Dance classes are starting again across the UK. We expect more Yoga venues to re-open in September but not all classes will resume due to the venues not being ready, or unable to meet the UK government recommended requirements.
On the NearYou website and mobile apps Covid-19 dance classes are highlighted so that you can easily see which venues are open and are ready for customers.

Children's ballet and tap dancing classes are opening up, classes involving couples is more problematic because of the social distancing rules.
Private adult dancing classes are available for couples from the same household. Group social dancing is not happening currently.
Please note class sizes are smaller and the price per class will in maybe higher. This is to cover the extra cost of cleaning and smaller class sizes. You are strongly advised to book and reserve your dance place early if you wish to attend a dancing class.
We are seeing a strong rise in bookings in August for dance Classes so we recommend that you book a block of dancing classes or ClassPasses Now.

Covid-19 How do I choose a dance class?
During lockdown Pilates Yoga and Dance fitness have been the most popular activities on NearYou. The quality of online classes has been very high. We recommend checking out reviews before booking a class. They give customers valuable feedback.
We do NOT recommend just going on Google search or places, or maps to booking a class on individual websites UNLESS you are an EXISTING customer of that dance teacher or dance studio.
Many dance classes were cancelled but the websites and even mobile apps have not been updated. In many cases the studios have closed or ceased trading or the dancing teacher is no longer teaching.
Look out for Covid-19 compliant logos on dance classes on NearYou.
