Delighted to announce the gradual resuming of live ballet classes at the reopened United Reformed Church Hall (URC) this summer…
Following a couple of successful trial classes in the Hall, here is a schedule of Ballet in Small Spaces classes going forward for July. These are all at Intermediate to Advanced level, and are hybrid classes that can be attended either in person or online. I am reverting to the days and times of classes before the pandemic – please read carefully and put in your diary. Please note that there will be no Monday class on 12th July because of the DANSOX Summer School.
Monday 5th July: 5.45-7.15pm Intermediate
Thursday 8th July: 10.00-11.30am Advanced
Thursday 15th July: 10.00-11.30am Advanced
Saturday 17th July: 11.30-1.00pm Intermediate/Advanced
Monday 19th July: 5.45-7.15pm Intermediate
Thursday 22nd July: 10.00-11.30am Advanced
Saturday 24th July: 11.30-1.00pm Intermediate/Advanced
Monday 26th July: 5.45-7.15pm Intermediate
Thursday 29th July: 10.00-11.30am Advanced
Because of Covid safety protocols and the need to maintain some social distancing, there is currently a limit of 9 people who can attend in person; so those attending the Hall will need to register in advance; please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to specify the dates you would like to attend. Once you have registered, if for any reason it turns out that you cannot attend, please let me know soonest so that your place could be taken by someone else. For online attendance please email me to receive a Zoom invitation.
The cost for attending in person will revert to the pre-pandemic price of £10 per class, but online attendance will continue to cost £7. The BiSS loyalty card scheme whereby those attending in person and paying £10 per class get their 10th class free will be resumed.
I plan to take a brief break in the first week of August, but then to continue offering classes, to allow us to make the most of finally being able to dance back in a studio rather than at home, and also of summer weather, given that we will need to keep windows open for maximum ventilation! In order to be able to schedule viably for August it would be really helpful if people could let me know whether they are interested in continuing to take class over what is normally a holiday period. I am also thinking of resuming additional pointe work sessions after Thursday and Saturday morning classes; so please let me know if these might be of interest. I hope that it may also be possible to invite a couple of guest teachers over this summer period.
Looking forward to seeing you in class, either online or in person!
