SAFETY

 
All of LINES Ballet’s onsite staff and teachers are fully vaccinated. They are adhering to the following Onsite Safety Policies and we ask that all visitors do the same:

ONSITE SAFETY POLICIES:

  • WEAR A MASK AT ALL TIMES UNLESS YOU ARE FULLY VACCINATED – If you are fully vaccinated, you may show your vaccination card to the LINES Dance Center front desk staff when you check-in for your class, workshop, or studio rental. They will make a note of your status and you will then have the option to remove your mask going forward if you choose.
     
    If you are not fully vaccinated, you must wear a mask or facial covering that covers your mouth and nose at all times while onsite. We recommend bringing a back-up mask in case your first mask becomes damp with sweat (a damp mask decreases its efficacy). Extra masks are also available upon request.
     
    This policy is also in place for our staff members and teachers, so if you see a teacher who is mask-less, rest assured, they are fully vaccinated as well!
     
  • REDUCE CROWDING – Please arrive no more than 15 minutes prior to your class’s start time to aid the flow of traffic through the building. LINES Dance Center reserves the right to deny entry to any person who arrives late for a class. Please exit the building in a timely manner after your class ends.
     
  • WASH YOUR HANDS – Wash your hands frequently with soap, or use hand sanitizer. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. If you travel to the building via public transportation, please sanitize your hands upon arrival.
     
  • BE MINDFUL OF YOUR BELONGINGS – Please bring only what you need and can store in designated areas such as lockers and cubbies. Leave valuables at home. Please refrain from eating in the building.
     
  • TRACK YOUR SYMPTOMS & EXPOSURE – Do not visit the premises if you have a fever or do not feel well, have traveled internationally within the past 14 days, have been in contact with someone with COVID-19 in the past 14 days, or have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days.

 

Visitors who do not adhere to these policies will be asked to leave the space. Our policies are subject to change based on guidance from the San Francisco Department of Public Health. Policies will be re-evaluated and adjusted as necessary on a regular cadence.

LINES Dance Center is taking many precautions to ensure a safe environment, including:

  • Instituting and enforcing the above Onsite Safety Policies.
  • Continuously disinfecting studios and common areas and providing cleaning supplies in every studio.
  • Running air purification machines in each of the six studios.
  • Providing face masks upon request.
  • Providing hand sanitizer at stations throughout the building.
  • Limiting on-site staff to necessary workers only
