Our Commitment to Safety
ALL DANCERS ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR A FACE MASK AT THIS TIME
Because we take Covid-19, the health and safety of all of our faculty staff and students very seriously, our enhanced cleaning regimen includes daily sanitation by a professional housekeeping service and weekly Covid-19 spraying by Caremaster with approved CDC sanitizers. Likewise, we have closed all common areas and have dedicated entrance and exit doors which keeps studio foot traffic flowing one way. Finally, since GCB has always maintained small class sizes, we have allocated extra time in our daily schedule for touch up cleaning between each class.
COVID-19 POLICY & PROCEDURE
1. Before returning to class you must sign our COVID-19 liability waiver and we ask that you review our short questionnaire each week before returning (which will ensure there has been no international travel or illness in your family within the past 14 days.)
