Friday classes – changes post-July 19th

Dear Beautiful Dancers,

Friday Classes after July 19th *UPDATED*

Thank you all for your support through all the changes we’ve been through so far. To those who have had the joy of dancing together the last few weeks – your radiant smiles and feedback make it all worth while 🙂

Now we take another step towards some kind of ‘normal’ – informed by the latest guidance (*note 3), from this week:

  • The number of places is now 33 (*note 1)
  • You can transfer bookings to a different date up until noon on the day of the class (*note 2)
  • ‘Drop-in’ is back – you can once again turn up and pay cash if you suddenly get free…

That said…

  • Advance booking is strongly recommended:
    • it’s cheaper – the drop-in cash price is a flat rate £15;
    • it’s quicker – no fiddling with cash, and do ‘NHS track & trace’ in advance;
    • it guarantees you entry – ‘drop-in’ still carries a small risk that we’re full.

Looking forward to dancing that bit more ‘freely’ with you very soon 😀

With Love 
Jon, for Bernadette & team xxx

P.S. And re the unexpected outbreak of summer… we now have a couple of big fans to keep you cooler! 😉


  1. This is largely enabled by rising vaccination and testing rates. However, we need to continue to care for each other, so we request that you only attend if:
    • you are fully vaccinated,
    • you have had covid, confirmed by a positive PCR test in the last 180 days,
    • you have self-tested negative within 48 hours before the class.(This is based on the requirements for obtaining an NHS Covid Pass).
      ALSO if you or anyone in your household/immediate circle has symptoms which may be covid, obviously please don’t come.
      We recognise that people have very different feelings about these changes – the ‘personal responsibility’ focus of ‘Step 4’ includes asking that we all respect wherever others are at, in relation to distancing etc.
  2. Refunds are still only possible until the night before; please see updated T&Cs on website for full details.
  3. Our updated class guidelines in full are on our websites, and are based on:
    1. UKActive draft recommendations for sports/fitness providers under England’s Covid Roadmap Step 4;
    2. Our updated Risk Assessments for dancing in each of the venues we use.
