London Dance Studio, the safe studio!
Covid safety measures
(under constant review, status of 18th October 2021)
London Dance Studio provides the students with the full dancing experience in hold if they feel confident to do so, but still applies Covid19 safety measures to limit risks in accordance with the recommmendations of scientists and the government. The goal is freedom when partner dancing and meeting up, while providing a safe and more inclusive space, welcoming back to the dance floor also those who have to be or choose to be more careful.
- While the Covid infection numbers are high London Dance Studio strongly recommends Lateral Flow testing on the day and to bring the registraton email or text message on the mobile, which makes then mask wearing an option and an arrangement between two people. Look for more details below.
- The studio provides hand sanitiser and all touched surfaces are regularly sanitised.
- Numbers of participants and dance lessons are restricted and doors are frequently open for ventilation.
At indoor group classes and at the Wednesday socials
If students provide the registration of a negative test result from a Lateral Flow Test on the day:
- then mask wearing is optional and an arrangement between two people.
- then they are also welcome to change partners and dance with the teacher.
Otherwise students have to keep wearing a mask and stay with their dance partner or dance socially distanced, even if they are double vaccinated.
If students prefer to dance solo for now, they are welcome and supported to do so.
Students are being asked to bring the test registration text message or email from the NHS website. All our teachers test on each day before they come to the studio.
At 1-1 lessons
Lateral Flow testing is strongly recommended, mask wearing is an option and both have to be agreed between the student(s) and the teacher. All our teachers test before they come to the studio.
At our London Ballroom Fever - dance parties
Lateral Flow tests are mandatory at our parties and will be checked at the entrance. Please bring the test registration text message or email from the NHS website. Mask wearing is optional and an arrangement between two dance partners.
