COVID-19 Coronavirus Update

COVID-19 Coronavirus Update

In response to COVID-19, Maples Academy of Dance has suspended classes, with the intention to resume regular classes on April 13, 2020. The studio office will be operating on modified hours during this time: Monday to Thursday from 4pm-7pm. All notifications and updates regarding changes to future classes or competitions will be provided via our email newsletters, on social media, and will be posted to the website. Please check these frequently for updates and information.

We encourage the following actions to do your part to help:

  • Everyone should wash your hands frequently with warm, soapy water for at least 20 seconds, or use an alcohol based hand sanitizer to cleanse hands.
  • Cover your mouth with tissues whenever you sneeze or cough and discard tissues in the trash.  If a tissue is not available, sneeze or cough in your upper arm.
  • Avoid touching your face.  This means using proper make-up brushes to apply make-up, and cleaning them regularly.  And never share make up with anyone else – brushes, lipsticks, anything!
  • Keep your personal items – costumes, make up, shoes etc. – contained properly in a bag, rather than tossing them about in the dressing room and change room, to ensure there is space for everyone.
  • Never share water bottles!
  • Make responsible decisions to stay home if you are sick.  This includes regular classes as well as competitions.  Please be mindful of others in attendance – if you are experiencing flu-like symptoms, we ask that you not attend the studio or competitions, either as a dancer or an audience member.
  • We encourage everyone to make responsible decisions and not travel to any international high-risk areas.  If you do make the decision to travel we ask that you self-isolate and not attend the studio for 14 days after travel.
  • If your dancer is going to be missing class or a competition, please call and leave a message at the studio office or send an email.

Thank you for your patience, understanding and cooperation as we navigate this unique situation.
