• Social distancing recommendations in general become significantly greater when dancers and athletes are exercising indoors.
• All dancers and staff need to behave as if they are an asymptomatic carrier of COVID-19 to help reduce risk that asymptomatic individuals are infecting an enclosed environment.

We have cleaning supplies, hand sanitizer and antibacterial soap to make sure we maintain a safe working environment with cleanings multiple times/day to adhere with safety guidelines.
