ADULTS 19 AND OVER: Can you please confirm if my students 19 years and over can dance indoors in Regional Victoria now? Capped at 10 students plus instructors. The RAD shows we can but people are being told by DHHS that they can only dance outdoors?

You are correct. You (and now Melbourne studios) can offer indoor classes to adults 19 years and over, providing the following conditions can be met:

  1. The number of members of the public permitted in each indoor space and in each group, class or session at any time is limited to the lesser of:
    1. A density quotient of 8m2 per person, as per the rules for working this out
    2. 10 adults
  2. The number of members of the public permitted in the facility at any time is limited to the lesser of:
    1. A density quotient of 8m2 per person, as per the rules for working this out
    2. 20 adults
  3. You can ensure members of the public are reasonably able to maintain a distance of 1.5 metres from each other; and
  4. shared equipment is cleaned between each user; and 
  5. there is no physical contact, other than in an emergency, between a member of the public and any other person otherwise permitted to attend the facility; and
  6. only one class or session commences at a given time and that time is at least 15 minutes after any other class or session has commenced; and
  7. the facility has a COVID Marshal onsite during the operating hours of the facility; and
  8. the person complies with the records requirement and the restricted area requirement.
