In response to the Scottish Government’s Coronavirus (COVID-19): guidance for creative studios and shared workspaces (published 30 June) Dance Base are planning a phased re-opening of our studios beginning on Wednesday 15 July 2020. This process will see a gradual re-opening of access to the Dance Base building for professional dance artists and workers in line with Government advice and with a focus on Health & Safety, social distancing requirements and increased hygiene protocols.
Phase 2 of the Government's Roadmap deems that professional sports can resume with public health restrictions remaining in place, and that those who cannot work from home can return to their place of work. Therefore, in order to support the professional dance community and provide much needed space to move, from 15 July we will begin a phased re-opening of Dance Base by opening two of our studio spaces to be used by the professional dance community with one artist per studio per day.
We understand that this opportunity will sadly not be accessible to all. Due to our location it will only be accessible to those in or comfortable to travel to Edinburgh, while those who are shielding, have caring responsibilities or do not feel comfortable entering a public space may not be able to take part. However, we hope that this offer will provide space and time for those who can use it and mark the first stage of our journey forward.
All elements of the plan are, of course, subject to change and dependant on Government advice and guidance, to which we will adhere strictly. We are looking forward to welcoming our dance community back into the venue, but it is our intention to do this with caution and consideration of the health and wellbeing of our artists and our staff.
