Dance Classes are Back!

In light of the recent government announcement regarding socialising in groups of no more than 6, we wish to clarify to you that this does not affect Hype Dance Company and we can remain open, operating as per our new Covid-19 guidelines.

From 7th September 2020 we will be re-starting dance classes at our studios. Initially we'll be running a smaller timetable than usual with the intention of getting back to a full and normal timetable as soon as possible. Our first concern is the safety and wellbeing of our staff and customers and to that end we've made some changes to the way we'll be doing things.

Please read this information carefully as it outlines what we have done in line with Government policy to make the building safe for everyone to return to their dance classes with us as well as other important information.

  • We have implemented a smaller schedule of classes at re-opening
  • We have altered some class times to assist with cleaning
  • We have limited the number of people in the building at one time
  • We have heightened our cleaning procedures
  • We have installed sanitisers in the building
  • Contact areas will be sanitised after each class
  • Appropriate time has been allowed for air to circulate in between classes

Important Booking Information

ALL students, for ALL classes (except Saturday IDTA exam classes) will need to book and pay for their class(es) online and in advance at hypedance.org.uk/login.

If you have danced with us at Hype before you will have been emailed instructions on how to access your account if you haven’t already done so. You will already have an account with us and simply need to set a password by following the link in the email. If you haven’t received these instructions, please check your spam / junk folder before contacting us.

If you are unable to see any classes when you try to enrol please check the student date of birth. The system only shows classes that are applicable to each student based on their age.

If you need to make changes to your profile simply click on "Profile" > "Edit" and if you need to amend the student details (such as date of birth) simply click on "Student" > "Student Name" > "Edit" once you've logged into your account.

If you haven't danced with us before just follow the link and click on "Register".

To book a class simply log in to your account, click on the “Enrol Now” button, select the student you’d like to book the classes for and then choose from the list of classes.

Classes are now live to book and will be bookable a week in advance, and will be available the following morning after class. There will be no refunds if you book a space and don’t attend class without cancelling your space at least 24 hours in advance of the start of the class you have booked onto if we are unable to fill your space.

If you are part of the MoveGB scheme you will need to book the class via the MoveGB app / website, NOT via our website.

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 and respect social distancing if this happens.

Points to Note

  • Please read sign on door and if you / your child has symptoms, do not enter
  • Students must sanitise before going upstairs and again before entering the studios
  • Students must arrive ready - the changing room & reception are not open
  • The toilet is open operating 1 person at a time to maintain social distancing
  • Please ensure any bags can be hung up on pegs in the studio - nothing to be left on the floor please
  • Do not come into foyer or upstairs until you are met by a member of staff
  • Please adhere to social distancing at all times as best you can
  • Masks / gloves may be worn during class although they are not mandatory
  • Please leave the building as soon as your class has finished - no loitering!
  • IF YOU HAVE NOT PRE-BOOKED AND PAID PLEASE DO NOT COME - WE CANNOT ACCEPT WALK IN’S AT THE MOMENT

Remember, this is a new system for everyone so please be patient over the first few weeks as we all find our way, and soon we can return to full steam ahead as we were in March. Rest assured the usual energy, laughter and enthusiasm will be here when we see everyone again!

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...
