Plans For Scenarios
Due to the uncertainty of COVID-19, we need to be prepared to move “in and out” of multiple scenarios pending the current Restore IL Phase and guidelines on capacity limits and group sizes. This means that we need a plan for our students which will work within multiple scenarios without sacrificing the integrity of the program. Each classroom has a webcam and all classes/rehearsals will be live on Zoom as will as in-person. In Scenario A-D programs are drop-off only, and the lobby is closed to parents/siblings.
Scenario A: We are in Phase 4 and classes/rehearsals are In-Person with 15 or less students in each class. We will enroll no more than 10 dancers per class so in this scenario the program will function fully In-Person. Classes are shortened by 5 minutes to allow for extra cleaning and to limit interaction in the lobby. Classes will be live on Zoom for those who choose/need to participate virtually.
Scenario B: We are in Phase 3 and classes/rehearsals are In-Person with 10 or less students in each class/rehearsal. In this scenario the program will function fully In-Person. Classes are shortened by 10 minutes to allow for extra cleaning and to limit interaction in the lobby. Classes will be live on Zoom for those who choose/need to participate virtually.
Scenario C: We are restricted to 5 or less students In-Person, and classes/rehearsals are a hybrid of In-Person and Virtual. In this scenario our classes and company groups will be divided into 2 groups with 5 or less students. One group will attend class/rehearsal In-Person while the other group will participate virtually. We would rotate which group attends In-Person class/rehearsal on alternate weeks. Those not in-person would participate virtually. Classes are shortened by 10 minutes to allow for extra cleaning and to limit interaction in the lobby.
Early Childhood classes don't function as well in a hybrid format, for this reason we offer virtual only classes for ages 3-6. In Scenario C-D the parent will decide if they want to continue virtually or pause their class and receive a pro-rated credit on their LoMastro account, the credit will be $25 per class. Note: Early Childhood Virtual Classes are structured differently than in-person classes. They are taught exclusively to students participating virtually. Curriculum is geared towards dancing at home and includes a story time.
Private lessons will be offered to Early Childhood students with 1-5 students.
Scenario D1 (To align with Tier 3 Mitigations): We are restricted to private lessons, which is defined as 25% capacity In-Person, and classes/rehearsals are a hybrid of In-Person and Virtual. In this scenario the parent will decide if they want to continue full virtual or hybrid with no more than 3 students (25% capacity) in-person. Up to 3 students will attend In-Person while the others will participate virtually. We will rotate which 3 students attend In-Person class/rehearsal on alternate weeks. Those not in-person would participate virtually. Classes are shortened by 10 minutes to allow for extra cleaning and to limit interaction in the lobby.
Private lessons will be offered to students with 1-3 students.
Early Childhood can choose to have private lessons with 1-3 students or a fully virtual option as described above in Scenario C.
Scenario D2: We are in Phase 2 (like spring 2020) and in a fully virtual environment. In this scenario we would continue classes virtually with class length shortened by 10 minutes. Teachers will teach from the studio unless a stay at home order is mandated to prevent the teacher from traveling to the studio. If travel to the studio is prohibited, the teacher would teach from home. If we are in Scenario D for more than 4-weeks, a prorated 5% discount will be applied and issued in the form of a credit to the family’s LoMastro account. Note: Dance Company fees will not be adjusted.
Note: If we are in Phase 5, which is highly unlikely, we will operate in Scenario A, except our lobby would be opened.
