Safety Protocol

 

All dancers must wait outside the building (when weather appropriate) to have their temperature taken and be let into the studio. While waiting, students must wear a mask and stand 6 feet apart. Parents are also not allowed to congregate inside the building during or between classes (if a parent of a toddler or preschooler feels it is necessary to be in the building for their child’s class, one parent will be permitted inside – no siblings). We realize this is inconvenient, however it is necessary during this time of Covid. Thank you for understanding.

 

Required Items for Class Safety: The following items must be kept in a bag, with the dancer in the dance room – mask (wear while waiting to enter studio), water bottle (labelled with name – no drinking fountain available), and hand sanitizer.

 

Dropped Classes and Refunds

 

If you intend to drop a class or quit, you must send WRITTEN NOTIFICATION to Jan. If you do not send a notice, you will be billed for classes until this notification is received. Calling, leaving a message, or not attending class is not sufficient.

 

NO REFUNDS ARE GIVEN AFTER THE FIRST CLASS. IF A CLASS IS MISSED, IT CAN BE MADE UP BY ATTENDING A SIMILAR CLASS, BUT NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR A LATER CLASS WILL BE GIVEN.

 

Communication

 

We communicate all registration forms, newsletters, and handouts via email. Please add jansschoolofdancemn@gmail.com to your safe senders list and check your spam folder for messages. If you are not receiving emails, contact the studio. It is your responsibility to keep up on extra practices and information.
