Important Notice

Message to Our Fred Astaire Dance Studios® Family

As we all follow the impact of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), Fred Astaire Dance Studios® Richmond wants you to know that your health and well-being is our top priority. We appreciate the trust you place in us, and we are taking steps to maintain your safety and the safety of our team members.

Effective immediately, we are putting the following policies in place at our studio:

We are adhering to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention’s (CDC) guidelines to thoroughly clean and disinfect studio surfaces. The studio will be cleaned and disinfected every evening, and our team members will be disinfecting frequently used surfaces as much as possible while the studio is open.

Our usual hired professional cleaning service has been upgraded specifically to address COVID-19. They will be sending us an itemized list of the exact cleaning and disinfecting procedures being implemented for COVID-19 this weekend and we will pass that on ASAP.

All students and team members will be asked to wash their hands with soap and water or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol before and after every lesson.

We will have hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol and tissues for you to use at any time. In fact, our hand sanitizer has 75% alcohol and is available at reception and the music station.

We are changing our normal cancellation policy to 8 hours before your lesson begins to give you more flexibility if you need to reschedule due to illness, exposure to someone who is ill or self-quarantine

All of our team members who are sick or have been exposed to a sick individual will be staying home

If you are sick or have or have been exposed to a sick individual, please stay home, rest and reschedule your lesson with us

As of now, we will continue to provide practice parties and group classes, subject to additional updates and recommendations from the CDC and from Richmond, Chesterfield and Virginia governments and health departments.

We are actively monitoring the situation, and we will share additional updates to help ensure your continued safety and well-being. We love dancing with all of you and helping you experience the joy of dance. But if you are feeling sick, or have been around people who are sick, we look forward to dancing with you when you are better. Your health is our top priority.

If you have any questions or would like to reschedule your lessons, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our certified dance instructors and studio team members are here for you.

Cheers,

Tommy Bettin
