CORONAVIRUS COVID-19 - temporary changes to Ceroc

Several venues in England are able to offer dance lessons that follow Ceroc's Temporary Format.

Unfortunately the current situations means 'in person' activities remain suspended in Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Ireland, Amsterdam and France. One exception is Ceroc Isle of Man is fully re-open with their regular weekly classes!

UPDATE 26 NOV 2020

Several tier 1 and tier 2 venues in England will begin to open again on or after Wednesday 02 December 2020.

The guidelines for tier 3 areas unfortunately mean venues in those areas will currently need to stay suspended.

Coronavirus and COVID-19

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses which may cause illness in animals or humans. In humans, several coronaviruses are known to cause respiratory infections ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS).

COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2).

Transmission is thought to occur mainly through respiratory droplets generated by coughing and sneezing, and through contact with contaminated surfaces.


Temporary Format: Socially Distanced Dance Lessons / Workshops

The legislation and public health guidelines for ENGLAND continue to restrict us from offering our normal format. Instead, we have a temporary format that does allow some of our local operators to provide dance lessons.

  1. We limit the numbers and require everyone to pre-book to confirm their place.
  2. Everyone stays as fixed-partners with someone from your own household or exclusive support bubble.
  3. You'll have your own 'dance slot zone' which we ask you stay within during the lesson.
  4. Your zone is at least 2 metres from the other zones.
  5. There will be opportunities to practice but the rules above still apply.

Do not attend if you have symptoms or should be isolating

Do not attend if you are experiencing any of these symptoms:

  • a high temperature
  • a new, continuous cough
  • a loss of, or change to, your sense of smell or taste

Stay at home and book a test

Do not attend if you have been told to isolate or have been in close contact with anyone else who has symptoms.


Support bubbles dance partners

If you don't live with another dancer then you might be able to pair up with someone from another household if you form an exclusive support bubble. This would then be the same person that you partner with for all lessons under this temporary format.

Arriving at our socially distanced lessons
  1. Unless you're otherwise told, please aim to arrive together between 5 and 10 minutes before the lesson start time. Don't be late but don't be too early.
  2. Please only bring into the venue what you need for the lesson.
  3. Please stay at least 2 metres from others at all times.

Face Coverings

For many venues in England you may need to wear a face covering on arrival, leaving or when in other communal/shared areas away from where the lesson is taking place.

You are permitted to remove them if they will affect your ability to participate in the lesson.


Is it legal in each of the 3 tiers / alert level areas?

The law in England allows for 'permitted organised gatherings' with organised sessions like ours in its Temporary Format to have larger groups provided you don't directly mix or mingle with other participants. To avoid confusion this is another reason that we ask you to remain at least 2 metres away from everyone except your own dance partner.

This includes in tier 1 (medium alert) and tier 2 (high alert) areas in England.

If the venue's area moves into tier 3 (very high alert) then it will vary by the law and the venue whether we can continue. Information will be provided if that happens.
