 COVID PRECAUTIONS

Since we cautiously reopened dancing in July, we have adopted precautions based on legislation and also guidance. We realise for some people these are too much and for some others they are too little. We do not wish to keep these for longer than is necessary but we also have a responsibility to try to keep Dancing and the Wider Economy open and safe as possible.

So as per booking conditions on booking form, participation at the event is conditional on the following:

 

OBLIGATORY TO PARTICIPATE:

All participants MUST have EITHER proof of Covid Vaccination (s) OR  proof of negative PCR or Lateral Flow Test within 24 hours of event.

Please bring proof in any of the following form: paper documentation, photographic evidence,  app or email.

 

OPTIONAL BUT RECOMMENDED

Whilst we aren't insisting Vaccinated Participants also bring proof of a Negative Test, we do advise vaccinated people to also take a precautionary lateral flow test before the event. As a dancer even vaccinated it is sensible to take regular lateral flow tests as a matter of course. It literally takes a few minutes and gives you piece of mind. 

 

ADDITIONAL PRECAUTIONS

We have tried to adopt best Covid practice for venue space with good ventilation and plenty of sanitisation hubs. We have limited numbers participating and also made some changes regarding Catering Servce. 

Whilst TangoBootcamp and Ralli Hall will continue adopt precautions to keep Covid away, nothing is risk free. You participate in this event aware of the continued risk from Covid and  your decision to participate must be based on your own risk analysis & personal situation.
