IN-PERSON CLASSES IN THE STUDIO RETURN FROM 16TH APRIL 2021
Thank you to all our dancers for being such amazing students through last terms Zoom sessions. The great news is, that we’ll be resuming classes after the Easter break in the studio!!
The restrictions means that we’re only allowed to teach under 18s inside though, so our adult classes will remain on Zoom until week commencing 17th May.
We’ll have social distancing and safety procedures in the studio as before. There’s more details on this below.
BOOK YOUR PLACES FOR MUMMY & ME, ACRO & STREET
Your place is reserved for ballet, modern and tap classes as before, but if you’d like to sign up for the new term of Mummy & Me, Acro and Street Dance classes, please contact us ASAP to reserve your place.
COVID SAFETY PROCEDURES
Drop off & pick up
To keep numbers in the building to a minimum, please drop off and collect your child after class. We understand that parents of younger children will prefer to wait and this is absolutely fine, but only on adult per child please. Social distancing should be observed whilst you wait.
One way in and out
Please enter the waiting room via the usual door (round the back of the hall). Children should enter the studio via the internal door. After class, children will leave via the external studio door, where they should be collected. Please note that this area is not covered, so you may need to bring a brolly in bad weather!
Hand hygiene & masks
Hands must be sanitised using the products provided when you enter the building. Dancers need not wear masks, though parents & guardians using the waiting room should wear a mask at all times.
Kitchen & changing room closed
Kitchen facilities will not be accessible, so please ensure dancers and those waiting bring their own drinks. Dancers should come ready for class as the changing room will not be open.
The dance studio will be cleaned after each class when floor, barres and any other equipment used will be wiped down. To give time for cleaning, your class will be shorter than usual (i.e one hour classes will be 50 mins). We thank you in advance for your understanding.
Studio spacing for dancers
Our studio is equipped with free standing barres, which means we can configure them to ensure maximum distance between dancers when working at the barre. For centre work, the studio floor has been marked out into two metre squares and younger dancers will be encouraged to stay within them. Older dancers can use the squares to help maintain a 2m distance as they use more of the floor.
