We have worked with the MN Health Department to establish the best policy to keep our dancers and TDW staff and families safe. Any dancer who has been directly exposed to someone with a lab confirmed case of COVID19 must self-quarantine for 14 days or until negative test results are received and physician gives a return to sport note. Direct exposure means: Close contact (6’ or less) for 15 minutes or longer, sharing food eating utensils, sharing drinks, embracing, kissing.

TDW teachers will allow any dancer in the above situation of either self-quarantine/no symptoms, quarantine positive COVID19 test asymptomatic (or symptomatic as able), to ZOOM into classes. If you find your dancer in any of these situations, please email Tracy at TDW5678@gmail.com and she will get you connected! Thank you for being diligent about keeping others healthy.
