INFORMATION REGARDING INDOOR CLASSES POST COVID-19 & ASSUMPTION OF RISK/WAIVER OF LIABILITY AGREEMENT INFORMATION

 

We have all had to adjust to life in lockdown, and for many of us that brought serious challenges. Our Healy family however strives to continue the love of Irish Dance in each and every possible way. I thank you all for your love and support for continuing to dance virtually with me.

Now that we are fortunate to be in a position to resume our indoor classes, it is important to understand that there will have to be a “new norm” on how classes will be run. Health and safety is paramount to each and every one of our dancers and their families. Therefore a stricter regiment has to be followed and we require all parents/guardians/ dancers to agree with their signature to participate in our classes. The class will provide a suitable space for dancing. However, The Sheila Healy Academy of Irish Dance cannot accept liability for any injury or sickness.
