At YPAC the health and safety of our faculty and students are our most important priorities.

As COVID-19 continues to spread and affect many parts of the U.S., we have been closely monitoring local conditions. After consulting with industry leaders and reviewing statements from the IL State government as well as local government and health providers, we have determined that it is in the best interest of our faculty and families to temporarily suspend all classes.

Effective immediately, all YPAC locations will be closed until March 29 to help slow the spread of COVID-19. YPAC already had a scheduled spring break for the week of March 22-29. And the unexpected suspension of classes March 14-21 will be made up by not taking off the week following the Dance Year End Show June 15-20 which was originally planned. 

CLASS UPDATES

  • Our temporary suspension of classes will begin effective immediately Monday, March 16, 2020.

  • Remote work policies for our employees will begin effective immediately Monday, March 16, 2020.

  • Our employees will follow the schools in shifting their attention from traditional content delivery to online engagement opportunities for students. More to come after this week.

  • We will also continue to follow the lead of the State of Illinois Health Department and Kendall and Will County Health Departments as to when it is safe for local schools to re-open for classes.
