Covid safety measures in place for in-person Move with the Groove classes:

  • Limited numbers/class 'bubble' 
  • Class activity is within your own space; there's no mingling and participants are well spaced
  • Face coverings are not advised unless necessary for medical reasons
  • Ventilated venue - good through flow in the buildings, but well heated
  • Hand sanitiser - available on entry and exit
  • Testing - participants are encouraged to take a lateral flow test before class, and are asked not to attend if they have any Covid symptoms or feel unwell.  I will be taking an LFT before each class.
  • Hygiene - all surfaces are cleaned before and after class.  Cleaning materials are provided in the toilets, please wipe down any touched surfaces after use

Alanya is very grateful to Ignite CIC for its support with various activities and courses
