With most restrictions lifted and with most of the country vaccinated it is looking promising that the end will arrive soon. To be on the safe side we would like to keep some precautions in place as follows:
Please do not attend class if your child is ill
Please remind children to always cough or sneeze into a tissue or their elbow and wash hands straight afterwards. We will always have tissues and hand gel in the studio.
Please come to class dressed if you can
To limit the number of people on site we kindly ask you to drop your child at the doors.
Due to the current government rules only those with an immunity card are allowed into the building
Depending on the forever changing situation we may ask children over the age of 7 years to wear masks to and from class and possibly in class as well. We have organised classes so that if need be children can dance in their own 2 meter box so that we can keep social distance.
We will encourage social distancing for the age 6 and masks are optional.
All children are to wash/disinfect their hands before and after class and snack time.
In the event of a lockdown
In the event of another lockdown you will have a choice of make-up classes or on-line .
We thank you for your understanding. We will keep you informed as things keep changing.
