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. If you have any symptoms of Covid-19 or have been exposed to anyone with symptoms of Covid-19, please stay home.

Based on Washtenaw County's "medium" transmission status, the Ballet Chelsea Board of Directors, in accordance with CDC guidelines, has adjusted the masking policy to “strongly recommended”. The Board will continue to watch conditions closely and update protocols as necessary.

Below you will find our most up-to-date Covid-19 protocols and screening questions. Registered dancers and families can find additional supporting, detailed plans and protocol documents by logging into the BC Online Portal and searching in the SHARED FILES icon (musical note icon) >> Covid-19 Policies and Procedures folder.

COVID-19 Protocols

As of March 3, 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. In addition, registered students and parents can find our in depth plans and protocol documents by logging into the BC Online Portal and searching in the SHARED FILES icon (musical note icon) >> Covid-19 Policies and Procedures folder.

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.

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

All dancers and staff will be asked screening questions and have their temperature taken before the start of their class. 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 wendi@balletchelsea.org.

Please note, all students will be required to wear a mask while in the studio. At this time, only dancers and staff are allowed into the studio to minimize congestion and maintain social distancing in our common areas.
