COVID19 – WHAT WE ARE DOING

After serious consideration and in the best interest for the well being of all of our dancers, all Wednesday night beginners and social dances have now been suspended (returning soon) as a precautionary measure for the good of our dancers and to help ease the spirally curve in the spread of COVID-19 within Hobart and Tasmania.

In response to the escalation in COVID-19 containment advice provided by the State and Federal Governments and considering the most up to date information and advice surrounding COVID-19, we believe it would now be socially and commercially irresponsible for us to continue public partner dance classes which, by definition, include personal contact and a definite lack of social distancing.

With person to person transmission of COVID-19 confirmed in Australia, many people including asymptomatic carriers, could unknowingly pass on COVID-19 to others, who in turn pass it on to loved ones in the susceptible demographic.

Both myself, Martin and other volunteer’s, helpers and dancers, are all healthy but we all have ongoing regular contact with other people who could be in the risk groups of the community.

Whilst we already had hygiene strategies in place, conditions in Tasmania are presumed to get worse before they get better. We know that many of you will miss dancing during this challenging time, but we appreciate your ongoing support in prioritising the health & well being of our dance community and their families and friends.

We promise that we will closely monitor all impending advice and reassess at that time so we can get classes happening again for you as soon as possible.

Like everyone, we hope that all other Dance Studios, Businesses and Individuals do what they can to ‘flatten the curve’, this global health concern will pass, and we will all get back to the dancing that we love so much.

I thank everyone sincerely for your understanding and support of this serious situation,
