On 17 September the government announced a range of new rules designed to combat the increase in cases of Covid 19 in the North East region. These measures mainly restrict socialisation between households. Having carefully reviewed the new North East lockdown rules, Dance City remains open! We are delighted to be welcoming people into the Dance City building to engage in dance again.

The recent ‘rule of 6’ Covid 19 regulations around social gatherings, came into force from 14 September. The activities we are offering at Dance City are still permitted as they fall into the following exempt category:

  • organised indoor and outdoor sports, physical activity and exercise classes

The new rules announced on 17 September ban people from meeting with others from outside of their own households or support bubbles in private homes and gardens, unless for specific purposes.

A support bubble allows a single-adult household to join with one other household of any size.

Residents are also advised not to socialise with other people outside of their own households or bubbles in all public venues.

You can go to the gym, fitness classes, or to a swimming pool as long as those venues have the required Covid-secure risk assessments and guidelines in place.

You can find out more about the latest government guidelines here.

What we are doing to keep everyone at Dance City safe

Our team has been working hard to make sure that everyone who enters our building stays as safe as possible from Coronavirus. This has involved a thorough risk assessment, staff training, and investment in new equipment and facilities. Please read our guide to Staying Safe at Dance City before booking or visiting our building.

Public Classes

Our classes planning team have worked tirelessly to realise a safe and socially distanced public class timetable which launched on 7 September. Most classes are ‘hybrid’ meaning they are available to take part ‘in the room or on zoom’. Our customers are delighted to be able to dance (safe and socially distanced) again in our studios, and for those who prefer to join from home, the zoom option is hugely popular. We have adapted our website so that people can use the search filter ‘online classes’ to book these and they are ‘pay as you feel’ and can be accessed free of charge all season so there’s no reason to miss out! Book Now

We understand that people need more flexibility right now, so we’ve relaxed our 24 hour cancellation policy so that you can cancel your class and receive a refund up to 1 hour before the class with no quibbles.
