Sophie Dance Policy Against Bullying and Racism
Sophie Dance has a zero-tolerance policy for bullying and racism.
We are an environment that holds space exclusively for inspiration, collaboration, kindness, compassion, tolerance, movement and art.
Any incident occurring in the dance studio between clients that is perceived to be racist in nature or as defined below, an act of bullying, will be handled with a two-strike process.
Strike 1 will result in a meeting with both parties to discuss the incident, ensure all sides and feelings are shared, heard and understood and a plan to move forward in tolerance and kindness together in class.
Strike 2: If a second incident involving the same client takes place, the client will be un-enrolled in the dance program and all remaining monies will be returned to the client.
When it is determined that a student, teacher, or staff member has committed a racist act, the person will be provided the opportunity to learn about the impact of their actions prior to the suspension or firing of a team player.
Racism: defined as a system of structuring opportunity and assigning value based on the social interpretation of how one looks (which is what we call “race”), that unfairly disadvantages some individuals and communities, unfairly advantages other individuals and communities, and saps the strength of the whole society through the waste of human resources.
Individual racism: pre-judgment, bias, or discrimination by an individual based on race. This includes both privately held beliefs, conscious and unconscious, and external behaviors and actions towards others
Bullying: seek to harm, intimidate, or coerce (someone perceived as vulnerable)

- We sanitize everything used by staff, parents and campers between each class and during the camp day. This is something we have always done but now clean even more frequently.
