Measures to keep you safe at the TLC dance school in Southampton

We would like to assure you that we want to keep things as safe as possible for you, our staff and all our dancers, and therefore we would like to keep a few measures in place as a temporary measure while we transition and also to keep us going for as long as possible.  

We have introduced a ‘test on the day to enter’ policy and believe this is the best and fairest policy to mitigate the risk.
In order to attend, you will need to provide:

  • Take a lateral flow or PCR test on the day of attending each class 
  • Either show the negative result via text/email on your phone when you arrive or bring the actual test stick with you, which will be then thrown in the bin;
  • Wash / sanitise your hands on arrival, as many times during the evening as necessary and as you leave;
  • Bring your own water / drinks;

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 together if they wish
  • using breaks in classes to encourage the frequent use of hand sanitisers / washing hands
  • providing good ventilation. 
  • (masks can be worn but no longer mandatory)

Couples who do not want to change can stay fixed during the entire evening.  Solo dancers can dance together and also with the teachers.

Anyone who has tested positive for Covid who has booked on a class or a course, we will give you a credit for a future class.

You can obtain Covid test packs from your local pharmacy for free or from the Government website who post them for free and arrive the next day. (They come in boxes of 7 test kits).  You can then report your test result on the Government website here
The system will send you an email and a text message of your result and you can show this at the door when you arrive at TLC.
Alternatively you bring in the actual test stick with you (preferably in a plastic bag) and verify the negative result.  The stick will be thrown in the bin.

We really appreciate everyone working together with us on this so that we can be as safe for as long as possible.

We look forward to welcoming you back with us at TLC.
