September restart programme after 1st lockdown 2020. There were a number of changes that we had to make, to comply & follow government guidelines. Numbers greatly reduced in accordance with Government & Council guidelines. All lessons have to be pre-booked. The pilot scheme we had in place for September/Oct worked very well as some dancing & exercise is better than not having anything at all. Once fully subscribed for that class then you may need to be flexible if possible or be added to a waiting list. It will have to be on a first booked/paid basis. No cash can be taken on door, payment will be bank transfer (given in email) for a number of consecutive weeks in the month & will continue monthly for the foreseeable future. Full details will also be in the email like, contact details for track & trace, entrance, exit, sanitising of hands, bring own water bottles etc, etc. Couples for lessons from same household or support bubble only. This area will be constantly updated so please keep checking. We made a start to some normality after 6 months of closure.
