How we plan to safely open in August:

The safety and health of your child is our number one concern. Which is why we’ll be taking the following measures to ensure all of our dancers remain safe while at our studio.

  • CDE has completed the “Count on Me NC” Business Training
  • Upon arrival: We’ll issue temperature checks with non-contact thermometer and hand sanitizer
  • *Parents will not be allowed in the building
  • Water fountains will be closed – we recommended your child bring a personal water bottle
  • Community props will not be used. (individual prop kits will be available for all tot, tiny and mini classes excluding tumble/acro)
  • During class, dancers will be kept at a safe distance from others
  • All studio and building touch points will be disinfected between each class
  • Restrooms will be disinfected multiple times per day
  • Safety Data Sheets will be posted throughout the studio
  • We will follow the NC recommended use of masks for Junior classes and higher (we are asking our dancers in Junior classes and higher to wear masks during class. We will allow for “mask breaks” if needed)
  • No more than 10 people per room

    *Tot and Tiny classes: 1 parent with a mask may enter the studio to observe class until your dancer is comfortable. After a couple classes, we ask parents to wait in your vehicle or run an errand while the dancer is in class. If a situation arises and we need to contact you, we will reach out immediately via phone call.

Due to the ever changing landscape of COVID, we have several plans in place for an August launch:

Plan A:
Classes will begin in the studio on Monday, August 3rd with all safety protocols in place. Virtual classes will also be available.

Plan B: 
In the event that dance studios cannot open for classes on August 3rd, CDE will delay classes until Monday August 17th and 50% of August tuition would be processed on the 17th.

Plan C:
In the event that dance studios cannot open for classes on August 17th, CDE will delay classes until Monday, August 31st and August tuition will NOT be processed.

Financial Obligation at time of registration:

Membership Fee: $25 per student
Last month’s tuition (May 2021)
Prop Fee: $30 (Tot, Tiny, and Mini Classes)

 2020-2021 Class Tuition Policies:

Monthly tuition is based on the total amount of time each dancer is in class(es) per week. Tuition is the same for in person classes and virtual classes. Tuition is not prorated for absences or studio closures. Total tuition is determined by the total amount of time your dancer receives instruction per week. To determine family tuition, total each individual’s tuition, and take a 10% discount on the lesser individual amount. For example: Child 1 takes 2 hours: $100, Child 2 takes 1hr: $67 minus 10% ($6.70)= $60.30, Total family tuition is $160.30 per month.

*We value our dance community and understand the importance of providing a healthy environment for our families and staff.

Thank you for your trust in DancExplosion as we navigate this together!
