Thank you for taking the time to read and familiarise yourself with our new procedures. Our studio guidelines have been informed by the Victorian Government, Department of Health, Safework Australia and the recently released Ausdance Australia document – Return to dance: Principles and framework for restarting dance activities post-Covid-19. The health and safety of our studio community is our highest priority. We believe that movement plays a huge role in our health and wellbeing and with sensible precautions in place, adhering to government advice, we can safely return to dance and yoga classes.
In line with Government recommendations, we ask that all persons attending the studio meet the following criteria:
We will be keeping accurate class records of who attends each class. This is no different to our normal procedures.
To maintain adequate air flow, both the door and window will remain open at all times as well as fans on to help maintain a continuous air flow. We encourage our students to bring an extra layer, do a thorough warm up and keep moving.
HYGIENE AND EQUIPMENT
The studio will be strictly cleaned on a regular basis, with hospital grade disinfectant used on high traffic areas. Our staff will wipe down common areas and equipment – barres, door handles, stair bannister, music equipment. This will ensure a hygienic space in between classes.
ARRIVALS/DEPARTURES and use of FACILITES
Class sizes are limited to 16 to ensure our Covid Safe obligations, as per the studio space/person ratios.
In the event of future government restrictions where we are required to close the studio, all enrolments will be transferred to online zoom lessons OR suspended until we can safely re-open. This will be at the discretion of the studio. Any term fees paid will not be refunded, however all classes will be honored – either in person or online.
All students and staff agree to these policies and procedures and assist us to keep The Loft a healthy and safe working environment.
