Classes from the 5th of April will proceed as per usual with capped numbers.

Mandatory Restrictions will remain across all of Queensland for two weeks until 12 noon on Thursday 15 April 2021. 1 person per 2sqm rule now applies and is in force (groups may sit together).

We have gone venue by venue for the classes during this period to identify which classes can continue and which need to be postponed due to the lockdown and restrictions, we will be in touch with customers shortly.

We have capped ticket sales to match the space requirements at the respective venue.

What happens if my class is postponed?

For postponed classes, we now have confirmation of the lifting of the lockdown, but not the lifting of restrictions.

we will contact our venues and find an alternate date on the same day of the week, at the same time of the day, at the same venue 4-6 weeks from now and move the event to that date. We will then communicate the new date for your class with you directly.

If you are unable to make your rescheduled class, you can request a credit without expiry (we will not charge the class transfer fee for rebooking for Covid lockdown affected classes). You can use this credit at any time. To book simply visit find the class you wish to book, choose manual payment, and email us to let us know (we will then mark it as paid at our end for you).

New tickets will be automatically issued to you when the new date is provided. If you would like to read the COVID lockdown policy, it can be located in our terms and conditions here.
