COVID-19 Procedures

We have made changes to our policies due to COVID-19.  Please familiarize yourself with the procedures below before coming to class!  These policies are subject to change as NYS and CDC guidelines are updated.  

Classes are offered virtually as well as in-person in a hybrid format to ensure that students who are not feeling well or who need to quarantine can still participate.  Please see details below.

IN PERSON CLASS PROCEDURES:

Arrival

  • Arrive 10 minutes prior to class to complete health screening and contract tracing paperwork.  Please do not arrive earlier than 15 minutes prior to class as we will be cleaning and sanitizing the studio, hallway and bathroom.  

  • Arrive in a mask (please keep your mask on at all times during class and while exiting after class). Per NYS regulations, buffs, gaiters and bandanas are not acceptable face coverings. Your mask must cover both your nose and mouth

  • Please pick up a health screening form, fill it out and place in the folder provided and wait (always use proper distancing in the hall)

  • We will take your temperature with a touchless thermometer.

  • Use the hand sanitizing station provided

  • Step inside the studio and fill out the attendance sheet, sign, and date. Be sure to clearly print all contact info for contact tracing purposes

  • Choose a folding chair, place your belongings there as you wait for other students to arrive and chat from your chair
     

During Class

  • When class starts, you will be asked to move to your mark on the floor that allows for proper distancing

  • When we teach traveling movements, we will direct you to your chairs and one student at a time will take a turn across the floor

  • Should students wish to speak with fellow students they need to remain on their marked area that allows for proper distancing

  • One student at a time may leave the studio to use the restroom

  • For question and answer time as well as chatting after class, let’s sit down on our mark and chat (avoid congregating in the hall to chat before and after class)

  • We will not be using shared props at this time

During this time, in-person make up classes are not available as we are trying to limit the amount of students who come in contact with each other by not mixing classes.  If you need to make up a class, please email or text Faaria with the date that you'd like to make up class and we will send you the Zoom link for that day.  

VIRTUAL OPTION

All of our classes are now offered online on Zoom as well as in-person.  If you feel more comfortable joining us from home, please let us know so that we can send you the Zoom link for your class session.  If you are not feeling well, please stay home!  We will send you the Zoom link for class and we are also allowing virtual make ups if you are not feeling well enough to dance.  The safety of our dance community is important to us.   

To participate virtually under any circumstance, please email Faaria at faaria@oasisdancecenter.com or text her at 716-698-0288 at least two hours prior to your scheduled class or your desired make up class to request the Zoom meeting information.  Thank you!
