Children need to be social, physical, and engaged creatively. The pandemic has impacted our children deeply and we are committed to helping you give your child their best childhood, even in the face of these unprecedented times.
Lake Shore Dance has reopened and setting high standards in all of our facilities to ensure security and safety for all studio members at the studio.
Our plan has been incredibly successful with relatively low cases of illness, Covid and non-Covid illnesses combined. Your child's health and wellness are the most important facet of their development and we are here to help you facilitate their growth. We create a safe and secure atmosphere for your child to interact socially, explore their creativity, and stay physically fit.
At the studio, you can expect: - Frequent cleaning of dance spaces, props and classroom essentials, and lobby space. - Contact- free or limited contact instruction while maintaining attention to proper execution. - Adherence to the masking mandate orders by our team. Students under the age of 5 are not mandated to wear masks; we request that students over 5 years old wear masks in line with the mandate so that we can stay open. Please read the disclosures below regarding masking. - Hand sanitizing stations. Please sanitize your hands and your child's hands upon arriving at and exiting the facility. - Distancing in the classrooms and lobbies. "Dancing Boxes" and distancing markings are in each studio space. Remind your child not to share food or drinks and to keep our hands to ourselves. - Virtual customer care hours with the option for in person appointments. - Minimizing groups of people in the hallways by staggering class times, restricting the authorized personnel in the facility, having students bring their supplies into class with them, and reducing downtime and studio changes for our students and faculty. - Substitute teacher arrangements in place to ensure continuity of your child's class in the event of teacher illness. - Expectation that anyone with high fevers and illness symptoms stay home until they are well, including our employees. But at the same time, we are here to make your child comfortable and confident! With that goal, you can also expect: - Age appropriate children's class sizes with excellent student/teacher ratios - Individualized attention and corrections - Warm, positive teachers and staff - A focus on personal growth and dance excellence
You can register with confidence knowing we are looking out for the both the physical AND emotional well-being of your child.
