Return to Dance
We are very excited to let you know of our Return to Dance plan!
Our first day back, face to face in the studio will be Monday 25th October.
To allow us to return to the studios, as smoothly and safely as possible, please read our requirements below.
REQUIREMENTS TO ATTEND FACE-TO-FACE CLASSES
ALL staff, and students aged 16 and over, MUST demonstrate proof that they have been double vaccinated (or evidence of their medical exemption) upon entering the premises.
ALL staff, and students aged 16 and over, who are not double vaccinated will not be allowed on premises [clause 2.18 of the Public Health Order]. This is legislated strictly by the NSW government.
ALL staff, and students aged 16 and over, MUST check in using the Service NSW QR code before entering the premises. Students under 16 years of age are also encouraged to use the Service NSW QR code if they have a smart phone.
ALL students under 16 years of age may return to the studio if they are vaccinated or unvaccinated.
Everyone, including students aged 12 and over, is required by law to wear a mask at all times whilst in an indoor venue, unless eating or drinking [clause 2.17]. Our teachers will instruct students ages 12 and over that they WILL be allowed to lower their mask below their chin IF they are having difficulty breathing in class. [This is as per clause 2.17(d)(i) of the Public Health Order.] Students under 12 years of age are encouraged to wear a mask.
Students aged 12 and over who attend the Academy without a mask will be given a mask to wear. A $2 fee will be added to your account and can be paid via your family portal.
Our teachers will be permitted to lower their masks, at their own discretion, if they are having difficulty breathing in class, but also for some portions of our Tiny Tots and Pre-Ballet classes, when it is essential for the teacher’s mouth to be seen by the students for the sake of enunciation, communication or demonstration – and also to comfort our youngest students who might be intimidated and scared by not seeing the face of their teacher. [This is as per clause 2.17(d)(ii) of the Public Health Order.]
Inside we are limited to one person per 4sqm. Social distancing is still important, especially at pick up and drop off times. Please be mindful of maintaining space around you when and where possible.
STAY AT HOME IF YOU ARE UNWELL
It is imperative that all staff, students, and parents DO NOT come to the studio if they are unwell or show even mild symptoms.
If any member of a student’s household tests positive for Covid-19 then Lane Cove and Roseville Dance Academies must be notified immediately and the student, nor anyone from the household, can come to the studio for 14 days, after which a negative test result must be produced.
Class attendance rolls as well as our COVID marshall check-in at LCDA, will be used for contact tracing and record keeping of students at the studio.
Should you be unable to attend our classes in person due to vaccination status, if you need to self-isolate or are feeling unwell, please let us know. We will continue to provide zoom access to all our classes for the rest of this year.
Please Note – you must let us know before 12pm on the day of your class, so that we can alert the teacher to log in to zoom.
COVID SAFE DROP-OFF & PICK-UP PROCEDURES
Students will be collected by their teacher at the start of their lesson, from the Birdwood Lane entrance.
Where possible students should arrive dressed & ready for their class. If students are arriving straight from school, they may enter the building 5mins before their lesson to change. Students must be able to dress themselves when they arrive.
No parents will be allowed in the Academy.
At the end of their lesson, students will be brought back down the stairs to be collected from the Birdwood Lane entrance at Lane Cove Dance Academy
Please note that classes may start a little late & finish a little early to allow the teachers to clean the studio in-between lessons.
Lane Cove & Roseville Dance Academy teachers will be following our COVID-19 Safety Plan in order to keep all students & staff safe and healthy.
If you ARE already enrolled in Term 4 classes (having paid your Term 4 invoice) you do not need to re-enrol. We have included you in our face-to-face classes, taking into consideration the 4sqm rule. We can’t wait to see you face-to-face from 25th October!

- Students full name.
- Class/es you would like to enrol in (e.g., Monday Ballet 1 at Lane Cove).
Please DO NOT attend the Academy if you do not receive a confirmation email from us. Your child will not be able to participate in class.
