During these challenging times we are working to keep our Students and Teachers safe and have taken advice from the Operatic House team, Government and the IDTA about face to face teaching.
If a student has any symptoms of Covid-19 or have been asked to self isolate they must not attend the studio, however they will be able to join online using the Zoom platform if they wish.
Below we have laid out a set of measures that aim to adhere to current guidelines, but this information is subject to change as the advice changes.
Extra Measures at Studio
There will be regular cleaning at the studio. To allow for additional cleaning classes may well start a few minutes late and/or finish a few minutes early.
If for any reason a student requires first aid, the teacher will wear a mask and gloves whilst it is administered.
Hand sanitiser will be available, but all students must wash their hands before attending a class. We ask, where possible, that students use the toilet before coming to class and arrive ready changed.
We are asking all students over 12 to wear face masks when waiting outside for their class until they have changed and are in the studio but this is not compulsory.
Dropping off Students and Parent Waiting
Parents/guardians must wear masks if entering the building.
What to Bring
Please bring as little as possible a water bottle, change of shoes and a warm up layer.
What to Wear
Please if possible change at home and only come to the studio with the essentials required for your class. Please wear the normal uniform, however in keeping with government advice we will be keeping the studio doors and windows open to allow for air to circulate so dancers will need a warm up layer either JSD Hoody or ballet cardigan and legwarmers.
Return to Classes in The Studio
The timetable will be the same should we have another lockdown and need to go back to full online teaching.
As mentioned above the studio door and windows will be open to allow a constant supply of fresh air. This will decrease the temperature in the studio so dancers will need to bring layers to keep warm.
