Dear Parents / Students,
Firstly, we hope you are all safe and well at this difficult time.
As you would expect we have been monitoring the situation closely, which is why last week we introduced stringent new cleaning and sanitising of ballet barres, cups, surfaces, etc at all our classes as well as re-choreographing all work to avoid touching other dancers. We appreciate your understanding of this.
However, the situation has continued to change daily (sometimes hourly), and following the Prime ministers briefing yesterday and with advice from other parties today, we feel that we probably fall into the category of “non-essential activity and social contact”.
Sadly, we have to announce that we are suspending all classes until further notice.
This is the most difficult decision we have ever had to make and we are incredibly sad - our attitude has always been that “the show must go on!” but these are unprecedented times and we are also finding that venues and activities are closing all around us.
As this situation progresses, we will look at ways to keep your dancing passions alive (and ours!) so watch this space. We will also be offering catch up classes to make up for the rest of this term when we return.
We would like to personally thank you for your continued support at this incredibly tough time.
The Show DVD is likely to be available from early next week, and we will soon post the photos of the show in our website members area, so watch out in your email inboxes for further information.
Wishing you all every blessing for this time, we hope you and your families are all well
