2020-21 SAFETY GUIDELINES & PROTOCOLS

MASK PROTOCOL UPDATE 11/11/2020:

Due to the current rise in COVID-19 cases across the country and in cooperation with our hotel partners, it has become necessary for us to adjust our mask policy. MASKS WILL NOW BE MANDATORY 100% of the time regardless of distance for all Tremaine Dance events including, but not limited to, CONVENTION CLASSES and COMPETITION PERFORMANCES for the foreseeable future. For the safety of every dancer, faculty and staff member in attendance, there will be NO EXCEPTIONS to this rule. We will keep you updated as guidelines keep changing. *Policy may vary from city to city based on hotel and city/state guidelines.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
We look forward to a time when these safety measures will no longer be necessary.

Sincerely,

Tremaine Dance
