Hello and Welcome to Dance!

Impulse staff have been working tirelessly to create a safe space for our dancers during COVID19.  We are continuously monitoring and following Government/Ministry health standards and the Ontario Dance Safe Guidelines. This week, we feel confident in welcoming our dancers to our 11th dance season!

WHAT WE ARE DOING AT IMPULSE!

  • Masks are mandatory for EVERYONE while entering/exiting the building/studio and while inside all common areas (lobby, halls, bathrooms etc).
  • Teachers and Office Staff will be masked.
  • COVID19 Symptom Self-Questionnaire required BEFORE coming to dance class.
  • COVID19 Screening at every entrance.
  • Hand sanitization stations at ALL entrances and exits and inside EVERY dance studio.
  • Separate doors and traffic flow to/from each studio.
  • Increased Impulse staff to enforce COVID protocols, to sanitize high-frequency-touch areas and to help our dancers entering/exiting/sanitizing etc.
  • Marked “dance zones” in every studio to keep dancers 6ft apart while dancing.
  • Significantly reduced class sizes to allow physical distancing.
  • Changerooms and Lobby temporarily closed to reduce small-enclosed-spaces and to limit studio capacity.  Lobby sitting significantly restricted to 1 adult per dancer under age 5 years (pending available space).
  • Frequent sanitization/disinfection between classes. Frequent sanitization “fogging” using professional equipment.
  • Plexi-glass shield enclosing office window.


WHAT TO BRING TO DANCE CLASS:

  1. Every dancer requires a mask to wear while entering and exiting the studio/building.  Once dancers are in their personal “dance zone” in the studio, masks can be removed while dancing.  During classes, teachers can ask dancers to put masks on to allow more movement throughout the class.  Impulse is currently selling masks with our logo for $15 including tax; child and adult sizes!
  2. A bag with all required dance shoes, a water bottle, mask, hand sanitizer, necessary personal belongings etc.  This bag, along with their shoes/jackets etc. will come into the class with the dancer.
  3. Dancers should come dressed in their attire for class.  Please follow the Dress Code at www.impulseperformancearts.com
  4. A smile and a positive attitude! Let’s dance! It has been WAY too long!
