Masking is mandatory. You may wear a surgical paper mask, a surgical mask under a cloth mask, or these approved masks inside NECCA based on best fit: KN95, KF94, N95.
We are monitoring Fall/early Winter flu and COVID season very carefully and anticipate making updates to our mitigation strategies (such as mask optional) in early 2023.
Please review the information below, then pay for and reserve your training time at NECCA. After we have received your payment, you will be emailed a link to fill out your equipment, rigging, and time slot needs. Once you have filled out your form, you will receive a confirmation email with your equipment, rigging, and time slot.
We are happy to be able to provide a disinfected and socially-distanced place to train during this time. Previously we offered open training times we called “Members Only.” Now, because participants must have an assigned space and an appointment, we are calling this training option “Reserved Training.” To be eligible for Reserved Training, you must be pre approved and start with an orientation and pre-pay for your training time. There is a health officer on site at all times for emergencies, but there is no coaching help available during the Reserved Training times. This is recommended for intermediate to advanced students and artists who do not require guidance or someone to oversee their training.
You can join our Facebook group for the most recent updates and information on Reserved Training!
Any reserved training participants must follow all of NECCA’s COVID-19 safety policies in addition to our regular studio safety policies. This requires, among other things: each participant to have a scheduled appointment, provide their own equipment (or have NECCA equipment assigned to them), be willing and able to train while wearing a face mask, and be socially distancing in their lives outside of NECCA.
A full list of required COVID-19 Safety policies are available here.
Cost for the initial reserved training orientation is $20. You only need to do this once, then you are approved to sign up for reserved training times at $20 per 2-hour session.
This calendar is updated weekly and is subject to change at any time.
As a part of our continuation of in-person programming and in alignment with Governor Scott’s Vermont Forward Plan, please remember to follow all of these guidelines for training in the space. We can’t stay open without YOUR help and cooperation in following these rules:
