Dear catapult clients:

Welcome back to Catapult, we missed you!! We first want to say that we know these are uncertain and unprecedented times. As a studio, we want to assure you that we are taking your safety and that of our staff with the utmost seriousness and diligence. We are taking many precautions to ensure that our studio is safe place, and we ask that you partner with us in this effort by reading and agreeing to the following:

Fall Class In-Studio Protocol:

  • All classes will be taking place either in Mavericks (the new name for the upstairs room or Warehouse/Outside. 
  • Every actor’s temperature will be taken upon entering. If anyone is running a slight fever they will be asked to wait to the side and retested after a few minutes.
  • If anyone is running a fever of 100.4 or more, they will be asked to reschedule their appointment for a later date.  
  • Actors (or their parents) will sign a waiver including but not limited to the verbiage, “I have not tested positive or knowingly been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed with Covid-19 in the last 2 weeks. I have not been feeling sick over the last 48 hours” 
  • Parents/guardians will enter the studio with their child to sign the waiver and may chat with the instructor prior to class if absolutely necessary.
  • Social distancing will be implemented where possible, including spacing chairs accordingly. 
  • We will be refraining from personal contact between clients and employees, and, yes, that includes hi-fives and fist bumps. 
  • It will be mandatory for every person who walks through our front door to immediately wash their hands for a minimum of 20 seconds (or sanitize).
  • Ample hand sanitizer will be provided in every room.
  • No audits for the time being, as we are limiting the number of people in the studio.
  • We ask that everyone in the studio common area wear a mask.
  • Students and staff will wear masks in class, with the possible exception of when they are doing scene work or being taped. (NOTE: We will be implementing this for the first few classes, and then reassessing if this is the best option.)
  • Classes taking place outside the covered space will not require mask wearing.
  • As a safety measure, UV Air Purifiers will be placed throughout the studio. 
  • We are installing ionization filtration systems in each of our taping rooms which are specifically designed to reduce airborne virus particles!

Appointment Based Protocol:

  • If you arrive early your appointment, please wait outside or in your car…maybe run over those lines one more time, get a quick meditation, and a staff member will come out to get you when the room is ready.
  • Every actor’s temperature will be taken upon entering. If anyone is running a slight fever they will be asked to wait to the side and retested after a few minutes.
  • If anyone is running a fever of 100.4 or more, they will be asked to reschedule their appointment for a later date.
  • Actors will sign a waiver including but not limited to the verbiage, “I have not tested positive or knowingly been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed with Covid-19 in the last 2 weeks. I have not been feeling sick over the last 48 hours”
  • We will be refraining from personal contact between clients and employees, and, yes, that includes hi-fives and fist bumps.
  • It will be mandatory for every person who walks through our front door to immediately wash their hands for a minimum of 20 seconds (or sanitize).
  • Only those who currently have a session may enter the studio (your entourage will have to wait outside!)
  • Parents/guardians with taping appointments will enter the studio with their child to sign the waiver and chat with the coach prior to the session, and, if absolutely necessary, wait in the lobby during the session. However, we would prefer that you wait in your car until the session is completed.
  • The staff member will then direct you to your taping taping room. You will enter first and head to your mark 6 feet away from the camera, and then have a blast!
  • After the session, the staff member will escort clients to the front door, and we kindly ask that you make your way to your car so we can clean the studio for the next client.
  • As a safety measure, UV Air Purifiers will be placed throughout the studio.
  • We are installing ionization filtration systems in each of our taping rooms which are specifically designed to reduce airborne virus particles!
