2022 Red Rock Dance Festival Safety Protocols

Revised  May 28th, 2021

Subject to change in accordance with DSU and State guidelines at the time of the festival.  


At the Red Rock Dance Festival, our mission is to maintain a collaborative, safe environment that promotes growth and discovery through the art of dance. 


The Red Rock Dance Festival will be following the current (low-risk category) COVID safety guidelines suggested by the CDC, the Utah Public Health Guidelines, and the Dixie State University Guidelines during our festival. We ask for festival participants’ responsible and respectful cooperation with the following, revised safety protocols.


  1. DSU is a mask-friendly campus where masks are appreciated and welcomed, but not mandated. Therefore we will not be regulating the use of masks at our festival. (*see DSU policy below)

  2. All participants will have their temperature taken and symptom check questions asked at the beginning of each day of classes. If someone is found to have symptoms or a temperature they will not be allowed to participate in the festival that day.

  3. Dancers and teachers must use hand sanitizer before and after classes in the studios and before entering and exiting performance spaces. Street shoes will be removed before entering the studio.

  4. Dance floors and barres will be sanitized between each workshop class. 

  5. Class capacities will not be limited by previous social distance requirements.

  6. Audience capacity is not limited, but masks are encouraged.


*DSU policy as of 5/14/2021:

Now that Utah has reached the COVID-19 reduction goals of Utah House Bill 294 and all state COVID-19 health orders have been canceled, there are no longer mandates limiting the gathering of individuals or requiring social distancing on campus. However, Dixie State University is a mask-friendly campus, where masks are appreciated and welcomed but not mandated. 


If the participant exhibits a temperature of 100.4 or more, they will be asked to go get a rapid test or withdraw from participating. In such a case a prorated refund will be given. If anyone has been participating and tests positive, those who have been in the same classes will be notified and encouraged to watch for symptoms and get tested if desired.
