Health and Safety
We ask that you wear closed shoes. You will be provided with aprons to keep your clothes clean. We have halved our class capacity to ensure the safety and well being of our staff and students during the current situation we find ourselves in. We ask that all students and teachers wear visors or masks during our class, as an added precaution, to keep each other safe. If you don’t have a mask, one will be provided for you. Each of our studios have been fitted with perspex dividers. We have installed sanitation stations for you to use on entering and exiting our premises.
