AIBF Meets the Challenges of COVID-19

AIBF - the "A" is for adapt!! 

 

AIBF has encountered many challenges over the past 42 years, but none quite like the challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic has presented in 2020.  We are so proud of our administration, maestros, families and dancers for coming together during these times to adapt and find creative ways to continue our mission and doing what we love to do most - teaching and learning ballet folklorico!  

While we continue monitoring the evolving COVID-19 situation in Houston, AIBF made the decision in November 2020 to move its weekly practices for now from our outside plaza location to indoors at MECA East End (formerly Talento Blingue de Houston).   

 

AIBF continues to follow strict COVID-19 guidelines and has adopted strict policies that all maestros, dancers and family members are required to adhere to.  Well-fitted face masks (no neck gaiters) that cover both the nose and mouth must be worn at all times by our dancers.  AIBF staff ensures that common surfaces such as door handles are sanitized before practices.  All AIBF dancers and staff must hand sanitize before walking into practice after checking in at the front desk where temperatures are taken by MECA East End staff.  Class sizes are capped to ensure adequate social distancing and at minimum, one medical grade air purifier is continously running inside both practice spaces during all practices.  

 

The health and safety of our dancers and families is our number one priority and will continue to be as we navigate these uncertain times with our city and country.  AIBF is committed to basing all decisions and changes to our practices and policies on the scientifically based recommendations from local, state and national health officials and authorities.
