Monarch Movement Company will follow the guidance put forth by the CDC as well as any local and state ordinances when considering Masking and Covid Policy. As we have learned, this guidance is constantly changing. We pledge to make ourselves aware of current science and reflect that in our decision making.

Masking at Monarch

We are following current CDC guidance, which places our community at "moderate risk." Our policies will change when there is a change to our community risk level or a change in guidance.

We appreciate your cooperation in keeping our students, staff, and community as safe as possible.

  • Masks are optional for dancers in our children's classes.

  • Masks are strongly preferred for any non-dancers watching or dropping off for class. This includes parents and siblings.

  • Masking requirements vary for adult classes - please be sure to read the class descriptions when you register online! 

  • Please continue to wear a mask whenever exhibiting symptoms of a respiratory illness of any kind.

Additional Covid & Illness Policies...

To mitigate the spread of the Covid-19 Virus, the entire staff at Monarch Movement Company is vaccinated against the virus.

Students and caregivers entering the studio must submit to a temperature screening and immediately wash or sanitize their hands.

Please consider waiting for your dancer outside the studio at our picnic table or in your car.

Non-dancing space in the studio is quite limited and this is an important way we can reduce crowds and contact.

Classes and choreography are designed in such a way that students do not touch one another.

If a student or household member has been diagnosed with Covid-19 or other contagious illnesses or is exhibiting signs of such illnesses, they should not attend class. The studio is happy to arrange make-up classes.

If a student or family member has been asked to isolate or quarantine from school or work, please do not attend class during that time period. The studio is happy to arrange make-up classes. We want to help these difficult situations feel a little less stressful for our families.

Students and families should consider masking if they are exhibiting signs of any respiratory illness to slow or stop the spread of common colds and flus.

Frequently contacted surfaces such as doorknobs, ballet barres, or props will be sanitized frequently.

Windows and doors may be propped open to allow for maximum fresh air flow when the weather is conducive.
