RETURNING TO CLASSES
It's great to finally say we're once again hitting the dance floor, however, safety comes first and we all have a part to play in keeping our community safe and well.
Please read the following page carefully and make sure you are comfortable with and fully understand the new requirements before booking a class.
Class capacity has been reduced to ensure social distancing can be maintained, therefore spaces will be available on a first come, first served basis. You will be required to make a non-refundable payment at the point of booking.
COVID-19 SAFETY MEASURES
Please read the following carefully and make sure you are comfortable with the new measures that have been put in place as part of our own Risk Assessment and also that of the venue ( Cawston Community Hall).
Before booking ensure you fully understand the new student requirements, as failure to comply with the new rules may result in you being refused entry or being asked to leave the session.
It is at the venue's discretion to cancel our session should we or any of our attendees be in breach of any of the new terms of hire.
Spaces are limited and advanced booking and prepayment are essential. We cannot accept drop-in's or cash payment on site. This is a requirement of the new terms and conditions of hire.
Arrive promptly for all classes. Doors will remain locked until 5 minutes before your session starts, however, if you arrive early please wait in your car or make use of the paved areas around the hall ensuring that you are adhering to the 2m social distancing rule.
Doors will be locked once all booked attendees have entered the building. If you are going to be late, text us on the number in your booking confirmation email, we will then advise you of what to do on arrival. This is a requirement of the new terms and conditions of hire.

If you have personal belonging to remove, coats, bags etc. please place these around the outside of the room, being sure to store things safely as to not create a trip hazard, before taking your spot. You may only take personal hand sanitiser and bottled drinks with to your position.
Masks may be removed at personal discretion, only when the dance session is in progress as per government guidance for sports, recreation and performing arts.
Masks/face coverings must be reapplied if you leave your designated spot at any time, for example, if you need to use the toilet, take a phone call, leave early etc. This is a requirement of the new terms and conditions of hire.
