MYB COVID-19 Policies and Best Practices

 

  • Due to COVID-19, class sizes are limited. We are currently only accepting NEW students in our Pre-School classes (ages 2-5) and Ballet 1 (ages 9-11 beginners); registration begins August 1st. Students previously affiliated with Mid Atlantic Youth Ballet may register for all classes beginning August 1st. After September 10th, if space remains available, new students may register on an individual basis.

 

  • Students must be dropped off and picked up at the main entrance for classes in Studio 1 and Studio 2 and at the side lobby for classes in Studio 3. Plan to arrive promptly, but no more than 5 minutes before your scheduled class time.

 

 

  • Students and staff may not enter the premises if they have a fever or are feeling unwell.

 

 

  • Anyone who has come in contact with someone who has COVID-19 should not enter the building. Please self-quarantine.

 

 

  • If a student falls ill, make up classes will be offered. In the event of extended illness, a credit for missed classes will be added to your account to use at another time.

 

 

  • Students and staff must wash hands or use hand sanitizer prior to entering the dance studio. Frequent hand washing and the use of hand sanitizer is encouraged.

 

 

  • The lobby, lounge and storage areas will remain closed to parents and family members. Students may use the lobby and lounge to store belongings in cubbies while maintaining social distancing. Please enter the studio space immediately upon arrival and do not congregate or socialize in the lobby.

 

 

  • Students and staff must wear face coverings when entering and exiting the building and when interacting with staff, other students, and volunteers. When dancing, students are required to wear face coverings if able to do so safely. If wearing a face covering is not possible, students should participate in classes via our live-stream in the BAND app.

 

 

  • Students who need to remain home may participate in any of our regularly scheduled classes which will be live-streamed. Please complete the LIVE STREAM class registration form and return to midatlanticyouthballet@yahoo.com.

 

 

  • Class sizes are required to limit enrollment at 50% capacity. MYB will further limit enrollment for all classes in: Studio 1 to 10, Studio 2 to 6 and Studio 3 to 8. Staff and Students will maintain 6 foot distance at the barre and in the center. Floor markings have been placed to provide a visual boundary and reminder of physical distancing.

 

 

  • Teachers will not apply strategies that practice physical contact and will refrain from hands on corrections until further notice.

 

 

  • All high-touch surfaces will be sanitized between classes/each new group of students. Class schedules have been adjusted to accommodate for cleaning. Marley floors will be mopped at the end of each day. All studio spaces and common areas will be sanitized with a hydrogen peroxide mist daily.
