Welcome back everyone!
Finally, from Monday 20 September we will be FULLY open in our beautiful Southampton dance school and ready to start our normal Ballroom and Latin classes every Monday! It will be so good to see you back with us after all this time. Whether you are an Absolute Beginner wanting to learn all your Strictly favourites, or an existing dancer wanting to refresh your technique for tea dances/cruise holidays, we have it all at TLC! We teach in a very organic way so that dancers learn how to lead and to follow with improvisation, rather than learn choreography. Without the pressure of exams or medals we have a lot of fun on the dance floor. The format & prices of our classes is shown below and we teach in 3 week blocks so you really get to understand each dance.
As we reopen our doors, we want to keep you all as safe as possible for you, so we are introducing a ‘Test to Enter’ policy.
Therefore please remember to bring to each class:
– evidence of a negative lateral flow test (or PCR) within the last 2 days before attending each class (NHS text or email to be shown at the desk)
– or bring the actual test stick with you.
Please DO NOT ATTEND if you have any symptoms of Covid-19, or should be in isolation due to diagnosis, contact with a case or travel from a high risk area.
In addition to this, we are taking the following measures:
- bookings will be taken in advance so we can limit numbers in classes
- partners can stay fixed if they wish
- encouraging frequent use of hand sanitisers / washing of hands
- providing good ventilation
We hope you can understand these measures are a temporary transition to ease us into normality.
Further details on each point are here
We can’t wait to see you all back with us and having some fun on the dance floor again.
However, we do understand that some of you may still be reluctant to return, and we totally get it – so we hope to see you at some point when you are ready.
