        It would help heaps if you could please read email sent on 7/8 july. If you have already preregistered (have your contact details needed by law – re hall conditions of who will and has attended each class) i only need confirmation of dates till end of aug ( not just next week date), Physically i can’t do this every week and if you can’t attend – write NA (not attending) instead of A (attending). If you need to cancel then let me know with as much notice as you can – preferably 48 hours (understandably there will be some times this can’t occur – but as soon as you can so that i can organise a replacement).Please email me if you haven’t already done so – eg below – re dates are diff for each class – all clear in the email – cheers – for your support and patronage – Can not wait to see you all! X
        This is just an example – all classes have different dates and sessions etc

        • Hi everyone i am getting thru all of your emails and will respond to each one – fab first class today!!
        • gold coast classes (mon and wed)- you only have to come at 9.30am FIRST time that you attend to hear the 5 min hall orientation
        JULY 8:
        Long Post – please read re class start dates and info
        FANTASTIC NEWS – WE ARE BACK!
        After many weeks of planning and getting hall approvals and Covid plans in place! YAYYY!
        FRIDAY AM JULY 10
        MON AM JULY 13
        TUES AM JULY 14
        WED AM JULY 15
        MON PM CLASS START DATE IS NOT UNTIL 20 JULY
        I will have to split some lessons (mon pm, tues am) into 1 hour (beginners) and 2 hours (improv/early interim/interm and upper interm). These dance spaces under 200sqm we can have 2sqm per dancer (max 50 in venue) but still have to allow for walkways to toilet and exits and front reception table etc. For eg Mon pm will be max of 40 per session, Tues am 50 per session.
        NSW – Pottsville hall will have 2 sessions as we can still only have 20 max at a time
        Gold coast classes are as normal with the 4sqm rule – but still have to adhere to a maximum allowed in the venue
        Attendance at every class is prebooked and if you can’t attend (have registered and given me dates monthly) class please give me 48 hours notice so i can notify others who have missed out and can attend in your place. Please don’t leave it to the last minute -others will miss out. This is not fair to others or myself
        I am working on separate group emails for each class so as i can let you know if there are any spaces in that particular class – please give me plenty of notice for non attendance

        Below is info on each individual class. Am asking for commitment for dates as you can’t just turn up/walk in (max numbers in each session/class and attendance records are required by law for each hall)

        • you can always let me know at a future date if you can’t attend that date
          FIRST time that you attend please arrive promptly (start of your session/class) so as to help things run smoothly

         there is a little bit of info i need to let you know at start of each class/session etc re these unprecedented times

        ALSO
        There are many requirements for cleaning after our classes (required by law) and am sure that you will offer any help you can to this communal process.
        Those who have already preregistered will have 1st option on class attendance
        But, if you haven’t already emailed me, please do so now to be able to take up any spaces left. See below
        Name
        Class
        mobile
        address (needed for gold coast classes)
        Session (if required for class that you attend) attendance dates
        eg Fri 10 july – A (for register to attend)
        Fri 17 july
        Fri 24 July
        etc
        Remember:
        *Arrive promptly (5-10 mins early at start of each class/session) but don’t congregate and observe social distancing. This is only fair on ladies on door so as not to have to take gloves on and off during session to mark your attendance/money.
        *Please bring the correct money and place on table. (Don’t ask for change etc). Bring your own pen in case you need to fill a form out.
        *Make sure that you have plenty of water and spare, as kitchens will be closed and not available
        * Please don’t come to class if you are feeling unwell. If you have been ill, returned from overseas travel or been in contact with anyone with Covid-19 symptoms in the 14 days prior to class, please do not attend.
        * Hand soap, paper towel and hand sanitizer will be provided, however please feel free to use your own hand sanitizer.
        * You are encouraged to use your own rest room facilities at home rather than at the Hall All of the halls will only have one restroom available – the Ladies room – regardless of gender – please use facilities only one person at at time (please don’t use gents, disabled)
        *Please wait in your car or gather at the appropriate distance from each other as you wait to enter the Hall for your session. For all sessions please arrive promptly – it is not fair for door ladies to be handling money, session books and have to take gloves on and off etc
        * Please refrain from any physical greetings upon arrival or on departure from class.
        * You are encouraged not to use the chairs at the Hall, however, if you require a chair for any period of time, obtain one yourself. You will be required to clean with sanitiser (PROVIDED) after your use and return your own chair to utility room .
        *Hopefully these measures will only be in place for a short time and we’ll be back to normal soon. some halls will have some special instructions per hall.
        Your records (required by law) – name, mobile etc – and address re gold coast – will be kept securely for 56 days

        July 1: UPDATE ON CLASSES – SEE BELOW – LONG POST PLEASE READ – if you haven’t emailed me yet please do! hi all
        I hope you are all well, am missing you all!
        During the last month i have been in constant contact with all of our halls.
        They all have differing requirements depending on size and how they are managed – council, community etc, QLD or NSW etc.
        I will have to split some lessons into 2
        There are many requirements for cleaning after our classes (required by law) and am sure that you will all lend a hand to this communal process.
        I know that you are all wanting to resume classes and rest in the knowledge that i will have your help in making the classes and halls adhere to the covid safe restrictions and guidelines re cleaning, mopping and disinfecting.
        I am in the process of working out how and when we can return to class and need your help re below. I need to know who is coming to class and how many?? as space restrictions will apply – can’t just turn up or walk in etc
        Hopefully you are all receiving my updates via email, facebook and website. But so I have not missed anyone?? Haven’t heard back from quite a few of you etc – please read below.
        THIS INFO IS NEEDED AS BY LAW (RE COVID TRACING) I HAVE TO GIVE RECORDS TO THE HALLS RE ATTENDEES

        Sessions may not be needed in every hall but please designate session preferred.

        ALSO
        There is no dance challenge this week
        i have meticulously walked thru and danced all of the dances in the last 4-5 months of classes as well as many more blasts from the past
        so check out my youtube channel – all of the dances are listed and danced on that site https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsiGqQRhtbNxfJQhNWGqxfQ?view_as=subscriber
        Great way to keep in touch is to join our facebook group page- Unless the qld border is opened on or before June 30, the Potty weekend is in jeopardy.The hall is plenty big enough (for up to 60-70 etc) but number restrictions need to be eased as well as the border issue.Oct Perso is looking promising though!
        Cheers and stay well and safe X
