Covid Protocols

Hybrid Classes2021-09-04T06:26:14-04:00
As of September 20, 2021, Ancient Art Studios’ hybrid classes will feature two options for dance students of all ages, sizes, and shapes.
  1. In-person classes, with COVID-19 guidelines listed below, welcome those who wish to experience dancing, growing, and the studio setting alongside other students and teachers abiding by the listed guidelines.
*To register for in-person classes you MUST complete both the purchase of class passes and the reservation step. You may purchase and reserve as many classes as you like as far ahead as you would like. This system both limits class size to 12, allows un-used slots to be available to others and, most importantly, this system keeps our studio numbers safe and records of attendance easily traceable.
  1. Live-stream classes, using our state-of-the-art zoom studio, welcome students from their own home spaces via a digital connection to those in the studio. Enthusiastic teachers with an eye for detail can use our huge wall-screen projector to view at-home students and provide aid or positive witness. Before, during, and after classes, our in-person students can also connect to live-streamers with waves, shared dances, and sharing questions and observations about the material. New camera, lighting, projector, high speed technology, and backdrop make this a top-of-the-line zoom send and a great place to be.
Details are below for both options.
In-Person Class Size2021-09-04T06:21:51-04:00
All in-person classes are available with a maximum class size of 12 students in the studio. These limited slots are open to those who, both, purchase and register online (registration starting September 6th) and who are following the guidelines outlined below.
Self Screening2021-09-04T06:19:36-04:00
Before joining in-person weekly classes please assess yourself and the situations you are exposed to.
If you answer yes to any of the following questions, do not attend class in person. Change your reservation status from In-person to Live-Stream and join us on Zoom instead.
    • have you had a cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, fever, or do you feel feverish?
    • do you have a loss of taste or smell?
    • have you been around anyone exhibiting the above symptoms within the past 14 days?
    • are you living with anyone sick or quarantined?
    • were you with anyone who was covid positive since your last class?
    • have you been in or around a large group where risks of infection were significantly increased between classes?
    • are you awaiting results of a covid test? (all tests must be no sooner than 72 hours after exposure)
Mask Guidelines2021-09-04T06:22:16-04:00
As of this publishing (Sept 2021) masking is required for anyone entering the studio regardless of vaccination status.
Nothing would make us happier than to give the masking issue back to each person in the studio to manage according to their own risks and those of their loved ones. But, for now, thank you for masking in accordance with the  CDC recommendation  for masking of both vaccinated and unvaccinated in areas with “substantial and high transmission” of COVID-19. Massachusetts is currently “high transmission”.
