We are offering some studio with limited spaces available for each course to adhere to the current advisory, so do sign up and confirm your place with payment before the course is fully subscribed! The sessions would function like a small group private with classes catered to the participants and more personal attention given to the students given the small class size.
As the safety of our students and teachers during this period of time is a priority for us, and after checking in with the relevant agencies and authorities who have provided us with the necessary precautions and considerations for safe management measures, we are excited to resume restricted partner dances. We still aim to minimise contact, which means we will be doing some solo and non-contact exercises but we will also re-connect with a partner.
Do note that partnered courses are non-rotational and you have to sign up with a partner – it doesn’t have to be a guy and a girl, but one must be a lead and one a follow and if you’ve difficulty finding a partner but are keen to join in, let me know, and we will try and pair you up with someone else looking for a partner but we advise that you find and work with someone you’re comfortable with.
Do note also that
– Couples will be socially distanced from each other
– The use of mask before, during and after class is mandatory
– Students will be asked to sanitise their hands before, during and after class
