FOOT FUSION CLOSURE NOTICE

 

To Our FF Family

 

It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have decided to cease all classes at Foot Fusion School of Dance from Monday 23rd March. 

 

We would have had two weeks of lessons left before the scheduled Easter Break so for those that have already pre-paid for classes I will issue you with a voucher for your remaining amount and you will be able to use this towards lessons or uniform when we are up and running again.

 

We will continue to monitor the situation and follow any Government guidelines.

 

Please continue to follow our Members Only Page on Facebook and also this website (footfusionschoolofdance.com) for all updates. This will be updated as and when.

 

I will miss you all very much and I would love to hear from everyone during this difficult time.

 

IDTA have postponed all exam lessons until the end of April.

We will be taking exams at some point this year!!! Please bear with me whilst I get this sorted. 

 

I will look into the possibility of setting up online classes for exam work.

 

If you have any concerns please feel free to contact me.

If you have any outstanding bills can I please ask that these are paid for asap.

 

Thank you for your continued support, please keep in contact with us via social media. 

Stay safe FF Family & I hope to see you all very soon.

 

So much love

P.S. Our Senior Course will still be going ahead this weekend (21st/22nd March) … Lets finish on a high!

CORONAVIRUS - Statement from Foot Fusion School of Dance

Foot Fusion School of Dance will remain open for business until we feel it is no longer safe or we are advised otherwise by the Government.

The safety and wellbeing of our students is our primary concern and we are taking additional hygiene measures for the safety of our students, staff and parents/guardians.

At this stage, the Government is not closing schools. The advice is as follows:
Wash your hands - we would ask that everyone arriving on the premises washes their hands for 20 seconds with soap and water before going into class or waiting in the hub.

From today we will encourage our students to bring with them their own water bottle, own hand towel and payment for classes in an envelope with the correct money inside.

We will stop all partner work and do our very best to keep everyone in their own personal space when dancing.

My staff and I are doing our very best to keep things as normal as we can for our students.

 

We have had a lot of panicked little faces over the last few days so if we can keep things as normal as possible for them, for a couple of hours we will.

We are encouraging hand washing and we also offer out hand sanitizer.

This pandemic is going to have severe financial implications for us, we will do our best to keep going as long as we can.

 

If we do have to close down the school during term time then will gain back any missed weeks during the school holidays. This ensuring that we do not fall behind with any of our future events.


As a community, we really need to support one another during this difficult time. We are still going ahead with our Exams, Festivals and our Annual Show as planned so are continuing full steam ahead with all our preparations and event rehearsals. We will advise any changes as soon as we know of any.

If you feel unwell or have any symptoms of COVID-19 please do not visit us, follow NHS and government advice and get well soon. 

I would like to thank you for you continued support and hope it will continue through this time of uncertainty,

 

Stay Safe

Update - 13th March 2020

Following the Cobra meeting, the Government has moved from the 'Containment' to the 'Delay' phase of its strategies to deal with this pandemic. Delaying the infection rate is to allow the NHS to cope with the serious cases coming in smaller numbers.

This is a new disease to which we have no immunity so the majority of people who contract the virus will become infected and recover easily over several months. Although the Government is aware we would all rather get it over and done with, in this case the NHS just couldn't cope so please follow the advice given.


At this stage, the Government is not closing schools or any events. The advice is as follows:


Wash your hands - we would ask that everyone arriving on the premises washes their hands for 20 seconds with soap and water before going into class or waiting in the hub.
If you prefer, bring your own towel to dry your hands. We do change all of our towels daily and continue to spray surfaces which may carry the virus.


Should anyone experience a new dry cough or temperature, please stay at home for 7 days. You are most contagious for the first 4 days. You do not need to be tested should your symptoms remain mild and do not need to contact 111. Only if you become concerned about worsening symptoms do you need to call 111 or contact your GP for advice. Please use the internet for advice on the NHS site.
 

Please keep an eye on our social media pages and website in case the advice changes or classes need to be cancelled due to staff sickness.

If we do have to close down the school during term time then we will gain back any missed weeks during the school holidays. This is to ensure that we do not fall behind with any of our future events.


As a community, we really need to support one another during this difficult time. We are still going ahead with our Exams, Festivals and our Annual Show as planned so are continuing full steam ahead with all our preparations and event rehearsals. We will advise any changes as soon as we know of any.


Many thanks for your full co-operation in advance. Hygiene is our greatest protection.
 

Many thanks
Miss Penny
