Our CoVid-19 Safety Plan
As recommendations and regulations continue to change we will continue update our policies and procedures to keep our families and employees informed and safe.
Cleaning and Sanitizing
All areas are cleaned and disinfected daily. We have switched to stronger cleaning products and high-touch areas will be wiped down after each class. We run an air purification system nightly.
All employees will have their temperature checked and will sanitize their hands upon entering the studio. Employees will wear masks at all times. Starlight Dance Academy reserves the right to substitute a qualified teacher or switch to a virtual learning platform to protect the health and safety of our students and staff.
Dancers should arrive dressed for class. Dancers age 5 and older will be dropped off for class. The sidewalk will be marked with spots 6 feet apart for dancers to wait for class check-in. Dancers in our Little Stars classes should have a parent wait with them. Masks are required while waiting for class and in our lobby and common areas. When it's time for class, a Starlight employee will check temperatures using a touchless thermometer, take attendance and direct students to a hand sanitizing station. Please wait in the parking lot until your child enters the building. By Governor's orders, anyone with a temperature of 100.4 or higher must be sent home. Once inside, dancers will sanitize their hands and be directed where to place their belongings. Dancers should bring their own water bottle. Our water fountains are closed, but our vending machine is stocked with water.
Masks are required by SDA while dancing. Our classroom floors are marked for social distancing and to limit the number of students in each class. Class size is strictly limited to allow for social distancing during warm-up, technical instruction and skills practice.
Classes may end a few minutes early to allow for hand sanitizing and safe dismissal. Dancers will be sent out individually to gather their belongings and exit through our 2nd door (near the playground).
Parents & Siblings
Our lobby is closed to parents except those with a Little Stars student. These young dancers are limited to one parent/caregiver. Siblings and guests are not allowed inside the building. Seats inside the building are limited. Food is not permitted inside the building.
For quickest response, please call with any questions or concerns during class.
