RISE Dance COVID-19 Safety Policy & Procedure - Classes Roundhay Parochial Hall, Leeds


Below we have outlined the procedure we are implementing during your dance classes to ensure they are as safe as we can make them.


We are doing everything we can to ensure that government guidelines are being met within our school to keep everyone safe and reduce the risk of spreading Covid-19. We ask you to kindly support us in achieving this within our school.


We have implemented the following steps to help make returning to your dance lesson safe and easy. You can also view our safely procedures video by following this link: 



  • We ask that you pay for your lessons via our online booking system. If this is an issue, or you need any help with this, please contact a member of our team.

  • Please enter and exit through the fire exit. Please do not wait in the lobby. When it is time for your lesson, one of the teachers will come outside to wave everyone in from the car park.

  • Hand sanitiser is available at the entry/exit point of the venue please use this when you enter and when you leave.

  • A member of our team will direct you through the hall to a designated seat where you can leave your belongings. Please try to bring as little as possible with you, and ideally a bag to put your belongings in. Please also arrive wearing what you wish to wear during your lesson. There will be no areas to change, and whilst toilets are open, we ask you to kindly avoid using them as much as possible. Please wear a mask if going into the communal area to the toilet.

  • At this time, our teachers will not be able to partner anyone. We have limited the number of people allowed in the hall to ensure social distancing is possible in all lessons.

  •  Please stay in the designated space as instructed by your teachers and allow for social distancing with your teacher and other students during your dance lesson.

  • We have supplied all members of the RISE team with suitable PPE and we are allowing time for extra hand washing during lessons. Teachers may be wearing a visor, if you would prefer your teacher to wear a visor whilst they are teaching you, please let us know before your lesson.

  • When your dance lesson is over, please change your shoes, collect your belongings, and leave via the fire exit. Please do this as quickly as possible to allow for the necessary cleaning to take place. Please also clean your hands using the hand sanitizer provided at the other end of the hall when you exit.

  • Your safety is our priority, in order to help us help keep you safe we need to allow extra time to clean between lessons, escort people from the premises, and invite new clients in. We will require a maximum of 10 minutes to do this between each lesson, which means your lesson will be slightly shorter than usual.

  • If you or a member of your household currently have any symptoms of Covid-19, or are aware of having tested positive for Covid-19 and are currently within the recovery period, please do not attend a lesson with us. If you have booked a lesson, please contact a member of our team and we will arrange to reschedule once it is safe to do so.



Our team would like to thank you for helping us keep our school Covid-19 safe. We look forward to welcoming you, if you have any questions please contact a member of our team on info@risedance.co.uk.

Thank you!
