In light of the introduction of a tiered system from Monday 2nd November by the Scottish Government, we wanted to reiterate what that means for Glasgow Lindy Hoppers and whether we can start our classes again.
In our previous statement, GLH stated that classes would not be forseeable for starting back until Phase 4, which was when restrictions have been lifted. Given that Glasgow City and many of the surrounding areas have seen further restrictions on what we can and cannot do, there is still no date for when we can safely restart our classes. The safety of our GLH members is our priority at this time and, as hard as it is, classes need to remain postponed.
The level for as normal as it gets without a vaccine, Level 0, still has a large amount of restrictions on socialising indoors, so it seems unlikely that in-person classes can resume in this phase.
Although we are currently not holding regular classes, there are many professional teachers who have currently lost their income due to this pandemic who need our support during this time. Classes are held online and you can do them from the comfort of your own home. Many are free to join if money is tight but they also have a donation link available. A post containing some of these classes will be available soon.
In the meantime, keep safe and we hope to see you soon.
