Below you will find important information and protocol for all upcoming sessions.
Please ensure to read all information prior to scheduling a session. (updated 8/29/21)
Policies & Protocol:Reservations are required for all sessions.
24 hours notice is required for all session cancellations.
Please only bring exact items needed for your lesson. Preferably come ready to go, as with the schedule blocks to allow for proper cleaning and sanitation, anytime changing/bathroom breaks will cut into your lesson time. If a Semi Private, you must be ready to begin when the warm up begins, or you will not be permitted into the session.
Only closed bottles of water are allowed. No open beverages at all, including coffee mugs, travel mugs, dunkin cups, water bottles with straws etc.
Bottles of water are available in studio for $1.00
If you are sick with any type of symptoms (including allergies), have been in direct contact with someone that is sick with a contagious illness/virus, have a fever within 72 hours of your session, you must cancel your appointment.
MCDF Mask Policy, Due to the increase of covid 19 cases within the city, per the board of health advisory in Fall River, all students & staff must wear a mask regardless of vaccination status during indoor sessions. If you have any questions or concerns regarding masks, definitely reach out. I will ensure all cleaning protocols are maintained, and we will continue to operate on a Semi Private/Private 1:1 structure, to assist with keeping our studio covid free. I know this may annoy some, but please understand I did not personally create this policy, and am following the guidance of our local health department to ensure our studio remains open. Thank you for understanding.
Hand washing is still required prior to entering the studio. We will also continue with the Semi Private and Private 1:1 structure, as progress has been phenomenal. MCDF will also keep our cleaning system in place, as it seemed to serve us well since reopening last year.
If anyone has any questions or concerns, please contact MCDFPole@gmail.com
No one is allowed to bring a guest/children to wait for them. I do not have a waiting area in this studio and can not have anyone waiting in the unit or hallways.
We are counting on all members, package holders and participants to work with us to ensure our studio is able to remain open, so please, please, please be honest if you’ve been sick or feel sick and do not attend sessions until you are better.
