Inside the Studio
Everyone must wear a double layer face mask which covers both nose and mouth for the entire time they are in the building.
The lobby / studio will be limited to students, faculty, and staff.
All parents / guardians, siblings, and family members must wait outside the studio.
Everyone entering the lobby / studio must use hand sanitizer.
Classes / Classrooms
Due to social dis-DANCING, individual class sizes will be smaller and available only on a first come, first served basis. We have staggered class times to avoid congestion in the lobby, restrooms, and hallways.
Classes will be shortened for dismissals and cleaning:
45-minute classes will now be 40 minutes;
60-minute classes will now be 50 minutes, until further notice.
Classrooms have been marked off into 6 foot social dis-DANCING areas.
If possible, students should use the restroom at home before coming to the studio.
The restroom will be limited to students, faculty, and staff.
All frequently touched surfaces will be cleaned after every class.
Students will be allowed to enter through the front lobby 5 minutes before their scheduled class time. Students arriving more than 5 minutes late may not be allowed in, since that might overlap with the intake of the next class.
Students will immediately use hand sanitizer and be assigned a spot to change into their dance shoes and then be lined up by class. They will leave their belongings at that designated lobby spot and only take dance shoes into the classroom.
Students will be escorted to their classroom. Younger students will be assigned a spot in the classroom by color/shape that will correspond to their chair, their floor space, their tumbling mat, etc.
Students will be dismissed from the bottom of the ramp on the north side of the studio to promote one-way traffic flow through the building. We may change this protocol for Preschool children.
Students will be escorted, and dismissed, individually by their class.
Non-driving students will be released to a parent /guardian at the bottom of the ramp at the designated time. Parents must get out of their cars to meet students; we do not want children walking across the parking lot unsupervised. We will provide you with a sign (to keep in your car) for you to show at pick-up so that we can efficiently partner children with parents.
Please be on time (or early) to pick up your student. It is crucial that we not have students waiting for parents because the staff member monitoring dismissal must leave to receive the next class.
Payments and/or fees will not be prorated or refunded.
Classes may be offered on Zoom if circumstances dictate that. Tuition remains the same.
Everyone entering Alderwood Dance Spectrum must agree with, and follow, our COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan which may change at any time. If you have any questions, please call us at 425-771-2994 or email at AlderwoodDanceSpectrum@msn.com
