WELCOME TO BLISS

Our main goal is to make learning and improving to dance exciting! It is important to teach our students how to dance, however, it is just as important to teach them how to feel the bliss in every movement, of every dance style. We love what we do, and we love who we are.

COVID-19: HEALTH POLICY & SANITATION PROCEDURE

FINANICAL:

  • Costume sales are final, as they are purchased through companies that have these policies in place.
  • If we have another state wide shut down, we will switch everyone online training performance/training teams will be charged $35 for unlimited zoom classes, competition will be charged $50.
  • Dance/cheer/tumbling involves a commitment,  for competition teams this is (august-May) and for performance teams and training classes this is  a semester to semester commitment (Sept-Dec).  This is in consideration to the other team members who are in the same routine, instructors who have set their routines accordingly.  Others students have been turned away due to most of our classes being full. so we appreciate you understanding.   We understand the difficulty the may arise with finances due to loss of job regarding Covid-19.  Please reach out to the Director if financial concerns arise.

PARENTS:

  • You may come watch at their own risk, as 6 foot social distancing by viewing windows will not be possible. If you are watching please wear a mask.
  • When picking up dancers please wait in your car in the pick up line, or meet them in the main lobby. Your dancers will be escorted to the main lobby, or to the curb when the weather is nice. If your dancer is in kindergarten or younger you may come into the lobby to pick your dancer up. (Please try to maintain social distancing).  Otherwise student will watch for their rides through the windows. 
  • Please take your dancers’ temperature at home before sending them to class. NO FEVERS, COUGH, RUNNING/STUFFY NOSE, SORE THROAT, ACHES, CHILLS, ETC. ARE ALLOWED. Normally we ask thastudents who are sick with colds still come to class.This season, please keep theme home
  • Students showing any of these symptoms will be sent home immediately. Additionally, if students have had any these symptoms do not send them to class until all symptoms have subsided (or you’ve received a negative cold test). If your child is immune compromised or has other underlying health concerns, please call in to see what options we have for you this season. 
  • We ask you to be honest and do not attend class if you have been exposed to COVID-19 or have any Symptoms.
  • Please call or email with questions to minimize the number of people in the Life Center. 

CLASSROOM:

  • Masks are not required during class, because they are exercising. This includes instructors, as they are exercising as well, and it’s hard t0 hear through masks.  Dancers are welcome to wear a mask if they would like.
  • Markers are set on the floor to help maintain social distancing when possible. This includes where the teachers stand to instruct.  However, due to the nature of dance/cheer/tumbling, there is no promise that your dancer will always be at a six foot distance. Tumbling teachers will be close to students as they spot, peered will be close as they learn certain parts of their routines.  If you have specific requests please feel free to contact your teacher. 
  • Bathroom use will only be used for emergencies.  Have your dancer use the bathroom before coming to dance.
  • We will also be using hand sanitizer, but please have your dancer wash their hands before coming to dance.  
  • Lockers are closed for now, to avoid students from multiple classes bunching up at the same time.
  • Please send dancers with a water bottle. Drinking fountains will not be allowed, except for refills 
  • Please avoid having your dancer come with personal items. Dance bags are allowed, only if needed for those staying extended hours that are in need of multiple dance shoes, a snack etc.  Dance bags will go with each student into the classroom.
  • Thorough cleaning is done every single night, brief wipe downs are performed between classes (i.e wiping off the ballet barre).

CONTRACTING COVID:

  • The whole class will be informed if a peer contracts Covid-19,  and you can choose to stay home or continue in class.
  • If your dancer has to miss due to COVID-19, tuition will be charged in full, and make up classes available.  In some cases, we can hold a zoom class the same time as the live class for that student to attend.  Instructors will send out choreography videos as well.  
  • We will switch to Zoom for that class for 14 days if 3 students in the same class have covid (at the same time)
