This page contains information regarding the safety measures in place at DDA Studio/Dreamers Dance Academy to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Please read thoroughly to familiarise yourself with the rules in place.

 

It can seem daunting at first to see so many changes happening to everyday life and I’m aware that some of our younger dancers may find this upsetting or stressful. I want to reassure you that although there are some differences here at DDA, it is still very much the same welcoming, fun, friendly environment that we have always had and we can’t wait to welcome your children back as safely as we can!

1. DO NOT ATTEND CLASS IF YOUR CHILD IS DISPLAYING SYMPTOMS OF COVID 19

2. YOUR CHILD SHOULD NOT ATTEND CLASS IF THEY HAVE RECENTLY BEEN IN CLOSE CONTACT WITH SOMEONE WHO IS DISPLAYING SYMPTOMS OF COVID 19.

3. THE ADULT DROPPING OFF/COLLECTING YOUR CHILD SHOULD NOT BE DISPLAYING SYMPTOMS OF COVID 19 OR HAVE BEEN IN RECENT CONTACT WITH SOMEONE WHO IS.

Safety Measures in Place

 

Before class:

  • All frequently touched/used surfaces will be sterilised

  • Floor markings will be put in place to encourage distancing where possible.

  • A ‘drop off and go’ system will be in place to ensure there is no crowding of parents in the studio. Parents should all wear a mask to drop off and collect if possible.

  • Dancer’s will have their temperature taken using a non-contact temperature gun before entering the studio.

  • Children will arrive ready for class with the correct footwear/clothing on and with no bag if possible.

  • Dancers will be asked to sanitise their hands.

  • Dancers should not enter the studio but wait in the car until a teacher comes out to collect the next class.

  • Registers will be used so that we can operate a ‘track and trace’ system.

 

During class:

  • Distance will be kept between dancers where possible. Floor markings will be used to encourage this. Distancing will not be required from children aged 5 and under.

  • An air purifier with a HEPA filter will be in use throughout all classes to minimise the risk of harmful viruses/bacteria in the air.

  • Windows and doors will be open (not the main door for safety reasons) for fresh air circulation.

  • Partner work will be avoided.

  • Parents will not be allowed to wait in the foyer during class time unless absolutely necessary (for example if their child has additional needs). Any parent that does need to wait inside will be required to wear a mask.

 

After class:

  • Children will sanitise their hands before leaving.

  • Children will be dismissed one at a time at the main door to their parent/guardian.

  • Parents/Guardians should wait in the carpark and only come forward once they can see their child is being dismissed by a teacher. Parents should wear a mask if possible.

  • All dancers must take all rubbish with them. The bin will be out of use.

  • All frequently used surfaces will be sterilised ready for the next class.

Drop Off and Go System

 

  1. We will now be operating a ‘drop off and go’ system to avoid parents/guardians congregating in the foyer area. This means that children will be now be signed in at the main door by a teacher and taken through to the studio by their teacher and not their parent.

  2. Before class, Parents/dancers will need to queue in the car park at a safe distance and wait for their child to be welcomed in by a teacher

  3. Children should arrive dressed and ready for class where possible so that they can simply remove outer clothing, change their shoes and start their class. For those younger children who are not able to put on shoes by themselves, please have them arrive in the correct footwear so that no shoe change is required. Teachers will help with mid-class shoe changes as usual.

  4. No parents/guardians will be permitted to wait in the foyer unless pre-arranged and absolutely necessary.

  5. At the end of class, children will be lined up and brought the main entrance. Parents should wait outside at a safe distance and come forward when they see their child to collect them.

  6. To avoid the gathering of parents in the entrance, if you have any questions, please email them to me where possible.

  7. Parents/guardians should wear a mask whilst dropping off and collecting if possible.
