Dancing Safely with Legacy

The following is a detailed list of how Legacy School of Dance plans to follow along with regulations set by the State of Virginia and the CDC.

Please note that this is an ever changing situation and this page will be updated as regulations change.

If you have any questions or concerns with this information please e-mail the studio directly or call our office with your concerns.  The well being of our students and their families is our number one priority.

The following list of procedures are in compliance with Virginia regulations for COVID-19.  

Mask Wearing Guidelines:

  • All dancers and family members that enter our space must be wearing a mask.

  • A mask must be worn in all common space areas at all times.

  • According to Virginia standards, the teachers and students may take off their mask while engaging in physical activity (dance).  

Dance Studio Capacity:

  • Limited capacity (class size) in each studio.

  • All family members are encouraged to drop off and return, or wait outside in their cars. 

  • Waiting areas are open with social distancing in place for our youngest dancers (ages 5 and younger).  Parents may walk small children up to class and wait with masks on and in chairs spaced 6 feet apart.

  • Please do not arrive early to eliminate any unnecessary waiting around.

  • Please come dressed and ready.

  • Students who take multiple classes will wait in their classroom for the next class to begin.  If there is a break between classes, dancers have to wear a mask in waiting areas and remain socially distanced.  

  • We encourage all dancers to use the restroom before leaving home, to eliminate use of common areas.  Bathrooms will be cleaned regularly.  

Inside The Dance Rooms:​

  • The dance studio floors have been marked off with tape.   

  • Each student will have a box to stand inside and do all of their dancing.  

  • Dancers may bring their own water bottle with their name clearly printed.  (water fountains will NOT be in use.) 

Cleaning and Sanitizing:

  • All high touch items will be sanitized between classes.  

  • The restroom will be cleaned and sanitized regularly.  

  • To ensure we have sufficient cleaning time, classes may be dismissed 5 minutes early so the rooms can be sanitized before the next class enters.

  • There will be hand sanitizer stations at the entrance of the studio.  

  • Anti-Bacterial hand soap will be available in the restroom.

  • All students must use hand sanitizer before entering the studio.  

  • Dancers and families are also encouraged to bring their own hand sanitizer or hand sanitizing wipes to use as needed.  

  • We encourage you to wash all workout clothes immediately after arriving home.  

Health Screening:

  • All staff members will be screened and have temperatures taken at the start of their shift.  Any staff member found ill or with symptoms will be immediately sent home and the dance studio will be deep cleaned.  

  • Dancers are encouraged to take their temperature and have their health monitored at home, before leaving for the studio.  Per CDC Guidelines if you have a fever of 100.4 or greater, feels warm to the touch, or have a history of feeling feverish, by CDC guidelines, you need to stay home.  

  • If a dancer has any COVID-19 symptoms, including a cough, fever of 100.4 or greater, feels warm to the touch, or gives a history of feeling feverish, has a sore throat, or wheezing that is new and not related to any other health reason, please stay home.  

  • Any dancer or instructor who has been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 needs to stay home.  

  • Students who seem symptomatic will be dismissed immediately.  A family member will be contacted for immediate pick up and the dance studio will be deep cleaned.  

  • Should an instructor or student test positive for COVID-19,  Legacy will follow the CDC guidelines for cleaning and disinfecting and will notify anyone exposed to the virus but will maintain confidentiality of who as required by the ADA.  

Virtual Access:

  • Virtual classes will be available upon requests.
