To support traditional dancing teams who are considering re-commencing their dancing, the Welsh Folk Dance Society have prepared an exemplar risk assessment. This risk assessment reflects the current position in Wales regarding meeting indoors for organised activities.

If you wish to recommence any indoor dancing at present you must prepare your own local risk assessment and COVID-19 policy. There is a limit of 15 persons indoors for any organised activity. Revised versions of all dances which ensure social distancing of 2 meters throughout must be prepared. You may wish to describe these practices as fitness sessions in order to comply with local regulations.
If, as we all hope, there will be some relaxation of social distancing rules next Spring following the imminent vaccination programme, we will send out revised guidelines at that time.
