Safe Reopening at LSDM

While our protocols will continue to evolve with public health recommendations, here are the most current ways we have been keeping our students and staff as safe as possible:
 
  • All LSDM staff members are vaccinated against COVID-19
  • Decreased class sizes—our school capacity limit remains capped at a maximum of 50%
  • Staggered start and end times
  • All studios have commercial-grade air purifiers with HEPA filters
  • There are 3 separate, brand new HVAC systems that were installed over the Winter Break within our facility so that not everyone is sharing the same air
  • Physical distancing enforced
  • Mandatory self-screening upon arrival (see links below)
  • Mandatory masks for everyone, regardless of age, while inside our facility. Please send your dancers in N95s if possible, or double up on 3-layer surgical masks, or pair a surgical mask with a cloth mask for the most secure fit
  • Touchless hand sanitizer dispensers
  • Daily commercial cleaning of all spaces
  • Hallways and waiting areas will be closed except for very quick drop-offs and pick-ups
  • Only parents/caregivers of students 3 years and younger are permitted to stay on-site while classes are running. Everyone else must exit the building as soon as their dancer’s class begins
  • No eating or drinking while inside the facility. Quick sips of water while socially distanced in dance classes will be permitted
  • Only those who are vaccinated may enter our facility. Please have your quick entry cards ready to show when arriving at our school. For anyone who does not yet have a quick entry card, simply show proof of vaccination, along with your I.D. the next time you visit and request one from our reception staff

Please read below for our newest policies and procedures effective immediately:

DANCEWEAR ORDERS
Once dancewear orders arrive, they will be given directly to your child to bring home to try on. Anything needed to be exchanged/returned for a different size may be done so by making an appointment with us in advance so that we can have the additional staff required on hand.
