State and Local Protocols will be in effect for the health and safety of our students and teaching artists,
We ask that if a dancer feels unwell or has been exposed to Covid they attend class virtually.
All our classes will be live streamed on Zoom for those in remote locations or those that don’t feel comfortable attending.
Only students will be allowed in the studio with their coach. One guardian wearing a mask may accompany to drop off and pick up outside. No early or late pick up possible.
Temperature checks upon entry to the studios will be done prior to every class.
Dressing rooms will not be open; please arrive for your classes dressed in uniform. Bathrooms will be open to one person at a time.
As always, no food is allowed in the studio. Water bottles must be marked with name.
All dancers and coaches will wear masks.
We will adhere to social distancing. Street shoes will need to be removed upon entry to the studio. Regular dance shoes should be worn.
All our studios will be disinfected prior to class. Industrial disinfection takes place at the end and throughout the day to ensure safety. Doors will be left open to improve air circulation. If weather permits - windows with window guards will be kept open. SSDC has purchased medical grade Hepa filtration systems for each studio.
We will continue to keep you updated with any new developments and will continue to follow the CDC guidelines. When new developments arise we will let you know.
Thank you for your dedication, support, and teamwork!
No refunds or credits will be given should a virtual element need to be utilized. SSDC continues to be an audition only program with limited enrollment. We will continue to honor our promise to train and empower young woman through the love of dance, no matter what, #itswhatwedo
To assure that all families and dancers stay safe as we move past the COVID-19 Pandemic, dance competitions are holding Block competitions. This means our staff, dancers, and one PARENTS per family (no grandparents, siblings, or any other individuals) will be THE ONLY PEOPLE allowed into the building. Meaning each studio competing will be the only studio in the building. Our dancers will perform each of their routines, receive their adjudication award upon walking off stage, and then will be able to leave the building. After each studio leaves the building, the seating area, dressing rooms, stage, and rest rooms will be cleaned and sanitized before the next studio is allowed to enter the building. This will save parents time as now their children will only have to commit to a few hours on one day of the competition weekend rather than an entire weekend, and will eliminate the need for overnight hotel stays. Overall Awards will be done on the last day of the event with no spectators in the audience, but it will be live-streamed so that dancers and their families can watch them safely from the comfort of their home.
Currently, some dance competitions are holding Virtual competitions. These competitions will consist of dancers performing in full costume, and will be live-streamed.
Your support and contributions will enable us to continue to offer scholarships to dancers of limited means. Your generous donation at this difficult time will fund our mission.#shineon
