BDI’s COVID Safe Plan & Risk Assessment

*UPDATE – 21 Oct 2020* Whilst our Kids & Teens classes and private lessons for all ages have resumed, under COVID-19 Restrictions and as per our Covid Safe Plan (attached below), some things need to be enforced:

  • do NOT attend if slightly unwell with cough, runny nose, or any other flu-like symptoms
  • to ensure we do not exceed maximum numbers in our various venues at one time, bookings for classes and private lessons are absolutely necessary (late cancellations will incur a late fee)
  • sign in and out will be required for tracing purposes via BDI’s Service NSW QR code (we keep an up-to-date spreadsheet) and students are requested to download the COVID Safe APP for additional tracing purposes
  • always wash/sanitise hands immediately before and after attending. Hand sanitiser will be available at venues.
  • parents should drop off and pickup or wait in car and students should not hang around to socialise before or after
  • bring your own water bottle, towel and come already dressed in your dancewear to reduce risks of transmission
  • payment is to be made by direct deposit upon receipt of an invoice
  • social distancing is still applicable until advised otherwise so watch your space
  • wearing a mask and gloves is not necessary but is acceptable if you prefer to wear these items
  • limit use of shared toilet facilities whenever possible even though every precaution will be taken to ensure regular cleaning and disinfecting
  • a maximum of 2 hrs can be allocated to students wishing to stay back and practice after a private lesson when possible (ie: when studio has not reached its maximum attendance limit)
  • partner dancing is allowed however partner rotation will not occur
  • Adult classes have been suspended however private lessons for adults are available
  • at-risk or compromised dancers should consider doing online lessons or attending at a designated “quiet” time in the studio

*UPDATE*Due to COVID-19 Restrictions, Term 2 classes and private lessons are limited to the following until 13 June 2020:
