In-store COVID-19 Protocol

We are so happy to remain open and working with our amazing customers. Due to new health and safety protocols mandated by the state of Illinois, your visit will be a little bit different, but we promise we will still be able to provide the highest level of service possible. We are taking the health and safety of our customers and staff seriously, especially as we enter cold and flu season.

For general shopping: our stores are available to walk-in shoppers; you do not need an appointment to come into the store to shop. 
General Reminders:
  • We kindly ask that you do not bring additional family members or friends to shop or for your pointe fitting appointment. Due to regulations, we have a limited number of customers allowed in the store.
  • If we are at our capacity, we may ask you to wait outside, or come back shortly. Currently, shoppers are only having to wait a maximum of 15 minutes to enter, although we do ask you to remain flexible, should we have a particularly busy day.
  • Expedited pickup options are still available. Please contact your desired store location to arrange this.
  • Our fitting rooms and bathrooms are currently closed. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
For Pointe Fitting Appointments: for the health and safety of the dancer, pointe fittings will be by appointment only until further notice. Schedule your fitting here. If your desired time is not available, please contact your preferred store.
Remember to bring the following items to your pointe fitting appointment:
  1. Fresh, clean tights - Please wear these to Allegro. If you forget these, we have some for purchase.
  2. The dancer's current pointe shoes.
  3. Any accessories needed in the shoes (we will not have sample toe pads or accessories available).
  4. A properly fitting face mask for anyone coming into the store.
When you arrive at Allegro
  1. Please do not arrive earlier than your scheduled appointment time. If you arrive and the door is locked, please call the store for further instruction, as we might be finishing with our previous appointment.
  2. Ensure your mask is on properly and sanitize your hands.
  3. Your fitter will greet you and show you to your designated fitting area.
General Pointe Fitting Appointment Reminders:
  • We will limit the amount of time we're in close contact, so appointments will be a bit shorter, and we will no longer be handling the dancer's bare feet.
  • We will need to quarantine all shoes that are tried on for 24 hours. Please make sure to talk to the teacher about any possible shoe recommendations, so that we can be as prepared as possible.
