    Hi Parents,

    Firstly a big thank you to everyone who came down to watch the show last week at Sadlers Wells, I hope you enjoyed the performances and watching your child and the others on stage. If you attended the show and you were able to take pictures / videos and wouldn’t mind sharing please send them on to me, it would be great to see things from different perspectives. I’m planning on doing another show next year, I’ll be sure to keep you all in the loop with plans.

    Please see below for some up

    Photographer
    On Saturday 28th May we have a photographer coming down to our Kent campus to take pictures, we’ll be getting some group shots and individual shots. The pictures will mainly be used to update the website and any future promotional material, our last photo shoot was back in 2018 so I think it’s time for something new.

    It would be great if we could have some students from the London branch also involved in the photoshoot, students who travel up from London would also be taking part in the workshop on that day.

    Please see below for your child’s time slot and address:

    St John’s Comprehensive

    Rochester Road

    Kent DA12 2JW

    10.00am – 11.30am / Kriss Kross £8
    11.00am – 1.30pm / Roger Rabbit £15

    On the day everyone will need to come wearing a TKDA top, it doesn’t matter what type of garment (t-shirt, sweatshirt, hoodie etc) or colour as the more variety we have the better.

     

    Half Term
    There will be no sessions the week commencing 30th May due to the half term break, lessons will resume back the following week.

     

    Last Day Of Term
    Our last day of term will be on the week commencing 11th July, 10mins before the end of our last session parents will be invited into the studio to watch a short demonstration by the students.

  • Health & Safety Procedures 

    In order to resume our classes we’ve had to include a lot more protocols, we have also have a detailed risk assessment which can be provided for anyone who would like to see it. Please see below for the measures the TKDA and JAGS Sports Club have put in place to promote  

     

    Traveling – students arriving by car should only do so with others from their household, those taking public transportation should remember social distancing and to wear masks were required 

      

    Hand Santisting – Hand santasing will be offered before and after leaving the dance studio 

     

    Pick up and drop off points – to limit the amount of people in the studio we will be providing a drop off and pick up point for the students, the students will be collected from the fire escape to the studio, after the session the children will  be dismissed to the same location one at a time to parents and guardians. Please arrive on time and not too early as your child will not gain access to the studio until it’s there time, after dropping off / picking up your child please do not hang around the studio as you may be asked to leave by staff, social distancing will also need to be followed while waiting. 

      

    Advance payments – due to having limited numbers advance payments will need to be made to secure your child’s place, this will also need be as an online payment as we are going cashless to make transactions easier. At present we are only accepting one full payment for the term (12 weeks) or one half payment before the term starts with a second being paid before 02/11/20 

      

    Food and drink – only water bottles will be permitted into the dance studio, these also should not be shared. Water fountains will also be out of use 

      

    Use of personal belongings – essential items will only be permitted into class, only fluids will be allowed 

      

    Social distancing – floor markings and signs will navigate the one way system implemented by JAGS, while walking everyone will need to keep 2 meters apart. 

      

    Covid Symptoms – If your child or anyone in their household develops Covid symptoms they should not attend class, if a child develops symptoms during a class they will be removed from the session immediately and the child’s parent / guardian will be notified to come and collect them. The government guidelines will then need to be followed accordingly  

      

     

    As you may know businesses have been severely affected since the Covid outbreak, as a small business owner this has been extremely testing due to the fact we haven’t been able to trade since March. The next couple of months will be a crucial time for us, hopefully we will be able to pull through and get things back to normal, it will be a struggle as we need to reduce all our class numbers but I’m confident we will pull through. 

      

    Online Classes – Going forward if we are unable to fulfill our studio sessions due to any Government changes this term we will revert back to online classes, like before these sessions will run via Zoom. The Zoom classes will run on Thursdays during your child’s class time, these sessions will also be recorded so students can access them throughout the term

     

    Online Payments & Documents To make things easier this term all paperwork and payments will be online, all term fees will now need to be made via BACS. We are also in the process of updating all our paperwork so will also be sending out some online forms to be filled out, this may be in a similar format to the questionnaires that have been sent out of the past couple of months.
