COVID-19 RE-OPENING PLAN

We are excited to let you know that Governor Greg Abbott has given us the green light to re-open all exercise facilities that includes Ambition Dance Productions (the “studio")  in the State of Texas. As we continue to work through the process of getting our facilities and employees ready for this “re-opening” – which we expect to happen on May 18, 2020 – there are things we can and should do to help keep each other safe.

Studio Operation

Rest assured we are taking steps to educate our staff and prepare our studio to create a safe, healthy and enjoyable environment for dancing, having fun and being together again. Creating this safe and healthy environment however, requires that we all do our part. In addition to the steps we’re taking as a business, we are requesting your cooperation, and the cooperation of all of our dancers and visitors, in complying with the rules and policies described below:

Most importantly, please don’t come to the studio if you, your child or anyone in your family has been diagnosed with coronavirus, you’ve been in close proximity to someone who has recently had the coronavirus, if you’re feeling sick, you have a fever, you have a cough, or you’re experiencing general difficulty breathing. Although the ban on business closures has been lifted, the risks associated with coronavirus are still very real. Successful physical distancing means staying home and remaining quarantined if you’re exhibiting any of the symptoms commonly associated with coronavirus. The best, most effective way to prevent yourself and others from becoming ill is to avoid exposure to coronavirus.

Effective immediately the following procedures have been put into place:

  • Ambition Dance is now a drop-off/pick-up studio only until further notice. If a parent needs to speak to Wendy or Laura, please schedule a meeting.
  • At the entrance of each classroom, hand sanitizer will be provided to each student and the teacher will confirm it is used. We also ask that each dancer bring their own small bottle to use at their convenience.
  • We will end classes 5 minutes early to wipe down any surfaces used in class (Ballet Barres, mats, etc). Any shared props that are used for younger classes will no longer be used. For Stretch & Conditioning classes, we ask that all dancers bring in their own mats from home.
  • Our studio is professionally cleaned each week – we have increased the frequency of professional cleaning. Between cleanings we will increase wiping down of all surfaces throughout each day.
  • Dressing room areas will be closed to minimize social interaction, so we ask that all dancers are ready for class when they arrive.
  • All classes will require shoes and socks to be worn until further notice.
  • No touching – all partnering works and lifts in classes and rehearsals will be marked – no hugs, handshakes or high fives. 
  • Please bring your own water bottle as water fountains will be closed until further notice.
  • Signs will be posted in bathrooms to follow 20-second rule when washing hands. Only two people will be allowed in the bathroom at one time.
  • Bathrooms will be wiped down twice per hour during studio hours.
  • Masks will be optional for dancers as there are issues with children exercising wearing masks – if you choose to have your dancer wear a mask while dancing please be aware of any breathing issues that may occur and make sure it is safe for your dancer.
  • Please note that occupancy and class size will be limited to maintain effective physical distancing practices and to comply with Orders of state  and local officials.

These “coronavirus rules” are not comprehensive and may be revised by us at any time. Once again, your health and safety while in our studio is extremely important to us. We expect  you, our dancers, our visitors, our members and our staff to abide by the rules and  guidelines described above.

As a business, if we determine a dancer is violating these coronavirus rules, we reserve the right to deny entry into the studio or require that a dancer leave the studio if these coronavirus rules are not followed.

Please note that while the coronavirus pandemic remains an active threat, we may operate under modified studio hours – you can check the website for up-to-date information about business hours.

Disclaimer as to Coronavirus-Related Liabilities

In addition to being unprecedented, the coronavirus pandemic remains a highly fluid situation. While the state has permitted some businesses to reopen, including ours, the risks posed by coronavirus remain. While we have taken steps to keep you and our dancers healthy and safe while at  our studio, unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that one of our dancers  will not become ill with coronavirus. This being the case, it’s important to know that your choice to return to the studio is at your own risk – you assume all risk and liability associated with coronavirus infection. We are asking all dancers (or parent/guardian on behalf of dancer)  to sign their acknowledgement to a special “coronavirus release” which we will require prior to entering the studio. Of course, we would love seeing all of our dancers  as soon as possible – the time away has been difficult, to be sure – but if you’re not comfortable returning to the studio right now, or you’re concerned about exposure to the coronavirus, the best practice would be to remain at home.

WAIVER AND RELEASE OF LIABILITY

In consideration of the risk of injury while participating in dance instruction (the “Activity”) at Ambition Dance Productions  (the "studio"), and as consideration for the right to participate in the Activity,  I hereby agree as follows for  myself,   my heirs,   my executors,   administrators,   next of kin,   successors,  assigns,  and personal representatives:

Release of Liability/Assumption of the Risk Relating to Coronavirus/Covid 19: Coronavirus (COVID-19) has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. Coronavirus is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. As a result, federal, state and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend physical distancing and have, in many places, prohibited the assembly of large groups.

You understand that by accessing the studio, you may be putting you, your guests and/or your family at increased risk for contracting coronavirus. You further acknowledge that individuals with health conditions such as heart disease, cancer or diabetes may be more likely to suffer more severe symptoms as a result of contracting the coronavirus.

By signing below, you (referred to below as “I”) understand, acknowledge and agree to the following statements:

I assume the risk that I, my guests and/or my child(ren) may be exposed to or become infected with coronavirus andsuch exposure and/or infection may result in personal injury; illness, causing mild symptoms such as, fever or body aches, or more severe complications, such as pneumonia or organ failure; permanent disability or death; andI further understand that the risk of exposure to or infection with coronavirus may result from the acts, omissions, or negligence or myself or others, including but not limited to, the employees, owners and other members of Ambition Dance Productions.
