Under 18 Dance Classes are back on!

THURSDAY 26TH NOVEMBER 2020

It’s been announced today that South Yorkshire will go into Tier 3 from December 2nd 2020 in the fight against Coronavirus.

Unfortunately whilst we are in tier 3 we’re unable to offer any adult group classes - the tiers are being reviewed every 2 weeks so we are hoping that we can get back to offering adult group classes from the new year but will of course let you all know as soon as we do. It does mean however that Hype Dance will be able to offer under 18 group classes, private one to one classes for all ages and the studios will be available for personal / private hire on Wednesdays only.

It’s a great shame as we’ll not have seen many of you adults for at least 2 months by the time we get to January but fear not - we have a plan! We thought it would be nice to have a virtual Christmas party on Friday 18th December so that we can all say hello and have a fun evening to end off an otherwise rubbish year. What form this will take and how it will work is still tbc but get the date in your diaries for now. Our under 18’s will still get to enjoy Saturday Christmas Funday on the final day of term (Saturday 19th December).

As ever we are working hard to sustain as a small arts organisation and will soon have some dance class vouchers available for that ideal Christmas present for the dancer in your life. There are a few Hype branded water bottles, beanies, towels and children’s clothing still available as well - every little helps at the minute. If you are missing your dancing and would like to access some online classes let us know as we have our online library from Lockdown 1.0 available to access from just £15.

We thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you here in September. If you have any questions just get in touch. Stay safe...


Once you’re here

You must wait outside the building for a member of staff to come and let you in. If it’s raining, we don’t want you all getting wet so you will be let in to wait in the stairway and corridor.

We ask that you wear a face mask when inside the building at all times (apart from in the studios during class although you may still wear a mask if you wish) and that you respect social distancing wherever possible.
