Our Common Commitment

what I & all those who dan​ce in person with me in Scotland agree to do to help keep us all as safe as possible

  • hand sanitiser will be available in the room

  • masks will be worn at entry and exit, on stairs and in the changing room (but wearing a mask on the dance floor or in the toilets is not required)
  • numbers will be limited to allow physical distancing; the maximum permitted number to be at my discretion and may vary from class to class depending on circumstances, but will always be within the maximum permitted by the appropriate government regulations at the time, and/or those laid down by the venue manager

If you test positive, you will immediately notify me and withdraw from the class. Your payment will be refunded in full. (Please note, if you test positive, you should notify NHS Inform; current Scottish government regulations also require that you take a PCR test and self isolate for 10 days)
  • all participants will bring their own re-usable water bottle and a large bag in which to put all their possessions, to be stored, distanced, in the changing room during class
  • participants will be reminded of the importance of physical distancing, and good hand/sneeze/cough hygiene at the beginning, and if necessary during, the class

These precautions notwithstanding, you do the class at your own risk.


  • unless special arrangements are made, payments will be by BACS
  • payments will be accepted until the maximum permitted number in the class is reached or until 24 hours before the class is due to start, whichever is the earlier

  • if I cancel the class for any reason, all payment will be refunded
