*** DPPA PLAN UPDATE | Social Dancing ***

There is a new updated version of the Dance and Physical Performing Arts Industry Covid Safe Plan uploaded today (30/09/20) on the Queensland Health website and our website. This revision includes a specific new instruction from the Chief Health Officer to address clarity of direction for our dance community.

A reminder to all that Ausdance QLD works for you to maximise the amount of dance activities possible under current restrictions. We are grateful for your understanding.
 

SECTION 3.3 - Social Dancing – Exclusion from scope.

"'Social Dancing’, meaning unstructured dance activity for the purpose of entertainment, is not permitted under the Queensland Chief Health Officer Restrictions on Businesses, Activities and Undertakings Direction (No.5).
 

All Dance and Physical Performing Arts activities must be conducted including a structured instructive or practice element to be covered under the scope of this plan."

COVID-19 Update as at 10/07/2020

Hi friends and students

As many of you would be aware, Stage 3 restrictions are now in place in Qld as of 3rd July 2020. What does this mean? Gotta Swing is currently in the process of getting all our checklists and compliance in place at the moment. We are working together with our venues on all the COVID-safe requirements and plan to restart classes in the very near future - watch this space!

 

Ausdance QLD has now revised their Qld Health approved Industry Plan, Dance and Physical Performing Arts (DPPA) in line with stage 3 requirements which means that partner dancing is now permitted.

COVID-19 Update as at 23/03/20

 

Good morning to all our students and friends.

 

If you have not already heard last night you will be waking up to the news that the government has introduced fairly drastic new health and safety measures to try and slow the spread of COVID-19. They have announced the closure of all licenced pubs, clubs, bars, cinemas, theatres, gyms, indoor sports venues & places of worship as at midday today. As a result all Gotta Swing classes and events are now cancelled until further notice.

 

Stay safe and practice social distancing as best you can. We’ll see you again on the other side!
