The studio must have a credit card number on file from each LDS family so that 2nd, 3rd, and costume payments are paid on time.

All LDS students ages five and above will be required to participate in our annual production of The Nutcracker which will be performed in December.

COVID 19 PROTOCOLS for 2021/2022
- Lisa’s Dance Studio is now a drop off/pick up studio only until further notice. If a parent needs to speak to office staff or instructor, please schedule a meeting through Christina or Lisa.
- (Christinadiruzza@gmail.com / firstname.lastname@example.org )
- At entrance of the studio, hand sanitizer will be provided to each student and teacher will confirm it used. We also ask that each dancer bring their own small bottle to use at their convenience.
- All classes will require shoes and/or socks to be used until further notice
- Please bring your own water bottle. The water dispenser will be closed until further notice.
- Masks will be OPTIONAL for all dancers.
- If a dancer becomes ill with COVID-19, the parents will be immediately notified and all dancers and staff will be requested to quarantine. Please keep your child home if they are feeling sick.
These “coronavirus rules” are not comprehensive and may be revised at any time. Once again, health and safety while at the studio is extremely important to us. We expect you, our dancers, our visitors, and staff to abide by the rules and guidelines described above.
As a business, if we determine a dancer is violating these coronavirus rules, we reserve the right to deny entry into the studio.
Please note that while the coronavirus pandemic remains an active threat, we may operate under modified studio hours.
Disclaimer as to Coronavirus-Related Liabilities
In addition to being unprecedented, the coronavirus pandemic remains a highly fluid situation. While the state has permitted some businesses to reopen, including ours, the risks posed by coronavirus remain. While we have taken steps to keep all the dancers safe and healthy while at our studio, unfortunately we cannot guarantee that one of our dancers will not become ill with the coronavirus. This being the case, it's important to know that your choice to return to the studio is at your own risk – you assume all risk and liability associated with coronavirus infection. We are asking all dancers (or parent/guardian on behalf of the dancer) to sign their acknowledgement to a special “coronavirus release” with we will require prior to entering the studio. Of course, we would love seeing all of our dancers as soon as possible. The time away has been difficult, but if you are not comfortable returning to the studio right now, or you are concerned about exposure to the coronavirus, the best practice would be to remain at home and take the classes via Zoom.
- ALL PARENTS MUST SIGN A WAIVER BEFORE THEIR CHILD MAY ENTER THE DANCE STUDIO
