Dear all,

 

We are beyond excited to welcome you back to the studio the week of July 13th. Your health and safety is paramount and a responsibility that IMAC takes very seriously.

Please be assured that IMAC is following the health and safety guidelines as prescribed by the CDC, as well as other federal, state and local agencies, and public health departments. We understand that many of you may not be ready to return now, or anytime soon. We want you to know that we understand and honor your decision and IMAC will be here for you, virtually, as much as we are able. Please take moment to thoroughly read the protocols and procedures below before coming to class at the studio. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at info@indymovementarts.org

New Studio Protocols

  • We will be cleaning and disinfecting high-touch surfaces, floors, bathrooms, and more multiple times/day.

  • Hand sanitizer will be available directly inside the entrance to the building and in the studio.

  • Bathrooms will be stocked with hand soap for washing hands before and after class.

  • Class sizes will be reduced to a maximum of 7 students/class to allow for 6ft+ between each person. There are marks on the dance floor to indicate where each dancer should stand to ensure we maintain 6ft+ of distance. 

  • Teachers will not be giving hands on corrections.

  • Everyone MUST wear a mask in the common areas: lobby, hallways, bathrooms, or entering/exiting the building. Masks are not required during class, but can be worn at your discretion. We will have disposable masks available directly inside the entrance in case you forget to bring one with you.
