COVID-19 Health Guidance

The Dance Studio Alliance has put together the most comprehensive health guidance available for our industry to adapt (as needed). The guidance has been vetted by Medical Professionals including Dr. Iafrate (Head of Dance Medicine at Columbia University). As importantly, they have been constructed by a collection of dance industry professionals who have had the benefit of implementing these guidelines from careful, practical experience rather than in theory.
