We have not had a single covid transmission at Bella Ballet since being open in September and we intend to keep it that way. In addition to temperature checks at the door and masks worn at all times, Bella Ballet takes the safety of our children and staff seriously. The studio is industrially cleaned in between each session as well as cleaned and sanitized consistently during the day. 

Bella Ballet’s cleaning protocol consists of the following:

Hospital-grade cleaning products and sanitation throughout camp 

Bleach of bathroom after each use 

Steam cleaned floors after each session

Alcohol fogging sanitation daily on surfaces and in the air after each session and at the end of the day when children are not present. 

Masks worn at all times except for during lunch time and snack time. 

Snacks & Lunches will be strategically eaten outside in our “Princess Alcove” with children socially distant to allow them the opportunity to eat without masks for safety and fresh air for the kids

Two industrial air purifying systems are on constantly with UV light at all times during camp hours. 

Kid-safe germ fighting essential oils are diffused throughout camp which not only provides relaxation but to assist with out other germ fighting protocols.

Where are you located?

We are located in the Kentlands at 347 Kentlands Blvd, Giathersburg MD 20878. We are next to Alliage Salon and Giuseppe’s Pizza.

What is the Pick Up Process for Camp?

When camp is finished, please come to the studio door. We will dismiss each child after they have had hand sanitizer. We will look at your parent pass and make sure it matches your child’s pass and you are good to go!

What should my child wear to camp?

We want your child to be comfortable. We do encourage ballet attire, such as leotards and ballet shoes. However, if you do not have these items, no worries! Whatever t-shirt/shorts combo or fun dress your child wants to wear is always welcome. If you do not have dance shoes, please make sure to send your child with a pair of slippers or shoes to be worn inside only as outdoor shoes, socks, and bare feet are not permitted during covid times.

Tights are not required for summer camps. Your child is more than welcome to wear a grandiose tutu if she wants. The bigger the better is a-okay at Bella Ballet! 

Does my child need lunch/snacks each day?

We provide all the arts, crafts, activities and fun for the week! “Princess Snacks” for our young campers and “Diva Snacks”  and beverages are included for AM, PM, and Full Day Campers. 

If your child is attending camp Full Day Camp you will need to provide a packed lunch daily for your child except on Friday. 

We ask for lunches to be packed in an insulated lunch box with their name on it with ice packs to ensure freshness. We have limited fridge space and no microwave access so please plan accordingly. 

Friday’s will be our pizza party! We will be providing cheese pizza for students and no packed lunch is needed that day.

Are there any additional fees?

No! There is no registration fee or costume fee for summer camps.

Is my child required to wear a mask?

Yes! Masks are required for ALL campers and staff throughout the duration of camp. During lunch time and snack time, masks are removed. Snacks & Lunches will be strategically eaten outside in our “Princess Alcove” with children socially distant to allow them the opportunity to eat without masks for safety and get some fresh air.

Masks are required during drop off and pick daily while near the studio doors.

When will I receive information specific to my child’s camp?

Summer Camp Welcome Packets are emailed the Wednesday before your child’s camp. We are always around to help so please feel free to email us at info@bellaballetdance.com and we would be happy to assist you with any question you may have! 

Are there covid-waivers required for each family to sign?

Yes! Each morning, we will automatically and electronically send out a covid waiver to each camp family to sign digitally. This waiver states that your child is not showing any signs of illness including congestion, cough, and fever. We have not had a single covid transmission at Bella Ballet since being open in September and we intend to keep it that way.

What if my child is sick?

If your child is sick and unable to come to camp we will work with you! You can explore our award-winning and engaging virtual camps for that week or transfer you to another week once your child is symptom free for 10 days. 

What is the Drop Off Process for Camp?

When you arrive at Bella Ballet, we ask that you come to the lobby door entrance on the Booth street side (side closest to Guiseppes) with your child no more than 10 minutes prior to your child’s camp start time. You will see a large pink tent with your dedicated Bella Ballet team member, and our full Bella Ballet decor and signage. You are welcome to wait outside in our “Princess Alcove” or in your car until camp begins.  Masks must be worn at all times in the alcove in front of the studio by parents and children.

A Bella Ballet team member will take each child’s temperature through our contactless thermometer. If their temperature is below 99.5 degrees Fahrenheit, they will then be escorted with a Bella Ballet team member through the lobby doors and provided hand sanitizer. All children must use hand sanitizer upon arrival. After hand sanitizer is administered through our contactless system, your child will then be escorted to her designated dance area. Each child will have their very own “empowerment area” that is safe and socially distant for them to express themselves! 

Upon arrival, we will make sure parents are all set with our Bella Ballet security software. We will send more information in our welcome packet prior to camp to ensure a speedy drop off process. This software allows children to check-in for camp at our check-in station outside and provides a receipt for the parent. You must show this receipt in order to pick up your child. We suggest that you take a picture of it for camp pick up. 

Please note: If another family member is picking up your child that day, they must have a picture of that pass. You are welcome to text it to them. Additionally, please inform our staff if anyone other than you will be picking up your child and the name of that person so we can confirm their identity with a photo id and the pass you sent to them.

Is there anything else I need to provide for my child?

Extra set of clothes in a ziplock bag with your child’s first and last name 

Extra masks 

Water bottle 

Full day campers, please provide extra masks for each day so children can switch them out throughout the day

What if my child has a food allergy?

 If your child has any food allergy, please let us know upon registration so we can make arrangements for alternate snacks and Friday lunch. We will confirm the alternate snack and/or lunch prior to camp to ensure your child has a safe alternative.

When will camp fees be processed?

We will process all June camps on June 1st, all July camps on July 1st and all August camps on August 1st to the card placed on file during registration.

Are camps refundable?

Camps are non-refundable but are transferable from week to week. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us directly and we will be happy to help the best we can.

Do you offer any discounts?

Our early-bird discount is available through March 1st. The early bird discount is $15 off half day of camp and $25 off of full day of camp. Use the code “early-bird” when registering. This discount will be manually applied before processing your camp fees.
