COVID-Safe Measures for SwingJive Courses - Updated December 2021
In order to run our classes in the safest practical way, we are implementing the following measures and guidance:
Your Contact Details
As a condition of your booking, we will expect you to:
- Supply accurate email and phone contact information so we can notify you if somebody in your group tests positive
- Notify us immediately if you have a positive covid test result
If anybody in your group tests positive and informs us, we will inform you directly and we will encourage you to take your own tests. We will not be sharing your data with any 3rd party contacting system, such as NHS Test & Trace.
Please inform us at email@example.com if you receive a positive COVID-19 test result.
Don’t Attend If…
You or anyone you live with is feeling ill or has COVID symptoms, or has tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 10 days. Or if you or anyone you live with might be susceptible or has a weakened immune system.
Distancing in Class
We will encourage a spacing of at least 1 metre between you and anybody who is not in your household. Please aim to keep at least 1 metres apart from everybody except your dance partner.
Arrival & Departure
Please aim to keep a 1-metre distance from everybody outside of your household on arrival and departure. If waiting for your class to start, please consider whether you can wait outdoors rather than indoors.
Please Ensure You Register
We need to know every person in attendance at any class. Your instructor has a register, either digital or paper, so please ensure they have noted your presence.
Dance on Your Spot
Capacities will be limited so we can maintain 1-metre distances between each couple and help with ventilation. Please check your position and make sure you don’t get too close to a neighbouring couple.
Wearing of Face Coverings
Please wear face coverings on arrival and whilst travelling through communal areas.
The wearing of face coverings for exercise activities is optional, please feel free to wear them for as much or as little as you are comfortable with.
Your teacher is unlikely to wear a face-covering during the lesson as it will limit their ability to communicate.
Other Things We Are Doing
- Wiping down surfaces
- Lowering music levels to reduce the need for projection when speaking.
- External doors/windows will be open wherever possible to increase airflows.
What Happens If...
If the local area, venue, teacher or demonstrator are locked down or ordered to self-isolate then the course will be paused until we can resume.
If you, as an attendee, have tested positive, are told to self-isolate, have any COVID symptoms or are unwell you should not attend.
Everybody will be enrolled on the equivalent online classes, so you can continue to learn and keep up even if you need to self-isolate.
The free repeat course guarantee will continue to be available too, but refunds won't be available.
