We're COVID Ready!
We endeavour to adhere to Government Guidelines and continue to operate under the supportive ‘umbrella’ of our membership with The Foundation for Community Dance (SalsaJulia has been a member since 2008). The Foundation for Community Dance provides our Public Liability Insurance and also a wealth of information to support safe operation for community dance clubs, such as ours.

* We fully appreciate that some of our customers might be a little nervous about returning to salsa. It is, after all, a close-proximity partner-dance and sociable occasion. We have been one of the last sectors to re-open and we respect the obvious concerns that still remain. The SalsaJulia Team have been meeting regularly during August and September and discussing the potential difficulties that may occur. We’d like to reassure our customers that our ‘return to salsa’ is a cautious one. We have put together our Risk Assessment, which can easily be ‘tweaked’ as confidence builds. We are mindful of the fact that Autumn/Winter approaches and we remain reactive and adaptable, should any events need to be postponed.
For those who have particular concerns (not covered by the measures mentioned above), do please contact me, as we can discuss some one-to-one options.
