Dynamic Movements’
COVID-19 SAFETY PROCEDURES
For nearly two decades Dynamic Movements has been providing excellent professional dance education in a warm, caring, and safe environment for our families and community. We are dedicated to continuing to provide this service while keeping our dancers and their families safe and healthy.
Following guidelines from the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we have outlined expectations and procedures to follow that will help to keep our DM family safe.  Please read them carefully.

Pre-Arrival Procedures
Families should perform a health check before coming to the studio.

Staff Health
Our staff’s health is screened daily. They are held to the same standards as described above for dancers.  We do not allow staff in the building if they are ill. Staff members who are fully vaccinated are not required to wear masks in the building.
YOUR TIME AT THE STUDIO:
KEEPING DANCERS SAFE 
Upon Arrival
Know your class studio #  

Front entrance doors have been marked for each studio.  Dancers, please wear a mask, maintain proper social distance, and wait outside your studio entry door until the previous class has exited and your instructor invites you in. Once in the classroom, the dancers will not be required to keep their masks on while exercising. In order to provide proper social distance measures, we are allowing one parent per dancer into the lobby during your dancers class time. We ask that if you are not fully vaccinated that you continue to wear your mask in the lobby area. We ask that at the end of class, parents meet their dancer at the outdoor studio entrance where drop off was held, we will not dismiss dancers into the lobby area.

In the studio
  • Water.  We have restricted the use of our water fountains to refilling reusable bottles only.  Students may not drink directly from the fountains at this time.  Dancers are permitted to bring water in a container with a lid into the studio with them.  Juice, soda, or sports drinks are not permitted in our studios.  These options may only be consumed in our lobbies or eating areas.  Please refrain from sending your child with anything other than water unless they have a snack or lunch break.
  • Creative Movement Props. Our youngest dancers use scarves, beanbags, and musical instruments during their class.  To help protect them from COVID-19, we are requiring Creative Movement dancers to purchase a personal prop bag for $10. They will bring their bags to each class and use their own materials instead of sharing.
