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:
You must pre-book and pay for your classes using the booking system in order to help manage our reduced capacity.
UPDATE TO CANCELLATION POLICY
If you are unable to attend a group class or private class or studio hire 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 class. Due to the reduced class size, after this time you’ll loose the class.
Social distancing guidelines will apply at all times. Please maintain distance of at least 1 metre+ between yourself and other attendees including when entering and exiting the studio. The studio has been marked out to allow for this.
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.
1 PER POLE
In keeping with social distancing guidelines, classes are 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!
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.
You will be allocated a space for your pole class 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.
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 class, please wear socks, trainers or heels.
WASH YOUR HANDS
Please ensure you wash your hands before coming to class, the hand sanitiser by the door to the studio must be used before and after class.
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 class or the end of your session.
Instructors will not be able to spot you during class due to social distancing measures. Please ensure you train with care, caution and within your limits.
You will be allocated a pole upon arrival inside the studio, it will be yours for the duration of the class. Please ensure you stay in your area at all times to adhere to the social distancing rules. 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.
NO SHOUTING OR SINGING
Government has advised that singing or shouting can increase the risk of Covid-19. To minimise this risk, the music will be slightly lower volume during class.
ease ensure you thoroughly wipe down and sanitise the pole and floor using the sprays and blue towel provided. After the class please leave the studio immediately, save the socialising for outside ;-)
All door handles, countertops and other common surfaces in the studio will be disinfected between classes. A log documenting the cleaning of all surfaces and equipment will also be maintained.
