

  • Upon entering studios, students may leave their personal belongings in an assigned space.  

  • Dancers are not to bring bags or extra belongings into the studio.  

  • Temperatures may be taken at the door upon arrival.  

  • Please ensure that dancers are on time for class and picked up promptly.  There is not lobby space available.   

  • Sanitation stations will be available at the entrance of each studio. 

  • Dance rooms, lobbies and restrooms will be cleaned and disinfected regularly.    

  • Dance wear sales by appointment only.  Email for needs: info@edgedancecenter.com

  • EDC will uphold a notification policy in which all Edge families will be notified if there is any indication of direct Covid 19 contact in our studios. 

**These procedures are subject to change based on local and state regulations. You will be notified of any changes through email.

If you are registered for a Simulcast class - the class links will be sent out generally around 4pm each week on your dance day. 

UPDATE: COVID FAQ'S:

 

Are classes available in the studio?

All classes that are offered on our current class schedule are available in our physical studio.  Most of the classes are being offered simultaneously through Virtual instruction on Zoom. 

 

Do the dancers have to wear masks?

Yes, as mandated by local and state health organizations, masks must be worn for indoor activities.  Our smallest ballerinas ages 2-3 are encouraged but not required to wear masks.  

 

Is there protocol in place for dancers?

We have “Dance Safe” procedures in place for our studio. These procedures will be updated regularly as determined by the State and Local Health mandates. The updated procedures can be found on our website homepage

 

Can I still enroll after classes begin?

We are happy to accept new students in our classes as long as maximum enrollment has not been reached.  We have limited class sizes available due to Social Distancing requirements.  

 

My child does not do well with online classes. If classes are mandated to return to ALL virtual, am I able to withdraw my dancer? 

Yes.  You can withdraw a dancer at any time simply by emailing Edge Dance Center before the first class of the upcoming month.  Once tuition is paid for the current month it will not be refunded for withdrawal without notification.  

 

Will there be a recital or show at the end of the Season?

Edge has tentatively scheduled dates for the Recital and will release dates once confirmed.  We are prepared if backup options become necessary.  Costumes will be sized and ordered as usual.  There will be an open line of communication regarding recital plans.  

 

Will you still offer make up classes for those that are missed either virtually or in the studio? 

Because of limited class size in our studios, make up classes will have to be scheduled ahead of time. Speak with your teacher or Edge Customer Service Rep. to coordinate make up classes.
