Dancing Classrooms requires that all employees be fully vaccinated before returning to work on September 13th, 2021, unless a reasonable medical condition or sincerely held religious beliefs prevents them from safe vaccination. Employees that are granted exemption will be required to provide a negative PCR test weekly, wear a mask, and keep a 6-feet social distance during meetings, any in-person events, or activities. Because most of our partners have similar or stricter policies, non-vaccinated teaching artists will only be assigned virtual residencies.

Safety Practices:
All employees, regardless of vaccine status, will be required to wear masks when teaching or visiting DC programs in-person. In addition, all employees, regardless of vaccination status, are required to follow any and all COVID-19 safety policies of the spaces in which classes or meetings are taking place, such as the Department of Education, Riverside Church, etc., including but not limited to presenting proof of COVID-19 vaccination, proof of negative COVID-19 test, social distancing, etc.

Our residencies will practice physical distancing until further notice.
