The Rhythm Room’s Covid Safety Plan

Important Student Covid Agreement 
Students attending in person, must read and agree to the terms of this document


Dear Dancers,

As of last Tuesday Nov 24th,  we were lead to believe we would have some guidelines to review by November 30th and as long as we were able to adapt to them, we would be able to operate.  As of Friday afternoon, Dr. Bonnie Henry announced that those plans would now be delayed into the end of next week.  No further clarification.  In the best interest of all our dancers, instructors and admin, rather than shifting back and forth (who knows how many more times), we have decided to move forward with the following schedule.  We are happy we have such great options to offer you.  We’ve become pretty good at that ZOOM thing and the bonus?  We have a great library of recorded classes to supplement.  Also in the works, our community of super talented friends are coming to the rescue, helping offer a few bonus opportunities to keep everyone’s spirits up. (stay tuned for more info) 



Dear Dancers,

As per the restrictions set out yesterday by our Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry, The Rhythm Room is temporarily closed for 2 weeks.

At this time, we have submitted our Covid Safety Plan for review by a Vancouver Coastal Health Medical Health Officer and we understand there may be a delay while they work out how they will be addressing these submissions. We may be back up and running in a few days, or it may be the full two weeks, we don't know. But we promise to keep you updated every step of the way.

Until we receive the go ahead, see below. We have worked out a great substitute to keep you all dancing.



Those who have committed and registered for classes for this current term will receive access to our amazing library of 70+ recorded classes with:
        Meghan Anderssen
        Jennifer Bishop
        Chantel Genio
        Graeme Kitagawa
        Kristina Linden

These videos were recorded from April through June and include a wealth of tap exercises, drills and combos. Rhythm Room fans who danced with us through last spring may have attended these classes before, but now we are re-opening the vault so that you can access content anytime during the shutdown, play, pause and repeat. It's like picking the brains of the Rhythm Room staff, at your leisure.

In addition, you will have 3 great livestream opportunities.  You can participate in any or all.  Regardless of your level you already been added to the live-stream to participate in or watch any of the classes:

Mon Nov 9  6:30pm: Adv Beg w/Jennifer Bishop

Wed Nov 11 7:00pm:  Int-Adv w/Alesia DiCicco

Sat Nov 14 10:30am: Fast Adv Beg w/Graeme Kitagawa

An email with tips on how to access these classes and your video library will be in your inbox shortly (you must have an account with us to receive this info.  Don’t have one?  No problem, head over HERE to create one)



You are invited to drop in to our three livestream classes listed above. 

Drop in:  only $10 inc gst or one punch from your punch card.  

***And if you're a total keener and want to jump in and have access to our full video library mentioned above? 
You can pay to upgrade yourself by the week and enjoy all of those videos. 
COST: $50 + GST/week or 3 punches from your punch card.

Thank you for your understanding and patience while we work to get you back in class.

November 7th Update


Under the advise of Bonnie Henry, The Rhythm Room is currently in the process of submitting our Covid Safety Protocol for review and approval.  As things can change daily,  please follow us on FACEBOOK HERE for up to the hour information, check your email and check back here for the latest.

We hope to have more details for you soon.  Until we receive approval from a Medical Health Officer from Vancouver Coastal Health, we will plan to deliver our regular, weekly scheduled classes via our great, new livestream set up.  

November 6th Update

With increasing Covid 19 case numbers here in BC, we are revising our mask policy at The Rhythm Room to be more in line with the recent advice of our provincial health officials. 

For the health and safety of our students and instructors, our mask policy is as follows: 

1) Please wear a mask entering and exiting the studio, in the hallway and common areas

2) It is now expected and recommended that students wear a mask while participating in classes.  If you experience dizziness, fatigue, discomfort or shortness of breath while wearing your mask in class, please use your own judgement to adjust or remove it for your own health and safety. 

Thank you for your continued support and understanding and let’s keep dancing!
