29th March – Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update

In line with the government guidelines, the Linda Shipton School of Dancing will be closed until further notice. We are currently looking at the possibility of running “on line” dance classes which will hopefully start after Easter. We will keep you up to date with any developments. In the meantime, stay well and keep practising all your dancing at home.

I have just been informed, that due to Corona Virus, Copleston has made the decision to stop all outside hirers using the schools’ facilities, despite the school remaining open at this time. Therefore, all classes are cancelled. I will update all parents on future classes when I have further information. Please check on this website and Facebook. This is beyond my control and can only apologise and hope that you all understand.

Car Parking Week Commencing 15th June

I am writing to make you aware that in the week beginning 15th June, visitors of the Sports Centre will not be able to park in the Foxhall Rd car park – this is due to the number of coaches being used for “Activity Week” in the school (and their need to be able to turn around safely!).

Visitors will be able to park on the overflow (grass area) at the rear of the car park and inside the green gates next to the Sports Hall, as well as the Main School car park if you follow the road around the back of the Sports Hall.

Obviously, there will be signage up during the week, but as our regular hirers, I am sure you would be happy to pass the message on to as many guests as possible so that there isn’t massive confusion that week…

This will only be in effect from 3pm – 7pm.
