Covid-19 Policy

We at Andrea’s Academy of Dance (AAOD) take the safety & health of our staff and dancers/parents seriously. We are constantly monitoring the CDC and the state for changes/updates that would require us to update our policy. Our current guidelines are as followed:

  • Face coverings (masks or face shields) are required when entering the building. 

  • Staff/teachers will be wearing face coverings when in the building at all times.

  • Masks/face shields must be worn at all times in the common spaces (waiting room, bathrooms, etc.)

  • If a dancer needs to leave their classroom for any reason, a face covering must be worn.

  • Temperature checks will occur before entering the building.

  • Temperatures must be less than 100.4 to proceed.

  • Hand washing before class is required.

  • Studio cleaning will occur on a daily basis after each class and at the end of each night.

  • Only dancers and staff members are permitted in the building until further notice. 

  • In case of emergency, please contact Andrea Grasso (717-989-7034) or Samantha Harsh (717-799-4922) and we will bring your dancer outside
