We’re delighted to be holding a weekend of classes and practices at the Ocean View Hotel from Friday 9-11th October 2020.
Due to social distancing, this will be for a maximum of 12 couples for the practices and classes will be divided into 2 groups of 6 couples.
The Regal Ballroom has been divided into 8 sections for classes and 16 sections for the practices. This means that couples will be able to progress around the floor during the practice whilst leaving one empty section to move into at any time. Social distancing will therefore be viable at any time. The ballroom has many windows and doors so adequate ventilation is possible. Hand sanitiser will be provided. Drinks can be brought into the ballroom.
You can arrange your accommodation at any Hotel in the area including the Cottonwood Boutique Hotel which is next door, just mention that you are with the Tango weekend when booking. All bookings for the weekend are for couples only or ‘dance bubbles’ at the moment unfortunately.
The schedule is as follows:
Friday 9th October
Group 1 & 2 - Practica in the Regal Ballroom from 8.45-11.00pm
Saturday 10th October
Group 1: Lesson from 10.30-11.45am
