We are working closely with Fairfield Halls to restart SLiDE in-person classes in September. Some of our Zoom sessions will continue throughout the coming months, so please look out for updates on our Facebook page and Twitter.
WHERE & WHEN WILL CLASSES TAKE PLACE?
We will be returning to classes in September on Tuesdays (10.45-12pm) and Wednesdays (1.45-3pm). These are open to anyone who would like to join us, but you will need to book your space in advance.
Classes will be in The Recreational at Fairfield Halls, which is one of the biggest studios, so there will be plenty of room for moving together.
HOW DO I BOOK A CLASS?
Unfortunately we can’t allow people to ‘drop in’ to one of our sessions, as we need to keep a close eye on who is coming.
You can book a class in advance by calling us on 07860 763799 (Monday-Wednesday 10am-5pm) or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our sessions are currently £5 and paid for via bank transfer.
Classes will be booked in groups of no more than 10 people and these groups will remain in the same bubble for the duration of the term.
Every person booking will need to provide a mobile number and willing to join a WhatsApp group for that class. This is so we can quickly share important information with everyone.
A self-declaration form must be completed and submitted online prior to returning to SLiDE. If a self-declaration form has not been received participants will unfortunately be unable to dance.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM A SLiDE CREATIVE DANCE SESSION?
The SLiDE team have been working hard to ensure that we have measures in place to make our sessions as safe as possible. This will include temperature checks, hand sanitising stations and dancing in smaller groups. Our teachers will also change the style of the classes slightly to allow for the current circumstances. You may therefore find the sessions will be of a lower intensity with no group or floor work for example.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF WE GO BACK INTO LOCKDOWN?
If lockdown happens again we will continue sessions on Zoom. We have received a good response to our online classes and will continue providing these for as long as we need to!
We look forward to welcoming you back to sessions again soon. If you have any questions then please contact Gemma on 07887 781361 or Emily on 07860 763799.
