Safety Protocols

The safety of our students and staff is our utmost concern and appreciate everyone working together to keep us healthy.

Please carefully read the following instructions:


1. Masks are OPTIONAL when in the studio. MDC does not request nor will disclose the vaccination status of any dancer, parent, or team member. 


2. The lobby area is closed at this time. The main lobby space has been blocked off and all toys, books, etc. have been removed.

2. We will adhere to a strict drop-off and pick-up policy for ALL dancers. No parents or siblings can enter the studio. Exceptions are made for trial class parents and UKID parents.

  • Drop-Off Procedures:

    • A parent or guardian must park (in a parking spot) and bring their dancer to the front door.

    • Dancers will be checked in with a team member at the door. An emergency contact number must be on file.

    • A no-touch thermometer will be on site.

    • Dancers may only bring in what is needed for class. Please no extra food, toys, or additional items. Only needed dance shoes and class materials.

    • The water cooler is available. Dancers will need to bring their own water bottles, disposable cups are not available at this time. 

    • At check-in, dancers will be given a basket for their items and asked to wait in designated spaces in the studio before entering class.

  • Pick Up Procedures:

    • Dancers will be lined up inside the back exit door.

    • Parents will need to come to the back door for dancers to be released one at a time to them. Dancers cannot cross the street or go into the parking lot without an adult.

    • Please be on time to pick up your dancer.


3. Parents please park your cars to drop off or pick up your dancer. Please do not double park or block the flow of traffic.

4. Dancers must arrive dressed for class. The restroom may not be used as a dressing area. We recommend dancers use the restroom at home if possible before coming to class.

5. Ballet barres are only used in certain classes and will be disinfected between each use.

6. Accessible surface areas will be wiped down with Lysol and Clorox in between each class.

7. The studio will be cleaned every day before classes begin. Also, our studio will be deep cleaned twice a week by a cleaning service.

8. Garbage will be removed daily. Any personal items left behind in the studio or waiting area may be thrown away!

9. All students attending classes at the studio will be required to sign an updated waiver/release form.

10. If your child is running a fever or is feeling ill, please do not bring them to class. They are welcome to join us for their class virtually.

Melina’s will continue to adhere and abide by safety regulations as mandated.
