Winter Reminders

Winter weather is right around the corner! Please keep the following in mind during the chilly months:
Masks: Masks are HIGHLY recommended at the studio. To help keep everyone safe, we suggest parents & dancers wear a mask in the lobby and in the classroom.
Positive Covid Case: After receiving a positive test, please keep your dancer home for 10 days. Dancers may return to class after the 10 days if symptoms have subsided or they test negative. 
Parking Lot: Depending on the amount of snow, parking spaces may be lost and our parking lot reminders may be covered. Please remember to follow the one-way flow of the lot, drive SLOW, acknowledge the crosswalk area in front of the entrance and do not park/wait for any period of time in the drop-off lane. Our lot will be salted multiple times per day, however, our building does not get any sun and is on a slight slope which collects water – we do our best to de-ice constantly, but please be cautious of potential icey conditions.
Boots/Coats: Dancers should not wear their winter boots or bring their winter jackets into the studio. Please use our dressing room or exit hallway (by bathrooms) locker spaces to store your items or leave them with your parent in the lobby. There will also be boot trays outside of studio doors. Hip-Hop classes: please bring a CLEAN pair of tennis shoes for class each week during winter months!
Snow Days: In an event of severe weather, we may have to cancel classes. We determine when to cancel based on the local school district’s decisions. For example, if Edina or Minnetonka/Wayzata districts cancel school, we would also cancel classes. If the school district holds classes, but has an early release or cancels evening school activities, we would cancel classes. Every day of the week has one snow day calculated into tuition. However, if a Tuesday (or any day of the week) has TWO snow days during the season, a make-up day would be offered to make-up for the second cancellation. An email/text/social media post will go out if we cancel classes.
