We are thrilled to be able to reopen and get back into the studio with our dancers! As the situation with COVID-19 and reopening has evolved and continues to evolve, we have created plans for the upcoming dance season. This information includes current procedures regarding COVID-19 and our business as well as the safety measures we have and will continue to implement. We are also aware that the situation may evolve at any point, so this information is subject to change and be updated with your dancer’s health and safety in mind. While we have active procedures for us all to follow today, we may be required to change in the future based on the recommendations of the Massachusetts state government, CDC, and medical professionals we have kept in dialogue with throughout the pandemic. If these procedures are required to change, we will update them on the COVID-19 section of our website. Know that our priority will always be the safety and health of our dancers and their families.

We understand all of the Elite family has been impacted and affected by COVID-19 in various ways. We have established these procedures to allow us to be able to reopen, have a sense of “normalcy” and to minimize the further impact to our dancers, families, and staff. As you read through and familiarize yourself with these new policies, please reach out to our office if you have any questions or concerns and we will work to find a solution that still prioritizes dancer safety as well as their dance education experience. If any dancer or faculty member is unable to or unwilling to adhere to and follow these procedures, they will not be able to return to Elite this fall.

Each student, staff member, and family have the power to help keep us all safe throughout this process. We will outline each person’s impact and responsibility for you to help us all understand how what we do impacts those around us.

Elite Faculty: We are committed to ensuring all policies established are being followed without exception to ensure dancer safety. We are also committed to following all CDC and Massachusetts guidelines for safety outside of work as well to minimize exposure and risk.

Elite Dancers: Dancers are responsible for reading, understanding, and following all policies, taking direction from Elite Faculty and Staff when given, and helping their fellow dancers to follow the policies as well.

Elite Families: Help continue to educate your dancers on the policies if/when they change, discuss the importance of following these guidelines, and to communicate with respect and compassion as we all navigate a “new normal”.
