JFDC: February News 2021
After the Government's unveiling of their roadmap and notification from the IDTA, we finally have an idea of when we will be able to recommence classes:
No earlier than April 12th: Junior group classes can recommence* (with current Covid-19 safe measures).
No earlier than May 17th: Adult group classes can recommence* (with current Covid-19 safe measures)
No Earlier than June 21st: Social distancing restrictions lifted.
*The IDTA are seeking clarification on whether adult one to ones will be permissible from 12th April or 17th May.
The online booking system will open two weeks prior to the confirmed date of classes recommencing. We would like to confirm that bookings are secure for those of you who paid for the full half term that was cancelled (Nov/Dec). These will be confirmed via email nearer the time.
JFDC venues: We are in communication with all our venues regarding the reopening of facilities. This is the information we have so far:
MK Snap - subject to further confirmation projected return date 12th April (with new air conditioning)!
Medbourne - projected return date 15th April.
Shenley - projected return date 16th April.
Holmwood - projected return date 12th April.
Maulden - have confirmation of venue reopening, awaiting start date.
Tickford - returning later in the year date TBC.
JFDC Events: We have contacted the Chrysalis Theatre regarding a revised date for our 40th Anniversary Showcase (better late than never)! We are pleased to announce we have a provisional date of Saturday 23rd October . All those who signed up originally and attended rehearsals have their place in the cast secure. Rehearsal dates will be released nearer the time and we are looking forward to what promises to be a fantastic event and celebration.
We are also hoping to be able to run our regular Summer School, November Exam Session and Christmas Celebrations as restrictions lift. Further information will be released closer to the time.
We once again would like to say a huge thank you to each and every member of the JFDC for your continued support and understanding throughout a difficult year!
