Do before you go:
  • Review Screening Tool every time you are coming to the Studio- if you answer Yes to any of the questions, do not come.
    • It is important this Screening Tool is taken most seriously and honestly.
  • Take dancer's temperature before leaving home. Temperature of 100.4 F is considered a fever - stay home.
  • Bring dancer to the bathroom at home before camp.  We want to limit bathroom usage and crossing paths as much as possible.  The bathroom is available for emergencies, but if we can avoid the "potty parade" we would like to try :)
  • Make sure your online account contact information is up to date in case we need to reach you. Anyone doing drop off/pickup should be in your account.
