North Coast Dance reopens just in time for the summer


EUREKA, Calif. (KIEM)- Dancers at North Coast Dance can once again lace up their dancing shoes. The dance studio reopened their doors this week. Although the studio looks much different than ever before.

This is a soft opening for the dance studio. Currently only 25 students are allowed back to the studio for dance sessions. Instead of dancing around the studio like before, taped squares are set up for the dancers to stay in and social distance.

Some dancing instructors are back in studio teaching lessons, while some are still teaching dance through digital platforms like zoom and live stream.

As for sanitary precautions, staff are making sure to keep the dancers safe. Health screening questions are asked as soon as someone steps foot in the door, and temperature checks are mandatory. Touched surfaces are also cleaned between classes.

Managing Director for North Coast Dance Eliza Klinger says the dance studio is open to feedback from their current students to see how the new process is going.
