Please let the ticket office know if your child has any additional needs, if you feel comfortable in doing so. If your child has an injury or an existing medical condition we would recommend that you seek professional advice before they attend a class.

Studio classes must follow social distancing rules, please keep a 2 metre distance where possible. Due to reduced capacity studio class tickets are very limited. This is a hybrid class. Some people will be taking part in the studio with social distancing, while some will be taking part at home via Zoom. There will be a camera and screen in the studio live streaming the class into Zoom participants’ homes.

Masks must be worn around the Dance City building which you may remove once inside the studio. There is a possibility that you will be asked to keep your mask on during class. Go straight to your studio when you arrive, and show your E-ticket to the teacher using your phone or print out from home. The café remains closed for now. Drinking fountains, lockers and showers are currently out of use to reduce risk of contamination. Please bring your own bottles of water, yoga mats, dance shoes and any other items as Dance City cannot supply these.
