Inclement Weather Policy
In the event of inclement weather, an email will be sent and a Facebook post will be made by 3 pm if classes are cancelled. Please note that we do not necessarily follow school closings, as roads are often cleared by the time studio classes begin.
(updated 7/21) In the event that we have to close due to illness or pandemic, classes will be held online with a condensed schedule. If the studio must be closed longer than 2 weeks students will receive a 20% discount. All other policies still continue as above.
Safer Studio Policy
FDC requires all staff and students to stay home when they are ill. In order to reduce community spread of Coronavirus, we follow best practices and recommendations from authorities and industry associations. FDC understands that unlike older children and adults, young children cannot be expected to maintain social distancing at all times. Therefore FDC focuses on a hierarchy of measures beginning with keeping ill people home, followed by frequent hand cleaning and good hygiene practices, amplified cleaning, and curricular and facility adaptations to minimize contact and mingling where possible. All studio classes are backed up on an online learning platform. In the event a class is unable to be held at the studio classes will convert to an online learning platform until in-studio classes can resume. In the event a teacher is sick and a sub is not available, classes will either be on zoom or rescheduled.
*Flips N Fun will be in February/March, with classes continuing until May 21
*Dance Showcase 2021 date is either April 30/May 1 or May 7/8 (Classes continue until May 21)
*We have multiple shows and dancers 6 and up could possibly be in multiple shows. We do not receive official paperwork from the school until Jan. We will try to make sure all siblings are in the same show.
