How classes will work - As we slowly return, so will the number of classes, hours etc. Our classes are currently limited to an hour, with a maximum of 12 people able to attend each class - no spectators or drop ins, this is to help stop the spread of COVID-19 by minimising contact. Each attendee will have their own box on the dance floor which will be theirs and theirs alone for that class. Each space is available to pre-book via our booking system below - if you do NOT pre-book you will be denied access.
How to book & pay for a class - There are a few ways you'll be able to pay for a class prior or on arrival, see below;
1. Pay online, choose the class you'd like to attend and pay before you arrive.
2. Select "Pay in Person" where you will be able to pay on arrival either contactless or cash. Please note: if you are paying by cash, correct money has to be sealed in an envelope with your name and membership number.
If you do not wish to book a slot via our website you can contact us via email, telephone or social media.
Arriving - We advise that you arrive no earlier than 10 minutes before the class start time, if however you do arrive earlier then we ask that you remain in your car until indicated otherwise. When arriving we encourage social distancing, we’ve provided outside markers (bollards), if queuing is necessary - please only queue with a member of your household or bubble. We ask that all wear a face covering whilst entering the building and use the social distancing markers inside while waiting to be checked in. There will be various hand sanitisers located around the building for you to use - including one in reception area. Each will have their own chair (same household or bubble will be seated together), this is where your personal belongs will be kept throughout the duration of the class. Personal belongings include; hand/man bag, shoe bag, drinks bottle and face covering, any other belongings should remain in your car.
During - On your first visit, before we begin class we will take you through our rules and guidelines including use of toilets, getting on and off the dance floor etc. This is also a great opportunity to ask any questions you may have, we want you to feel as safe as possible. There will be 12 squares on the dance floor, one for each attendee. Each will be able to choose their own dancing square, which will be their square for the entire of the class. Cassey will remain on the stage at all times during the class (unless for a toilet break) and will not leave for any one to one help on the dance floor. Remember to take your face covering off before you begin dancing, preferably leaving it on your chair with your other personal belongings.
We want to create as much of a “normal” dancing atmosphere as possible however your safety is important. We’d advise that you keep interaction with others not in your household or bubble to a minimum including talking while resting and singing loudly during class. We understand that this can sometimes be hard to achieve as we are all sociable however we ask that you try your best. If you do not abide by these rules and guidelines, you may be asked to leave.
Class will begin to wrap up but before it finishes we will give a dance debrief, for those wanting to make a note of any of the dances we taught throughout the class. This is also a great opportunity to request a dance you may have been wanting to learn or need a recap.
After - After class has finished, we advise that everyone vacate the premise as soon as they possibly can and keep social distancing in place inside as well as outside, please do not have a “catch up” in the carpark. We allocate 10 minutes after class has fully finished for this to happen.
We will then begin our cleaning and disinfecting process.
Checking In - Once you have made your online booking and received your confirmation email, your place will be secured. On arrival you will be greeted and checked in by Courtney, this is also where you’ll be able to pay for class, if you haven’t online already. We will accept contactless & cash payments, if you are paying by cash you will be asked to drop the envelope in a box as you enter. Once you’re all checked in, you will be able to find yourself a chair and get ready for class to begin. If there is any missing personal information that we will need in case of a breakout, during check in is where we will ask for that information.
Toilets - Our toilets are open for our dancers to use throughout the class. However they are limited to one person at a time. We ask that you wash down the taps after use and you use the wipes provided to wipe down door handles or anything you may have touched. There will be a bin located outside the toilets to discard any tissues or wipes, there will also be hand sanitiser for you to use. Once class has finished and everyone has safely vacated the premises, we will begin to thorough clean of the toilets, taps and other surfaces that may have been exposed to the virus.
Our Cleaning - Once everyone has left the premises, we will begin our “After Class” cleaning and disinfecting regime, including cleaning doors, door handles, chairs, tables, sanitiser dispensers, payment facilities, toilet area and any other surfaces that could have been touched or potentially exposed to the virus. After the day our deep clean process will begin where we’ll clean frequently touched surfaces, the dance floor, all surfaces around the premises as well as door handles, sanitiser dispensers, chair, tables, etc.
Our Promise - Our objective is to reduce the risk of COVID-19 to the lowest level that is reasonably practical by taking preventative measures. These include implementing social distancing inside and out of the premises, full cleaning and sterilising of chairs, door handles, toilets etc. Creating floor markings on the dance floor to make it as easy as possible to keep distant from others. We will keep track of everyone who enters and exits the premises, with the following information; name, telephone number, enter and exit time and date. To keep the number of daily visitors to a limit, we are not allowing any spectators or visitors, this also applies to those wishing to visit another dancer they may not have seen in a while. If we are notified that a member or staff member has/is infected with COVID-19, we will pass your information on to the test and trace team where you may be contacted via them if you have been in recent contact with the particular person. This also may mean the club would have to close to self-isolate. If this is the case all booked classes would be rescheduled or refunded. All of the above is to keep you and us as safe as possible, the safety of everyone during classes is our main priority.
Our Consequence - If YOU do not help us abide by the Governments Rules & Guidelines, this could lead to the closure of the Culpeppers Club or as per Government guidance “serious breaches and failure to comply with enforcement notices can constitute a criminal offence with fines and even imprisonment for up to 2 years”. We take the rules & guidelines very seriously and will not tolerate any behaviour that could lead to any breaches.
What Can & Can’t I Bring - To help limit the spread of coronavirus, we have put together a list of what you can and can’t bring with you to one of our line dance classes;
Own Drink - this is as our bar will be closed for the time being.
Personal hand sanitiser.
Food - of any kind.
Personal Fans (hand or electric) - this is to limit to risk of spreading COVID-19.
All rules & guidelines are subject to change & update.
