Returning to the studio – July 28

Hi Main St Funk Members,

Thank you once again for your patience, understanding and support during this difficult and confusing time.

We are relieved to confirm that we will be returning to the studio from tomorrow Wednesday, July 28. We will be back to our regular class days and times with a few exceptions.

RULE ABOUT CLASS SIZES: The latest announcements stipulate that dance classes are once again limited to a maximum of 10 students per class. This rule will affect a number of our classes but just as we did last time, we will be asking for your flexibility, to assist us in ensuring every child can come back to the studio. We will touch base with each affected class separately.

If your child is in any of the following classes, please keep an eye out for an additional email from us about our plan going forward; Friday Mini Ballet, Friday Mini Hip Hop, Saturday Fairy Petites, Monday Junior Hip Hop, Tuesday Tiny Hip Hop, Tuesday Tiny Ballet and Tuesday Littlie Hip Hop.

TERM 3 FEES: All accounts have been adjusted to account for the missed lessons during lockdown 5.0 and fees are now due, unless you are a new student/family and you are yet to have your obligation-free trial class.

COVIDSAFE PLAN: Our covidsafe plan remains in place as it has since the beginning of the pandemic. We know it is tiresome and we really appreciate your cooperation and patience.

The short version:

  • Masks must be worn by all MSF teachers, parents and students over the age of 12 when not physically participating in a dance class.
  • The mask rule applies indoors and outdoors.
  • Drop off ON TIME, dressed for class
  • Parents, don’t stay on-premise unless your attendance is absolutely essential
  • Don’t bring anyone extra to the studio, if you can avoid it
  • Parents staying must sign in using QR code- everytime you enter the studio, regardless of how long you stay.
  • Clean your hands before and after class
  • Stay away from the studio if you are unwell or have been advised to isolate.
  • Read the full covidsafe plan here: COVIDSAFE PLAN – dance school epping

Please note, these policies are a legal requirement that our dance school must have in place in order to operate. By enrolling into a Main St Funk dance class, you acknowledge that you have read, understood and agree to abide by our Covidsafe Plan. This not only keeps you and your peers safe but also protects our business.

CAR PARKING: Just a reminder that no cars are to drive beyond the gate into the complex. When dropping off or picking up your child, you must park your car in Lydia Court and walk down the driveway to the studio. As we mentioned before lockdown, neglecting this policy is causing distress amongst parents and students (as it is a safety hazard) and disrupting our positive relationship with our neighbours. We thank you for your ongoing cooperation with this.

ANNOUNCEMENT: If you’ve been following our social media posts, you know that we have been hinting at a very big project happening behind the scenes. We will be making a big and super exciting announcement tomorrow so keep an eye out on your emails and newsfeeds!

We are so looking forward to being back in the studio! If you have any questions, please send us an email at mainstfunk@gmail.com We will be in touch with those affected by the class capacity rule shortly.

Thank you and let’s get dancing!

The MSF Team xx
