Dear Raices de Arte Español Families,


Raices is in the process of getting ready to open its doors! Thank you everyone for your patience and loyalty as well as your support during these unprecedented times. We can’t wait to see our returning students and families! We also look forward to meeting anybody who is interested in joining the Raices Studio. The procedures listed below will require everyone’s cooperation to make the re-opening of the Raices Studio a successful and safe environment for everyone.

Here is some important information for all students and parents:

  • If you or anyone in your household has any symptoms such as coughing, sore throat, constant sneezing, fever, headache, body aches, shortness of breath, chills, fatigue, loss of taste or smell, congestion, runny nose, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea, please stay home!

  • Students may bring their own hand sanitizer or use the studio’s; everyone is required to sanitize prior to entering the studio.


All Students:


  • To avoid exposure, please wait in your car until it’s time for your class to start. Adult students please come alone or please have someone drop you off.

  • Please come fully dressed for practice ready to rehearse as changing rooms will be closed for safety.

  • All students must ensure that their hair is pulled back in a bun and will not come down.

  • We ask that all students wear a mask.

  • All personal items need to be kept in dance bag and water bottle must be labeled.

  • There will be chairs inside the dance studio spaced out for each student and their belongings.

  • Dance spots will be marked on the floor with tape to ensure social distancing.

  • Please wait for the dance teacher to come out of the studio to welcome the next class.

  • We need the time to disinfect and let the air circulate.



  • We ask that parents wait in their car for their students (children).

  • No visitors please. 

  • Please be mindful before and after class as you enter and exit the studio...keep the 6 ft apart distance. We only have one entrance and exit, so we will need to take turns entering and leaving the studio.


Steps taken by the studio to keep our students and teachers safe:

  • Disinfecting will take place after every class, time is needed to disinfect and allow the air to circulate

  • Hand sanitizer will be available for students and its use will be required to enter class

  • Taped spots will be clearly marked so the students know where to stand to keep apart for social distancing

  • Limited number of dancers per class: Student-Teacher ratio is 5 students to 1 teacher

  • Dressing room or waiting area will be closed.


                                              Thank you so much for your continued support,

                                                  Raices de Arte Español
