While at Level 2, we will be following a number of procedures to help stop any further spread of COVID-19.
We also continue to clean the studio regularly with the following measures in place:
Barres and door handles are wiped down with disinfectant after each class
Floors are mopped and disinfected
Bathrooms are cleaned daily
We encourage everyone to sign in when they enter the studio using by scanning the QR code at the door using the NZ COVID Tracer app.
For younger students who may not have a cellphone, the class rolls will also provide us with a form of contact tracing. They do not need to be manually signed in using the physical sheet at the door.
We have multiple QR codes placed throughout the building to make it even easier to sign in. These are located on the front door, just inside the front door, as well as at the entrance of each studio.
For parents who may not have a smartphone, a manual contact tracing sheet will be available at the front door.
You can download the NZ COVID Tracer app here.
Drop off and pick up
In an effort to reduce the number of people within the building, and to assist with physical distancing, we ask that parents and caregivers avoid coming into the studio where possible.
We appreciate this may not be possible at times, particularly with our younger dancers. We do expect some parents will need to accompany their child into the studio.
If you do need to come in, please remember to sign in by scanning the QR code or filling out the contact tracing sheet at the front entrance.
There will be limited seats available in reception and in each viewing area.
To reduce the amount of movement around the studio, we will be following a one-way system in and out of the building.
Everyone will enter through the front door, where they will sign in by scanning the QR code on their COVID app or the contact tracing sheet if required.
At the end of class:
Studio 1 will exit the door that leads directly to the driveway
Studio 2 will come back out of the studio and exit the building via the rear door
Studio 3 will exit via the rear door
Parents picking up dancers are encouraged to wait outside the studio exits to collect their children.
Any parents that are in the viewing rooms will also follow the students either through studio 1 or out the rear door.
For dancers that have classes after each other, they will be able to move between studios internally once the previous class has left the building.
Our entry and exit plan is available to view here.
Sanitiser is available at the front door, at the entrance of Studio 1,2 + 3, and at each studio exit.
The hand dryer remains off in the bathroom and we ask that you always use soap when washing your hands. The paper towel dispenser is also checked and topped up regularly.
Each studio has been spaced out and marked to allow for physical distancing while in class. There is also space available to place dance bags, etc.
We will continue to use our portable barres when needed, to allow for physical distancing during barre work.
Everyone else within the building must observe the 1-metre physical distancing requirement.
