Emergency Preparedness: Guide to Recovery and Reopening
    

A Quick Guide for Reopening and Recovery for Dance Companies, Studio/Schools, and Organizations


In these times, the only thing we can be sure of is the uncertainty of moving forward. For the first time, many of us are learning to take things one day at a time. We are confident and hopeful that we will reopen and restart our studio schools, companies, and organizations soon.

The internet is saturated with information, and the Center for Disease Control (CDC), local, state, and federal government continue to input, revise, and add to various guidelines. The amount of materials is overwhelming, and navigating the search for additional funding to stay afloat is also challenging.
