Studio Protocols & Safety Procedures
Kids Classes: In conjunction with the continued guideline for children to remain masked in school, DL Studio will continue to require all students and instructors who are enrolled in our Kids Hip Hop & Breakdancing program to wear masks.
Adults Classes: In accordance with the most recent guidelines issued by the CDC and the State of CT, all vaccinated clients are welcome to take class without a mask. Anyone who has not received the vaccination should continue to wear a mask in class.
Temperature checks will remain in effect for all kids classes.
Kids Classes: Studio capacity will remain as currently set for all kids classes. Class caps will return to 20 moving into the next dance season.
Adult Classes: For the short term, adult class capacity will be capped at 15 people.
Before and after each class at DL Studio, all bathrooms and shared studio surfaces such as door handles are cleaned.
All class equipment and props such as mats, weights, resistance bands, cones and dots are sanitized after each use by DL Staff.
Air Filtration Systems
Inside DL Studio you will find two HEPA Air Purifiers.
- Hathaspace Smart True HEPA Air Purifier 2.0: This Medical Grade HEPA Air Purifier has a powerful 5-stage filtration system completely replacing the air in the studio room every hour, removing over 99% of common air pollutants like pollen, pet dander, mold, dust, bacteria, and viruses. This new filter allows us to view our air quality in real-time with a built-in sensor that continually monitors the air for allergens and PM2.5 particles. A display reveals our air quality as a numerical score (1-500) based on the EPA Air Quality Index. The PM Concentration is the room is between 7 through 9 which puts us in the top tier air quality range of 0-50! We have also joined the Hathaspace Filter Club where new filters are automatically shipped to us every 4 months as recommended and we are in conversations with another air cleaning system supplier whom we also hope to bring into the studio.
- Medify Air MA-112 V2.0 Air Purifier: HEPA Grade Air purifier offer H13 Filters (higher rated than True HEPA) removes 99.9% of particles from the air. This unit cleans up to 3,700 sq ft in one hour, 2,500 sq ft in 30 minutes, 1,250 sq ft in 15 minutes (CADR 950). To put this in perspective, DL Studio is 1,850 sq. ft.
