COVID-19 Studio Protocols


While are beyond thrilled to get back into the studio, dancing our hearts out with your amazing children, we want you to know we will be doing so with caution as the health and safety of our dance family is our number one priority. Below are a number of health and safety procedures that Dynamic Dance Force Inc. have set into place for the upcoming dance season. Please read through them carefully with your dancer so they know how things will run.


  • Temperatures will be taken daily and recorded for all students, staff members and parents/guardians (of students ages 4 and under) as they enter our facilities. Any persons with a temperature of 37.8°C or greater will not be permitted to enter our facilities.
  • Please make sure your dancer (anyone attending class with dancer ages 4 and under) are in good health prior to attending class at Dynamic Dance Force Inc. DDF’s safe screening questionnaire can be found at every entrance/exit of our facilities and copies will be sent via email to all dance families 24 hours prior to each class. We ask that you complete the online form prior to attending all scheduled classes. If submissions are not received prior to your arrival, or you answer YES to any of the questions you will not be permitted to enter our facilities.
  • Screening and temperature records for all dancers, parents/guardians and staff who enter our facilitates will be recorded and kept on file to facilitate contact tracing in the event of a confirmed COVID-19 case or outbreak.
  • Entry into our facilities will be denied to any individual who displays symptoms of, or has come in close contact with anyone displaying symptoms of, or is confirmed to have contracted COVID-19 in the past 14 days.


  • To reduce traffic and ensure proper physical distancing protocols are in place, each studio will have their own entrance/exit to our facilities.
  • BLUE STUDIO CLASSES will enter and exit through the main door located at the front of the building
  • ORANGE STUDIO CLASSES will enter and exit through door #6 at the rear of the building
  • PINK STUDIO CLASSES will enter and exit through door #7 at the rear of the building
  • Access the rear of the building by way of Raglin Rd.  Please drive carefully!
  • Signs will be posted at each of the studio’s rear entrances, and signs & markers have been placed throughout the studio to ensure proper physical distancing protocol.
  • Inside each of our three studios, dancers will have access to their own designated 6 ft x 6 ft pink and orange dance panel carefully marked out on the floor.  Dancers are asked to please keep their masks on and access their panels by walking around (not through) these panels by way of the designated 2 ft walking paths marked out on the studio floor.
  • Class will begin when each dancer has safely found their panel, at which time it will be at each dancer’s discretion whether or not they choose to remove their mask.  Dancers are asked to either sit patiently or stretch in preparation for class, so long as they do so while remaining within their designated panel.
  • Each dancer will be assigned a personal dance panel in their classroom to dance in this season to assist with tracing in the event of a confirmed COVID-19 case or outbreak.
  • To help reduce the risk of transmission within our facilities and ensure for proper physical distancing protocols, all dancers who participate in multiple classes per night will be asked to stay in one studio for the duration of the evening as well as during breaks
  • Class sizes will be limited to ensure the safety of all of our students and staff members.
  • To reduce the risk of transmission staff will make every effort to ensure that physical contact within our facilities is kept to an absolute minimum.  Gentle hands on corrections and/or spotting will be utilized sparingly, and only on a case by case basis when necessary.  Teachers will sanitize their hands both before and after any such contact and will remain in masks while in our facilities.  Please notify the Dynamic Dance Force Inc. office via email if you do not want your child to receive hands on corrections/spotting from our teaching staff.
  • Dancers are asked to come dressed and ready in their dance uniform/attire prior to the start of class, and to limit personal belongings/accessories to those which are absolutely necessary.  Any and all personal belongings must be kept in a small bag, labeled appropriately, and stored in the designated area assigned to each dancer within their classroom.
  • In order to ensure proper physical distancing measures are in place our facilities lobby, office, change rooms and lockers will be closed until further notice, and the front door to our studio will remain locked between classes for the safety of everyone involved.
  • Participants in our Lil Movers (age 2), Glitter Tots (ages 2.5-3) and Twinkle Toes (ages 3.5-4.5) programs will be permitted the accompaniment of one parent/guardian during class.  All those who accompany a dancer will have their temperature checked before entering the class, and will be required to follow our hand sanitization protocol.  Furthermore, we kindly ask that you wear a mask while you are inside of our facilities. We do request that the same parent/guardian accompany each dancer on a weekly basis to minimize the amount of people coming in and out of our facilities.  Contact information for each parent/guardian will be recorded and kept on file to facilitate contact tracing in the event of a confirmed COVID-19 case or outbreak.  Dynamic Dance Force Inc. does recognize that circumstances can change from time to time; however, we do ask that every effort be made to follow this protocol. In the case that someone else will be accompanying your child please notify our office via email at least 24hrs prior to your child’s scheduled class with the contact information of the person attending in your absence.


  • Facilities will be cleaned and disinfected prior to the start of each new day, and cleaning logs will be kept and posted daily.
  • High traffic surfaces such as doorknobs, light switches, dance floors and stereo equipment will be disinfected frequently, as well as in between each class.
  • Restrooms will be cleaned and disinfected after every use. Our teaching staff has been instructed to notify our office staff whenever a child must use the restroom in order to ensure proper physical distancing, eliminate the mixing of students from different classrooms, and ensure proper cleaning of our lavatories is maintained.
  • Only products with a proper drug identification number will be used to clean and disinfect our facilities.
  • Any and all dance equipment (i.e. yoga blocks, therabands, etc.) will be wiped down and disinfected before and after every use.

  • In keeping with the KW Regional Council’s face-covering by-laws dancers may remove their mask/face-covering while dancing as they are engaged in a strenuous physical activity. Once dancers are in their assigned personal dance panel (square) they can remove their mask.  This is of course a  personal choice, dancers are welcome to keep their mask on to dance in, they will not be forced to remove them.  Please have a conversation as a family about what you feel is best.
  • All parents/guardians accompanying a participant of our Lil Movers (age 2), Glitter Tots (ages 2.5-3) or Twinkle Toes (ages 3.5-4.5) programs must wear a mask/face-covering while in our facilities to observe.


  • If a dancer begins to experience symptoms of COVID-19 while in our facilities that dancer will be separated from their classmates immediately and supervised within our office while we contact a parent/guardian for immediate for pick-up.
  • Staff will contact the Kitchener Waterloo Public Health department to notify of the potential case, as well as to gather any and all pertinent information to share with the parents/guardians of every dancer within the studio.
  • The staff member in charge of supervising the symptomatic dancer will provide the dancer with a mask to wear, and will themselves be provided with a mask and appropriate eye protection (goggles or face shield) to limit the potential spread.
  • Following pick-up of the symptomatic dancer Dynamic Dance Force Inc. will close it’s doors for 24 to 48 hours thereafter to facilitate the appropriate environmental cleaning/disinfection of our facilities. In the event of closure our classes will run as scheduled via our previously implemented online class method. Any items used by the symptomatic dancer will be thoroughly cleaned/disinfected.  Items that cannot be cleaned will be removed from the studio and stored in a sealed container for a minimum of 7 days.
  • Any and all dancers, parents/guardians or staff who have been exposed to a confirmed case of COVID-19 will not be permitted into the studio for at least 14 days after contact. Those who test positive for COVID-19 will not be permitted into the studio until at least 24 hours after symptoms have resolved.


  • Alcohol-based hand sanitizing stations are now set up at each of the entrances/exits of our facilities, as well as in all three studios.  Any and all persons entering our facilities must use sanitizer upon entry.
  • When dropping off your dancer we kindly ask that parents/guardians remain on site until we conclude the temperature screening that is necessary for admittance to class.
