WAREHOUSE COVID-19 POLICY
Warehouse Dance Studios are very excited to welcome everyone back to the studios.
In line with Government guidelines, we have prepared the studio and created new policies to reduce the risk of Covid-19. The guidelines are based on safe working published by Gov UK, Specific guidance for the industry, new cleaning guidelines and consultation with local businesses and instructors.
To keep all students and instructors at the studio safe, we have implemented the following changes to all group and private classes as well as individual studio hire:
You must pre-book and pay for your studio hire by using the booking system in order to help manage who attends the studios and our reduced capacity.
UPDATE TO CANCELLATION POLICY
If you are unable to attend your studio hire session please email us as soon as possible. If you cancel at least 24 hours before the class you will be able to reschedule to another date. After this time you’ll loose the booking and no refund will be offered.
Social distancing guidelines will apply at all times. Please maintain distance of at least 1 metre+ between yourself and anyone you see in the building.
When classes reopen, please ensure you leave straight after the class has finish and do not hang around chatting after to avoid crossover to the next classes arrival.
CHOOSE YOUR POLE
In keeping with social distancing guidelines, we ask that you stick to one pole during your studio hire session.
When classes reopen they will be limited to 1 person per pole which means 3 students and 1 pole for the instructor. You will be allocated a pole upon arrival.
PLEASE BE ON TIME!
Please ensure you arrive for your studio hire session at the allotted time, if you are late, your session cannot be extended, you will just loose that amount within your booked session.
Applies to classes only
Arrive at the studio 5 minutes before the class is due to start. Please remain in your car until 5 minutes before the start of class to avoid cross over from previous classes. Please do not be late, classes will start on time, if you think you are going to be late please notify the instructor immediately. It is the instructor's descretion as to whether they permit late-comers into their class.
The studio has been marked out so that you have an allocated a space for your pole session with a marked out area for your belongings. Please keep belongings to a minimum eg. 1 small bag of belongings. Please ensure you take all belongings with you at the end. Anything left will be removed and destroyed.
ARRIVE WITH POLE CLOTHES ON
Please ensure you already have your polewear on underneath your clothes to minimise the amount of belongings you bring with you. Avoid bare feet during where you can, please wear socks, heels or trainers.
WASH YOUR HANDS
Please ensure you wash your hands before coming to your pole session, the hand sanitiser by the door to the studio must be used before and after class, there is also hand sanitiser inside the studio to use during the session.
Please bring your own yoga mat for classes. Do not leave your yoga mat in the studio. All personal belonging must be taken with you at the end of your session.
YOUR POLE AREA
Once you have chosen your pole, it will be yours for the duration of the class. Please ensure you stay in your area at all times to limit the amount you will need to clean after your session. Each pole will have its own cleaning station containing paper towel, and spray (for the pole and floor) your belongings should also stay in this marked out space. Once your session is finished, we ask that you clean anything that you have touched in the studio including the door handle, light switch, stereo and air con.
Please ensure you thoroughly wipe down and sanitise the pole and floor using the antibacterial spray and blue towel provided. There is a bin in the studio with a bin liner, please take this bin liner with your used towels with you and dispose of the bin bag in your own personal waste. After your session, please check the window is closed and air con is turned off, the lights are switched off and the power is turned off at the switches.
We ask that you clean anything you have touched in the studio with the antibacterial spray and paper towels provided in your pole space to protect others when they use the space after you.
All door handles, countertops and other common surfaces in the studio will be disinfected weekly while studio hire is in place. A log documenting the cleaning of all surfaces and equipment will also be maintained.
When classes resume instructors will be given checklist of tasks to be completed before and after each class to ensure that all items on the risk assessment are addressed. The studio will remain stocked with appropriate disinfectants for all surfaces and equipment. The full Cleaning Policy can be found here
