School of Missouri Contemporary Ballet Covid-19 Policies

August 2021 UPDATE 

Our first priority is to keep everyone safe while providing a space to learn, grow, and have fun. With that in mind, we have made changes to our policies through December 2021 and updated class policies.  

Following CDC and OHA guidelines we have adjusted our COVID safety protocols:

  • We ask that ALL individuals continue to wear masks in common areas and other shared spaces (ie: lobby, bathroom, hallway etc).
  • All students and staff will continue to wear masks in class.
  • Temperatures will still be taken before entering the studio.

We still ask that our students:

  • Wash hands or use hand sanitizer frequently throughout their time in the studio.
  • Bring a full water bottle. Water is also available for sale for $1.
  • Enter and exit the building and studio masked.
  • Take off their street shoes before entering the studios.
  • Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to check in. Students will NOT be allowed in classes 10 minutes pass the start time. This ensures they are properly warmed up for classes to avoid injury.

The following COVID protocols still apply:

  • If you are symptomatic, please cancel or reschedule your class.
  • If you have a pending test result, please cancel or reschedule your class until you receive a negative test result.

Please note:

  • We will continue to run our air purifiers and indoor ventilation fans.
  • We will continue with our vigorous cleaning practices before and after each class.

When coming to the studio, we encourage our dance families to bring as few people into the building as possible. If you’d like to drop off and pick up your dancer at the door, please give us a call at (573)825-0095 when you arrive; a staff member will escort your dancer to and from their class.

ALL COVID protocols are subject to change, we will continue to follow CDC recommendations.

We appreciate you all for your support, flexibility, and patience this year. We hope you are safe and healthy at this time, and we look forward to dancing with you soon. Know that you are always part of the School of MCB Family and that it is our #1 priority to create a safe and healthy place for all. We ask and thank you for your continued patience as we enter a new stage of COVID-policy refinement.

If you have any questions or concerns contact the school@missouricontemporaryballet.org or via phone at (573)825-0095.

As of 10/20/20, dancers and all staff members will have their temperature checked with a contactless thermometer before they begin class. If the dancer has a fever of 100.4 degrees or higher, the dancer will be sent home to participate virtually.

Dancers ages 10 & up are now required to wear masks at all times within the School of MCB. Individuals under the age of 10, and those unable to wear a mask while dancing for medical reasons, are exempt from this policy. We fully respect any medical reasons and will practice extra awareness/sanitation measures to further protect those individuals. If you forget your mask or do not have one, we do have a limited supply of disposable masks at the front desk.

All teachers, staff members, and volunteers will wear masks at all times.  Each studio is thoroughly sanitized before, between, and after every class, and the floor is taped into 6×6′ or larger squares to ensure proper social distancing. Teachers and dancers are given hand sanitizer before, during, and after classes. Class sizes have also been limited in order to maintain as much space between the dancers and teachers as possible.
