Mission Statement
At Legacy Dance Studio our program is designed for your dancer to grow individually. We are dedicated to offering classes with a high standard of technique, style and performance. Through discipline, encouragement and hard work, excellence can be achieved by gradually increasing subjects studied and expanding performance opportunities for our students. In order to accomplish these goals, core values in integrity, respect, responsibility, character and professionalism must be maintained.

Teaching Philosophy
It is the philosophy of Legacy Dance Studio to embrace movers at all levels and ages. Our intention is to create a structured, loving, creative environment where students are inspired to express themselves through the art of dance. We use a process oriented curriculum that builds upon the foundations of ballet, tap and jazz dance to create a safe, strong foundation for our students to flourish as they grow and discover their inner dancer. Dance education goes further than just the dance steps, at Legacy students will learn proper body alignment, technique, terminology, and the basic fundamentals needed to pursue dancing in college or professionally.

Dancers

Dancers will wait outside the studio until the lobby is opened for each class, lining up 6 feet apart forming the line towards the awards display window. Dancers should be supervised by a parent or guardian until they enter the studio. Upon entering, dancers will sanitize their hands and head directly to class. Dancers should bring their own water bottle (water fountains will be closed). Any water bottles left at the studio will be thrown away at the end of the night for sanitary reasons. Please send your dancer to class in the appropriate dance shoes and attire. Cubbies will not be available for use. Dancers will have spots along the wall in the lobby and studio for their personal belongings that are 6 feet apart. They must always stay on their assigned spot while in class (6 ft or more from other dancers) .

Dancers will be dismissed while maintaining social distancing Please pick up your dancer promptly so that we can prepare for the next class.

Dancer Checklist:

  • Use the bathroom BEFORE heading to the studio
  • Wait outside forming a Social Distant Compliant line forming in front of the awards display window on tape until lobby is opened
  • Wear dance shoes, dance attire and bring a water bottle, with water to class
  • Apply hand sanitizer upon entering the building and head straight to class
  • Bring Updated liability waiver
  • Please bring as few personal belongings as possible

 

 

Parents, Guardians, and Siblings

Our lobbies will remain closed for now to mitigate the number of germs introduced into our facility. Please feel free to watch class via Zoom (links will be sent out tomorrow). If doing so, please mute your microphone and turn off your video. Dancers will need to be picked up at the front door, please line up 6 feet apart with the line forming towards the next-door café.

Parent Checklist:

  • Always remain outside the building
  • Watch class via Zoom if you would like to
  • Continue to call or email with any questions/concerns
  • Pick up your dancer at the appropriate time and building exit location, form the social distant line towards the next-door café, or wait in your car

Everyone

Restrooms will be sanitized after each use. The door handles, faucets, light switch, and toilet will be cleaned by an employee every time the restroom is used.

What about masks?

This is a personal decision for each family and masks are not required. While Legacy classes are going to be modified to learning choreography, light stretching and light cardio, it is very difficult to breathe while exercising with a face covering. We are also aware of health issues that can occur due to rebreathing CO2 instead of fresh air while exercising.

But what if my dancer isn’t ready?

If for any reason you are not comfortable or confident in these safety measures, please keep your child home and continue doing class via Zoom. We feel very fortunate that we can offer both options to meet everyone’s needs. The following families should keep their dancer home for class:

  • Anyone uncomfortable with sending their child to the studio for any reason currently
  • Any family with multiple dancers enrolled that finds Zoom more convenient for scheduling
  • Anyone with a dancer or family member that feels ill
  • Anyone living with an immune compromised family member
  • Anyone who thinks their child will have problems with social distancing, please continue to do Zoom

We cannot wait to see everyone again and look forward to safely continuing to prepare for this year’s recital. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. We will send a follow up email before classes begin on Monday that addresses any frequently asked questions.
