Studio phased reopening as per government guidelines and roadmap - spring 2021: Please see below our plan based on the latest government announcment. This plan covers our proposed return dates plus how we will deliver when we are allowed to re-open the studio to members of the public:

The dates of our re-opening.

  1. All our classes for under 18's including our MiniCre8ive toddler classes will recommence at the studio from Monday 12th April.
  2. All adult dance and fitness classes will recommence at the studio from Monday 17th May.
  3. We are closely looking at our timetable to ensure our students are continuing to progress. Usually we have made changes to some of our class times to ensure students are moving to the correct level and continuing to access the time they need to progress. It is important to us that we continue with this process as much as possible to prevent our students from losing out on opportunities. Although we know change is not easy to accommodate, it is only ever done to help with the progress of the students. Any changes to class times will be communicated to you prior to our return.

Once at the studio. Although some social distancing measures may start to ease in the coming months we will still be following social distancing measures until we officially announce otherwise. With this in mind please see below our processes that we will continue to follow once we return to the studio. We ask all parents to remind their children too of these processes so we can work together to continue to be safe:

  1. Parents are not permitted to enter any parts of the studio unless they are taking part in our Mini-Cre8ive Toddler dance sessions.
  2. A one-way system is in place with a tutor collecting students from the front entrance and seeing them out the back door at the end of their lesson.
  3. Temperature checks are in place for every student entering the building and any student with a temperature of 37.8 or more will not be allowed access.
  4. Hand sanitising stations are already in place throughout the studio and all students are asked to hand sanitise on entry to the building.
  5. We are operating a queuing system to enter the building. All students are advised to socially distance and queue along the front of the building and around the edge and down the side of the building and refrain from spilling into the car park.
  6. We are socially distancing in the studio and are encouraging all students and parents to do so whilst waiting for entry and as they leave the area.
  7. Any equipment used for classes is cleaned prior and cleaned afterwards.
  8. Once Adults are allowed to return we will encourage them to bring their own equipment to their classes if they have it available. If you do need to use our equipment we are asking you to make contact prior to inform us so we can be ready.
  9. The studio is cleaned regularly and high touch areas are cleaned every hour.

CAST and Parklands Show opportunities for all students. Some students will be working towards both CAST and Parklands events but every student will be working towards atleast one of these events. We have continued to prepare the students for these events and these will become a priority for us as soon as we can confirm dates with the venues. We know parents have missed out on opportunities to see their children perform with their team - this is a priority for us when we return:

  1. We are working with CAST to secure new dates for after the summer for our CAST show (2021).
  2. We are working with CAST to secure dates for 2022 show - something for everyone to get excited about.
  3. We are waiting on dates for our Parklands show and hope to come back to you with some dates for the summer 2021 and a christmas performance too.

Any confirmed dates for performances will be communicated to you as soon as we have them finalised.
