COVID-19 Policies and Procedures
2021-22 Dance Season
Updated September 25, 2021
Dear Dance Families,
Welcome to the 2021-22 dance season! We are excited to see you again and also wish a warm welcome to our new families.
To start the season, classes will be in-person and we hope to continue that way for the duration of the season. We will move online should the public health restrictions require, but understand the online and hybrid classes haven’t been quite the same for your dancers the last couple of years and want them to have the best possible experience.
We will continue to have COVID-19 safety strategies in place for the time being, recognizing that our younger dance family is not yet eligible to be vaccinated. The entire faculty and team at Celtic Ceilidh has also been fully vaccinated to help protect your dancers. We will also be participating in the Restrictions Exemption Program and requiring proof of vaccination for all adult dancers/class participants.
The details of our full covid protocols can be found below. A few important points to be aware of:
- Masks are required to be worn by anyone who enters the building (except those under the age of 2).
- Dancers may remove their mask during physical activity while in class but can choose to dance with their masks on if they wish. This will be left to the discretion of each dance family.
- Dancers should arrive ready to dance whenever possible, as dressing rooms are limited to one (1) dancer at a time.
- Dancers will be excused from class 5 minutes early for the time being, to minimize cross-over between classes and allow time for cleaning and disinfection between groups.
- Physical distancing continues to be enforced and class sizes are restricted to ensure ample space for each dancer.
- Dancers may not come to dance if they do not pass Alberta’s COVID-19 Daily Checklist for Children Under 18. Our ‘Fit for Dance’ screening form must be completed before entering the studio each day.
- Dancers/registrants age 18 and over must provide documentation in accordance with the Restrictions Exemption Program before they can attend class in-person.
