SAFETY PROTOCOLS for 2020-2021


1.  NO ONE is allowed to wait in the studio.  You must remain in your car until your class is     

      "called for", your teacher will post the "class color" sign on the door and wave to let you 

       know your class is ready.

2.   Students will enter through our regular side door entrance and exit through the front       

      door. To comply with social distancing and gathering number guidelines only dancers will

      be allowed to enter the studio.  (Parents/friends/siblings need to wait outside)

3.  ANYONE entering the studio must have their temp taken and must be within 1 degree to

      remain for class and they will​ be given hand sanitizer.  DO NOT send your student to

      ASOD sick!!  Students are not required to mask but they are welcome to wear one.

4.  You need to speak with your dancer NOW regarding proper distancing as well as following        directions.  Students/families that cannot follow directions will be asked to leave for the

      safety of others. (Follow Directions or find another activity...PERIOD)

5.  Each individual studio room #1, #2 & #3 will be running on 55 minute schedules with the          start times slightly off to keep the lobby from getting overloaded at any one time.               

      Make sure you know your class name & location to prevent confusion and wandering.

6.  Students need to bring their own water.  WE will have some for emergencies but to further

      limit contact, bringing your own is best!

7.  All studio door knobs, bathroom facilities, music equipment, etc. will be wiped down at the        beginning and end of each class.

8.  In some classes we will be holding hands, following the leader, making circles, partners,

      etc, however, we feel confident that by using the proper protocols upon entering the 

      studio we have lowered our risk and can safely have fun.

9.  Students will be asked to hand sanitize or wash hands before leaving the studio.

10.  ASOD does not have the space to socially distance and babysit dancers who are not

       picked up on time.  Please make sure your schedule works to keep not only your dancer           safe but others as well.

If you are looking for a easy way to stay "in the know" with ASOD, make sure to check out the BAND app. Simply contact Miss Sarah and she will send you the link to get you connected with your dancers classes.
