Information to help the line dance industry during the Coronavirus Situation
This day has been a long time coming but finally we are getting there, covid-secure indoor dance classes can start again in England from 17th May. You MUST continue to follow the ‘rule of six’ and social distancing should be taking place. You must also continue with regular Risk Assessments, Social distancing (min 2m), Student contact records for tracking and the other covid-secure measures you have in place. Guidelines are the same as the previous covid-secure measures and can be found below. The July entries are the main ones along with the 9th sept entry for the 'rule of 6'. You will also find a risk assessment template and a printable covid-secure poster to display. Stay safe and happy dancing.

LATEST GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES for CLASSES IN ENGLAND. (22/09/20) UPDATE:
Line Dance classes come under the umbrella of fitness/exercise/dance classes rather than a sport. As long as your venue is covid secure you can carry on as you were. You MUST continue to follow the ‘rule of six’ and social distancing should be taking place. You must also continue with regular Risk Assessments, Social distancing (min 2m), Student contact records for tracking and the other covid-secure measures you have in place.
QR Codes: Some VENUES will need to create and display a QR code poster wich is scanned by visitors as they enter. This is the venues responsility and not the instructors. Records should still be kept by the instructor of student contact details for tracking, for each class. Contact your venue to discuss QR code and whether applicable.
Line dancing socials are a big grey area, these are not exercise classes, they are dance socials therefore we would advise contacting your local council for advice before proceeding.
As long as your venue is covid secure you can carry on as you were (same as pubs, gyms, etc). Within those venues there must NOT be individual groups larger than six (i.e If you put tables out, people cannot gather in a larger group than six and social distancing should be taking place). Venues/classes MUST record people’s details- this is now mandatory and must be kept for a minimum of 21 days. Remember to keep up the social distancing!
