Re-opening Procedures

Policies for dancers returning to the studio

  • Feel Sick? Stay home! Parents should do a quick health check before bringing their dancer to the studio (new fever or respiratory symptoms not attributed to an existing condition)
  • Dancers should wear masks when entering and exiting the facility and classrooms
  • Masks are encouraged while dancing to the tolerance of each individual dancer
  • Maintain social distancing in the studio
  • Arrive on time and no earlier than 5 minutes before your first class
  • Use hand sanitizer upon entry and between classes
  • Remove street shoes upon entry
  • Take your belongings with you into the classroom

Safety is our top priority

At Flourish, the health and safety of our staff, students, guests, and communities has always been our highest priority – a commitment that has only been heightened at this time in history. That is why we have chosen to become certified as a “Safer Studio” following the guidelines provided by More than Just Great Dancing.   This accreditation is supported by using local and national guidelines to inform best practices for service continuity and re-opening in-person services.

Steps we take to keep everyone safe

  • Sick dancers, staff and parents must stay home
  • Daily staff/faculty health checks
  • Drop-off only - lobby areas are closed (until further notice)
  • Social distancing markers in the studios
  • Schedule adapted to minimize students changing classrooms during their visit
  • Curriculum adapted to minimize contact and eliminate the sharing of props
  • Enhanced studio cleaning procedures
  • Hand sanitizer readily available

Flourish is tech-enabled!

While we are excited to return to the classroom, we understand and respect that some dancers may wish to continue learning from home. That’s why each studio is equipped with a state of the art video conferencing setup and each dancer has access to live online instruction with direct feedback from their instructors and peers from the comfort and safety of their own home. 

Should the need arise, we are fully prepared to transition back to distance learning without missing a beat!

Visual cues for social dis-dancing

With curricular, procedural, and facility changes, we are doing our best to get back dancing in the safest way possible.
