Just a quick email to let all our members know that following the most recent government announcement we look forward to returning to the studio on Monday 12th of April!
Procedures for returning...
All venues have hand sanitiser throughout, signage for direction and regular cleaning rotas in place. Studio floors remain marked for social distancing.
Please be aware that as dance teachers we may be required to act in a child's best interest and this may at times involve
* Hand holding (teacher to student only, if a child is upset, needs guiding into class, distressed or in need of momentary reassurance)
* First aid administration (teacher to student only if circumstances were to arise)
* Picking a child up (should they fall over or be upset)
Should you wish for a teacher not to take this approach then can we please request you notify us in writing (email) prior to class.
Whilst the government have advised that social distancing between pre school students is not required, we have still adapted our lesson plans to minimise any risks and contact. We have done this in a way that the students should not even recognise a change in their typical dance class.
As professional dance teachers we are trained to understand student needs. We spend years training to be able to adapt in any situation, provide a safe environment for learning and ensure students are happy, well rounded performers. Over the last month we have spent many hours discussing our risk assessments, lesson plans and facilities to try make our return to dance a seamless, enjoyable return from what has been a very difficult time.
We can't wait to see everyone back at class. Should you require any uniform, we have our dance wear on display at our main studio for sizing and options. Uniform can be ordered at https://www.thehebdenschoolofdancing.co.uk/
All bookings will resume as normal but you are of course welcome to add additional classes to your schedule via our online booking site. https://hebdendance.class4kids.co.uk
You can log into your Account at any time to view your bookings and edit your personal details: https://bookings.class4kids.co.uk/dashboard (Please note we are currently sorting our registers for next term so there may be a delay in your booking showing.)
We will send further updates shortly :)
30th December 2020
We have waited for today’s government update before announcing our next plan to keep our dancers moving and our dance school alive. Whilst we had hoped the new year would bring us a fresh start and a full schedule of classes back in our studios, we have to adhere to government legislation to protect everyone and assist in the fight against coronavirus.
For January 2021 we will be drastically reducing ALL our members fees. We wish to support our families and dancers in this difficult time but also carefully ensure our students have their dance school to return to.
Alongside reduced fees we will be offering a complimentary schedule of pre-recorded and live classes accessible to all students so that they continue with their tuition at home, stay connected with their peers and continue with their love of dance. We will not be able to run in-studio classes for January. If for any reason this was to change, we will notify members immediately.
Alongside our efforts to stay connected with students throughout January we continue to add complimentary camp dates and activities for our students throughout 2021 to thank families for their continued support.
