WORSHIP MOVEMENT REOPENING GUIDELINES

With the adjusted Phase 2 plan given by our governor, the Worship Movement sought clarity directly from a representative from the NC governor's office for our standing. We were given permission to reopen June 1, 2020. We have done extensive research, sought counsel from our local government as well as medical professionals and feel confident that we are doing everything possible to protect our families and staff while reopening.

Parent Checklist

Encouraged Social Distancing 

  • We have a new procedure to make it possible for clear, one-way walking flows. Please see the new Drop Off/ Pick Up below for more information.

  • Note that we will do our very best to promote healthy distances. Studio floors will be taped with boxes at 6 feet apart. We cannot promise that there will be 6 feet between each student/ teacher at all times. 

    • We have altered all choreography that involved students to touch, lean or lift one another. 

 

Cleaning & Sanitizing 

  • The studio has been professionally deep cleaned and sanitized. We will be using professional grade spray sanitizer in between every class on all surfaces in the studio including light switches and door knobs. 

  • We are not using props for class (scarves, wands, headbands etc). 

    • If a prop is part of the recital piece, it will be labeled with your student’s  name, kept in a separate bag and sanitized before and after use.

  • Please encourage your child to use the restroom before coming to the studio. Students can still use our restroom. We will clean in between each class by wiping down surfaces. We are not using towels to dry hands but paper towels to limit contact.

 

Health & Safety

  • We are requiring you to sign a Liability Waiver before your student can attend any in-person classes or rehearsals. This can be signed on your Parent Portal

  • We are requiring an At Home Health Assessment to be completed prior to each day of class. You will need to complete the google form that will be accessible in your Parent Portal.

  • In the event that we are notified that a student or staff member has contracted COVID19 we will initiate our Worship Movement Response Plan. If you would like more information about our Response Plan please contact us at worshipmvt@gmail.com.

 

Food & Drink

  • We are not using the studio water jug. It is your responsibility to bring a water bottle for your student. We will have a limited amount of plastic water bottles to offer if your dancer forgets. 

    • Please label your student's water bottle 

  • No food is allowed in the building.

  • Dinner options for Stage 3 dancers: We understand that for some of our Stage 3 dancers they will need to eat dinner. We will not permit any eating in the studio or allow the use of the mini fridge or microwave.

    • Option 1: Dancer can eat dinner prior to their dance class.

    • Option 2: Dancer can eat dinner with parent/ guardian in the car in between classes.

    • Option 3: We will have designated socially distanced spots on the front lawn where the dancer can eat your dinner. 

 

Personal Items

  • No toys are allowed 

  • Dance Bags to only carry dance shoes and water bottles (labeled)

    • Dance Bags will be brought into the dance room and kept 6 feet apart

 

DROP OFF/ PICK UP POLICY

One of the ways we are keeping our families safe is through our new Drop-off and Pick-up Policy. We are limiting the amount of people in our building; therefore, we cannot have parents/ guardians or siblings in our building before, during or after your student’s class.

HOW TO PREPARE YOUR STUDENT

  • Please talk with them about keeping their covid conversations at home! We want conversations while in class and at the studio to be light and positive. We ask that any opinions on the virus be kept within family conversations, not studio conversations.

  • Let them know what will be different when they come to dance class!

    • Review the drop-off & pick up procedure with your dancer.

  • Please reiterate “hands to yourself” while at The Worship Movement.

  • Remind them to cover coughs & sneezes and wash hands thoroughly, no kissing mirrors or licking the floor (you’d be surprised at the silly things that happen) etc.

  • The use of masks is optional for dancers. We ask that you do your homework on what is most beneficial for your child. Keep in mind they will be dancing, which increases heart rate and breathing.

 

Parent Checklist

  • Review all new studio policies.

  • Read and sign liability waiver by May 30, 2020.

  • Discuss the new policies as well as the drop off and pick up procedure with your child.
