Coronavirus COVID-19 update

“Code Orange” for Sports/Fitness in Flanders

From Wednesday 14 October 2020 “Code Orange” corona measures will be applied for sporting & fitness activities in the Flemish region of Belgium, which therefore includes all our dance classes.

All classes continue

The main point is that all our RAD Ballet & Dance classes can continue as normal. From previous consultations with both the Tevuren local government and police we are already prepared. There are some differences according to age; however these are the main points:

  • All students arrive already changed for their dance class, as the changing room is not allowed to be used.
  • Masks must be worn inside the building for all aged over 12.
  • Masks are not required (nor recommended) when taking part in a class inside the dance studio.
  • Other family members, where possible, should not remain inside the building.

Children up to 12 years of age

Dance classes for younger children continue as normal, as there are no requirements for any social distancing nor the wearing of masks, nor restrictions on interation nor contact, nor limits on numbers.

However all students should come to class already changed, as the changing room area should only be used to leave coats, bags, etc. and not for changing.

Code Red?

An increase in the corona-level to Red will make no difference for younger children, as the rules are exactly the same as those for Orange.

Children over 12 years of age & Adults

Dance classes are allowed to continue for teenagers & adults; however 1.5m social distancing guidelines should be respected by all students when in class.

Masks are not required (nor recommended) while taking a class in the dance studio; however masks are required in all other areas of the building.

All students should come to class already changed, as the changing room area should only be used to leave coats, bags, etc. and not for changing.

We will make the smaller Dance Studio 2 available (with benches) as a waiting area before class.

Code Red?

If the corona-level is increased to Red, then teenagers & adults will not be allowed to continue their dance classes in the dance studio. Therefore we will continue these classes online.
