The Northern Ireland Executive has confirmed that indoor sports and activities can now resume from 17 July. Following this news, we could not be happier to announce the opening of some of our regular class locations in August. We will be returning to venues which have completed risk assessments to ensure social distancing and are following all sanitising procedures.
Below, you will find our class schedules and what locations we are returning to.
Please note: we are still waiting to hear when the venues we use in Ballycastle, Kilrea and Cloughmills will be available again.
We will continue to liaise with these venues, and we will be sure to let you know via our website and social media when we plan to return to these locations. As the situation is out of our control, we hope that some children from these towns will be able to attend our Ballymoney or Coleraine classes on this occasion instead.

NEW LOCATION ALERT:
Be Unique are coming to Greysteel for the first time, this August. Classes will be hosted in The Vale Centre week commencing 17 - 21 August. All details in poster below!
Here are the initial steps that we will be ensuring all Be Unique staff take to keep your children safe throughout our August classes. Please note, this list is not exhaustive and will keep changing as we continue to strive to provide the very best and safest children's drama and dance classes.
New maximum class sizes will be set with reference to venue size and government guidelines.
Our classes have always been “closed doors” classes for the children to flourish in but now our venues will be too. We'll do a handover of your child at the venue door, meaning that parents won't need to congregate in a waiting area but wait socially distanced in the fresh air at all times. Specific details regarding each venue will be sent out closer to the first day of the scheme.
Class times will be staggered to give us the opportunity to disinfect contact surfaces between sessions, as well as avoid a large group of people coming and going at the same time. If your children is going to a 2 HOUR session, we will take everyone out for fresh air in the middle of the 2 hour block, ventilate the room and “reset” the area, sanitising and cleaning main surfaces.
All hands will be sanitised on entry to the venue and toilets will be wiped down regularly during sessions, before and after.
Children will be allocated an ‘island’ (their pwn space) to perform from and, whilst the Department of Education recognises that social distancing is impossible with young children, we will modify our activities so that no physical contact games will be played.
Parents will be asked to take any coats or bags home once they have dropped off their child.
It goes without saying that our venues will ensure regular cleaning but we'll also be armed with disinfectant spray to refresh surfaces before and after each class.
Any questions or queries, please feel free to email OR contact Martina on 07591053063.
SUMMER 2020... Be Unique Style - let's go!
