New Visitor Policy

Due to the Corona Virus outbreak we have a new temporary visitor policy.  We would like to ask where possible older students to be dropped off and collected for lessons as the café bar will now only have chairs like a socially distanced waiting room.  If you are accompanying children to lessons where possible only one adult.  It is vital that if you or anyone in your family has been unwell, please do not come to the studio.  We will be operating our own trace and track system that relies on us all communicating in case anyone is unwell and preventing any potential outbreaks.  Any visitors not pre-booked into a class, must call ahead and arrange an appointment.
