*UPDATED* Guest teachers – Jean Rankin & Dawn Morgan

Dear Dancers,

We have two wonderful guest teachers and friends taking our classes this week and next, while Bernadette is away. Each brings their own playfulness and depth attracting loyal followings on their ‘home patches’ – and both love Friday 5 Rhythms in Bristol 🙂

Update: For reaons beyond our control, Dawn will now take both Friday classes, and Jean both the Thursday night sessions of our Rhythm Circle closed group. We are grateful to both for making this work at short notice when circumstances changed 🙂

Dawn Morgan (Stroud/Lune Valley)

Friday Sept 24th (open/drop-in)
Friday Oct 1st (open/drop-in)

(More about Dawn)

Jean Rankin (Glastonbury)

Rhythm Circle (closed group)
Thurs Sept 23rd & 30th

Where and when – Friday Open / Drop-in Classes:

Horfield Parish Church Hall, Wellington Hill, BS7
Friday nights, 8:30 – 10:30pm

As usual… open to all, pre-booked or drop-in; it’s still cheaper to book in advance but if you prefer to be spontaneous – just turn up.

N.B. class starts at 8:30 – please be on time, for your own benefit and for the group as a whole; doors close at 8:45; please note directions, if this is your first time dancing at this venue.

We look forward very much to dancing with you soon.

With Love 
Jon, for Bernadette, Jean, Dawn & team xxx

  1. Our returning to ‘normal’ 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 the rule changes; the emphasis on ‘personal responsibility’ includes asking that we all respect wherever others are at, in relation to distancing etc. 
  2. You can transfer your booking to another date until noon on the day; refunds are still only possible until 24 hours 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 Roadmaps;
    2. Our updated Risk Assessments for dancing in each of the venues we use.
