Dancing at Horfield Parish Church Hall

Horfield-Hall

Welcome to our lovely new venue!

We are excited to have found Horfield Parish Church Hall, just off Gloucester Road, as the venue for our Friday night classes – it’s a fine hall, with high ceiling, good ventilation, and a beautiful sprung wooden dance floor. We look forward very much to dancing with you there.

Please take some moments to read our new guidelines (some practical things have changed since March!) … and of course, how to get there 🙂

If you’re joining us ‘Online’, please see ‘On Zoom‘.

PLEASE READ: Guidelines for new normal…

To ensure that we all get the best out of our opportunity to dance together again 🙂

  • The class starts at 8:30pm sharp, and finishes at 10:30pm.
    Since we have to check everyone in, it is now essential that you arrive on time. Thank you.
  • Please bring your own water.
  • The total numbers in the class will be limited, based on official guidelines for exercise spaces.
  • We shall be working with distance awareness – which is in any case, simply an extension/application of a core aspect of 5 Rhythms practice 🙂
    Specifically:
    • please observe the usual social distancing protocols;
    • once inside the venue, please greet with a smile across our safe space;
    • we shall not be working with physical contact at all.
  • Commonly touched surfaces (doorhandles etc) will be sanitised in advance; hand sanitiser and paper towels/tissues will be available.
  • Wearing a face covering is your own choice, but please note that wearing a mask during exercise is not recommended in the English government guidelines. Having said that…
  • For those who find vocal expression is habitually a part of your dance, it is important that you bring a scarf or mask specifically for that purpose so you are sounding through a soft barrier.
  • We are livestreaming the class via Zoom, for wider accessibility, especially for those who cannot attend in person. Online participants agree on booking not to record the session in any way (audio or visual). There is also an area of the dance floor not visible on Zoom.

And for the usual hints and tips…

Please see “What to bring, wear, do, avoid…” (written before the world turned upside down!)
