Reopening Studio 22

 

Reopening Timeline

As we anticipate the gradual reopening of our studio, we wanted to share a few of our thoughts and rollout plans with you.

We want to assure you that we are planning to reopen the studio gradually, taking the necessary precautions to preserve our dance community's health and safety.  We've incorporated the protocols recommended by the CDC & the state of Texas.

 

Phase 1 (May 18):

During the remainder of May, we will fully transition back to streaming online classes from the studio, and will allow limited private lessons and wedding lessons on a reservation basis only. 

 

Phase 2 (June 1):

We will begin allowing limited attendance for in-studio group classes, with livestream classes available online for students who prefer to learn from home.  Private lessons, wedding lessons, and student practice will be available on a limited reservation basis.  Click the button below for details on in-studio health & safety protocol.


What's New, What to Expect:

Not only have we gone through renovations to update our studio with new touchless features, we will strongly be adhering to distancing practices, implementing protocols to enter the studio, limiting the number of people in our facility, as well continuing rigorous cleaning and sanitation. 

We look forward to seeing you on the dance floor, and want to send our heartfelt thanks for your continued support as we navigate through this unusual time together.


New Safety Features At Studio 22

Touchless bathroom features
Our beautiful new bathrooms have been completely renovated and equipped with hands-free door openers, touchless faucets, touchless soap dispensers, and touchless paper towel dispensers.

Air filtration system with medical-grade PECO technology
The PECO technology and filtration system has been designed to capture and destroy airborne viruses and meets the rigorous performance criteria outlined in FDA guidelines for use in helping destroy the COVID-19 virus. Four of these devices have been added to the studio for air purification.

HEPA medical-grade air filtration system
Why stop at one air filtration system when we can provide two? These units will scrub the air every 15 minutes. The high-efficiency air filters remove 99.97% of particles down to the 0.1 micron, including bacteria and virus carriers. Five of these units have been added to the studio to help clean the air.

Anti-microbial door openers
We’re adding custom Microshield arm pulls to all interior doors in the studio, including ballrooms & bathrooms. These handles can be opened with your forearm and have an anti-microbial coating to inhibit the spread of germs and bacteria.

Hand sanitizing stations
Located at the entrance of the ballrooms for your convenience.

6-foot distancing floor markers
As a way to help maintain a safe distance awareness, we have floor markers placed around the studio.

Touch points minimized
To help prevent virus spread, we have removed all tables and chairs from the studio.

Health declaration
All dancers are required to acknowledge and accept a health declaration before entering the studio.



Safety Protocols & What To Expect


Temperature checks
Before entering the studio, a Team Member will be checking your temperature with a touchless thermometer. If your temperature is 100.0° F or above, you won’t be permitted to enter the studio.

Hand sanitizer
Must be applied before entering the studio.

Face masks
All dancers must have their nose and mouth covered in common areas of the studio, (reception area, walkways and bathrooms). We won’t be providing these, so please bring your own. Face masks during class will be optional so students can decide on their own comfort level.

Touchless check-in & transactions
A Team Member will check all students into class. If you’d like to make in-studio purchases, please make sure you have an updated credit/debit card on your account. (You can update this through your app.) Please note all retail and shoe sales will be final, and we will not be accepting cash payments.

Plastic bags for personal items
Please limit the number of items you bring to the studio to what is necessary (dance shoes, wallet, water, a smaller bag for personal items). Clear plastic bags will be provided for your personal items once you enter the studio.

Designated dance space during class
We have designated individual dance areas slightly larger than 8’ x 8’ space for each student that attends class. There will also be marked walkways on the perimeter of the dance floor to access the restrooms.

No partner rotation
Class material will be tailored to both single dancers and dancers with partners, but during this time there will be no partner rotation, and we will not be pairing up individual dancers. We encourage students to attend class even without a partner, as it’s a great way to meet people whom you may feel comfortable pairing with for future classes.

Self-screening
We ask that you stay home if you are exhibiting any flu-like symptoms, regardless of cause:

•  Cough
•  Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
•  Chills
•  Repeated shaking with chills
•  Muscle pain
•  Headache
•  Sore throat
•  Diarrhea
•  Loss of taste or smell
•  Feeling feverish or a measured temperature of 100.0°F or higher
•  Known close contact with a person who is lab confirmed to have COVID-19

Clean, sanitize, repeat
Our Team Members will be doing frequent wipe-downs of bathrooms, common areas, and various touchpoints.
