COVID-19 & Campus Policies (Fall 2022—subject to change)

The best way to protect our community from the spread of COVID-19 is to get vaccinated against COVID-19. We strongly recommend all conference attendees get vaccinated and receive their booster shots. The COVID-19 vaccine is the single most effective way to protect against the spread of COVID-19.

Public spaces in the Conservatory (libraries, hallways, lobbies, etc.) are mask optional.

Private lessons, rehearsals with accompanists, solo performances and individual practice are also mask optional. All group singing in classes and ensembles will remain masked, preferably with N95, KF94 or KN95 masks.

While masks are not required indoors in most situations, any community member is welcome to wear a mask.

Hand sanitizing stations are abundant within the Conservatory and should be used frequently.

The Conservatory will continue using HEPA air cleaners, bipolar ionization cleaning (through both the HVAC system and portable units), and elevated HVAC air exchange and filtration rates.

Please refrain from eating or drinking in classrooms or rehearsal spaces, with the exception of water.

Participants are not permitted to make their own recordings of sessions without written permission from the instructor.

Refund requests must be submitted in writing to conference@dalcrozeusa.org by January 9, 2023.

Refunds will be assessed a $40 processing fee.

Note: If the conference is cancelled by the DSA or by the site host, full refunds will be issued.
