COVID-19 SAFETY GUIDELINES

June 8th, 2020

Due to the recent outbreak of COVID-19 in the Seattle area, Sueños de Salsa  is doing its part in helping to curb infection rates. All Sueños de Salsa staff have been educated as to the symptoms of COVID-19 and are practicing safe hygiene. We are holding group classes at this time. If you intend to take lessons, please take a moment to read through these student guidelines.

Every client stepping foot in the studio has a responsibility to help protect the health and well-being of their fellow dancers.

Anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 who has not yet recovered or who has not yet completed the required 14-day quarantine; who has had symptoms of COVID-19 within the last 24 hours; and those who have had contact with someone who had or was suspected to have COVID-19 within the last 14 days are not allowed to enter the studio.

PRIOR TO ENTRY

  1. Safety Video and Consent Waiver: Prior to coming to the studio for lessons please  sign the COVID-19 consent waiver and the separate commitment to adhere to the studio’s reopening policies below. Return these to your teacher before your first lesson so they can log it into the system. You will only be required to do this once. Download this form at the bottom of this page or by clicking here.
  2. Please watch this YouTube video!
  3. Liability Waiver: According to CDC guidelines and those provided to us by the Governor, students over the age of 65 or who are immunocompromised are considered to be “high risk” and particularly vulnerable at this time. Any “High Risk” client will be required to sign a separate waiver of liability before returning to the studio.  See forms below
  4.  Masks: All Sueños de Salsa teachers and staff will be wearing masks for your protection. We ask all students to also wear a mask while on studio premises and have it on prior to entering the studio. Any student who arrives without a mask will not be allowed into the studio, sorry.
  5. Social Distancing: In order to promote social distancing, a limited number of private lessons will be allowed at any one time. There will be no group classes or social dance parties. Private practice will be strictly limited. We appreciate all our students’ understanding, patience and flexibility during this time.

ONCE INSIDE THE STUDIO:

  1. Attire: Please wear your training attire to the studio, and bring your own towel with you to the studio. Please bring a pair of shoes that are dedicated to only be used at Sueños de Salsa or give them a light spray of disinfectant on the soles upon entering the studio. Under no circumstances shall shoes worn in the street be allowed on the dance floor.
  2. Wash Your Hands: Immediately upon entering the studio, please wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer. Also, wash your hands or use hand sanitizer again at the end of the lesson. Our teachers will be doing the same.
  3. Home Base: Having washed your hands, go immediately into the studio and choose an unoccupied chair. Place all your personal items on, under, or beside (but not in front of) the chair. Do not move the chair. This chair will serve as your “home base” throughout the length of the private lesson or private practice session.
  4. Private Practice: Private practice outside of designated practice times is not allowed – this includes before and after a private lesson – unless permission is expressly given. Private practice will be limited to only those students who are currently taking private lessons at Sueños de Salsa. If the floor is too crowded for personal practice, or should a private lesson begin during a practice session that would make the floor too crowded, any student not currently engaged in a private lesson shall wait at their “home base” for their lesson to begin or space to open up on the dance floor.
  5. Social Distancing on the Dance Floor: There shall be no more than 2 students and 1 teachers, or 3 total dancers, on the floor at any one time. Dancers shall make all possible attempts to maintain 6 feet of separation between themselves and all other dancers (except their partner/teacher).
  6. Water and Food: As the studio will not be providing water bottles or cups, we ask that you bring your own personal water bottle. The water fountain may be used only as a place to refill your water bottle. Only one person shall be allowed at the water fountain at a time, therefore if someone else is using the fountain, we ask that you practice safe social distancing while awaiting your turn. We also ask that you do not bring any food or snacks into the studio.
  7. The Lobby, Cubby Holes and Bathrooms: The lobby is to be considered “closed” except to simply pass through. There will be no waiting or congregating in the lobby. Sorry cubby holes are closed. Only one person is allowed to wait for the bathroom or at the front desk at a time.

COVID-19 Waiver of Liability for “High Risk” Clients

“COVID-19 is a new disease and there is limited information regarding risk factors for severe disease.

  •   People 65 years and older
  •   People who live in a nursing home or long-term care facilityPeople of all ages with underlying medical conditions, particularly if not well controlled, including:
  •   People with chronic lung disease or moderate to severe asthma
  •   People who have serious heart conditions
  •   People who are immunocompromised

o Many conditions can cause a person to be immunocompromised, including cancer treatment, smoking, bone marrow or organ transplantation, immune deficiencies, poorly controlled HIV or AIDS, and prolonged use of corticosteroids and other immune weakening medications

  •   People with severe obesity (body mass index [BMI] of 40 or higher)
  •   People with diabetes

We only seek to make you aware of the heightened risks to your health and ask that you agree to the following:

    1. I have made the decision to participate in the aforementioned Activities despite my designation as a “high risk person” with full knowledge of my medical history and current medical status and, therefore, hold Sueños de Salsa harmless from any injury, advancement of illness, or death from participating in said Activities;
