COVID FORMS AND POLICIES

Hello dancers & families! We are very excited to be able to finally bring you an in person dance competition event with our Solo/Duo/Trio Competition! But as you all know, with the current Covid-19 pandemic, some things will be a little different to what we are used to. We ask for your patience, cooperation and understanding as we do our best to meet the local regulations. Below please find the form/questionnaire requirements as well as an outline of our Covid Policies & Procedures. I am sure that if we all work together, we can enjoy a fantastic and safe event where our dancers can finally do what they love!

REQUIRED COVID WAIVER FORMS

Before a dancer or teacher can proceed to the practice & backstage areas, the forms below must be completed, signed & returned by email to admin@northernforcedance.com

 

If these forms are not received prior to the event, they will need to be completed at the venue. If there is a line up at the admissions table, the dancer may risk missing her scheduled performance time. It is therefore highly recommended that this form is returned before the event date.
