COVID-19

Dance Discovery is committed to the health and safety of all students, parents and staff. We remain diligent in minimizing risk and implementing all the recommended protocols given by Alberta Health Services while still offering the exceptional programming you are accustomed to. Providing a platform where we can continue to cater to the physical and emotional health and development of our students, is paramount. At this time, Dance Discovery will maintain the following safety precautions as we begin the new dance season. Should we see that the lifted restrictions that are currently in place by the Alberta Government remain consistent into the fall months, we will look to adjust accordingly!

OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU

REDUCED CLASS SIZES – same great curriculum!

STRATEGIC SCHEDULING – staggered start/end time of classes running within the facility to alleviate congestion in common areas.

SCHEDULING BREAKS – a 15-minute studio break between select classes in order to provide assistance for the entry and exit of our younger students who require a little extra care and attention.

CLOSED LOBBY – our lobby will be closed for all patrons (with the exception of one parent who has a dancer in our Baby Ballet and Tiny Tot Program). Lobby will remain closed as we will be utilizing our large lobby space to safely transition classes.

FLOOR MARKINGS – all areas of the facility are marked for distancing safety. Arrows are also located in select areas to direct traffic to flow in a way to avoid congestion. As the province is in the stage of rebuilding back to “normalcy”, we will continue to practice distancing safety in all of our classes to the best of our ability.

ENTRANCE AND EXIT POINTS – we are fortunate to have a total of 5 entrances and exits to utilize to help mitigate congestion when necessary

ADVANCED CLEANING TECHNOLOGY – we have upgraded our cleaning practices to include the use of the UltraMist Fogging System; the gold standard in Electro Chemically Activated (ECA) sanitizers. This technology is FDA and Health Canada approved and EPA certified. This advanced cleaning technology is 100x more effective than bleach, 100% organic and eco-friendly. This system is used to disinfect the classroom, in full, in under 5 minutes.

FACE COVERINGS – required in the common areas of the facility but remain optional for all dancers once inside the classroom and participating in physical activity.

MANDATORY HAND HYGIENE – all patrons entering must sanitize their hands; sanitizer is provided.

DROP OFF/PICK UP PROCEDURES – designed to mitigate congestion in our common areas. Protocols are unique to each program and this information will be outlined in your information package which is sent via email in August 2021.

WATCH WEEK PROCEDURES – details are outlined in your information package which is sent via email in August 2021.

We thank you for working with us as we put forth our best efforts to ensure a safe return to the dance studio. 

We appreciate your continued patience and understanding as we will continue to make careful and thoughtful decisions and implement any necessary changes to our safety protocols as we work to rebuild back to “normalcy”.

Working together, we can maintain a quality dance experience that is safe for everyone.
