DEAF hub salsa classes restart 1st Feb

22 01 2022

NEW Beginners Cross body style Salsa,  6.15-7.05pm, tues 1st Feb at The Deaf Hub, Old Mill, 23, Brown St, Dundee. Please email LQsalsadundee@gmail.com asap to book a space asap as will be limiting numbers to allow space.8 week block pass £30 or £5 per class weekly. Can join first 2 weeks only. Beginners class dancers please come 10 to 15 min early to register & pay. 

Classes are progressive, Anyone welcome, no partner usually necessary as usually we change partners in the class, however this may be a difficulty as some people may not want to change partners due to Covid like last term, which is understandable.   As guidance stands at present in Scotland I think we need to still wear facemasks to move around the building.  We will discuss face mask wearing in the first class like last term, especially for the people who will be changing partners to see what the majority think like we did last term, although I think you don’t have to legally wear them for exercising. People in classes last term opted for wearing masks (unless exempt) for close partnerwork but will go with class consensus. I will continue to collect details for test and trace at start of the block.  Hand sanitizer will also be available.
Given current covid situation a negative lateral flow test within the 24 hours before class time to help reduce the spread is desirable if possible. See other covid information below.  Please pass the word. All money raised for Azul Wasi project for former street children in Peru. 

Directions on www.salsadundee.com on class page.
Please note : there is no car parking outside the deaf hub (may get a parking ticket), best to park on Brown street.
Just a few other reminders to help us all keep as covid friendly as possible and to help speed up the registration process.
-Please do not attend if you ( or anyone you have been in contact with) feel unwell or have any Covid Symptoms. -Wear face mask indoors unless exempt.-Provide contact details for test and trace, venue has no QR code. Bring own pen please. -Bring correct amount of cash please for classes to reduce money handling.-Hand sanitizer will be available to use regularly. -Main hall door & emergency exit will be open for ventilation so bring extra layer incase cold.
– One way system, leaving class by fire escape door.
You can request to join the facebook group for classes if you wish at  Salsa Dundee- Latin Quarter | Facebook  or see www.salsadundee.com for class directions under the classes tab.

NOTE : Other 2 classes below are higher level classes and only open to those with relevant dance experience, please contact teacher in advance to check level to join if new to Latin quarter classes. Please come 5 to 10 min early to register and pay. Given lower numbers last term in these classes I have slightly increased class price to cover room hire and raising money for Azul wasi and increased to an 8 week pass to reduce money handling.  Class pass option for 2nd 2 classes will now be £30 for 8 classes or £4 per class.  
There will be options in classes for those who do not wish to change partners and for those who do hopefully but we will have to assess partner situation each session if you do not come with one. 
Improvers / intermediate Cross body salsa 7.15 – 8pm 
8.15 – 9.05pm class.  The 8.15pm class this term will be : first 2 weeks Bachata improver class ( 1st & 8th feb ).  After this it will be a 3 week Cuban conversion class, partnerwork ( open to those who are already improver level cross body salsa dancers who want to convert to learn cuban style dance, hopefully leading to Rueda eventually once Covid reduces).  If not enough couples this class may not run, will assess situation in week 3.  PLEASE email if you are interested in a space in the cuban conversion class from week 3 (15th Feb) so can get an idea for numbers please.
