WE ARE DELIGHTED TO ANNOUNCE

that, after much careful planning, we will be gradually reopening Syrcas Byd Bychan to allow adult aerial classes to resume. We hope you are as excited as we are and thank you all for your patience.

This is a phased reopening in line with Welsh Government and Public Health Wales’ guidelines. It is following consultation with Ceredigion’s Public Services Board Sub Group; Understanding our Communities, and under the guidance of our Board of Trustees. A gradual re-opening will ensure that our COVID-19 safety procedures can be monitored so we build up to a full timetable in 2021.

Classes will need to be a little different – focusing on one piece of apparatus (trapeze/silks-rope/sling) each week so that we can rotate and quarantine kit between classes. We will be asking students to observe careful procedures, including wearing face coverings during classes. We understand that everyone has a different sense of the risks that COVID presents, but we hope you understand that it’s essential for us to following Welsh Government guidelines to ensure the safety of all our staff and students.

Rest assured there will be all the same circus FUN – your trainers have put an extraordinary amount of energy into the preparations.

ONLINE RESOURCES

Syrcas Byd Bychan trainers Jess and Hannah realised the importance for people to keep active and stimulated while in lockdown. They generously gave their time to support our community of students to keep fit and focused on their aerial circus practice. There is a catalogue of training videos available on Vimeo that maintain the energy and joy of our usual classes. The videos were, and remain important to staying strong and resilient. When all classes resume, we can come out of this situation united in our support for one another. The true spirit of circus!

KEEPING IN TOUCH

Jess and Hannah are taking over the communication for the time being. If you are a regular student, you will receive updates by email. If your contact details need updating, please email Jess and Hannah info@smallworld.org.uk
