Keeping our students healthy and providing a safe environment to learn are our TOP priorities this dance year.
Here is what you can expect at the studio this year:
- All PDA staff will remain masked inside the facility until the CDC directs otherwise regardless of vaccination status.
- Unvaccinated patrons must wear a mask in the facility at all times, including during classes and in public spaces. Instances of mask use in Tiny Tots (age 2), during heavy cardio, and/or during Acro dance classes will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
- Daily cleaning for the entire establishment. Sanitizing all high touch areas.
- We highly encourage drop-off/pick-up only. Maximum of ONE observer/caregiver of young children may remain in building if necessary.
- Students should arrive for class fully dressed with as few personal items as possible.
- Students should arrive no more than five (5) minutes prior to start of class.
- PDA will use the policies set forth by the Olentangy Local Schools as a resource to determine in-studio policies.
The staff at PDA pledge to exceed your expectations in regards to keeping our facility disinfected and safe for patrons while continuing to run in-studio classes.
