The time has come to re-open our doors to you all and get back dancing! Things will be the same but with some slightly different measures for the safety of our students and staff.

We have been busy over the last few weeks putting measures in place to create a safe environment, to enable you to return to dance.

Measures in place:

  •  If you or any family members have symptoms of COVID-19 please DO NOT attend any of our classes or private lessons.


  •  A new entry and exit policy. We will enter via the front door and exit via the emergency exit creating a better flow of foot traffic.


  • Please wait 2 metres away from the front door or in your vehicle before your lesson and your teacher will invite you in.

  • All classes and private lessons will be 50 minutes with a 10 minute turnaround for exiting and cleaning between lessons.

  • Hand sanitiser will be made available on entry. We ask that everyone uses the hand sanitiser when entering and exiting the building.

  • Main toilets are closed and only the disabled are in use, so that regular cleaning can take place.

  • For children's classes/private lessons, can we please ask that only one accompanying adult per child attends if you wish to stay in the building.


  • Teachers are on a non-touch policy and will be social distancing while teaching adults and children.


  • Teachers and students will be asked to wear masks where possible, please bring your own protective equipment.


  • Group classes will be smaller to a maximum of 6 couples per class (adhering to social distancing guidelines). Children's classes will be split depending on numbers returning but will be a maximum of 12 per class. (Currently, we won't be operating classes at the Haven Christian Centre but are setting up temporary alternative arrangements).

  • Sanitised plastic chairs will be provided for changing shoes.

  • Belongings (ie. Coats, waters bottles, shoe bags) must be kept in a designated place provided by our teachers. Please keep belongings to a minimum.

  • Please come ready dressed in your dancewear, as there are no changing rooms available.

  • Couple dancing is only allowed between couples from the same household/same confirmed dance partner bubble.

  • Ideally, we would prefer to take payment via electronic transfer. Although, we will still continue to take cash payments if this is more convenient.

  • Practice sessions are off the table for the time being, but we are hoping to get these up and running, as soon as guidance lets us.


We would ask you to follow the above guidelines to keep everyone safe and happily dancing!

Thank you!
