Keeping our community safe
Updated July 2023
In an effort to retain a healthy, productive, and supported class environment, Invertigo Dance Theatre prioritizes the following safety practices inside of Dancing Through Parkinson’s (DTP) classes.
In light of the COVID pandemic, continued spikes in the spread of COVID, acknowledging the age of the population we serve, and individual participants’ comfortability and risk, all DTP classes will remain fully masked until further notice.
If necessary, Teaching Artist’s (TA’s) may briefly remove masks to give instruction. TA’s will regularly check in with class participants’ regarding masking. Any changes to this policy will be made in collaboration with the DTP Program Manager and Program’s Director. The TA’s and site teams will continue to let staff know when there is feedback from participants around masking.
If TA’s wish to teach class maskless, they will be required to take a COVID test the night before or day-of and submit negative test results to the DTP Program Manager. Participants will remain masked even if the TA has tested negative and is teaching maskless.
Please be mindful of our DTP community and your own health. If you are experiencing symptoms of any kind and/or become sick, we encourage and expect you to stay home and take care of yourself. Ideally, TAs support the DTP Manager in finding a sub, but if a TA is too sick to do so, the DTP Program Manager will step in to support.
All in all, Invertigo Dance Theatre aims to uphold a safe, healthy environment for all, and we deeply appreciate your commitment to this policy.
