Dance Obsession’s Coronavirus Plan

Please note, we’ll be following government guidelines and our plans may change with little notice so, if in doubt, please contact us to check the current timetable. Our current plan can be found on www.mydanceobsession.com

31.03.2020

Classes will be held online. Please email danceobsession@live.com for more information. 

25.03.2020

CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS. Please contact us on 0459 493701 to contact us about how we can help you with your future dancing plans. 

22.03.2020

The latest guideline to take into account is the request to limit non-essential travel and activities. Dance Obsession (Dayle and Sharon) has made the disappointing but necessary decision to cancel all classes and social dances until further notice. We will be looking for clarification on whether we can continue with private lessons so that our dance community can keep it’s fitness, dance skills and sanity and we’d like to offer private venue hire.  Consideration will be given to cost, cleaning and meeting government restrictions as we see them at the moment.  Please keep in mind, new restrictions are coming into effect every day, it seems and if in doubt, please ring or text us on 0459 493701.

This is a very difficult time for everyone and we thank you for your support and understanding. Our hope is that we all get to the other side of this chaos happy and healthy and return to our dance family soonish. Please be on the lookout for the newsletter as we continue our efforts to keep everyone dance fit.  I think it’s more important than ever to stay in touch online at this time so please keep us posted with anything interesting that you’d like to send to the ‘Family’ and Dayle’s code name can be ‘The Godfather’.

20.03.2020

CLASSES, PRIVATE LESSONS AND SOCIAL DANCES WILL CONTINUE @ DANCE OBSESSION at the moment.  We will be making changes to the content of classes, the dance programs, number of attendees and most importantly our seating arrangements.

Dancing solo is going to come into its own so all you dancers who have danced solo in the past because there wasn’t a dance partner or you were busy getting your own stuff right were ahead of your time.

Call me crazy but I’m excited for the challenge that’s ahead of us. Coronavirus is the absolute game-changer and we have to adapt what we do if we want to continue.

  • How many times a week do you normally dance?

  • Do you love dancing and why?

  • What are you going to replace it with or do you plan to do nothing for however long this takes?

  • What will you miss out on if you don’t dance?

 

CAN WE OFFER YOU A SATISFACTORY ALTERNATIVE?!!

  • We plan to run more solo dance classes similar to our Latin Exercise class but with more Modern Ballroom content…. dance sequences danced without a partner.

  • We will be hiring our dance floor complete with great music and in air conditioned comfort to singles, couples and small groups on certain days.

  • We’d like to offer online classes so if anyone has advice regarding this, please contact us as soon as possible.

At the moment, classes, private lessons and social dances continue as normal but that may

change as government policy dictates. Coronavirus is a respiratory illness caused by a new virus.

Symptoms range from a mild cough to pneumonia. Some people recover easily, others may get

very sick very quickly. There is evidence that is spreads from person to person and while good

hygiene can prevent infection, staying away from other people when they are, or if you are,

unwell is the best defence against most viruses. You should also:

• Wash your hands frequently with soap and water and refrain from touching your face.

• Cover your cough and sneeze, dispose of tissues and use alcohol-based hand sanitiser.

• Exercise personal responsibility for social distancing measures. Dancing is very much a contact

    sport, so if unwell, don’t attend classes, private lessons or social dances.

• And if you have recently travelled from a high risk area in the last 14 days, or been in contact

   with a confirmed case of COVID-19, please isolate yourself for 14 days.

 

Dayle and I will be taking every precaution and following the government policy regarding Coronavirus however it's really up to each and every one of us to be mindful in this situation. You may like to use your own cups and cutlery for a time, limit who you dance with, carry your own supply of hand sanitiser and especially, monitor both your own health and the health of people you come in contact with - self isolation for 14 days if you're unsure, is being recommended by the government. Symptons are similar to other colds and flus and include:

~   Fever

~   Cough

~   Sore Throat 

~   Fatigue

~   Difficulty breathing

We hope everyone comes out of this better than we went in – perhaps if only that we are well rested.  Please keep in touch and we look forward to seeing you when we see you ;-)
