If there is any teaching professional in this world who knows how to perfectly socially distance children for any style of physical activity, it’s safe to say that it’s dance teachers. Dance teachers don’t simply teach students to kick, jump and turn, it's a craft that they learnt as children themselves that can now be passed down through generations. Dance is one of the most physically demanding and disciplined sports in the entire world, the pure embodiment of physical story-telling, a form of expression through movement and for many, an outlet to express their feelings. When a child steps into a dance studio, they’re stepping into a space where health and safety is paramount to all teaching staff present and respect for one another’s space is upheld for each and every individual.

When the onset of COVID-19 rocked our shores, gym workouts and dance classes were the first to go. The classes that can actually secure safety and ensure distanced learning were tossed aside for virtual learning, a wonderful sentiment, but for many dance teachers and studio owners, just not the same. Unlike school classrooms, dance classrooms cap off at numbers of 8-10 students per room, with 1.5 metre spacing upheld at all times during the experience. Dance classes are one of the safest non-contact sports that can still be made essential if not for the mental stability of the parents needing a break, for the children harnessing their passions and emotions in the healthiest way.

So, are you feeling convinced about enrolling your child into dance classes but now have the burden of choosing between many reputable studios? Look no further than LKM dance studios in two convenient locations right here in the Blue Mountains. Both studios are fitted with a Sprung floor, floor to ceiling mirror, fixed ballet barres and reverse cycle air conditioners can be located at 276 Macquarie Rd Springwood and Winmalee shopping centre on Whitecross Rd.
