TIM Mask Policy – UPDATE

As of February 21 masks are optional for all dancers & TIM Staff.

Lobby & observation hallway will remain closed at this time.

Thank you for your patience & support!

Hand sanitizer will be available for all staff & students. As always, if you or your dancer are not feeling well, please stay home.

Please continue to check your email and the studios social media for changes and updates.

*NOTE: These policies may be adjusted depending on class size and CDC guidelines. Please understand that this could change due to the future weeks with COVID-19. We will keep you updated via email with any changes as they come. We want to assure you that we have done everything within our power to provide dance instruction as safely as possible. We have trustworthy teachers and staff who prioritize the health and safety of your dancers. Again, please discuss these new policies with your dancer and anyone who may bring or pick up your dancer from the studio.

Bringing dancers into class:
-The parent /guardian will wait with the dancer for the class to begin in the line that is in front of the door in which the dancer will enter for class. For example, if the dancers’ class is in the 3rd dance room, they will stand outside in the line in front of dance room #3.

– The front section of the parking lot and drive through area will be closed off to allow room for social distancing. Please drive safely!

– Young dancers (ages 6 and younger) or dancers requiring additional assistance will need to have ONE parent or guardian wait with them outside until their class time; all other dancers can wait in line with or without a parent or guardian depending on their comfort level. In the event of rain, we will adjust the studio entry protocol.

– Students should arrive already wearing their dance attire but have dance shoes in a personal bag upon arrival. All other dance shoes should be in the student’s dance bag.

– When entering the studio all students will receive hand sanitizer; please notify us of any allergies, handwashing can be offered in place of sanitizer.

– Dancers will be appropriately distanced from each other during class time; with marks on the floor indicating appropriate places to stand.

– Dancers will have no physical contact; any props/mats in the classroom will be disinfected after each use.

– Dancers will be provided a spot to place their dance bags and other belongings along the classroom walls to allow social distancing.

After class:
– Parents please arrive promptly at the pickup zone in the back alley behind the dance school.

– Dancers will be exiting out of the back doors to maintain social distancing and to allow the next class to come into the front door.

– The instructor will escort the students to the pick-up zone, while assistants are preparing the studio for the next class.

– If students have back-to-back classes and are moving to another classroom the dancer will be escorted by a TIM staff member into their next classroom; if the dancer requires help changing shoes, the instructor/assistant will disinfect hands before & after assistance.

If a dancer has a break in
between classes, the parent or guardian will be required to pick the student up and return them for their next class.

– If a student is not picked up on time an employee/assistant will escort them to the lobby area where they will wait with the desk receptionist.

We want to assure you that we have done everything within our power to provide dance instruction as safely as possible. We have trustworthy teachers and staff who prioritize the health and safety of your dancers. Again, please discuss these new policies with your dancer and anyone who may bring or pick up your dancer from the studio.

Monthly Tuition will be the same for dancers continuing to take classes with us virtually & not in the studio.
