At Ballet Chelsea, the health of our community is of the utmost importance. We must all play our part to ensure we are able to continue offering in-person classes. We ask that our dancers and staff continue to do their part to create and maintain a culture of safety and health in the Ballet Chelsea studio.
Based on Washtenaw County's "low" transmission status, the Ballet Chelsea Board of Directors, in accordance with CDC guidelines, has adjusted the masking policy to “optional”. The Board will continue to watch conditions closely and update protocols as necessary.
Based on the state of Michigan's order to lift all indoor and outdoor settings capacity limits, Ballet Chelsea is now open to all parents/guardians/caregivers, siblings/friends, and visitors.
As of July 1, 2022 Ballet Chelsea has implemented updated safety protocols for in-studio classes. Further information and details on our studio policy update is available in the downloadable PDF below.
Student Policy Agreement
Prior to taking in-person classes all students will be required to complete our Student Policy Agreement. Dancers or parents will be prompted to sign the agreement after registering for a class. For instruction on how to register for classes click here.
Our Student policy agreement outlines all the protocols students are expected to follow while at Ballet Chelsea. This agreement reviews how students are to arrive at the studio, how they should enter and exit the dance studio, as well as other key details to ensure the health and safety of our community at Ballet Chelsea.
Student Screening & Protocols
Before entering Ballet Chelsea all dancers, staff, parents and visitors should be able to answer "no" to our screening questions. Below is a copy of the questions each student will be asked.
If you notice your student displaying any symptoms of Covid-19, or if your student has come into contact with someone who is suspected to have or currently has Covid-19, please not bring them to the studio and contact Wendi DuBois at [email protected].
Please note, masks are optional while inside Ballet Chelsea. Parents and visitors are welcome to sit in our waiting room or tour our space.
