On behalf of everyone at Northwood Acting Studio, our hearts go out to all those that are impacted by COVID-19 and to those who are on the front lines every day helping to keep us safe. The global spread of this pandemic is affecting every one of us. The safety and health of our community is always of the utmost importance, therefore, we wanted to share an update on how Northwood Acting Studio is responding.

 

As far as we are aware no staff member or student has tested positive for COVID-19 but in accordance with state guidelines our physical doors were closed in March and will remained closed through August 1, 2020.  While we reopened our physical doors because the situation is complex and evolving rapidly, our plans may change. If they do, we’ll let you know.

If you are hesitant to attend live classes we have virtual offerings via Zoom, and you can take advantage of virtual coaching,  or virtual one on ones/career counseling.  We will continue to be a source of training within our community. The industry has slowed right now but things are beginning to pick up and when it comes back it will come roaring back with more opportunities than ever and we want our students to be ready. 

Below you will find our guidelines for our in-person classes and a list of frequently asked questions concerning COVID-19. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions. 

Stay safe!

Temperature Checks

When students arrive for class, a staff member will conduct a quick temperature check using a no-contact thermometer gun. Students with a fever of 100+ will be asked to skip class that day.

Hand-Washing

As students enter the studio, they’ll be directed to wash their hands prior to joining class. We will provide appropriate soaps and hand sanitizers for student and staff use, although students are welcome to bring their own products if they have any special skin needs.

Face Coverings

In accordance with CDC recommendations, we are requiring all students to wear a face covering when not appearing on camera. If you do not have a face covering, we have a limited number of cloth face masks for purchase.

Sanitizing

All  common area surfaces will be sanitized in between classes with  appropriate cleaning sprays in accordance with CDC recommendations.

No Sharing Items

During classes or while waiting for classes to begin, students should not share any materials or equipment. This includes scripts, writing utensils or props.  Please bring any items you may need for class as the studio will not be able to provide them.

Limited Class Size

To make it easier for teachers and students to safely distance during instruction, we are limiting the size of all classes. We will offer multiple classes on the same night with different start times to try and accomodate everyone but  enrollment will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis… so sign up early to save your spot! If a class is full, we will begin a wait list so we can accommodate you should a space open up.

Physical Distancing

The nature of acting classes is such that physical distancing is tricky at times, but please be assured that whenever possible, students will be spaced the recommended six feet apart. We would ask that students not move chairs or designated markings indicating those six foot parameters. 

Strict Sickness Policy

We ask any student who has been feeling under the weather, has had a fever within the past 24 hours, has had contact with or exposure to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, or has tested positive themselves to PLEASE stay home. We will respect your privacy to the fullest extent, and we thank you for your cooperation.
