2020 Evening Classes
Term 4 will begin on Thursday 15 October, and, COVID)19 permitting, will run for 10 weeks up to 17 December, just one week before Christmas Eve.
Our distanced dancing and exercising solo under a COVID-19 Safe Plan, proved worthwhile in Term 3, so we plan to continue with physical distancing (hands free of course), observing the usual hygiene precautions and subject to the advice of the NSW Department of Health. 
It is essential that you let us know if you'd like to come along, as we need to limit numbers & to have contact details. We recommend wearing a mask when travelling on public transport, and in class if you prefer to do so, as well as using hand sanitiser regularly, and having the COVIDSafe app active on your phone. Bring your own water and snacks, and get a COVID-19 test and stay home if you are at all unwell, or have been exposed to any recent contact, hotspot or travel risks.
See Classes for more info & Schedule for dates & details (2020 Brochure).
