Back to school and back to the studio! Yes, you read that right. First Dance Studios is now OPEN back at the wonderful Heather Farm, at the Prime Acrobatics Centre, Woking Surrey. We are so happy to present a new daily timetable of classes for all levels and experience of dance so please do check out the new timetable. Many of your usual studios classes will be back live from the dance floor. There have been some changes due to COVID-19 restrictions but have a look and see where your favourite classes are.
Please note that First Dance Studios has strict COVID-19 restrictions in place so please read details here as well as this video that walks you through the whole journey into and back out of the studio itself.
Emma, Karen and a few others have spent a good few weeks sorting out the guidelines, marking up the studio, testing new equipment and ok yes, having a little dance at being able to be back on the dance floor. It has been a little like trying to play 4D chess underwater while tap dancing on a surf board at the same time. The tap dancing we can do, the rest of it has required many concentrated furrowed brows, drafts upon drafts of time slots and counting to 10 instead of 8!
We’ve dotted all the I’s we could find, crossed the T’s while having a few cuppas of those as well, ensured that we have enough hand sanitising gel, drawn up guidelines, had the studio officially safety risk assessed to doubly ensure that you have your dance space and we have our dance space. We’ve walked through how it will all work, asking ourselves many questions and we’ve ensured everything that is under our control we’ve thought of. Everything is subject to change but we are keeping our eye on information daily so as and when things change we will update the studio and our information channels so you will be in the know.
We can’t wait to see you dance with us again and we have missed you all very much. So if you’ve danced a hole into your living room carpet or banged a limb into a kitchen cabinet. Or stepped on your kitty cats tail as you’ve tried to do a Rumba while at home dancing then check into the Mindbody App and take your pick of the classes.
We know that for some of you, coming into the studio isn’t yet an option. But don’t worry, we’ve still got you covered with Livestream and Zoom Classes dotted throughout the week. So classes that are live that can you stream from the comfort of your home.
And even if you can’t make those, we can always send you a pre-record. Please get in touch and we can help you out with LIVESTREAM CLASSES. Please refrain from using Mindbody to book onto Zoom classes. Sophie, our wonderful Zumba and HIIT teacher has created a short tutorial video to watch here.
So dust off your ballet, tap or jazz shoes and come and join us, from the safe and socially distant dance floor of the studio or from the comfort of your kitchen, living room or garden. Come and join us whenever and however you like.
First Dance, For All.
