Dear all,

I hope you are all well and coping with the social distancing. Some of you may know I have been unwell over the past couple of weeks. Thank you to those that have been in contact and your get well soon messages. All my plans to getting classes on-line had been put on hold. Now I am feeling closer to being better. I have a new free on-line dance classes page for all our lovely students. https://www.rochelleballet.com/on-line-dance-class. Please contact me for the password. We currently have a couple of videos of me dancing in professional shows. So enjoy!

UPDATE  CORONAVIRUS 19/03/20 - Rochelle Ballet School & Performing Arts

 

Dear all,

 

It is with a heavy heart that we have taken the decision to cancel all further classes this term from today at RBS&PA 💔 Our students, families and staff are our main priority and we are committed to maintaining the health and well-being of everyone, therefore know this is the right thing to do in this very difficult situation. We continue to follow the advice from the government and are monitoring the situation closely. 

 

Due to the uncertainty, we have no idea going forward how much this will effect future plans, Exams, Open day but promise we will keep you posted along the way. 17 years of RBS&PA, nothings going to stop us!

 

We hope and pray we are able to return after Easter, but in the meantime will be offering all of our students online support, dance challenges, activities and fun things to do at home to keep you all dancing and performing! We want to stay in touch with you ALL, so please message, email, FaceTime, WhatsApp us - We need to see your lovely faces!! 💕

 

For the missed classes, I will be offering a free workshop, when we return to normality. I am currently working towards creating on-line classes. I will be in contact to let you know if I managed to achieve this.

 

All the best, stay safe and well.

UPDATE  CORONAVIRUS 12/03/20

Like many organisations around the world, Rochelle Ballet School and Performing Arts is watching the news about COVID-19 closely.

We are committed to maintaining the health and well-being of our students and staff. We continue to follow the advice from the government and are monitoring the situation closely. Wherever possible, we are maintaining our timetable of classes, but request that you follow the precautions set out in the government advisory pages if planning to attend an classes or if you have recently returned from overseas. We will be ensuring all equipment is wiped down between each class.

NHS Overview:
Provides information on what the coronavirus is, what the risks are and how to avoid catching and spreading coronavirus – and the main guidelines:

  1. If you have been in contact with someone with coronavirus or have returned from an affected area identified by the Chief Medical Officer as high risk and you are feeling unwell with a cough, difficulty breathing or fever, stay at home and use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service or call NHS 111.

  2. Wash your hands more often than usual, for 20 seconds using soap and hot water, particularly after coughing, sneezing and blowing your nose, or after being in public areas where other people are doing so. Use hand sanitiser if that’s all you have access to.

  3. To reduce the spread of germs when you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue, or your sleeve (not your hands) if you don’t have a tissue, and throw the tissue away immediately. Then wash your hands or use a hand sanitising gel.

  4. Clean and disinfect regularly touched objects and surfaces using your regular cleaning products to reduce the risk of passing the infection on to other people.

The NHS Overview states, "Most people can continue to go to work, school and other public places. You only need to stay away from public places (self-isolate) if advised to by the 111 online coronavirus service or a medical professional".

While RBS&PA is not qualified to provide guidance beyond what the government has issued here is a round-up of useful sites:
