EUAC Covid-19 Info

Beginning on September 12, 2022, EUAC will adopt the following expectations to adhere to state/local standards, while also limiting exposure and risk for students, staff, and families. We ask that families review the following reopening plan which details expectations and adjustments to commence at the start of our Fall 2022 Season.

How EUAC is keeping you safe

  • High quality air filtration units in each studio/lobby.

  • Disinfecting high touch surfaces

  • Hand sanitation stations throughout studios

What to expect in the studio this Fall 2022

Mask Policy

EUAC will adopt a mask optional policy.  Masks are strongly suggested for students who are at high-risk or who have families members who are at high-risk.

Vaccination

EUAC STRONGLY encourages vaccination for all staff and students as this is the best way to keep our community safe.  Some events/classes may require vaccination.  Please inquire with EUAC staff if there are concerns about participation.  All EUAC staff must be vaccinated.

Social Distancing​

Dancers will be required to maintain a reasonable distance between other dancers not in their family, this applies to all times within our studio.  

Hand Washing

Dancers are required to wash hands use hand sanitizer upon entering the studio and periodically while in the studio.  

What happens if a dancer shows up to class with a fever or showing signs of illness?

We ask that all students (over 18) and parents (on behalf of students under 18) assess students health before coming to the studio. If you/your dancer is exhibiting any symptoms which would be contagious, please keep your dancer home. This will avoid the unfortunate situation where a dancer shows up to the studio sick. If your dancer starts exhibiting symptoms while at the studio, we will separate them from others until they can be picked up.

What happens to performances, conventions, or other EUAC events if there is a mandatory closure?

That is a great question! This would depend on the specifics of the event. If the event is EUAC-produced, we will work to ensure it can be held safely. When this is not possible, the event will be cancelled. If it is a non-EUAC produced event, we will work with the event organizers to configure a plan of attack. 

 

My child despises virtual learning. What happens if the state mandates closures again?

While we know nothing compares to being in a room sweating it out with your dance fam, EUAC has invested a ton of resources to ensure your virtual learning experience, if it becomes required, is exceptional. With that said,  we know virtual learning is not possible for some ages/dancers.  OUR COVID PROMISE is that we WILL work with you to pause your registration or offer credit if we are mandated for closures and your dancer is not finding enjoyment in virtual learning.  

What if a teacher gets COVID-19? How will they teach class?

This will be handled on a case by case basis but, as we know, many people are asymptomatic and may only need to be quarantined. In this case, the teacher might join virtually, with another teacher in the room to oversee and handle questions/manage dancers. If the teacher is not well enough to dance, their class will most likely have a substitute until they can return safely.


 

EUAC is amazing! We can't thank you enough for ensuring safe and quality dance education! How can we help?

Awww..how sweet. Let me count the ways! =P

 

 

I have more questions. Can I request a call, email, or, perhaps, a tête-à-tête?

Of course. I love a good tête-à-tête! Please email me at ahill@elementsuac.com or contact the studio by phone at 240-339-3822.
