COVID-19 - Update
The dance industry and return to classes
The statement below contains information directly from both the IDTA (International Dance Teachers Association) and ISTD (Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing) , the JFDC are adhering to these guidelines closely and will return to classes only when we are instructed by the government that it is safe to do so.
The IDTA would like to remind all UK members that we have not yet been officially informed that it is either safe or permissible to reopen dance studios. Therefore, we would strongly advise that schools do not reopen until they are able to do so safely and in line with Government advice. We will be monitoring Government guidance on your behalf and issuing relevant guidelines as soon as practically possible.
Theatres, fitness centres, gyms and leisure centres will be considered for re-opening in Phase 3, which will be no earlier than 4 July.
Half Term Challenge- Extended
We have a challenge keep you busy over the half term break... We would like you to strike your best dance pose in the most unusual place you can think of (find a place around the house and garden or find somewhere while out walking) take a picture, then either email your photos to us or post on our Facebook resources page. The best photos will be uploaded onto our website & main Facebook page! (with your permission).
Go get creative, get posing and get uploading
Badge Design Competition
We have an exciting competition for our super stars (and any other dancers that want to join in). Many of you know that we hand badges out in class for good work etc. These badge designs change about every half term and we need your help thinking of some new designs. Print off the attached pdf (alternatively you could use your computers drawing tools) and get designing. We will pick our favourite designs to be made into actual badges when classes start backup again.
A few things to think about:
The badges are very small so don't add too many fine details
text doesn't print well
these badges can go to any dancer in the school from 3 years old to adult.
