Current COVID-19 Requirements & Studio Protocols:
Current COVID policies:
- All clients must wear masks at all times while inside
- Clients who are sick should stay home
- Students no longer need to bring their own partner to any group classes
- For larger group classes, staff will provide colored wristbands to help students indicate to each other if they are willing to dance with multiple partners
- Red Wristband: Students who bring their own partner for partner classes and DO NOT want to partner swap at any point during the evening will receive red wristbands
- Green Wristband: Students who are comfortable dancing with multiple other students during the class will receive a green wristband
- PLEASE NOTE: We cannot guarantee that students coming to partner classes without a partner will be able to find another student to dance with, depending on whether or not other students in the class are comfortable dancing with multiple partners.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, we are adjusting all of our adult and kids classes with several safety protocols:
• 24 hour advance registration REQUIRED for ALL classes ($5 fee charge for late registration. Please call the studio if registering late to make sure the class is still being offered)
• HEPA filters, max ventilation, and open windows/doors
• Socially distanced classes
• Masks required indoors for all classes (Please bring your own mask)
• All high-use areas & equipment sterilized daily
Please note that pre-registration for courses is still required. A $5 fee will be applied to late registrations.
We reserve the right to cancel the class if we don’t have enough students in attendance.
Student, Client, Staff, Subcontractor, Volunteer, and Member Conduct:
❧ Students, clients, staff, subcontractors, volunteers, and members are expected to support one another with respect, encouragement, constructive feedback, and positive attitudes.
❧ Students, clients, staff, subcontractors, volunteers, and members are expected to make the safety of themselves and those around them their first priority. This includes the person they are dancing with. Safety guidelines are set forth by the instructors at lessons/workshops, and/or the members in charge of an event.
❧ Students are expected to place themselves in classes that are appropriate for their skill level. If you don’t know which level is appropriate, ask one of the instructors. Students may be asked to defer in taking specific class levels until they demonstrate the appropriate prerequisite skills.
❧ Even when dancing socially, all members, students, clients, and staff are expected to be respectful and conscientious to all dancers in the community. We are about inclusivity, not exclusivity.
Group Lesson Placement:
The instructors at Los Sabrosos pride themselves on the courses that they teach. The skills, techniques, and moves are not necessarily taught in the same manner or order as other dance studios because we create and adapt our lessons to serve our students’ needs in a manner that we deem best.
While we offer four week courses, we do not intend for students to judge their skill level simply through attendance. Some students take months just to master a level. That is why we always add new moves into our courses, while constantly polishing the foundational skills and steps. In order to progress, students need to master the primary movements, and demonstrate connection, tension, the balancing of energy, as well as rhythm, fluidity and intentionality.
In order to fully meet the needs of every student, each student must receive instructor consent to participate in the more advanced courses.
Lesson payments are non-refundable, whether for groups, privates, or personal salsa trainer sessions.
Private lesson packages are valid for only one year from the date of purchase.
Group lesson packages are valid for only the current or upcoming month that the package is purchased. No transfers or make-ups.
24 Hour Cancellation Policy for Private Lessons:
We aim to provide our students the highest quality service and pride ourselves on our exceptional team. If you should cancel your reservation less than 24 hours of your scheduled appointment, we not only lose that scheduled appointment, but also the potential business of other clients who may have taken your scheduled reservation time. For this reason we are obligated to compensate our team for their time as well as make up for lost revenue.
The full lesson fee will be charged to you for missed reservations that are rescheduled or canceled less then 24 hours notice.
For private lessons booked through our online scheduler, the date you select is a REQUEST for that date and time, and is not guaranteed. Your lesson is not confirmed until a representative from Los Sabrosos contacts you personally via email or phone.
Los Sabrosos (students, clients, staff, members, and participants) disclaim any liability or loss in connection with the events, classes or dance patterns/routines taught therein. Consult with your physician before starting any dance or exercise routine.
