Dear all dancers
Finally we have some good news for you… we are preparing to reopen our classes at the TLC studio – hurrah! We have missed teaching our super family of dancers so much and can’t wait to reconnect with everyone in real classes! We are planning to re-open our classes from week beginning Monday 14 September (except for Kizomba as the back hall is too small for social distancing – sorry)
But first, we need your help.
In order for us to ensure classes are Covid-secure and as safe as possible for you, they will now have to be in a different format, and we will outline those details below.
What would be really helpful right now, is for those of you who are definitely interested in returning to classes, to complete our short survey so that we can timetable classes effectively to suit the majority of you. Each style of dance has it’s own survey, so please click the links below.
By law, we have to ensure the venue and classes are Covid-secure, which means there are all sorts of restrictions and we will publish our process of keeping your safety as our priority later. We won’t bore you with the details now (we’ve been trawling through all the guidance for months!) but here are the most important points which will affect classes for you:
With all these safety aspects in mind, we are proposing these draft timetables for each style, but will adjust it according to the results of the survey. We are trying to offer something for everyone, with the addition of Fridays to cover the rest, so please bear with us in this complicated process:

Best wishes to all of you
Tracie & Gareth
