Our Studio Covid 19 Policies and guidelines

We understand that the safety and health of our students is our highest priority in this era of a pandemic. To ensure we can deliver the best service and be safe, we have implemented a Covid 19 safety guideline. Here are the guidelines:

  • – Please do not come to the studio if you have symptoms of Covid 19 and have come in contact with people that has tested positive for Covid 19

  • – 1 way path Enter and Exit.

    • + We have opened up the back exit of the studio which leads to the back parking lot/park. Our staff will help guide you to our exit, and directional arrows are posted.

  • – No walk ins are permitted. All classes must be preregistered in advance.

  • – No changing rooms in the bathroom.

    • + Come dressed ready to dance. Please limit bringing any personal belongings that are unrelated to taking classes.

    • + Limit 1  person in each washroom. We have 4 bathrooms 2 in the rear hallway and 2 in the front hallway

  • – Limited Class Capacities.

  • According to Ontario Regulations (https://www.ontario.ca/laws/regulation/200364)

    • In-person teaching and instruction

      5. (1) Subject to subsection (2), the person responsible for a business or place that is open and that provides in-person teaching or instruction shall ensure that every instructional space complies with the following conditions:

      1. The instructional space must be operated to enable students to maintain a physical distance of at least two metres from every other person in the instructional space, except where necessary for teaching and instruction that cannot be effectively provided if physical distancing is maintained.

      2. The total number of students permitted to be in each instructional space at any one time must be limited to the number that can maintain a physical distance of at least two metres from every other person in the business or place, and in any event cannot exceed,

      i. 50 persons, if the instructional space is indoors, or

      ii. 100 persons, if the instructional space is outdoors.

    • + This allows us a 50 people limit on indoor gatherings. Currently, all classes are limited to 13 spots with a waitlist.

    • + We are only using 3-4 out of 7 studios in each time slot.  We will be rotating between the front studios and rear studios in each time slot. This gives us time to clean and properly ventilate our studios for an hour after use.

  • – Social distancing is mandatory

    • + Please stay 6 ft away from each other. We have created social distancing bubbles by placing marking spots on the floor. Please keep within your bubble.

  • – Please limit your stay in our facility after classes.

    • + We understand that our facility is very conducive to socializing. Please exit the facility once your classes are done. This allows us to be safe and make sure that we are following city capacity limit rules.

  • – Cleaning

    • + Studios will be thoroughly cleaned at the end of every night.

    • + All highly touched surfaces will be cleaned after every class.

  • – Mask requirements

    • + According to this City Bylaw (https://www.toronto.ca/home/covid-19/covid-19-what-you-should-do/covid-19-orders-directives-by-laws/mandatory-mask-or-face-covering-bylaw/)

      • Masks are mandatory in all indoor public spaces. There is an exception when it comes to physical activity ” **Except when engaging in a fitness activity (e.g. swimming) that would make wearing a mask difficult or hazardous. ” 

      • This would be our recommendation:

      • # In hallways it is mandatory to wear a mask.

      • # In studio, you may take off your masks if it is hard for you to breath only within your bubble. We do believe that in order for us to beat this virus, masks are VERY VERY IMPORTANT. However, we understand that physical activities can make breathing hard. We ask that you take responsibility for yourself and for others around you.

  • – Hand sanitizing stations are available throughout the studio

  • – Designated social distancing spots are marked in each studio

  • – Waitlists are available if classes are sold out/full. If you are on waitlist, please wait for our confirmation to attend class.

  • – Class times have been staggered to allow a 15 minute gap for transition. (6:00pm-7:00pm, 7:15pm-8:15pm, 8:30pm-9:30pm)
