DanceBody’s priority has always been and will continue to be the safety, health and happiness of our team + clients.
A note from Founder + CEO, Katia
I could have never imagined the changes that we would need to make as a company to be able to adapt to the world we live in now. On my own, I would have been paralyzed by the overwhelming amount of new information, protocols, and updates. Luckily, I have the pleasure of working with a team that I trust will continue to make DanceBody a safe and joyful space for everyone that enters. As things progress, we are committed to adhering to the latest guidelines and will revise our policies as needed. In order to all do our part, please take a moment to read through our studio safety policies below. We intend to keep an open communication and ask that you reach out with any questions or concerns. Thank you for keeping our community and studios safe!
If you’re not ready to come to the studio, you can Keep Moving with us on DanceBody LIVE!
New Arrival Protocol
- If you have a cough, fever, or COVID-19 symptoms, please protect your community and stay home until you are symptom-free/fever-free for 14 days. If you have tested positive for COVID-19, or have knowingly come into close contact with someone who has, we ask that you do not come to the studio for 14 days or until you’ve tested negative for COVID-19.
- We will be spacing out our Sessions in order to avoid client crossover and accommodate extra cleanings. Please arrive no earlier than 5 minutes before your reservation and we ask that you leave immediately after your session ends. This is for your safety and the safety of our community.
- Please wash your hands with hot water and soap upon arrival. Sanitizer will also be available as needed before and after sessions.
- You will be asked to sign our new waiver as there have been updates due to COVID-19.
