Dance Safety Guidelines

The safety of our students, their families, and our staff are a top priority. We have taken this into consideration as we planned our class procedures. The following safety measures are in place:

  • Dancers must come dressed for class as there will not be a changing area available
  • Bring your own water bottle – we do have a water station in the gym where water bottles can be refilled.
  • For our little dancers, parents PLEASE have your dancer go to the bathroom before heading into class. We do have a bathroom in the studio, but all dancers MUST be able to use the bathroom independently. Dancers must be fully potty trained.
  • Drop off procedures:
    • Class arrival and departure will be drop off and pick up only.
    • Please do not arrive more than 5 minutes prior to the start or end of your class.
    • Please have students enter the building from the south side program door (side door nearest the dance studio).
      • Students under 6 must be escorted into the building. Students 6 and older may be dropped off (please PARK rather than stopping in front of the door, to avoid congestion)
    • We highly recommend not congregating in the hallway or front lobby area during your child’s dance class.

Other important information
We will be constantly re-evaluating these policies and procedures in accordance with current regulations an mandates. Our number one priority is being able to get our students back in the studio safely.

PLEASE do not bring your child to class if they have any symptoms of illness (fever, cold or flu like symptoms, runny nose or cough), staff will kindly ask you to bring them home.


The Grayslake Park District’s Expressions Dance Studio is committed to providing high-quality dance classes to enhance the overall development of the child. We provide a safe and child-centered environment to encourage our students to explore dance with qualified, nurturing teachers.

We take our roles as mentors and teachers in your child’s life very seriously. It is our objective to inspire a passion for the art of dance in every child who passes through our doors. In the process, we strive to set the right example and help your child (and you) create memories that will last a lifetime.
