To Our LBDA Families,

With the NSW Government releasing the Roadmap for reopening the State, we have received updated information regarding Vaccination requirements for accessing our Dance Studio.

  1. We will require Proof of Vaccination Starting Monday 11/10/21

  2. All clients 16/Over must be Fully Vaccinated

  3. All clients Under 12 must be accompanied by a Fully Vaccinated Adult at drop off.

  4. All clients aged 12 – 15 years must be accompanied by a Fully Vaccinated Adult if they are not vaccinated at drop off.

  5. All clients aged 12 – 15 years who are Fully Vaccinated can be unaccompanied

This is inline with the NSW Covid 19 70% Roadmap which can be found here:

New Vaccination Check-In Process

  • As per above Public Health Orders, all Adult clients and unaccompanied 12 – 15 year old clients will be required to provide Proof of Vaccination to gain entry

The following are acceptable Proof of Vaccination:

Unvaccinated Adults

Inline with NSW Government Public Health Orders any unvaccinated adults or any adults who cannot (or choose not to) provide Proof of Vaccination will be refused entry.

We are very excited to be returning to face to face teaching in the studio on the 13th September 2021. We have missed you all so very much!


 

We are taking various measures to ensure that we adhere to hygiene and social distancing requirements - the health of both students and staff being of paramount importance.
 

Please read the information below thoroughly and ensure that both you and your child understand the hygiene and social distancing requirements that we all must adhere to in order for us to remain open.
 

Upon returning to our studio in accordance with Federal National Roadmap to Recovery, our dance classes will begin with good hygiene, social distancing and the 4 square metre rule in place. This means that there must be adequate space for 4 square metres per person not including teachers. The New South Wales government have stated a maximum of 20 participants per class with up to 80 or 100 per venue respectively.
 

We must ensure that all of our students are aware of the following through instruction and relevant signage:
 

  • Regular hand washing and use of hand sanitiser will be encouraged. Hand sanitiser is to be used pre and post class for all participants including teachers.
     

  • Ensure coughs and sneezes are covered by a tissue or a flexed elbow; tissues should be disposed of in a closed bin and hands sanitised following sneezing/coughing.
     

  • Do not share water bottles and all unclaimed water bottles will be disposed of.
     

  • To speak up if a student or faculty member is feeling unwell.


HOME ASSESSMENT


An 'at home assessment' is required to be done by each student, confirming their suitability to return to class. 

 

Considerations - 
 

  • Are you suffering from a temperature or have been in the direct company of someone that is? (Over 38 degrees)
     

  • Do you have unusual fatigue, a dry cough, runny nose, sore throat or difficulty breathing? 
     

  • Have you been in contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case in the last 2 weeks?
     

  • If so, please seek medical advice immediately and alert us, so that self-isolation can be acknowledged.
     

It is only with a sound ability to 'pass' this self-assessment that we ask that you join us at the Le Beat studio.

  • Students must wait outside in their parents/guardians car until cleaning has been completed and instruction has been given for their class to enter.

AFTER CLASS
 

  • At the end of their class students will be returned to the entrance of the building for collection whilst ensuring child safety policies and procedures are in place.
