TRAINING

  • Students will remain in a studio for the duration of their time at Dancebox -   teachers will move between studios.

  • Zoom sessions will continue for certain classes where parents have requested ZOOM attendance, via our ‘Face-to Face or Zoom’ survey and for all Tiny / Little Stars, due to parents not being able to attend classes. These will continue until further notice – please note classes will take place at the scheduled time and will not be recorded.

 

COLLECTION

  • Students to be collected no more than 15 minutes after class.

  • At the end of the lesson students will change into their outdoor shoes and clothes before leaving the studio and wait inside the building, queuing at the relevant collection door.

  • At the collection time, the doors will open, and your child will be asked to sanitize hands when leaving the studio.

  • The assistant will release students to waiting parents in order; please wait your turn, do not request your child to leave ahead of other parents in the queue.

If the student is NOT collected on time, the parent will be charged a late collection fee of £5 for every 15 mins, or part thereof, until the student is collected. The penalty is in place to mitigate delays and, subsequently, our ability to run a Covid safe environment.

 

IF SOMEONE DEVELOPS SYMPTOMS WHILST AT DANCEBOX

  • If any child becomes unwell or develops any symptoms of COVID-19 family will be contacted and they will be sent home and advised to follow the staying at home guidance, the temperature may be checked if the child is complaining of feeling unwell.

  • If parents need clinical advice, they (parent or guardian) should go online to NHS 111 (or call 111 if they don’t have internet access).

  • In an emergency, call 999 if they are seriously ill or injured or their life is at risk. Do not visit the GP, pharmacy, urgent care centre or a hospital.

  • In most cases, closure of Dancebox Studios will not be needed but this decision will be made based on various factors including the risk of further spread. If there is a positive test, parents will be informed, and the bubble will have to close.

  • This is a fast-evolving situation and we will monitor and share any new advice at the earliest opportunity.
