Convention and Competition Individual Company Safety Protocols and Policies

 Hello Families,

I am sure you are wondering how Conventions like us can continue to go on.  But rest assured our industry will be back soon enough and may look different than what it was before.  It is up to Hollywood Vibe to re imagine our Convention & Competition weekends while keeping everyone’s health & safety in mind!

While we do not know what the future holds, we can prepare our events with the following protocols in place. We will be prepared to take all measures to create a safe environment.  Probably much safer than a grocery store or a shopping mall!  Hollywood Vibe will now have a designated Health & Safety Supervisor at all events to make sure that all protocols are in place and being executed accordingly.

This past spring and summer has guided us on how we can run our events virtually!  In the event that a city cancels, we will be prepared to offer a Virtual Interactive Convention with Scholarship and Competition Opportunities!  Instead of viewing classes via live stream, we are set up to create an interactive and personal virtual experience!

LIMITED ATTENDANCE- ROOM TO MOVE!

Hollywood Vibe have always worked to give dancers more space than other conventions pre COVID19 by limiting enrollment to insure a better educational experience.

  • We will be working closely with each venue to stay within the guidance on capacity.  Enrollment will be limited so that dancers will be able to maintain 6 ft. of separation.  What once was a full ballroom of dancers, may be 50-75% less amount of dancers.  Ballrooms will be gridded out to give dancers a visualization on their range of movement. Our faculty will be working together to format their classes so that they can respect this range.  Across the floor and standing on sides for groups may not be an option.
  • With limited attendance, we will no longer be able to offer Parent Observers in the Junior, Intermediate, Teen & Senior Ballrooms.  Mini dancers will be limited to 1 studio representative or 1 Parent Only.
  • Dressing Room Areas will be marked out to give each studio room to change.  Studios should limit the amount of parents that are assisting dancers with changing

TEMPERATURE CHECKS

  • Our Health & Safety Supervisor will conduct temperature checks on all staff and faculty each day.
  • We will ask Dance Teachers to conduct temperature checks on each dancer each day turning in the appropriate paperwork with the recorded temperature
  • Any Dancer or Teacher with a temperature of 100.4 or above will be asked not to attend.
  • Any competition observer will also have their temperature checked at the door before entering.

FACE COVERINGS

  • Face coverings will be required for anyone in the pre-function area, watching competition or in ballroom. Dancers will not need to wear face coverings while dancing or on stage performing.
  • All Staff for HV will be required to wear a face covering.

HAND SANITIZERS & MASKS

  • We will set Hand Sanitizers at points of high traffic.  Dancers will be asked to use when entering and exiting every ballroom.  They will also be at merchandise & registration areas.
  • Disposable Masks will also be available for anyone that needs one.
  • We advise that each dancer create their own kit that contains their hand sanitizer, mask, and water bottle!

ONLINE MERCHANDISE PURCHASING

  • To reduce the amount of dancers mingling at merchandise booths.  Merchandise will be available for purchase online and available for pick up at the event!

BACKSTAGE PROTOCOLS

  • Professional Assistants and Runners will report for training sessions with our stage manager on the proper protocols.
  • Dancers will be asked to wait in the dressing rooms until they are called backstage.
  • Once backstage, dancers will be staged to keep their distance from other groups

SANITIZING OF STAGE AND BALLROOMS

  • We will clean and sanitize equipment between each faculty member’s classes
  • We will clean stage during certain periods throughout competition as well as high touch points such as handrails

ELIMINATION OF WATER STATIONS

  • Dancers will be asked to bring their own water bottles clearly marked with their name.

COMPETITION

  • Live streaming of competition will now be available so all who cannot be in attendance or present in the competition ballroom can view
  • Limited Seating and audience will be set to guidelines for social distancing.
  • Contact free awards ceremony.  We will ask for Studios to select representatives to be present on stage to receive the recognition. More frequent award ceremonies will take place to reduce the number of dancers on the stage.

CLASS SCHEDULING, FACULTY SHOW, & SCHOLARSHIP PRESENTATIONS

  • We will no longer be able to hold one large faculty introduction to reduce the crowding before the event begins
  • Class Scheduling will be tiered so start and end times will vary.  Thus reducing the amount of dancers who will be entering/exiting ballrooms and pre-function areas.
  • A new way of awarding final scholarships will be coming soon!  This again will reduce the large crowd for our closing events.

FLU-LIKE SYMPTOMS & HEALTH CERTIFICATION

  • Any attendee that has flu-like symptoms will be asked to not attend the event.
  • All parents will need to certify that to the best of their knowledge, their dancer has been healthy 2 weeks preceding the event and not sick with any symptoms.

HAND WASHING

As the CDC recommends the best way to avoid transmission of the virus, all attendees should wash their hands multiple times throughout the day.

HOTEL & VENUE CLEANLINESS

Each hotel and venue has given us their protocols for safety with increased cleaning of all surfaces, elevators, handrails, and high touch point areas.

We will continue to monitor government policies and public health organizations on their updates and changes.  Along with our plan and everyone’s personal responsibility, we will put forth our best efforts to create a safe and healthy environment for all!

We look forward to dancing with you this season!!

Sincerely,

Hollywood Vibe & Hollywood Dance Jamz

As we prepare to host our world class events, we’ve reinvented the competition experience based on guidance from health authorities and local government agencies.
