COVID-19 Precautions during Re-Opening

Posted by legacyballet Posted in Main Blog, Studio News and Events

Legacy Ballet cares very deeply about every single one of our students, their families and our employees. As we re-open during the wave of Covid-19 chaos, we are following the recommended guidelines put forth by the Oregon Health Authority, and ask you please respect our policies as we hopefully continue to move forward towards our goals of re-opening, staying open and staying healthy.

Our class sizes are limited in capacity to cohorts, sized determined by the OHA (Prek-12) per class.

All our students are asked to arrive ready for class, limiting personal items brought with them to a full water bottle and their dance shoes.

Parents will check their student in at the door designated for their class, Studio A, Studio B and Studio C all now have their own separate entrance/exit.  Check in requirements: No contact temp check/screening, name of person dropping off and picking up student, with contact info if different than contact info in our registration system. Hand sanitizer as entering the building.  Parents are NOT allowed to enter the facility, they can observe class online through Zoom (codes will be emailed prior to the session starting).

Students will be kept 6 ft or more apart prior, during and after class(es) with the assistance of their instructors and the tape/markings we have added to each studio space. Students 5 years and older are required to wear a mask during class.  For students under 5 years if age, face masks are optional but highly recommended.  All student belongings are placed 6 ft apart in marked spots. If a medical condition or disability makes it difficult to wear a mask, accommodations can be requested by calling 541-791-9078.  Per OHA guidelines, accommodations are unfortunately NOT to simply allow the person to not wear a mask in the place of business, but instead to accommodate by providing an alternative way to receive services, ie, our online Zoom classes.

Currently no “hands on” corrections are being given during dance classes. Tumbling classes will be limiting drills that share equipment, sanitizing equipment in between students, and any drills requiring spots, our coaches will be wearing their required masks as well using hand sanitizer in between students.

15 minute breaks in between each dance class and 30 minute breaks in between tumbling classes are scheduled into each day to allow for sanitizing high touch areas, the floors, mats and other equipment.  High touch areas outside the classrooms and bathrooms are also cleaned in between each cohort.

Each class is also offered online through Zoom, so virtual participation can be used if you feel uncomfortable attending yet in person.

We appreciate how understanding and supportive everyone has been through these unprecedented times, we truly appreciate it.
