COVID-19 GUIDELINES

We take your health and safety very seriously and are continuously assessing risks and adjustments accordingly. We will keep our guidelines regularly updated in line with changing government guidelines. 

 

Please do not attend class if you any of the following:

  • A high temperature

  • A new continuous cough

  • A loss of or change to your taste or smell

  • You are waiting for a Covid-19 test result

  • You have been in contact with someone who has Covid-19 or is waiting for a test result

  • You have recently returned from a high risk country or region. 


More guidelines available here:  www.gov.uk/coronavirus

Studios

We work at a range of studios so please read the guidelines for the studio you’re going to. The sorts of protocols vary slightly but expect:

  • Arriving no more than 10 minutes early and leaving straight after class

  • Track and trace (this is most likely signing in at reception)

  • One way systems to get people in and out of the building. 

  • Bring your own water bottle filled from home (most places will not have water-refilling)

  • No changing rooms (come as ready as possible to dance)

  • Masks in communal areas, and potentially for dancing. 

  • Open windows (bring layers)

  • No equipment sharing (e.g. mats, water bottles, clothes)

  • Available toilets (please wear your mask and keep it as clean as possible)

  • Hand-sanitising at every opportunity

  • Marked spaces on the floor for you to dance in.

  • Personal belongings distantly placed. 

  • More thorough cleaning procedures in place in each venue (daily or between classes)

Mask wearing

Please have a mask with you for all our classes

We as teachers will either wear a mask or visor for teaching

Participants are expected to wear one in communal areas.

At present mask-wearing for dancing is left to the participants choice.

Coughing and Sneezing

Please make sure to cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve and follow the governments ‘Catch it, Bin it, Kill it’ advice:

Contact/ Social Distancing

We’ll have to hold back from hugs for a while. Please avoid contact with others in the building and during our activities. Aim to keep 2m distance and where not possible at least 1m. We will not be able to loiter in the studio before and after class, so catch ups will need to take place outside. Arrive no more than 10 minutes before the class. 

 

In this time our movement material will be adapted to ensure distance from each other but you will need to take spatial awareness responsibilities. Please work in a smaller way than you may be used to when practising.

 

This is a work in progress. If you would like to get in touch or share any of your thoughts, concerns or advice, please do contact us. This is something we will all have to work out together, given the loose government guidelines in the UK.
