There are markers on the floor to help us keep a distance.
Classes are limited to 11 participants +teachers until further notice.
There are 30min gaps between classes to air the room and wipe surfaces.
Windows will be opened / fans used.
There will be hand sanitizers at the door.
Long basin arm taps in bathrooms which you can turn on and off using your wrist or elbow.

Please use hand sanitizer provided or wash your hands as soon as you enter the building. Wear Masks in communal areas – corridors and toilets.

The markers on the floor will help us spread out. If we do ‘travelling’ dance steps please follow our instructions carefully to maintain a comfortable distance for all.
A computer will be set up during sessions for Zoom, and although will be mainly pointed at the teacher, it might catch other participants on camera.  Please let us know in advance if this is a concern for you and we will do our best to accommodate.
