Semester Health Protocols


Current Protocols

Live classes may convert to virtual should state and local health protocols require.

The health and safety of our students and teachers is at the forefront of our policy decisions.We are in regular contact with the Town of New Canaan and will follow their and the CDC’s guidelines as we look forward to a safe and healthy semester. Please let us know as we walk this next path if you have any concerns.  Our goal is to have a great experience!

For all Private lessons and Group classes:
Before each class, we take the temperature of your student and ask them to wash their hands. If their temperature is above 100.4 or if the student is not feeling well, we will contact you to take your student home.   Hand sanitizer is available and all public areas will be sanitized between classes.

Group Classes:
Our musical theatre/acting classes will have up to 8 students and up to 10 students for the extended middle school production.  Our dance classes will have up to 8 students.

Inside:
Face coverings are required and students will be properly distanced in music theatre, acting and dance class.
There will be a final performance with family audience requiring masks and socially distancing.

If a student in the class becomes ill with corona virus, the class will become virtual. If a student in the class has a student in their class at school that is tested positive for coronavirus, that student will need to quarantine from class.  We will make every effort to do virtual learning for that one student to keep them up with the class.
Parents should remain outside the Conservatory for drop off and pick up.

Outside:
In the spring, (should weather permit) we may hold some group classes outside in Mead Park. If so, we will notify you. Please drop off on the corner of Richmond Hill Rd and Grove Street for outside classes. While outdoors students are not required to wear face coverings, they will maintain protocol social distancing.

Private Students:
We will be using three large spaces at the Conservatory. All spaces will have plexiglass shields for teachers and students and a minimum of 12 feet from the teacher.
