Safely Distanced Dance Classes are now available on Saturdays at our Laban studios for a limited number of participants, aged 8 – 14yrs.

Classes will operate at a reduced capacity in line with government’s guidance for children’s indoor activities, with a maximum of 15 spaces per class.  All classes will be first come-first served.

We are, regrettably, unable to bring all Children’s Classes back to the studio as we cannot safely enable all four hundred families to return to the building.  Digital Dance Classes will continue for participants aged 4 – 7yrs.

For participants aged 11 – 18yrs, you may also be interested in our midweek Dance Classes for Young People.

Timetable & Booking: Summer Block 2

Importantly:

  • Capacity in each studio is reduced to a maximum of 15 dancers
  • Participants have a 2metre square dance space, market with tape on the floor
  • Parents and carers cannot enter the Laban Building
  • Participants need to be dropped off and collected at the path leading up to the Laban Building entrance, within the grounds
  • Children will be greeted an arrival by Trinity Laban staff, and following a temperature check and signing in, they will be guided to their studio where they will be supervised by the class teacher
  • Following the class, children will be guided back to the exit for collection just outside the building, on the path within the grounds
  • If you give permission for your child to travel home alone, please indicate this within your booking

FAQs

Does my child need to have been previously enrolled on the Children's Programme to join Safely Distanced Dance Classes?

Our Safely Distanced Dance Classes are initially available to participants who had attended studio classes (prior to pandemic) and/or digital classes.  Booking will open to the general public from 12 Apr, if places remain.

 

My child is enrolled on the Children's Programme. If we do not book the Safely Distanced Dance Classes, will my child lose their place on the normal programme?

Our Safely Distanced Dance Classes are for a limited time only, until it is safe for all programmes to return to the studios.

Participating in Safely Distanced Dance Classes will be on a first come-first served basis.  This will not relate to enrolment in our normal programme.

 

Can my child do a taster session before booking a block?

No. Our Safely Distanced Dance Classes must be pre-booked in half term blocks. Summer Block 1 is for 6 weeks.

 

Are classes refundable?

We are unable to offer refunds for our Children’s classes.

 

What measures have been put in place to ensure the safety of my child during the Safely Distanced Dance Class?

There are lots of measures in place to keep everyone safe.  Please read them in full.  Watch this short video about arriving and exiting our building and studios safely.

 

When will the normal Children's Programme resume?

We hope to resume our usual Children’s Programme as soon as it’s safe to have all four hundred of our participants and their families back in our building.  We will communicate with all families that would be re-enrolling in the Children’s Programme when it is clear that we are able to re-open in our usual format.
