REGISTRATIONS

Click here to register

Automatic registrations are now closed for Sept-Dec. If you would still like to join the classes, please email us at dance@sarahforro.com to see whether there is space available in the group you're interested in.

If you are interested in the Jan-March trimester, we recommend signing up to our newsletter to receive all the information when registrations open in December!

The payment details will display after you click submit and you will also receive them via email. Please arrange for payment to be made as soon as possible and within 7 days of your registration. If we haven't received payment within this period, we will make your place available to someone else.

If you have already registered, you should have received an email with the payment details. If not, please get in touch with us as soon as possible.

By registering, you confirm you have read and agreed to the terms and conditions.

LEVELS
Given the upheaval of the last year and a half, we recommend that previous students register for the same level as in September 2020. We will adapt the content to the students in the group, and we'll use this trimester to reconnect and rebuild before potential level changes in January.

New students are strongly recommended to start with Level 1 ;-)

If you already dance forró but you're a new student in Brussels, get in touch - we'll do our best to orient you to the most suitable level.

If you have any questions, let us know via email (dance@sarahforro.com)

 


PARTNERS

We are currently allowed to change partners during a dance class!

So for this trimester, you register individually - no need to have a partner!

 

But, you might like to think about who you would dance with if the number of close contacts are limited in the autumn.

👉 This should be someone dancing the opposite role and planning to register for the same group as you.

👉If you have a partner in mind, there is a space in the registration form where you can fill in their name.

👉If you don't have anyone in mind, that's fine - just leave this space blank and we'll cross that bridge if it comes to it.

 

If you would prefer to stay with a fixed partner all trimester, that's also possible. In that case, please find a partner before you register and indicate "Fixed Partner" next to their name on the form.

 

Scroll down for more info on the current covid measures and what we will do if they change.

COVID MEASURES

 

What are the current measures in place?

All sporting activities are currently allowed, both indoor and outdoor, with and without contact.

⚡ Changing partners is allowed.

⚡ Masks must be worn before and after the activity.

⚡ Hand gel and/or soap and water must be provided for all participants to use before the class.

⚡ The venue and material used must be disinfected as necessary.

⚡ If you are unwell or have had a high-risk contact, you must stay at home.

If you would like to take extra precautions such as wearing a mask while dancing or dancing with a fixed partner, you are very welcome to do so. The most important thing is to keep dancing! If you would like to discuss this further, talk to Sarah.

 

These measures may change during the trimester and we will keep you up-to-date whenever anything changes.

What if the coronavirus measures change during the trimester?

Experience has shown us that trying to predict the future during a global pandemic is...unwise!

So instead of trying to plan for every possibility in advance, we will follow any changes to the measures closely and make the best decision possible with the information available at that time.

 

What you need to know:

📣 We will continue the classes as long as it is feasible to do so.

📣 If we need to adapt the classes to respect the measures in force:

we will make the best decision we can based on the information available at the time, and

we will prioritise the social and fun elements of our forró classes as much as possible.

📣 We will communicate all changes to you as clearly and proactively as possible.

📣 If the class format changes drastically (for example, no contact allowed, no in-person classes allowed), you will be able to decide whether you want to continue participating.

📣 You will not pay for classes which don't take place.

📣 If we interrupt the trimester, you will be able to transfer your remaining 'credit' to a future trimester, or request a pro-rata refund.
