Return to Dance 2022/2023

Please take a moment to watch this video and familiarize yourself with the protocols that have been implemented in accordance with Toronto Public Heath and Dance Safe Ontario.

Welcome Back

  • We have prepared the studio to meet the strict health and safety guidelines put forth by the Toronto Public Health and Dance Safe Ontario. We are pleased to announce that our lobby and our change rooms are now open!

Upon Arrival

  • When you arrive at the studio either by car, bike or on foot line up at your assigned door entrance and wait to be let in. If you are feeling sick, we kindly ask you to stay home and do an online, virtual class with us. Any student showing visible signs of sickness or with a temperature will be sent home. If you’re feeling unwell or you’ve potentially been exposed to covid-19 please refer to the “decision tree” below.

Entering the Building

  • Please remove your shoes at the top of the stairs and place them in a cubby as directed by a member of staff.

Washroom

There are multiple washrooms in both of our locations and they are cleaned frequently.

Option to Zoom

For September we will still be offering a zoom option for classes if you are unable to attend due to illness. The link will be in your “parent portal” or you can access it by calling the studio at 416 767 2842 or emailing abby@swanseaschoolofdance.com

If at any time the studio is forced to close temporarily, the full schedule of classes will immediate shift to online. This way you can still connect to your community, teacher and friends. You can find your classes zoom link in your “parent portal”

If You’re Dancing From Home

Preparing Your Space

Find a space in your home that you can easily clear so that it’s suitable for dance class. If you can safely move furniture out of way, do so.

Consider the surface that you’ll be dancing on, it may be more slippery (wooden floors), more sticky (carpet) than the floors at the dance studio. If you’re dancing on tile, be aware that the floor may be uneven.

Select appropriate footwear once you’ve tested out your dance surface.

Preparing For Class

You are still expected to follow the Swansea School of Dance dress code, as outlined here Dress Code

Don’t forget your water bottle.

During Class

Follow the instructions of your teacher but don’t attempt anything that feels unsafe in your space or in your body.
