● Considerations for dancers wearing masks
○ A mask will make it harder to breathe during exercise initially and dancers should self-monitor
for symptoms of: lightheadedness, dizziness, numbness or tingling, and shortness of breath
○ Monitor the intensity of your class/workout as you get used to wearing a mask during exercise
■ Your body will adapt over a few weeks to wearing a mask
○ If you start to feel dizzy, imbalanced, or over fatigued stop your activity and rest
○ Do your best not to remove your mask during class or rehearsal. If you do need to remove your
mask, dispose of single use masks in the trash or place a reusable mask into its own sealable bag, wash your hands and/or use an alcohol based hand sanitizer letting it dry for 30 seconds and then replace it with a clean one.
○ Dancers may require multiple masks to get through the day
○ If your mask becomes saturated with moisture from breathing or sweat you need to change
into a dry mask.
■ A wet mask is less efficient at filtering bacteria and viruses
○ Masks should only be worn once and then replaced with a fresh mask.
○ All reusable masks should be cleaned ideally in a washer with hot water and soap and then
dried in a dryer prior to next use. Ironing on the highest setting can also disinfect after washing
○ There are now multiple commercial reusable mask options available for use during
