Health & Safety Procedures

Health & Safety Procedures

Indianapolis School of Ballet’s latest guidelines to keep our students safe. (Updated July 28, 2020).

We are excited to welcome students back to the studio! We would like to provide you with some information regarding new guidelines we have put into place. The ISB team has spoken in depth about the best practices to ensure the health and safety of all students, parents, faculty, and staff while still providing a challenging and enjoyable experience for all students.


Because of current concerns, please note that these guidelines will be strictly enforced and are non-negotiable. They are also subject to change as we adapt to guidelines from the CDC and the Marion County Health Department. We ask that you read through these (and discuss with your child if they are under the age of 18) so that everyone comes to the ISB studios knowing what to expect.

What you can expect from us:


  • The week of August 3rd, all classes will be virtually held via Zoom with a modified schedule. In-person instruction will begin August 10th. (Exception: All Adult/Open Division classes will begin the week of August 10th.) We will continue to monitor the health guidelines and update you with any changes.
  • We have staggered class times to alleviate too many students coming and going at the same time.
  • All students will have their temperatures scanned upon entering our facilities.
  • The front of the studio will be marked off as a “safe zone” from which the teacher will conduct the class. This is an area where the teacher will remain, and the students will avoid.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available at the studios; however, each student is advised to bring a small supply of their own.
  • Barres will be thoroughly wiped down between classes.

What we expect from you:


  • As of July 9th, in accordance with the Marion County Public Health Department’s mandate,  the wearing of face masks is required in all areas of ISB.
  • All students will be required to sign a liability waiver in order to participate in classes at ISB. This form must be completed before you can participate in class. (Click here for form.) You may complete this and email it to Rachel Dees at, fax to #317-955-7526, or mail a copy to our studio. If you are unable to complete this and return it as stated above, please notify the receptionist upon entering that you need to complete a form.
  • Please plan on arriving at the studio building no earlier than one half hour before the start of class.
  • If you are dropping a student off, upon arrival at the studio building, please bring your student to the front entry door. They will enter the reception area on their own.
  • To avoid any congregating in the dressing rooms, all students must arrive already dressed for class with their hair in place. The bathrooms across from the studio are available if it is necessary to change in the building. Cover-ups can be removed and placed in a dance bag, which will go with each student directly into the studio, not the dressing room.
  • In the studio, students will be required to maintain at least a 6-foot distance apart, both at the barre and in the center. Students must also be aware of keeping distance from their fellow dancers along the side of the studio in preparation for any center exercises requiring small groups to travel either from the back of the studio to the front, or from one corner to the other.
  • Students should bring their own water bottles, preferably with a straw to make drinking under a mask easier.


Thank you for your understanding in adhering to the above guidelines, and please let us know if you have any further questions or concerns.
