Covid 2020 / 21
2nd DECEMBER, 2020 UPDATE:
Once the North East moves into Tier 2, we will again be offering Discounted Private Lessons out of Harbottle Village Hall. NE65 7DG.
1st SEPTEMBER, 2020 UPDATE:
Thank you to everyone who has contacted us regards our classes.
We have been working on a plan to get some lessons up and running. Due to current Government Guidelines, we cannot at this time offer group classes. We have now heard back from various halls, and have an understanding of the rules each hall has in place.
We have decided to begin with Private Lessons only, out of Harbottle Hall.
We will continue to gauge interest in St Michaels as a venue for Group classes. If you would be interested in group classes at St Michaels (once guidelines permit), we ask that you email us to let us know. We have set up a wait list. Classes will no doubt be restricted to a max number, hence the wait list.
WHAT WE CAN OFFER NOW:
2x Singles (who have formed a bubble).
* We cannot partner with single dancers at this current time as social distancing must still be maintained. But, there are some options to consider for singles who wish to dance.
We have decided to discount the Private Lesson cost to £20 per hour (Regular £30).
We are still very restricted, hence the decision to teach out of Harbottle Hall at a discounted rate. We apologise if this news brings disappointment. We too are super disappointed. This is a difficult time for everyone and we appreciate everyones patience. We cannot wait, to one day, when we can get back to our regular class schedule.
PRIVATE 1-TO-1 LESSONS
Our Private Lessons offer complete flexibility to accommodate your schedule. 1-to-1 lessons offer focused teaching, and an opportunity to choose your lesson material, and accelerate your learning.
16th DECEMBER, 2020 UPDATE:
Although expected, the 16th December Rule Review was a disappointment. We await the next review to see if we will be able to move back to the point of being able to offer 1-to-1 private tuition again. We are also looking into offering Zoom lessons whilst waiting for a Tier 2 announcement.
22nd FEBRUARY, 2021 UPDATE:
We are encouraged by todays announcement and feel hopeful that private lessons will be able to resume again starting 17th May. We will continue to monitor rules and guidelines but will be taking bookings for private lessons within the next week to begin on 17th May. We hope to see everyone soon. It's been a very long year.
27th MARCH, 2021 UPDATE:
We remain optimistic regards private lessons recommencing on 17th May. Please contact us if you would like to book some private tuition. We will continue to offer the discounted rate of £20 for lessons taught out of Harbottle Village Hall until our normal schedule is back in place.
We have decided to hold off from scheduling group classes but remain hopeful that group classes may be able to restart again in June.
8th JUNE, 2021 UPDATE:
Sadly, due to government guidelines, our group dance classes will now resume 25th July.
Our new schedule will remain the same as previously detailed, but will now begin 4 weeks later than planned. Sorry folks.
SEPTEMBER 2021 UPDATE:
We are extremely happy to announce that lessons will be resuming this month! Please check our schedule for dates and information.
