COVID-19 NEWS

How we have prepared for COVID-19

With the safety of our students, staff and guests being our top priority, we are following recommendations provided by the CDC and local health authorities. We have many online services and certainly appreciate your support in purchasing these services and keeping a LOCAL SMALL BUSINESS in operation. The State of Virginia entered Phase III in early July and we are excited to be able to provide studio lessons within the restrictions of these guidelines.

For those students who are in the vulnerable population, or simply do not feel comfortable coming to the studio, we encourage you to take full advantage of our online programs which allow you continue to take lessons right from home.  However, if you wish to come to the studio for lessons we will make special accommodations for your safety.

PHASE 3 OPERATIONS

Here's how the 'new normal; looks at DanceSportVA:

PRIVATE & GROUP LESSONS

As Virginia moved into Phase 3, we made special accommodations for your safety:

  • Private lessons will be limited to  no more than two private lessons in any of the three ballrooms.  With the largest studio in the area, 8,000 square feet, we can insure a greater level of social distancing than other studios. 

  • We will also stagger start times to allow for cleaning and to insure there is no congestion at the front desk. We ask students not to bring visitors, family members, etc. and we ask you to wait until your appointed time to enter the studio so that we can sanitize in between students.

  • Group lessons are conducted with limited in-studio numbers (online classes are conducted simultaneously).  There is no rotating partners- you will be dancing with your same household partner throughout. 

  • We will conduct temperature checks of all staff and students upon entering the studio.  You will also be asked to fill out a short questionnaire. Payment may be made in advance online to avoid congestion at the front desk.

  • Both staff and students are required to wear masks.  If you have a medical reason that would prevent you from doing so we encourage you to take advantage of online lessons instead.

  • Staff and students will be required to wash hands before and after each lesson.

  • In the studio  we have implemented policies, in accordance with Federal, State, and local regulations and guidance, and informed by industry best practices, regarding: Social distancing and protective equipment, temperature checks,  sanitation and disinfection of the studio. 

  • We have also posted informative signs throughout the studio to remind staff and students to follow CDC guidelines.

  • We're minimizing unnecessary touch and personal contact while teaching and dancing.  Want a no-touch in-studio dance lesson? Just ask.

SOCIAL DANCE EVENTS

During phase 3 our socials have the following requirements::

  • Limited to 25 couples or total of 50 persons.  Dancing is limited to couples or same household partners.

  • For the group lesson there is no rotation of partners, 

  • We will conduct temperature checks of all staff and students upon entering the studio.  You will also be asked to fill out a short questionnaire. Payment may be made in advance online to avoid congestion at the front desk.
