Safe Social Distancing, Footwear, Water Bottles and Face Coverings
Social safe distancing:
When you are ready, choose a mark on the floor which will mark the centre of your allocated 2 metre square space for the duration of the dance class
Please keep 2 metres apart from other dancers to your sides, in front and behind
Where possible at all times try to all face the same way as one another rather than face to face
If you need to sit down at any time, or get to get a drink, that is fine but please let the dance leader know so that people can be moved in a socially distanced way.
Please wear jazz shoes, dance pumps, trainers, pumps, flexible soft shoes or socks with grips. No bare feet.
If possible, keep your face covering on throughout the class. If you find this very uncomfortable, pop it under your chin while dancing but slip it back over your nose and mouth during explanations or movement demonstrations.

Ventilation and Layering Up:
