OUR COVID-19 Procedures

  1. Dancers and staff must pre-screen every time they attend the studio. The Health Check must be completed before dancers arrive for class. Parents/guardians can fill this out on behalf of a child. Families are responsible for ensuring that the answers have not changed between completing the screening and attending the studio.
  2. Everyone entering Elegance Ballet Studio must agree with, and follow, our “COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan“. Available below or by downloading the pdf. This plan may change at any time – an up to date version will always be posted on this page and at the studio. If you have any questions please email info@eleganceballet.com
  3. The health and safety of our studio and our community is a shared responsibility. Let’s all continue to do our part to keep our community safe and healthy. Thank you for staying vigilant with following all public health guidelines in the studio, at work/school, and in your day-to-day life. Your efforts make a difference to our community and our region.

  • We reserve the right to take temperatures of anyone at the studio using non-contact infrared thermometers.

  • Students must come dressed and ready for class. Students with back-to-back classes in different styles should wear the most appropriate attire for both classes.
  • Students should bring the absolute minimum inside the studio. No overloaded dance bags, school bags, books, etc.
  • Students should bring their own, clearly identified or labeled, water bottle already filled with water.

  • Students with multiple classes, that are not back-to-back, must leave the studio until their next scheduled class time.

Masks / Face Coverings

  • Masks are to be worn by anyone, age 2 and above, while inside the dance studio. Exemptions apply only for those unable to wear a mask (please notify the studio of this in advance) or if staff are working alone in the studio.
    • Students are requested to wear their mask the entire time they are in the studio, including while actively engaged in dancing. If students need to remove their mask during class they will sit in an area that maintains a minimum 2m distance from others until they are ready to resume class with their mask on.
  • Masks may be removed for brief water breaks or snacks as required. Everyone must maintain their minimum distance of 2 metres during these instances.

Studio Access

  • The entrance, bathrooms, and studio will be limited to students, teachers, and any other staff.
  • Drop-off and pick-up only. All parents/guardians, siblings, and family members must wait outside of the studio.
  • Everyone entering the premises must use hand sanitizer or wash their hands upon entering.
  • All lost and found items will be disposed of at the end of each business day.

Drop-off & Dismissal

  • Students will enter through the studio door when they are invited to enter by their dance teacher. Entrance will take place no more than 5 minutes before their scheduled class time.
  • Students will sanitize their hands when they enter and place their shoes and personal belongings before proceeding to one of the marked dance spots.
  • Parents/guardians of younger dancers should approach the glass door or window so that their dancer knows they have arrived for pick-up.
  • Please be mindful of our neighbouring businesses when you park for drop-off and pick-up or if you are waiting in your vehicle during your dancer’s class.


  • In order to maintain physical distancing, individual class sizes will be smaller and will be strictly limited.
    • Current class size maximum is 8 dancers plus a teacher and an assistant. Spots are available on a first come, first served basis.
  • Classes will be conducted with physical distancing in effect. Students must follow all distancing requirements during class as directed by the teacher and/or assistant. Inability to follow these requirements will result in the dancer being removed from class.
    • Each dancer will have their own marked dance space in the centre and at the barre. Teachers and assistants will also have their own distanced spaces.
