Fuzion Dance Studio

"Where Passion Meets Movement"

2020-2021 COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS & POLICIES

The information about COVID-19 is fluid and changes almost daily. To protect our dancers, families, and staff, the following precautions & policies have been put in place until further notice:


1) Face masks are highly recommended for everyone in the Studio over the age of 5. Dancers can wear face masks during class if parents want them to. It can be difficult to breathe in a mask while dancing, which is why they are not required. Fuzion staff will continue to wear face masks, as able.


2) Dancers will be asked to wash their hands and/or use hand sanitizer before & after class. Hand sanitizer will be available in the waiting area & everyone is encouraged to use it upon entering.


3) Disinfectant spray will be available in both restrooms and everyone will be asked to spray surfaces after use.


4) Chairs, doorknobs, restrooms, ballet barres, props, and other commonly touched surfaces will be cleaned & disinfected every night after class & between classes, as able. The floors will be steam mopped after classes each night and deep cleaned with a disinfectant solution weekly.


5) The water fountain will remain out of service until further notice. Dancers should bring their own water bottle to class. Bottles with lids that completely close are preferred to prevent spills.


6) Dancers should put their belongings in the designated cubbies & not on the floor or chairs.


7) There are 12 designated spots on the floor for semi-socially distanced dancing (depends on class size).


8) All classes for the 2020-2021 season will be hybrid classes. In addition to the in studio classes, dancers will have access to virtual class content. We will be utilizing Google Classroom as the platform to offer the virtual content as most people are familiar with it. This means you get more bang for your buck, and in the event the Studio needs to close or cancel classes, dancers won’t have to miss a class. The virtual class content will follow the in studio lesson plans, with some modifications, so if dancers need to miss class for any reason they can do the virtual class for that week. The virtual class content will also help dancers practice more efficiently at home, especially when we start recital choreography. (See the Studio Handbook for more details on the hybrid classes)


9) Anyone that has experienced a fever, persistent cough, shortness of breath, or flu-like symptoms are asked to stay home & do the virtual classes for that week.


10) In Illinois, dance studios are classified as exercise facilities. The Studio will remain open, per the class schedule, unless the county health department notifies us that someone with a positive test has been in contact with the Studio. If that happens, the Studio may need to close for 2 days or up to 2 weeks, depending on the circumstances and type of contact. If we are asked to close then, per the Studio Handbook, dancers will need to do the virtual classes until we can reopen.


Please note that the precautions and policies listed above are subject to change based on any new information that may be released.
