SAFETY PROTOCOLS & EVENT SCHEDULE

VIP is committed to the safety & well-being of our customers, spectators & staff. Our top priority is to provide an exciting & high quality event while adhering to location specific COVID-19 guidelines through the following protocols. 

GROUP SIZE & SOCIAL DISTANCING
- Studio block scheduling is being utilized in an effort to limit interaction.
- Each dancer is limited to up to 2 GUESTS in the building (2 guardians OR 1 guardian / 1 sibling).
- Other guests are not able to join the audience this season due to crowd size limitations currently enforced in this area.
- A livestream of our event & awards ceremonies will be available for those unable to attend.
- No parents, dancers, or teachers may attend during any block other than their own.
- Six foot social distancing will be required at all times including in the lobby, audience, dressing rooms, etc.
- Only active performers & adult teachers will be permitted backstage.

MASKS
- UPDATE 2-17-21 from UNF FINE ARTS CENTER: Masks will be required at all times, INCLUDING while performing on stage with the exception of solo routines.
- No scoring deductions will be taken as a result of costume modifications, any desired PPE, etc.

ARRIVAL
- Dancers are allowed to enter 30 minutes prior to the start of their first scheduled routine.
- Teachers are to check in with VIP staff before any items are placed in the dressing space by parents or dancers.
- All performers should arrive in costume for their first routine to limit dressing room usage.

DRESSING AREAS
- Only 1 guardian per family is permitted in the dressing area.
- No congregating in dressing areas.
- All items must be removed from the dressing area immediately following your last routine as the space needs to be sanitized for the next arriving studio.
- Dressing areas are to be completely cleared before adjudicated awards begin. Remaining items may be removed by VIP or venue staff during award ceremonies in order for cleaning to begin. 

AWARDS
- Adjudicated and Special Awards are presented at the end of each block. Up to 20 dancer representatives per studio are allowed on stage for the studio block awards.
- All high scores will be announced at the end of the event via livestream. Teachers are welcome & encouraged to attend our High Score Awards Ceremony (at the end of the event) with a total of up to 10 studio representatives.
