Welcome to Performance Studios

‚Äč

    At Performance Studios we strive to provide professional instruction and education of techniques and skills in all aspects of dance, drama, and music.  Here at Performance Studios we wish to provide an open arena environment where a student can not only discover a passion and love for the arts, but also develop confidence, self-esteem, and healthy habits that will last a lifetime. Performance Studios is a place where lifelong friendships can develop and grow, and the imagination of your child can run wild while still learning self-discipline and the structure that is necessary to become a successful and well-rounded student of the arts.  

 

    While a student may choose to concentrate on honing their craft in one aspect of the arts, here at Performance Studios we encourage an environment where students may cooperate with all aspects of the performing arts world. We provide opportunities for our students that will embrace and integrate all parts of the performing arts with the opportunity to perform together in cohesive performances.

Coronavirus Updates

Here are the steps we are taking the we reopen our doors this summer and fall

Summer classes will be held outside this year.  Students will need a yoga mat, sneakers, and LARGE bottle of water.  We have yoga mats that can be used for anyone who does not have their own already. They will be sanitized and set aside after each use. No student will share a Matt within the same day. Tappers- we are creating individual tap boards for tap classes.  (Please remember that wearing any dance shoes,  but especially tap shoes, outside on pavement will ruin them!)

 

  1. We ask that anyone not feeling well please stay home.  Common symptoms include but are not limited to fever, cough, sore throat, and shortness of breathe. Teachers and staff will observe this as well .  We will provide subs whenever possible, but we will cancel a class if we cannot find one rather than put your children at risk. 

  2. Limiting class sizes.  At Performance Studios we have always prided our selves in providing smaller class sizes limiting our combo class sizes to 6 or 8, and the majority if the other classes at 10. Combo classes will be limited to either 6 or 8 students to allow for 1 teacher and 1 student teacher.   We will continue to limit our class sizes but our older students classes will be limited to 9 students with 1 teacher bring our room total to 10. No exceptions will be made to this. 

  3. Adjusting class times.  Each class will start 5 minutes late and end 5 minutes early to allow two things to happen.  The space to empty before the next class comes in, and to give staff time to clean and disinfect. 

  4. Limiting the number of people in the building and Parent drop off at the door - while our lobby will be open for you to make payments and take care of any business you need to, we will be removing the seating in our waiting room for the time being that does not allow for proper social distancing. We will continue to have someone sitting at the desk who can help your child if needed.  You are always welcome to call/text the studio as many times as you like to check on your child. However you are welcome to bring some chairs with you and hangout outside while observing social distancing requirements. 

  5. Heightened cleaning protocols before and after each class, as well as extra deep cleaning of the entire studio thru out the week.  

  6. Elimination of cubby/shelf storage system. Students are asked only to bring in what is absolutely necessary with them in a small bag to class. Bags will be kept in the classrooms with them.  Cellphones will need to be turned completely off. Any parent wishing to get to communicate with their child will be able to do so by calling the desk at the studio.

  7. Temperatures will be taken and recorded of all staff and students, as well as anyone who is on the property.  Any one with a temperature over 99 degrees will be asked to head home for the day.  This is a requirement per the guidance set forth by the NJ department of Health.

  8. Washing hands often! Hand sanitizing before and after class, as well as during if necessary.  We will have a sanitizing station in each of our class rooms and anyone is welcome to wash their hands as needed. 

  9. Personal dance spaces marked on the floor to assist our dancers in maintaining social distancing procedures. 

  10. Masks.  According to the NJ Dept of Health everyone will need to wear a mask when coming to class as well as after class.  During their activity the Department of health has stated as long as they stay 6 feet apart they may remove their masks when outdoors during vigorous aerobic activities. Per there recommendation masks should not be worn during any aerobic activities as this will lead to other health problems.  Mask are strongly recommended for children ages 5 and older.  For children in our Combo I, Combo II, and parent  child classes we will allow you to make the decision for what is best for your child.  We don’t want them to touch their face and we understand many of the younger students will not want to keep them on.  If you have a health reason as to why your child cannot wear a mask they do not have to.  Those wearing masks should bring an extra in case their mask gets wet due to sweat. Staff will be wearing masks. 

  11. Acro Mats - each student will be allowed to use one mat during class.  They will be cleaned in-between each use.  We know that some of our dance families have mats at home.  Please fell free to bring your own to the studio to use and take it home with you if it makes you more comfortable.  Siblings who are enrolled in the same class will share a mat.

 

This is a lot. We know. We are so excited to get back to the studio but nervous as well.  Please remember this is as big of a change for us as it is for you and we are doing everything we can to keep our students and their families safe and healthy. We love our Studio Family!
