Q: I have concerns about COVID-19. What precautions are you taking?
A: We, the faculty and staff at TCBT, take your child's health and wellbeing very seriously and are taking the following measures to keep them safe while they are in our facility:
Cleaning and disinfecting after each class.
Using spaced out place markers for the barres and flooring. (There are times we cannot keep them 6 feet apart.)
Requiring students to use hand sanitizer before class.
Implementing a car rider line to drop off and pick up, safely allowing students to walk in.
Asking parents and siblings to remain outside the studio. (If it is necessary to come in, we ask that you wear a mask if it is not possible to remain socially distant.)
Instructors will wear masks when correcting and coming in close contact with the dancers.
Dancers will not be required to wear masks, but will be asked to maintain physical space.
Dancers are welcome to wear a mask if they prefer.
Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
