Safety for Everyone is Dance 411’s Primary Concern

Please note that many actions, efforts and decisions have to be made on a timely basis to put on any Dance 411 show on this scale, with or without a coronavirus pandemic disrupting the world.  Therefore, please understand that due to the sensitive nature of having an event like this at this time… we require many extra detailed and clear processes put into place to ensure what we feel is a safe and quality show.  

We are providing you this information to keep you aware of our current processes and expectations surrounding this event.  We encourage you to come back to this page frequently for any changes or updates.  Please understand that given the ever-changing information we see in the media… things can change at any time in our area that may affect any Dance 411 event that may be out of our control.  We will do our very best to update this page (if needed) and keep you informed.

 

Dance 411’s Enhanced Safety Efforts

Dance 411’s approach to providing any class or event at this time is to ensure that our best efforts conduct operations are well-planned and carried out in a way that helps to “flatten the curve”.  We want to ensure a safe and comfortable environment that reduces the chances of spreading any illness from person-to-person, is safe for all ages, and that keeps on schedule to allow everyone to return to their homes safely and in a timely manner.  As you may already know, our staff has already implemented extra cleanings and sanitary measures to ensure a safe space at Dance 411.  We also intend to do so at any off-site event location.

We strongly encourage that you and your family to adapt these same principles outlined below that we expect from our staff.  We are all in this together and expect our event attendees to help contribute to our safety measures and support a safe environment.

 

Expectations For All Dance 411 Staff and Assistants:

 

  1. Wear gloves, if possible at all times.  Please bring your own if possible, in the event we run out due to scarcity
  2. Wash your hands upon arrival and throughout your shift often.  Use soap and water and rub hands vigorously for at least 20 seconds and rinsing hands under running water into the drain.   Please dry your hands thoroughly. Wipe off/clean any residual water that may have gotten on surfaces around the sink. Put gloves back on once hands are dry.
  3. Understand that the use of hand sanitizer only is not proven to stop the spread of virus, and is not as effective as washing the virus from your hands under running water into the drain.  Please don’t let the use of hand sanitizer give you a false sense of security during this time.
  4. Use approved disinfectant spray according to its posted instructions to sanitize the following on a regular basis:  restroom fixtures and surfaces, all common area and studio door handles, surfaces, tables, counter tops, trash can lids, performance props, equipment, heavily handled areas.
  5. Sanitation efforts should be regularly conducted during all operational hours, and more frequently during any classes or events:  before, during, while the event is on break or intermission, and immediately after.
  6. Help minimize excessive staff and patron hand or body contact with surfaces or other people by: 
    • Leaving external and internal entry or exit doors open whenever possible
    • Keeping trash cans empty with clean and functioning lids
    • Encourage people to register for events using their own mobile devices
    • If payment is being collected in-person, have patron swipe their own cards on our equipment affixed to the front desk, or on our mobile device held by staff only, wearing gloves
    • Keeping all doors and walkways unblocked.
    • Keep equipment, props, brooms, mops, and other items out of areas of view and in their designated storage areas.  Always use gloves while handling these items.
    • Refraining from any physical contact whenever possible with others in public at all times, including handshakes, high-fives, fist bumps, daps, pounds, kisses, hugs, etc.  
    • Encouraging the use of a few surprisingly effective alternatives for pressing buttons, opening doors, and the occasional moving of certain obstructions… the elbow, knee, hip or foot.  
    • Avoiding the handling of others mobile devices, keys, credit cards, clothing, water bottles, food containers and waste.  Use gloves if the handling cannot be avoided.
    • Not spreading your own germs if you must sneeze, cough, blow your nose, etc.  Cover your mouth or nose with your elbow, clothing or a tissue. Warn the unexpected to the best of your abilities to take cover.   Clean or dispose of the aftermath.  
    • Using common sense to help reduce transmission of illness.  Seriously.

 

Parent, Performer and Show Attendee Expectations & Seating

 

Wash your hands often.  Use soap and water and rub hands vigorously for at least 20 seconds and rinsing hands under running water into the drain.   Please dry your hands thoroughly. Wipe off/clean any residual water that may have gotten on surfaces around the sink. 

 

Understand that the use of hand sanitizer only is not proven to stop the spread of virus, and is not as effective as washing the virus from your hands under running water into the drain.  Please don’t let the use of hand sanitizer give you a false sense of security during this time.

 

Please do not attend the event if you feel ill or have been in contact with anyone else who may feel ill.  Ensure the same freedom from illness in your children.   If you suspect your child performer (or you are the youth performer) are possibly sick…. do not enter the building.   Contact Candace Inman immediately @ company@dance411.com and your team mom.

 

If you or your child performer feels ill suddenly while at the event, please leave immediately and calmly.  Please try not to cause a disturbance, and contact the staff once in a stable place to discuss the circumstances.

 

All parents are responsible for bringing necessary sanitary items for their own children, like tissues, gloves, etc.

    • Refraining from any physical contact whenever possible with others in public at all times, including handshakes, high-fives, fist bumps, daps, pounds, kisses, hugs, etc.  
    • Understanding that if someone does not reach out to shake your hand, or side-steps you if you attempt to go in for a hug… don’t take it personally.  It’s the times, people!
    • Encouraging the use of a few surprisingly effective alternatives for pressing buttons, opening doors, and the occasional moving of certain obstructions… the elbow, knee, hip or possibly the foot.
    • Avoiding the shared handling of any other people’s items:  mobile devices, keys, credit cards, clothing, water bottles, food containers, clothing, etc
    • Not spreading your own germs around:  if you must sneeze, cough, blow your nose, etc.  Cover your mouth or nose with your elbow, clothing or a tissue.  Warn the unexpected to the best of your abilities to take cover.   Clean or dispose of the aftermath.

    • Wearing gloves as much as possible
    • Using as much common sense as possible to help reduce transmission of illness

We request that everyone adheres to the following expectations of all attendees:

 

      • Entry into the auditorium will be on a first come, first serve basis
      • Staff is instructed to let everyone in systematically to ensure proper spacing
      • If you want to sit with your group, all people must be together in line (in the lobby) before being admitted as a group
      • Keep small groups to less than four in the same row, however smaller groups than four are preferred and better for social distancing
      • Preferred seat distancing (6-foot space between individuals or small groups)

 

Same Row Seating: Attempt a minimum of two (2) to  three (3) empty seat spaces between each individual or small group seated in the same row.

  • No entry of anyone who has not pre-registered for a ticket online.
  • Please spread out and use the entire auditorium.  
  • We are willfully underselling the available seating to try and accommodate the above style of seating.  The auditorium will look much emptier than normal.
