FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
POSSIBLE COVID-19 EXPOSURE
We recently became aware that one of our clients has tested positive for COVID-19 on October 1, 2020. It is unclear to where they contracted the virus, but there is the possibility that they were asymptomatically positive when at iDance Mt Pleasant.
While the risk is small, and we’ve implemented physical distancing and enhanced cleaning practices, there is a chance you could have been exposed to the virus.
Possible exposure took place on September 29th, 2020 during our 5:15PM class at our Mt Pleasant location. We have already contacted those who were in direct contact with the positive client.
We urge you to closely monitor your health. If you feel any symptoms please get tested and isolate while you wait for the results (see link below).
Your health and safety is our first priority and we are committed to following the safety measures laid out by WorkSafeBC, and the Ministry of Health.

I AM A BEGINNER DANCER, CAN I TAKE CLASS?
Our classes are beginner-friendly. Most of our students have little or no dance experience and our classes are designed with this in mind.
HOW ARE THE CLASSES STRUCTURED?
All of the classes start with some kind of warm-up exercises. For example, in ballet, you start at the barre. After the warm-up, you work on short combinations of steps and moves and finally, a choreographed combination that changes week to week.
WHAT IF I CAN’T DO EVERYTHING IN CLASS?
We give you a blueprint of movement and are happy for you to make it your own based on what you’re comfortable with. Our instructors can also provide alternative options if you have an injury. We're not here for competition or performance, it's all about feeling good and we're here to help you get there.
WHAT SHOULD I *NOT* BRING?
Valuables. Although the studio is well-monitored, things can go missing. You're welcome to take things into the studio with you, but make sure they're out of the way and not a tripping hazard. iDance Vancouver is not responsible for loss or theft of personal property.
IS THERE PARKING?
At our Mt Pleasant location, there is metered parking on Broadway or free parking on 8th Street and surrounding side streets. Our Kitsilano location has ample free 60-minute parking, and tons of street parking.
