Teachers have been updated for the red stage COVID-19 safety 
protocols.
To ensure continuity the TDC schedule is being revised with a combination of zoom classes and in-studio participation.
The volume of music to be low enough that a normal conversation is possible; measures to prevent shouting by both instructors and members of the public

All choreography and training will be designed to comply with physical distancing guidelines but also be flexible so that it can revert to a less socially distanced format whenever that time comes.
