COVID-19 Updated Procedures

First we need to define KnownExposure= You have been knowingly within 6ft of someone who tests positive, for 15 min or more.  If you have had “Known Exposure” in any environment as defined above please follow the Scenario below that best fits your situation before returning to Soleunique Dance Complex.  

Scenario #1- Known Exposure + Negative Test Result = (test taken at least 72 hours after known exposure)  Contact your healthcare provider first. Dancer(s) may return to the studio if they received a COVID test after the 72 hour window from date of known exposure, the test result comes back negative and you complete a 14-day, symptom free quarantine. The date of known exposure is Day Zero of your 14 day quarantine.  

Scenario #2 – Known Exposure + No Test taken = Contact your healthcare provider first. If not taking a COVID test, dancer(s) may return to the studio after you complete a 14-day, symptom free quarantine. Date of known exposure is Day Zero out of your 14 day quarantine.  

Scenario #3 – Known Exposure + Positive Test Result = (test taken at least 72 hours after known exposure)

Contact your healthcare provider first. Dancer(s) may return to the studio once a negative COVID test result is achieved and you complete a 14-day, symptom free quarantine starting from the day you receive the negative test result. Dancer must provide the studio with a copy of the negative test result at time of their return.  

*** As always, continued participation for your dancer’s class is available virtually via ZOOM. Links can be located in your personal parent portal.     

New Mask Rules for Studio

Now that we are several weeks into our first term, we have made an alteration to our mask-wearing parameters.  

  • Once inside the classroom and situated inside a social distancing square,
    dancers may remove their masks if they wish and if the teacher has not asked them to keep them on. (This may not apply to the “high capacity” classes *see below*)
  • NEW high capacity classes (mask rule)
    Our main studio in Aurora has three studio spaces. Studio one can hold a total of 15 dancers, Studio two 10 dancers and Studio three 8 dancers while we are adhering to Covid protocol. Once a class reaches a certain number of students, deeming it a “high capacity” class, students and teachers will have new mask rules to follow. Please see below. (Wheaton Sport Center families will be notified separately if a class reaches high capacity.)

Aurora High Capacity Numbers per Studio:
Studio 1 / 9 dancers
Studio 2 / 5 dancers
Studio 3 / 4 dancers

1)  Masks may be removed for warm up if dancers can safely stay within their
designated square. Dancers are to await instructions from their teacher. 

2)  Masks must be worn for across the floor. 

3)  Masks must be worn for all center movement, technical work and at the
barre. 

Previous mask rules still apply. Everyone entering the building must wear a mask at all times in the common areas. 

Please remember to wash hands once you enter the studio and then proceed to our front desk for a temperature check. Anyone with 100.4º fever or above will be sent home. 

We want to thank you all for your patience and understanding as we continue to adapt to better ourselves for the safety of our families and staff.
