Covid 19 Statement

Impetus Dance is presently operating face to face classes and is taking termly bookings but under strict COVID 19 rules.  As a result our classes are running with reduced numbers. We are now once again offering face to face workshops in slightly smaller groups than previously as well as online ZOOM Workshops for up to 15 people to organisations who are looking for an inclusive dance opportunity. We will continue to evaluate this rapidly evolving situation. The health and safety of our staff, volunteers, beneficiaries and community is our top priority. Thank you for your understanding.
