Bernadette’s Back – and Friday Classes Update

Bernadette’s Back – and Friday Classes Update

Dear Dancers

After an eventful few weeks, I’m delighted to share that Bernadette returns to our Friday nights this week. Huge gratitude to Dawn and Neil for fab classes* we had a lot of fun – but… Bernadette, we’ve missed you – Welcome Back 🙂

Booking has been brisk (this week’s is just ‘taking off’) and classes have been FULL, with queues for returns and ‘no shows’. While we’ve not actually had to turn anyone away (yet), do book in advance if you can and, whether you’ve booked or just turn up, don’t be late. We really do start at 8:30pm, and at 8:45pm any unclaimed places are given to any waiting ‘drop-in’ dancers.

And finally, a quick shout-out to our invaluable support team(s) who just get slicker all the time. In another step towards ‘normality’, Fleur is co-ordinating a group of creative souls who are adding more beauty and energy to the space with themed altar spaces most weeks

Looking forward to connecting with Your beauty and energy on the dance floor soon.

With Love,
Jon, for Bernadette & team xxx

*P.S. Thanks to Jean Rankin too, for holding our Thursday night closed group sessions.

  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.
