Full COVID-Safe Measures for Events


Your Contact Details

As a condition of your booking, we will expect you to

  • Test for COVID-19 less than 24 hours before the event.
  • Notify us immediately if you have a positive covid test result after attending the event
  • Supply accurate email and phone contact information so we can notify you if somebody in your group tests positive

If anybody at the event 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 info@theswingdancecompany.co.uk if you receive a positive COVID-19 test result.  


Proof of Negative Test

Once you have conducted your COVID test, less than 24 hours before attendance, all attendees should log their negative results via the gov.uk website.

You will then receive a text message, email or notification on the NHS app, which you will need to present on arrival.

This should provide reassurance to all in attendance, that all others in attendance have made every effort to reduce the risks of transmitting the virus.


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. 

Refunds will be available up to 2 days before the event and tickets can be rolled over to a future event for anybody who has not attended (even without notifying us in advance).


Capacity & Distancing

Capacity will be reduced to allow more personal space.

A visual system will be employed to allow attendees to indicate whether they are comfortable or not being asked to dance, or with others coming close to their personal space.

However, there will be no formal social distancing requirement due to the nature of the event. The proof of negative lateral flow tests should provide reassurance to attendees of the safety of this event.


Arrival & Departure

Please allow extra time for arrival due to checking the proof of a negative test, and keep well spaced if queueing. Please use hand sanitization before, during and after this event.


Please Ensure You Register on Arrival

We need to know every person in attendance. The welcome team will have a register, either digital or paper, so please ensure they have noted your admittance.


Wearing of Face Coverings

The wearing of face coverings is now optional, please feel free to wear them for as much or as little as you are comfortable with. 


Other Things We Are Doing

  • No rotation during warm-up class
  • 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 or key staff are locked down or ordered to self-isolate then the event will be moved on to a future date.

If you, as an attendee, have tested positive, are told to self-isolate, have any COVID symptoms or are unwell you should not attend


We look forward to welcoming you to a safe and enjoyable event.
