As studio owners, keeping our facility safe is written into our guiding principles. During the Covid pandemic, we have aligned Just Dancing’s operating policies, procedures, and investments with the recommendations of qualified federal, state, and local health experts and officials. In practice, this means we have adhered strictly to U.S. Centers for Disease Control guidelines and St. Louis County Health Department mandates.
Now that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the Covid-19 vaccine, we are taking an additional step to keep our facility as safe as possible for you.
Beginning Monday, Oct. 4 until further notice, we are going to require everyone 12 and older who enters Just Dancing Studio to provide one-time proof of Covid-19 vaccination. With a single exception, no one 12 or older will be able to enter the premises after Oct. 3 without providing this one-time proof. The single exception will be if they have a note from a physician that indicates they cannot get vaccinated for medical reasons. (We still encourage students who are fully vaccinated to show us their completed vaccination card for a one-time discount of $15 off their next lesson, group class, or practice party.)
We are joining other public and private businesses, as well as government agencies, in adding this precaution because an overwhelming majority of physicians, epidemiologists, and scientists believe the only way to end the pandemic is for more people to get vaccinated. We will continue to wear face coverings in the studio as well until further notice.
