We have been working hard with some new and existing venues to get your children and teenagers back in the studio. Your health, and the health of our instructors is our priority. To make sure we keep everyone in our classes as safe as possible we are closely following the government and Public Health England’s guidance, and will be employing the following measures:

  • limited class sizes
  • social distancing in all venues
  • hand sanitisers in all venues
  • entrance and exit procedures to ensure your safety before and after class
  • sanitising of studios between each class
  • online opportunities for adults (18+) and those who don’t feel comfortable returning to a studio
