How has Core Dance adapted with COVID-19?
Core Dance recognizes the unique challenges that COVID-19 creates for any business that relies on performance and gathering community. We have spent the last 5 months learning and planning new approaches to sharing our work and our commitment to social advocacy and community building. Like most performing arts organizations, we recognize the need for human face to face interaction. Dance USA and various other organizations have found ways to gather small groups for performances and create concurrent, interactive, virtual experiences. We are using all this learning in our Lunchtime in the Studio programming. On the event date, the process will be filmed to be edited and shared afterwards. For in-person attendees, Core Dance has created strict limits and guidelines. Whereas normally 40-50 people would attend in one studio space, now we will use both of our spaces with a maximum number of five attendees in each studio. This will allow for well over six feet of social distancing. The presenting Dance Artists will start in one studio and move to the next, eliminating the need for attendees to move through the space. Attendees will pick up their lunches on exiting the event.
With the safety of our artists and community members of the utmost importance, Core Dance has taken multiple measures to make the facility safe including:
All Core Dance visitors, staff, and volunteers are required to wear a mask at all times.
All Core Dance visitors, staff, and volunteers are required to follow health guidelines on social distancing, maintaining at least 6 feet apart. Dance USA suggests 10 feet and that is our goal most of the time.
Sanitation stations are set up in both studios, hosting a variety of cleaning products such as: alcohol solution for the floor, disinfecting wipes, and hand sanitizer.
Each time the studio is used, sanitation protocols are administered, including wiping down surfaces, and mopping the floors with an alcohol solution. Afterwards, a fogger is used to ensure disinfection solutions have the maximum contact with all surfaces.
Air purifiers are installed in both studios with three-stage purification filtration systems. The air purifiers run overnight in each studio.
