Jump'n Jig Website Update and Mini Class

Jump'n Jig Ohio has been getting some updates lately. We have created a a new website AND we are offering a Mini Class now that fall sports are winding, it's time to start getting ready for St. Patrick's Day! Learn more here
WIDA US Open - Venue Change

Parkway Baptist Church
8508 Beaver Bridge Road,
Moseley, VA 23120.

The church allows us to still have a large marley covered dance space, more bathrooms and space for an audience to be spread out. They have tents and picnic tables outside, very high ceilings and it gives us more space to be properly distanced.
There are two hotels within 10 minutes of the venue. The Hull Street corridor has tons of places to eat and numerous shopping centers and grocery stores. The church venue is located right by the Richmond Metro Zoo and the farmer’s market.
Extra Practice Sessions
Are you ready for some extra practice sessions? Have you levelled up into some dances? (Congratulations by the way!)

 Studio Rules
Please make sure you and your dancer are aware of these rules.
Studio Rules and Guidelines
  • Parents must drop students off, no waiting in the studio or the studio garden area
  • Enter only through the alley door
  • Exit only through the garden door
  • Students are assigned seats
  • Class sizes are limited to 8 - 10 dancers only
  • Studio is cleaned thoroughly on a weekly basis
  • Studio is disinfected between classes.
  • Students must bring their OWN water bottles. The refrigerator will no longer be open to dancers.
It would be helpful if everyone has their own hand sanitizer with them. We will have lots of  hand washing breaks and hand sanitizing breaks.  I will have hand sanitizer available, but I am going to ask that kids bring their own as well.

Team Dances
I don't really plan on working on team dances right off the bat, but If we do team dances at all , it will be without hands. I have some ideas for choreography in my head that are "handless" group dances as well.

If group dances withou hands becomes impossible, I do have a batch of disposable plastic gloves we can use. I generally pass the hand sanitizer around right after group dances even before the virus impact and will be certain to do that now when we are working on groups.

Are you sick?
I think in general our families are very good about not bringing the kids to the studios when they are sick., but to be clear, you dancer must be fever free for 2 days and not exhibiting any symptoms. I certainly will call parents if their kids are looking sick while at the studio. I will ask the dancer to wait in the kitchen until their parents come to get them
