Covid-19 Guidelines

(updated: 8/24/20)


Hi MindBodyArt Families...


After testing out our safety protocol over the summer, we are happy to say things have been going smoothly! We are excited to welcome our Season 4 students into the studios with a few "new norms" to keep everyone safe and healthy and to get us moving again.


Below are the guidelines we will follow:   

Note: Any updates to these guidelines will be updated on website, camp/intensive BAND pages, and emailed to parents.


Our Facilities...

  • Our 4 industrial grade HVAC systems have been:

    • Cleaned 

    • New filters added

    • Always set to have the fans running to continuously pump in fresh air and keep the rooms well-ventilated

  • We have installed:

    • 9 hand sanitizing stations that are in every hallway and room

    • 6 air purification systems with medical grade filters

  • Rooms will be cleaned and sanitized between each class with the use of a non-toxic disinfectant fogger.

  • Lobby areas & restrooms are closed to the public, including parents & siblings.

    • We will post videos, photos, and updates on your child's classroom BAND page to keep you all involved!​

  • Visitors must call ahead and schedule an appointment.

  • The water fountains are not currently operational.




  • Class start and end times will be staggered  to prevent multiple class crossover in hallways and at check-in/check-out.

  • Check-in/check-out times are the exact start and end times of your class.  

    • Drop off and pick up locations will be publish in your child's Classroom BAND App page.  

      • A BAND App link will be sent to you prior to the first day of your child's class.

  • For the safety of our students and faculty members, we commit to small "in person" class sizes!

    • ages 2.5 - 3:  maximum 6 students to a class

    • ages 4-5:  maximum 8 students to a class 

    • ages 6 and above:  maximum 10 students to a class

  • NOTE:  (we will need a minimum of 5 students per class to run a class for the fall 2020/spring 2021 season)

  • There will be Virtual/ZOOM option available for every in-person dance class.  

    • Our families can make smart decisions as to when it is safe and appropriate for your child to join the in-person classroom!​


Class Check-in & Screening...

  • An adult must escort the student to check-in/screening area at the assigned time.

  • Both the adult and the student must wear a face mask during check-in/screening.

  • Students must also wear their mask when they are walking in public/common area hallways, on breaks, when they are not able to social distance, and when not engaged in physical activity for longer than 5 minutes.

    • IF cases increase in our community, face masks will be required in the classroom at all times.

    • NOTE:  Our instructors wear their masks at all times.

  • At check-in, we will take the temperature of the adult and the student before the student will be permitted to enter the building.

    • If either temperature is 100.4 or higher, the child will not be permitted to join the in-person class that day.  The student will be permitted to join the class through the live ZOOM link from home.

  • If there are any signs of illness with the drop-off adult or student, the student will not be permitted to join the class that day.

    • ​The student will be permitted to join the class through the live ZOOM link from home.

  • At check-in, the adult will be asked several questions related to COVID-19.

    • Please alert us and stay home if you, someone you live with, or someone you have been in close contact with has an active COVID-19 diagnosis, a fever, or any symptoms of COVID-19. Email or call (814) 571-3309.
