EUAC Covid-19 Info
Beginning on September 1, 2021, 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 2020 Season.
How EUAC is keeping you safe
High quality air filtration units in each studio/lobby.
Disinfecting high touch surfaces
Hand sanitation stations throughout studio
Temperature testing and health self checks for all participants.
What to expect in the studio this Fall 2021
All dancers are required to wear masks while in our studio building. We will encourage mask breaks during classes to allow dancers to step outside to take a respite from the mask. Dancers under 8th grade will be accompanied outdoors be an adult. Dancers are NOT required to take a mask break.
Dancers will be required to maintain 6 feet between other dancers not in their family, this applies to all times within our studio and on mask break.
Dancers are required to wash hands use hand sanitizer upon entering the studio and periodically while in the studio.
Temperature Screening/Health Self-checks
At this time we WILL be requiring health questionnaires to be completed and dancers who have exhibited COVID symptoms or who have come in contact with anyone who has exhibited COVID symptoms in the past 7 days will need to join class online until cleared by a doctor. All dancers will be temperature tested upon entering the studio. Dancers who are exhibiting any sick symptoms will not be allowed to participate in class. Please keep sick dancers home!
What happens if me or my dancer becomes sick with COVID-19?
First things first, take care of yourself! But as soon as you are able, please contact us so that we can determine if other community members may have been exposed. Then, when you are up to it, please join classes virtually until your doctor clears your in-person participation. If you are not well enough to dance, do not fret. Again, take care of yourself and we will do our best to catch you up when you are able to return
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. You will receive a credit/refund for any event that is cancelled and unable to be rescheduled or adapted.
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.
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.
EUAC is amazing! We can't thank you enough for ensuring safe and quality dance education! How can we help?
