Dance Art Learning Hub Camp

  Dance Art Education Learning Hub Camp has been created as a response to our community needs due to COVID-19. More children will be making the switch to remote learning for the 2020-2021 School Year and are in need of a safe, clean, learning environment that provides a space for independent learning, as well as safe social interaction.

Led by background checked, adult Instructional Guides/Tutors, Dance Art Education Learning Hub will provide an opportunity for students to complete their required remote learning, as well as participate in daily enrichment activities such as art, basic dance, yoga/stretching, etc. in a safe, socially distanced and small group environment.

Dance Art Education Learning Hub Camp is a way we can support our local schools by keeping enrollments in local districts via their virtual learning platforms. It’s also a way to offer support for parents who may be looking for more help and socialization than may be available at home.

We will release more information as specific plans as released from the schools, but want to provide you with preliminary information and the opportunity to enroll since space is limited. We are doing all we can to prepare a safe, social and fun experience for your children!

Is there a fee?

Yes, the Dance Art Education Learning Hub Camp is a fee-based service similar to a day camp or other youth development activities. Registration requires a one-time, non-refundable enrollment fee of $30 which will hold your space between now and the start of classes. This enrollment fee is separate from Dance Art Dance Studio programs. Beginning the first week of classes, weekly fees of $130 per week, $30 per day will be charged to your account on Monday of each week. For your convenience, weekly fees will be drafted automatically from your card on file beginning Tuesday, September 1st until you terminate your enrollment or full, in-person school resumes and there is no longer a need for our program. Weekly payments allow families’ flexibility to re-enter school should that become an option or go back to learning from home if that becomes necessary. There is a 10% sibling discount offered.

Please note: Due to limited space in this program, a one-week notice is required to withdraw, through phone call or email to our office. 636-938-4047 or mreisdanceart2@aol.com

Why is there a fee?

Weekly fees are charged to cover expenses such as the hiring of staff, background checks, training, administration, equipment, wifi, materials, cleaning, utilities and space.

What protections and procedures are in place to fight the community spread of COVID-19?

Dance Art follows the More Than Just Great Dancing!® Safer Studio™ policies and procedures which focuses on a hierarchy of measures beginning with avoiding contact with anyone with symptoms, followed by frequent hand cleaning and good hygiene practices, amplified cleaning, and minimizing contact and mingling. 

What measures are put in place to foster a sense of normalcy for children in a pandemic world?

The mere act of getting up in the morning, getting dressed and “going to school” can be a significant anchor for a child in a turbulent time. Daily routines are stabilizing for children. Our small class sizes and structure minimize risk and maximize the joyful parts of schools such as socialization. Important routines of school such as classroom greetings, newsletters, enrichment activities and community building are not only still present in our program, they are more important than ever.

Will the staff and students have to wear masks?

Our current St. Louis County mandate requires all staff and students over the age of 5 to wear a cloth face covering when they cannot be distanced 6 feet apart. Our staff will wear face coverings at all times. Students over the age of 5 may remove their mask when at their distanced desk areas (if your family feels comfortable), but must wear a face covering when entering/exiting and moving around our facility. Masks for students under the age of 9 are at family discretion. Once the executive order expires, parents will be allowed to make their own decision for their children of all ages regarding masks and face coverings, unless another order is put into place. Anyone who cannot wear a mask due to developmental, medical, or behavioral health needs is exempt.

What is your illness protocol?

Staff, parents and students should know the symptoms of COVID-19:

• Fever

• Cough

• Shortness of breath

• Diarrhea (watery)

• Sore throat/congestion

• Headache

• Chills

• Muscle and joint pain (multiple)

• Nausea or vomiting

• Loss of sense of smell

 

Staff and students should notify Dance Art and contact healthcare providers if they develop symptoms of COVID-19 or any other illness and will be asked to STAY HOME until they are symptom-free for 72 hours. Any student who becomes unwell during the school day will wait in a special isolation area, which is supervised by a staff member, until a parent or guardian can arrive.

Students or staff who test positively for COVID-19 will follow the country’s current recommendations for self-isolation. Students may take up to a two-week leave of absence and keep their place in the program. If there is a positive report of COVID-19 in our learning community, we will follow the county’s current guidelines for notifications.
