Catch up Classes – Just a reminder that all classes must be paid for, even if you are absent. We offer a “Catch up Class” so you can do a similar class or try a different class for when you were away.

 

Private Facebook Group - Please join our “Official Barbara Easton Dance Studio” facebook page. This is a private page for our dance parents and students.

You can make comments, check our latest updates.

We often post videos of the kids dancing in class for you to view and your child to practice. If you have been trying to join our page without success please email or phone me, especially if you have a different last name to your child. (that I might not recognise)

 

INSTAGRAM - Please like or tag yourself in our pics and follow us at 'Barbaraeastondancestudio'

 

Winter Uniforms in Class – In cooler weather the students need warmer clothes for dancing. (We do have heated air conditioners) You can still wear your summer uniform but need to wear your own long sleeve plain white top under your uniform, or wear a black crossover which can be removed when they get too hot.

Jumpers and jackets are not to be worn in class as they are bulky and the teachers cannot see the dancers’ body to correct posture, deportment and arm movements.

Pink or tan dance tights can also be worn under your uniform. We sell these for $12.

 

STUDIO JACKETS

If you would like to order a studio jacket with our logo on the front and back please ask David in the office. $45. These jackets are larger than average for their size. We have jackets available now.

 

New Showgroup Members - We are always on the lookout for more students to join our Showgroup. We perform around the local area in clubs, and shopping centres. If you are interested, you must be taking as many dance classes as possible to reach the required standard. Plus we are looking for bright and confident personalities with big smiles.

                                                                     COVID-19 SAFE PLAN

 

·        If your child is old enough please drop off and pick up. Make sure they have a drink and some snacks if they are in 2 or more classes. These should not be shared with other students.

·        Kristine will be at our front door for parents who need to come in, to sign their name and mobile phone number. You can bring your own pen if preferred. We will also have hand sanitiser at the door. Please also wash your hands when leaving home.

·        If your child is in the Pre school class or is very young, then ONLY ONE PARENT is to come into the studio. No siblings are allowed to stay in the waiting rooms.  .

·        The upstairs entrance will be closed on Saturdays.

·        Parents please do not see David unless you need shoes, uniform or to pay fees in cash. Online Payments are preferred during this time.   

·        Parents who paid for Term 1 will have their classes credited as we had to close our studio before the end of Term.

·        We are looking to hold normal dance classes over the July school holidays, as so many lessons were missed. Please confirm if your child is available to attend classes on the following dates in the holidays Tues 7th, Thurs 9th, Sat 11th, Tues 14th & Thurs 16th July.

·        We will continue to take every health and safety precaution at our studio in regards to the Corona Virus (COVID-19

·        Students and Parents must wash their hands before and after class. We also have disinfectant and sanitiser available at the studio, or you can bring your own wipes etc.

·        The studio will be wiped down with disinfectant. This will be done throughout the day. We have adjusted our classes to ensure that students will not be holding hands.

·        Any props used in class will be cleaned after use.

·        Any coughs or sneezes should be done into the student/parents elbows and not in their hands (please encourage your child to do this at home too).

·         Please don't send your child to the studio if they, or a family member is sick. If your child is missing from class due to an illness they will be able to do catch-up classes afterwards. The well being of our students and families is a top priority.

·         Waiting room chairs will still be spaced further apart. Dancers will also be be spaced further apart on the barre and when in the centre.

·         There will be no coffee or magazines available.

·         Our timetable had to be altered for some classes as we have a limit on class sizes in the small studio.

 

Looking forward to meeting you,

Barbara, David, Bronte, Kelvin, Bella and Liana
