Dancers and their families have continued to do an excellent job wearing their masks in classes and following protocols to help keep everyone safe and our classes running smoothly. As a reminder, please visit this link frequently to stay up to date with the newest symptoms and instructions. Do not bring your dancer to the studio if they are displaying any of the listed symptoms, if you are waiting for covid-19 test results, or if your family has been in close contact with a positive covid-19 case.
All dancers are expected to wear appropriate, fitted dance attire to classes. Teachers prefer bodysuits and tights for most classes, always with hair pulled back. For ballet, dancers must have their hair in a neat bun.
Competitions have been hard at work to secure venues and come up with strategic plans that help to ensure dancer safety. As a reminder, competition fees will be charged to your account Nov 15. Competition credits from 2020 will be posted to your accounts Nov 15 as well.
Parking Lot Safety
With the use of exterior entrances, the parking lot at Step By Step, as well as the street, are even busier than normal.
Late Pick Ups or Arrivals
As always, dancers and families are encouraged to be on time for dance classes. With the cooler weather and darker evenings upon us, dancers whose parents are late should go to the front lobby to wait inside until their ride arrives. Dancers should not wait outside alone for their ride. Dancers that arrive late should knock loudly on their studio door to let their teacher know they are waiting.
Hangers for winter jackets will be available in each studio starting soon. Dancers should also do their best to wear footwear that is quick to slip on and off.
The Dance Parents Association is excited to offer 2 new fundraisers. Both would make fantastic Christmas gifts and will be picked up from the studio in December (date tba).
