COVID-19 SAFETY PARAMETERS

For the Spring 2022 Season we remain vigilant in our commitment to keep your children safe.

Thankfully, we had an incredible, safe & healthy 2020/21 school year and we continue to be in this for the long haul with your children’s well being as our top priority.

Hand Washing
We are forgoing Hand Sanitizer this school year due to the irritation it was causing many of our students. Therefore, upon entering the studio for class each week, dancers will go for handwashing upon entering the studio.
 

Masks
A properly fitting mask, which covers nose and mouth, is required at all times, for anyone entering our studio including students, Teachers and Office Staff. Traditional “Bandanas” are not an acceptable face covering nor are masks with any kind of valve on it. 

Air Purification
We are very pleased with the attention our building owner, Gencon, has given to upgrading our HVAC system to make it as efficient and purifying as possible for our students and staff. There is no re-circulation of indoor air at any time. All air coming through our HVAC system is now filtered from outside air only with an optimal turnover rate. Additionally, the system is outfitted with optimal filtration with all filters being changed and the entire system serviced regularly by an independent company. Gencon not only has the concern for our students in mind, but also the patients of our neighboring eye doctor, the clients of Indulgence Blowdry Lounge, the patrons of Oishi and the dancers of Fred Astaire. We are very pleased with the attention Gencon has given to ensuring our building stays as safe and clean as possible for all those that enter.

Additionally our studio is implementing the following Products in our daily cleaning practices:

Covid-19 Safety

In Studio Air Purifiers

We have installed  Bio Defender 5 Stage UV Light free standing indoor Air Purifiers  at strategic points in our studio. 
 
Covid-19 Safety

Long Term Disinfectant Seal

  • SURFACEGUARD 90
  • Safe and Nontoxic
  • Hospital grade

This patented product does not wash off with regular cleanings and forms an invisible bond on the treated surface lessening the risk of transmission of viruses and bacteria.

Covid-19 Safety

Cleaning

Bio Defenders BAC– nontoxic, antibacterial spray to be used  throughout the day on all  high traffic touch points such as all  areas of the restroom, door handles, seating areas.

Covid-19 Safety

Cleaning-Before/During/After Every Class

Between every class, our Dance Floor will be sanitized with the Bio Defender Mister and BAC Cleaning Solution- a quick and effective way to insure every class steps onto a sanitized and completely dry dance floor.

Handwashing
All office staff, teachers and students will be required to wash hands or use hand sanitizer prior to the start of every class. 

Pick-Up and Drop-Off 
All Classes are Drop-Off For everyone’s safety, we will not be allowing Parents/Caregivers to enter the studio until Covid-19 is eradicated (please see exception below*). Drop off and Pick Up will be done at our front door. We understand that parents, especially those new to our studio family, will want to be able to see their child’s class in action and we welcome that. Fortunately, our studio has a floor to ceiling glass window and door where you can view everything. We also have a TV Monitor where you can observe more discreetly and out of view of your child. *Parents/Caregivers of children taking our “Gentle Drop Off” Classes will be welcomed into the studio until the “Gentle Drop Off” process is complete.

All Parents/Caregivers, regardless of vaccination status must wear masks while in studio.

Keeping Outside Germs Outside-Shoe Policy
We will have 2 separate areas for shoes upon entering the studio. Your children will remove their outside shoes just inside the front door of our studio and store them in bins during class. This will insure that all outside shoes are contained to one area. Dance shoes will be kept separate, germ-free and stored in our back studio enabling your children a sanitary area to sit on the floor or benches and put on their dance shoes. Our office staff and teachers will follow the same procedures with their own footwear. After class, your child will be required to leave their ballet slippers, tap shoes, Jazz or Hip Hop shoes with us. They will be placed and stored in a bag labelled with their name.

We will not be allowing any outside dance bags, backpacks in the studio. When your children enter the studio, they will enter with nothing in their hands except a water bottle, which will insure that any outside germs will remain outside.

THE GOAL
Peaceful, Safe and Calm
The truth is, without back-to-back, multiple classes running at same time and parents/caregivers streaming through trying to get in & out quickly at Drop-off and Pick-up, we will be able to deliver a much more calm and peaceful experience for everyone. Most importantly, we will be able to ensure that our studio remains A LOT cleaner and reduce the amount of germs coming in. PureJoy! Performing Arts is 100% committed to keeping your children, our office staff, teachers and parents healthy & safe whilst in our midst.

What a truly PureJoy! it will be to experience togetherness again:)
