COVID-19 Protocols

This comprehensive list  gives a sense of what we are planning to implement at our studio as you make decisions for your children regarding school and after school programs.  We will continue to assess and follow protocols set out by public health.

 

What follows is a list of some of what we are preparing for:

 

  • Class sizes will be kept small and to a number dictated by social distancing requirements and space.

 

  • Class specific entries and holding areas to allow for proper social distancing and hand sanitizing

 

  • While other studios and dance studios are not requiring this in the classroom,  we will be requiring all students and staff to wear masks at this time.  We will revisit this once we are into the school year and we see what is happening with the numbers.

 

  • Students will be socially distanced in classes with everyone having their own clearly marked spot on the dance floor.

 

  • There will be no group singing indoors. Students will receive guide tracks to assist them with learning group singing at home and solos and duets will be taught safely behind plexiglass at the studio and/or by zoom at home.  We are hopeful that we can return to group singing later in the year.

 

  • Washrooms and common areas will be cleaned and disinfected regularly and there will be hand sanitizing stations for students and staff.

 

  • Any student having travelled outside the country must refrain from coming to class for 14 days upon their return.

 

  • Any student exhibiting symptoms will not be allowed in the studio.

 

We hope that this helps you to feel comfortable that we are making decisions to keep your kids safe. Our own children attend classes at Charactors and the safety of our staff, students  and their families is of the utmost importance to us!
