Assumption of the Risk and Waiver of Liability Relating to Coronavirus/COVID-19


The coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. Federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing, face mask, hand washing, hand sanitizer and temperatures taken when entering a facility.


Miss Tanya’s School of Dance Inc. has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19, by adding the following:

  1. Upon entering the studio all temperatures must be taken including staff and students. Once taken and cleared students will then go into their assigned classroom and assigned spot. If a student or a staff member has a temperature of 100.4 or greater, it is considered a fever and will be asked to go home. We are asking when a parent drops – off their child/children they wait in the parking lot for a few minutes to make sure that we do not have to send them home due to a temperature.
  2. Students will be required to use hand sanitizer as they arrive and wear face masks in the lobby areas, bathrooms and classrooms when entering. Students will not be required to wear a mask when they are dancing, but it is up to your discretion if they wear a mask or face shield while dancing. We will have a touchless sanitizer station that will be in the lobby for use and there will be touchless sanitizer stations in each classroom and throughout the studio. We will follow the CDC guidelines for cleaning and sanitization. We have purchased the correct cleaning products recommended by the CDC and are EPA approved for all hard surfaces, bathrooms and also for our Marley floors and will clean the studios surfaces in between classes. Each day the studio will be thoroughly cleaned, including the carpeted area.
  3. We have purchased H13 HEPA Air purifiers for all three studios and one in the lobby area.
  4. There will be no chairs in the wait areas, all water coolers will be removed from the classrooms. Students may bring in their own water (ONLY) labeled clearly with their name.  The NO FOOD policy will be strictly enforced.
  5. Students will be required to sign-in and sign-out for bathroom use, to allow us to clean in between each use. The bathrooms will have anti-bacterial soap and hand sanitizer for use. 
  6. The changing room will not be used, so students will be required to come in full attire. More information will be given out at a later date regarding dress code. We are asking that students bring in their own small bag, which will be brought into the classroom with them. Cubicles will not be used. Dance shoes will be required to be worn (no bare feet will be allowed, including dance paws)
  7. Each classroom will have designated spots to indicate the 6 ft. social distance rule.
  8. Class size will be smaller. We may not be able to offer all of the classes that we have had in the past due to the new guidelines that we must follow. 
  9. We will use different entrances and exits for each class.
  10. If a student has traveled in any areas in the US that have elevated Covid 19 cases, such as the southern states (especially Florida) , Texas, Arizona or California they must self-quarantine for 14 days, or have a Covid test done to show that they are negative to return to dance.
