Please note: this policy may evolve as local and state guidelines change.
DCF follows the safety guidelines set in the city of Helsinki. Most training are indoors and ventilation is as good as it gets. We try to make choreographic choices that avoid unnecessary close contact, but it is not altogether possible.
We hope that you are mindful of COVID-19 safety also during your time off. Please avoid exposure and stay safe.
We recommend the use of Koronavilkku application during the two weeks around any of our events. If you get a notification about an exposure please let us know immediately.
Are you well?
If you feel ill or have a temperature over 37,5 please stay home.
Clean Hands and Weapon Disinfection
Wash your hands frequently. Hand sanitising stations can be found around the theatre and in the rehearsal studio.
Please use gloves when working with weapons. We will ask you to stick to one weapon and avoid unnecessary exchange. After every practice we will ask you to disinfect the weapons you have used (we will provide the disinfectant).
Capacity and distancing
Be aware that capacity of the workshops is limited. We are asking all workshop attends to respect each other’s space and keep the safe distance always when possible to limit the risk.
Masks for in-person training
We ask all participants who are attending a workshop to bring their own face-masks. Anyone over the age of 18 will be required to wear a mask in any indoor shared spaces, including theatre hallways, and bathrooms.
We will ask you about your vaccination status in the RSVP form. This information will not be shared with other participants unless you decide so but it will help us greatly in preparing for the workshops and planning the precautions to take into consideration while training. It is not mandatory to disclose your vaccination status but we will then ask you to provide a fresh negative Corona test result. Safety is always our priority and at the moment it is strongly effected by the pandemic.
Many of our participants go to test on weekly basis due to requirements at work. If you have a fresh negative test, please let us know. We also encourage to take a rapid Corona-test prior to the workshop. Especially if in your daily life you can't avoid contact with other people and your work environment is changing frequently. If you feel uncomfortable in disclosing your vaccination status, please take a PCR test prior to the workshop.
Registering during Covid
During the Covid 19 pandemic we have had to change the way we take bookings. If you would like to book onto one of our workshops please register on our website by RSVPing to the event. For some of the bigger workshops we will be charging you an initial deposit to secure your space. We will then be contacting you few days before the course to take final payment.
When you register to the course you will receive a confirmation email. You can cancel your spot and get a full refund in case you develop any Covid symptoms. Please be in touch with us as soon as possible. If the whole course gets cancelled because of teacher's exposure or sickness, you will be also refunded in full.
The deposit taken will be non-transferrable and non-refundable deposit unless you give us a notice before the workshop. In which case we will look to transfer you booking to another available workshop.
Please let us know if you get any symptoms during the workshop or two weeks after! We have saved your contact details during the registration and will share them with Finnish health care officials if they are needed for tracing purposes.
