At Creative Dance & Music Studio, the health and safety of our students, faculty and guests always comes first. Over the past 6 months we have followed all guidelines and recommendations by the CDC, State of Louisiana, Department of Health, Jefferson Parish, JEDCO and more. On June 8 our dancers and musicians returned to the studio.
All students have the option to take classes in person or on-line. CDMS has invested in technology so that our dancers can attend their classes LIVE, see their teachers and dance-mates, and participate in learning. Since March 23, our musicians have been attending on-live private music lessons from the comfort of their home. At this time in-studio lessons are possible if the musician chooses.
Please read the flyer below to learn about our safety procedures for parents and students. If you have any questions, we are here to help. Give us a call 504-390-2552 or send an email firstname.lastname@example.org.
UPDATE: July 1, 2020 - Per Jefferson Parish, masks must be worn to enter the building. Please check your emails to learn more about that policy in dance and music lessons.
UPDATE: September 11, 2020 - With Phase 3, we can allow a few more people in the building but must be aware of the 75% occupancy limit. Our lobbies actually hold less than our dance rooms, so we cannot safely have one parent for each dancer. We ask you to remain in the car, or outside, if you aren't essential to your dancer. Those we consider essential are parents of 2-3 year olds and first time students who need a week or two to be comfortable. Otherwise, only ONE parent is allowed. No siblings, guests or other family relatives. And those in the lobby MUST remain on a marker, in a mask or covering (unless unable). Remember, we are still limited. If you bring a sibling or guest, it takes a spot away from a parent of a student. If there is not enough space for all, we must ask you to wait outside. We apologize for the inconvenience, but it's what we must do to remain open.
UPDATE: November 29, 2020 - Return to Phase 2. Capacity is restricted to 50% occupancy. Our lobby is closed due to the stipulation of no indoor waiting spaces or lobbies. Dancers ages 2-5 may have 1 parent walk them to class, but they will need to wait outside during dance class. Students should arrive only 5 minutes before class. All must be in a mask and dancers must put on dance shoes before entering the dance room. We will continue to space dancers at 6', eliminate the use of shared props, and disinfect often. Please encourage your child to use hand sanitizer when entering the building and when leaving the dance room. Teachers will supervise dismissal.
