FALL 2020 SAFETY GUIDELINES

Your safety is our main priority as we begin the new dance season

Barefoot's additional policies in response to COVID-19

  • Masks must be worn to enter the building, and within the lobby and open areas. Masks will be worn while in the classroom. Students in the classroom will be closely monitored to ensure they are not being overworked while wearing a mask. Breaks and appropriate measures will be taken for them.

  • Water fountain will only be used for refilling. Please pack in your dance bag, hand sanitizer, a mask, and a labeled water-bottle. 

  • Contactless temperature checks will be taken for each student and patron that enters the building.

  • Hand sanitizer will be required by staff and students before and after every lesson. 

  • Dancers will be socially distanced through floor and barre markings. 

  • Parents should drop off and pick up dancers. We ask that parents with students in Level 1 and up resort to a drop off and pick up option. NOTE: For our preschool/primary dance students we understand parents may need to help them. Please be sure to practice our facility policies while in the building. Only one patron per student will be allowed in the building at a time. 

  • Due to limited space for social distancing if any parents/family/individuals are in the building and not taking class (in the lobby waiting area etc.) masks will be required to be worn while in the building. (In order to watch your student classes may be viewed via zoom by request per instructor).

  • Studios will be disinfected and sanitized accordingly.

  • Students, staff and family are required to be screened at home prior to coming to Barefoot.

  • If you or a family member are showing any symptoms or have tested positive for COVID-19, you will not be given admittance to enter the building.

  • As Barefoot cannot account for everyone at all times, we expect our customers to practice safety and awareness during this time.

  • Barefoot will not be held liable for any COVID-19 cases in our customers as it will be your utmost responsibility to self screen. 

  • If we feel a student is exhibiting symptoms and may be a risk to our staff or other students we will kindly dismiss them from class, take them to an isolated area and contact a parent or guardian to pick them up. (with our patrons doing pre-screening we hope to avoid ever having to utilize this measure). 

  • In the event that a student or staff test positive for COVID-19 please notify the studio immediately. If the student has been in contact with any Barefoot staff or student, all patrons will be notified and appropriate CDC quarantine measures will be taken.

  • In the event that the dance studio has to close for any period of time families will be informed and if necessary, appropriate prorating will be applied to your dance account.  

  • Barefoot will continue to monitor the health and safety of our customers and community and make decisions that we feel keep everyone safe.

  • Anyone who does not choose to adhere to these policies will be asked to leave the facility.
