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.
We have closed off reception / changing rooms and will not allow parents into the building. You will be met by one of the team at the door, who will lead the children up to their studio. They will be walked down and staff will wait for them to be collected in the foyer.
We have grouped all lessons for Ballet, Tap and Jazz together. Each class bubble will work in one studio and staff will rotate to come in to teach. All children are getting the same length of class as they previously had before lockdown.
We have scheduled the classes to allow time for classes to leave / arrive and to minimise the number of children in the building at one time.
All staff will work at distance and there will be no physical contact from tutors with the children / children with each other.
In addition to the Government advice above:
We are offering all classes except Acro, which is highly reliant on contact work so will remain off the schedule for the time being. You will see that each class will take their classes back to back in their class bubble and in the same studio. There will be no moving around the building for them, just for tutors. If your child only attends 1 subject in their class bubble they can still attend that one class, please contact us to check the time to arrive.
