Although we are so excited to return to the studio, the health of our students and staff is still our primary concern. Zeal Performing Arts Studio will be taking the following precautions to ensure a safe environment for all:
Virtual Lessons - We will continue to offer all of our classes online for families that prefer to learn from the safety of their own homes [Virtual Class Login Information sent directly to families that are opting to take class online]
Limited Class Capacity - A limited number of dancers will be allowed to participate in-studio. At this time, class capacity is limited to 10 dancers per studio. We will increase in-studio class capacity as the situation develops
Social Distancing - Floor markings will be used to ensure that dancers are distanced 6 ft. apart at all times
Mask Policy - Instructors & dancers must wear masks during all class times. Regular outdoor breaks have been scheduled into each lesson plan, and dancers will be allowed to remove their masks during these outdoor water/snack breaks. All outdoor breaks will be supervised by the instructor.
Curbside Drop Off - Our waiting room will remain closed to spectators for the foreseeable future. Parents are kindly asked to remain outside during pick-up/drop-off times. Staff will ensure that students are delivered safely to the parent or guardian at the end of class. We will share lots of photos and videos for you to enjoy as your child grows and progresses this year!
Constant Sanitation - All surfaces (specifically floors, barres, teaching equipment and bathroom surfaces) will be sanitized before, during and after each class. Hand soap & hand sanitizer is regularly restocked in our lobby and bathrooms and students will be required to wash their hands before, during and after each class. For the time being, each class will end 5 minutes early and begin 5 minutes later than its scheduled time to allow our staff to sanitize properly!
Other Special Considerations - If your child is in enrolled in a "combo class" (a class including more than one dance style), shoes will be changed during a scheduled, supervised, outdoor break in our rotunda area (while weather permits).
Again, we cannot wait to welcome you back into the studio and have been working so hard to make this a safe and inviting space. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
