COVID-19 Action Plan

Safe Summer COVID-19 Action Plan
As the Coronavirus pandemic evolves, we will keep you updated on this page about our plan of action.

We realize that there are many opinions on what is necessary for community and personal safety. As an organization, we feel it is our responsibility to be as cautious as possible while providing this opportunity to those who wish to participate. 


Safe Summer At Pure Dance Works

Based on the Back On Track plan currently being rolled out for Indiana, we plan to hold our summer courses in the studio.

Some class times and camp dates have been adjusted from their original times; please see the Classes page for schedule details. 

Please watch this short video from Tiina Hazelett, CEO of Pure Dance Works for an overview of our policies and proceedures:


While we cannot guarantee to stop the spread of any infection, we will take precautions to minimize the spread of germs. This includes:

  • Capping each class at 8-10 students depending on the room size
  • Marking social distancing spaces in the studios
  • No contact classes; no holding hands or physical corrections
  • Only allowing students and staff in the building
  • Parents of new students will be invited into the building at our front door to drop their child off at the dance room door and then exit through the back door
  • Students will be dismissed via the exterior classroom doors, which are clearly marked. Students will not be sent outside without a parent present. 
  • Parents may communicate with Taylor, our Welcome Concierge via text or phone at 260-632-2735
  • Parents may schedule an in-person meeting with Taylor if needed
  • Staff will wear masks as long as it is "recommended" in public
  • Using hand sanitizer on all teachers and students before and after class
  • Keeping all dancer's belongings in the studio rather than in cubbies
  • Cleaning touched surfaces with disinfecting wipes after every class (props, doorknobs, light switches, barres, etc.


If your child or anyone in your household has experienced the following symptoms in the last two weeks, we ask that you keep your child home from class: 

  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Sore throat
  • New loss of taste or smell 


Traffic Light System

Should Governor Holcom announce any backtracking in the Back On Track Indiana plan, we will move classes online as needed.

A traffic light system on the homepage of our website will let you know what to expect each week:

  • Green = In-studio
  • Yellow = Check Your Email For Instructions
  • Red = Online Classes
