Statue with Mask

COVID-19

Regularly updated based on current information and recommendations published by the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Sport and UGDA.

We can currently welcome dancers under the updated CovidCheck system (vaccinated or recovered).

Let's Stay Safe and Fit Together

There will be no beginners' class starting this trimester due to the unpredictability of the situation. However, newcomers are very welcome to join the more advanced group.

 

With that said, it is a balancing act to respect governmental rules, take reasonable precautions and make sure that people feel safe and comfortable in the class - and in this, priority will be given to the preference of the dancers who have kept on dancing through all the difficulties of the academic year 2020/2021.

On top of the regular hygiene and distancing measures (sneezing/coughing in the fold of the elbowno-touch greetings, frequent cleaning of the hands, not touching the face), we apply further ones and ask for your cooperation.

Our Part

We closely follow the news and apply the recommendations of the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Sport with immediate effect. If they change too quickly for us to update this page, we will always inform you in a message and discuss the changes at the start of the class.

 

Our current rules are:

  • If someone presents any symptoms detailed under 'Your Part', they cannot attend the class 

  • We ask everyone to limit the time spent in the changing room

  • Our studio provides access to water, soap, single-use paper towels, and hand sanitizer

  • The rehearsal room is aired thoroughly before and after the classes (for at least 15 minutes)

  • As long as the weather conditions allow, at least one window is kept constantly open during the class

  • We leave the door open during the class

  • We keep a distance of 2 metres during warm-up and stretching

  • Dancing in couples is optional for those of you who don't come from the same household

  • Many of the dancers prefer putting on a mask and gloves* when dancing with contact and we adjust to the preference of the majority in this regard. On the other hand, we do not rehearse the most intensive dances and regularly stop when dancing in a mask to make sure it is not too demanding.

  • Your instructor will open the doors/windows, manipulate light switches, etc. to avoid that the same surface is touched by several people

  • Contact surfaces are disinfected after each class (ballet bar, door/window handles, light switches, intercom button, music equipment, any chairs in the room, etc.)

  • If we are informed that any of our students/instructors test positive for Covid-19, we immediately contact:

    • the owner of Vedanza Studios

    • VdL

    • the Direction de la Santé (247-65533)

If the rules issued by the Ministries so require, the changing room is entirely closed and dancers are requested to arrive directly in their training clothes.

 

In the case of another lock-down, classes will be continued with an adjusted schedule online or outdoors as soon as the restrictions and the weather conditions allow.

Your Part

  • We love to see you at every class and appreciate your efforts to come even if it's more difficult to arrange so BUT if it is about your health, let's take it seriously. Please contact your doctor, inform us and stay home if you experience at least one of the following symptoms:

    • fever​

    • cough

    • breathing difficulties

    • chest pain

    • loss of smell or taste without any apparent reason

  • ...or at least two of the following symptoms:

    • muscle pain

    • fatigue

    • a cold (nasal congestion or runny nose)

    • sore throat

    • headache

    • loss of apetite

    • watery diarrhoea

  • Please arrive already in your sports/dancewear, if you can, to limit the use of the changing room as much as possible

  • Please avoid touching handles, switches, etc. – your instructor will be there to help with everything

  • Please leave the doors open

  • Please disinfect your hands when entering the rehearsal room

  • Please respect the distance between each other

  • ​Please don't share personal objects (bottle of water, mats, etc.)

 

*Gloves: caution, they might give a false feeling of security and they might risk the contamination of multiple surfaces unless changed regularly. Even if wearing gloves, washing the hands with soap/disinfecting the hands regularly is still important.
