OC Dance partners with various cities in OC, LA, and Riverside counties. These policies are set up to honor each city’s policies and procedures as well as provide a safe and fun learning environment for dancers. Please review these class standards. We thank you for your understanding.

  1. Please arrive 5-10 minutes early and be sure to follow the current implemented guidelines and rules for COVID safety (will be sent to registrants and updated weekly dependent up state and local directives at that time). If you arrive after start of class, please have your dancer quietly enter the studio and join us. We may cover important updates at the beginning of class so please check-in with instructor after class and check the whiteboard for any announcements.
  2. Bathroom breaks could be distracting during class time. You will notice that once a dancer asks to go to the restroom, the others will follow. Please take your dancer to the restroom prior to class starting!
  3. Dancers need to be picked up on time and instructors will not be responsible for children outside of class time. We ask that you please try to remain near the room during class time (depending on city COVID policies). If your child needs you for any reason during class, your instructor can wave you to the room as they are not allowed to leave the dance room unattended during class time for any reason. Many cities do charge for late pick-ups. Any late pick-ups will generally result in dancer being taken to the recreation office after class.
  4. For safety reasons, we ask that you please pick up your child from the classroom. The City asks that you personally check them out of class to ensure that they are being picked up by a love one and not being left behind. The dance room is located near a busy street and it can be scary watching a child run out of the doors without an adult. So please make sure that you are on time for your child, either in the lobby waiting for your dancer or by the doors near the dance room after class and be sure your instructor sees you in the doorway before you leave.
  5. Siblings are not allowed to wait unsupervised.
  6. No gum, candy or anything in the dancer’s mouth is permitted at the start of class (safety/choking hazard)
  7. All COVID-19 protocols will be in effect for the duration of the Fall and are subject to change at any given moment. OC Dance and the hosting city reserve the right to change these policies and procedures at any time. *Please see COVID-19 guidelines & protocols per OC Dance and city location for more information.
  8. All waivers and agreements must be turned in or submitted in completion with all signatures and requested information before class starts and dancers enter the dance room. These waivers and agreements MUST be signed by the legal parent or guardian. Nannies, grandparents, babysitter signatures are not accepted.
  9. The City policy is that the doors may not be opened until the class begins, so please make sure that you are with your dancer until then, they will not be supervised before class.
  10. If there are any injuries or anything the instructor should be aware of regarding your child, please inform your instructor before class starts. It’s our job to keep you safe and have a fun time. So please let us know so we can help you!
  11. Please refrain from bringing your child to class if he/she is sick. Stay home, get better, and keep germs out of the dance space. We appreciate your help in keeping other dancers and instructors healthy.
  12. You are welcome to video record your dancer in class. But due to security and consideration for other families, please do not share your video online (social network platforms, youtube, etc).

*Our dancers’ and staffs’ safety is of the utmost importance and priority during the COVID-19 pandemic. All policies and protocols are subject to change at any given time due to the fluid state of these state and local guidelines as weeks progress. OC Dance reserves the right to update, change, and implement these rules and regulations at any an all-times to remain a responsible business in our communities. OC Dance also reserves the right to refuse services to any family and/or participant who does not comply with these policies and protocols. No refunds will be processed for those who do not comply.

  1. All participants’ parent or guardian is required to complete and turn in all COVID disclosures, waivers, and agreements in full prior to entering class.
  2. Masks may be required for classes at the time of the course. OCDP will comply with any and all local and city regulations regarding masks for participants and instructors. Masks will also be available for purchase if needed from the instructor.
  3. Temperatures may be checked upon arrival by the instructor or the city to ensure COVID safety measures. Any child with a temperature above 100.4 will not be permitted in class or camp. Parent may wait 5-10 minutes for an additional check due to warm weather or active child. Upon the 3rd check if the fever persists above 100.4  degrees the child will not be allowed into the program. No refunds will be given for missed days.
  4. All city-location classes may have different or additional policies and protocols than listed here. Please refer to your receipt notes and your welcome emails for updated protocols for that specific location or city.
  5. Some locations will use props. If used in class a clean and dirty bin will be present and items will be returned to the “dirty” bin. All props will be cleaned and dried immediately per COVID standards and solutions listed and approved by the CDC website as a sterilizing agent for COVID-19.
  6. Parents are responsible for reminding kids each day prior to entering camp or class about these policies, that they must be followed, and that the parent will be contacted to pick up the child if not complied.
  7. Teachers are instructed to call parents immediately for pick-up if child will not comply with the rules after being asked to.
  8. A sanitizing schedule will be in place for all classes. This includes prior to class, in increments as required by state, local and CDC guidelines, and after every class. Longer increments may be implemented between classes in blocks. Class may start late on occasion due to extra sanitation for any reason. OC Dance reserves the right to start class slightly late to adhere to these rules and regulations and will do so to ensure safety first for our families and staff.
  9. Social distancing protocol will be put into place with the recommended 6’ apart markers in the dance space area. Time will be taken at the beginning of the session or class to set these parameters and rules in place with participants. Non-compliance will result in being removed from class immediately. No refunds will be given for non-compliance in safety regulations. Please continue to remind your children outside of class to listen and comply with these guidelines with their instructor.
  10. Any existing cough, cold, or runny nose could be perceived as a COVID-19 symptom. Any participant that displays these symptoms will not be allowed into class without a doctor’s note indicating that the diagnosis is NOT related to COVID-19 (ie. Allergies, etc.). Without this official note presented to the instructor or OC Dance management, OC Dance reserves the right to drop the child from class without a refund.
  11. If any symptoms are presented after check-in, participant will be immediately given a face covering, requested to put it on, parent/guardian will be called for pick-up, and participant will be asked to wait in the lobby away from other participants until parent/guardian is able to pick up child. This regulation is non-negotiable. No refunds will be given if child must be taken home due to COVID-19 symptoms as listed and required by the OC Health Department.
  12. In the event COVID-19 surges and city and/or state directive is to shut businesses again all programming will move to an online format, as directed per city. No refunds will be given as the programming will still run in a virtual capacity if mandated.
  13. All participants will be asked to wash hands prior to entry at the beginning of class.
  14. All families are asked to bring their own hand sanitizer and keep with the adult during class. Children and families are asked to please use their sanitizer upon arrival prior to opening doors, touching surfaces or if the restroom is not accessible or one cannot maintain 6 ft distance standards by washing hands prior to class.
  15. Parents and/or siblings will not be permitted in the dance room as OC Dance must adhere to the max number of people in one room per distancing standards. Rooms and locations have pre-determined maximum counts and cannot allow additional people in the room at any time. Additionally, OC Dance cannot allow anyone near the dancers who is not enrolled as they have not been checked for COVID symptom. We ask that all families please respect these policies for safety.
  16. OC Dance prohibits sharing of foods, beverages and supplies either brought by child or provided by OC Dance at any time during the pandemic.
  • If you are participating in a Parent & Me class, we ask each dancer has only one parent/caretaker accompanying them. If you have two children participating in the Parent & Me class, then each dancer needs one parent to themselves. You will find that it is easier for you and your child. Please make sure there is always a 1:1 parent/child ratio.
  • Many cities require an additional waiver or sign-in sheet for any adult entering the dance space with the dancer.
  • You are welcome to video record your dancer in class, as long as it does not disrupt the class. But due to security, please do not share your video online (social network platforms, youtube, etc).
  • Please do not enter the dance room unless your instructor is also in there with you. (City policy)
  • For the safety of other dancers and to keep our studio clean, please throw away any gum in your mouth and finish any snacks before you enter the classroom.
  • Our dance room has quite an echo. Practice your inside voices while in the dance room or lobby.
  • Please do not hang on the bars. This can lead to serious injury or cause the barre to break.
  • Floors are very slippery in our building. Please no running unless your instructor has told you to do so in an organized manner.
  • Use your best listening skills. (Just like in school, we want to be able to learn, have fun, and not miss a beat in class. Therefore, please try to not talk with neighbors in class or shout out, if you have a question about class you can raise your hand and I will call on you.)
  • Keep hands and feet to yourself. (For your child’s safety.)
  • Only dancers registered for the class are allowed to be in the room (City policy).

We want everyone to have a fun time learning dance, and to make it fair for everyone’s learning/dancing experience, thus OCDP has worked with our cities to establish these corrective actions:

  1. Verbal: I will say the dancer(s)’ name and state that he/she has a verbal warning for whichever class rule has been broken.
  2. Sit Out of Class: If behavior continues, I will have the child sit as an audience member until he/she is ready to participate appropriately.
  3. Meeting with Parent: If misbehavior continues the dancer(s) will be asked to sit out during the remainder of the class or until he/she is ready to participate appropriately. Your instructor will speak with the parent after class is over.

BULLY-FREE ZONE

OC Dance Productions has a zero tolerance policy regarding child harassment or “bullying” in any of our classes, camps or events. If you are having any issues in class please notify your instructor and they will work with our main office and city to resolve the issue.

  1. Any class registered for through a city website/program will fall under that city’s policy for cancelations and withdraws. Please contact the city for your request.
  2. All classes and/or camps are subject to cancellation or change at any time.
  3. Fees are not prorated for missed classes or crafts. Make-ups for missed classes will fall under that city’s policy. Please contact the city for your request.

Summer 2020 Testimonials

  • Charlie and her friend Kayla had a wonderful time! I thought you (Miss Marissa) did a wonderful job of staying professional while enforcing protocols that are for our safety. The Covid protocols enforced by OC Dance were what’s needed at this time and were professionally enforced for the safety of our littlest ones. There is a community need for safe, fun and professional programs. We would definitely take more classes and camps with OC Dance Productions in the future. Thank you for everything! – Crystal, San Clemente
  • Thanks, Marissa! Izzy has a really good time and you did a great job! – Kevin, San Clemente
