COVID-19 Warning

​We have taken enhanced health and safety measures—for you, our other participants, and my family. You must follow all posted and verbal instructions while visiting Brenda's Belly Dancing.

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and participants with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.

By visiting Brenda's Belly Dancing you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

Help keep each other healthy.

Brenda's Belly Dancing


We’ve increased cleaning and disinfection in high-traffic areas in the entryway: chair backs, tile floor and door handles, as well as in the main studio: gym mat flooring, radio and stand.

Additionally, Brenda's Belly Dancing will have hand sanitizer available for use, along with a box of disposable masks* for those without (*while supplies last).

Face Coverings must...

  • Fully cover an individual’s nose and mouth and allow the participant to remain hands-free
  • Fit snugly, but comfortably against the side of the face
  • Be secured with ties or ear loops
  • Be made of breathable material, either disposable or reusable

(Costume masks are not considered appropriate)

High-five in the air!

As we implement physical distancing guidelines based on recommendations from health authorities and government officials, we are drastically limiting the number of participants allowed to enter. It is recommended to maintain a distance of 6 feet or more between individuals. 

Once in your spot, stay in the designated area unless directed otherwise. You may stretch or sit down if waiting for class to start or at the end of class while waiting for your turn to leave.Try to stay centered in your square, or away from others as much as possible. It will take a few extra minutes for everyone to visit the safety station upon entry and to pick up personal belongings upon exit. 

Show patience with each other and respect social distance guidelines.


  • Stay 6 feet apart while waiting to use safety station.
  • Use the touch-less hand sanitizer dispenser to sanitize hands.
  • Put on and adjust face mask before entering.
  • Upon entry, place personal items under a single chair.
  • Follow the center gray gym mats, filling in designated spots in order of their number as shown on “Brenda’s Belly Dance Studio, Covid-19 Safety Layout.”*

Know Before You Go

May 2021 update - No masks required. "Michigan has lifted all mask requirements and is now allowing everyone, regardless of vaccination status, to go mask-free in indoor spaces." Face masks and sanitizer will no longer be provided by Brenda's Belly Dancing. You are responsible for bringing your own health and safety supplies. Temperature screenings will not be available. If you feel sick or are running a fever please do not attend until you are fully recovered.


As I move forward with phased reopening, I am eager to have in-person classes indoors when the weather gets chilly in the fall. Participants' safety and well-being is at the forefront of my planning efforts. As we navigate through this unprecedented time, please follow new safety measures based on guidance from health authorities, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and appropriate government agencies. Here are some changes, which may evolve as new information and guidelines are released: 

  • Temperature screenings prior to entry on an "as needed" basis.
  • Face coverings required for participants unless unable to medically do so. 
  • Hand sanitation required upon entry, with either the supplied sanitizer or you may bring your own sanitizing alternative. 
  • Physical distancing practices including physically-distanced queues
  • Temporary operation modifications, including limitation to one shopper at a time in the hallway of the sale table.
  • An increased focus on disinfecting and sanitation, including the addition of a "safety" station at the entrance.
