The Never Stop Dancing Covid-19 Safety Plan for operating at Level 2 is set out below. This plan has been developed following guidelines from the Exercise Association of New Zealand, that have been endorsed by Sport NZ, and Worksafe NZ. This plan will be updated as necessary, given the changing nature of the rules and available information around Covid-19 safety in New Zealand.

physical distancing

All participants in an NSD "in person" class must maintain a physical distance of 2 metres between them and any other person, at all times. This requirement applies to the class itself, and to any queues to enter a class, or any queues at bathrooms. The class number caps that will apply for each NSD venue will reflect this requirement. The cap for classes at Mt Cook School Hall will be 80 people. The cap for classes at Thistle Hall is 25 people. Class choreography will also reflect the need for physical distancing.


Bathrooms and toilets, and common surfaces like door handles, will be cleaned before and after every class.


Hand sanitizer will be dispensed to all participants upon entry and exit of any NSD venue.


Class sign-ins and new customer forms will be completed by an NSD staff member (to avoid contamination of tablets, pens, clipboards etc). In-class payments can only be made by paywave enabled credit cards. Cash will not be accepted, and customers will not be able to touch the Fastpay/eft-pos keypad.

Equipment (yoga mats, hand weights) will not be used at any NSD class. There will be no "in person" Tone & Stretch classes available.


If participants wish to drink water during the class, they need to bring their own, already filled, drink bottle. Participants should bring their own small towel to every class. All participants should wash their hands thoroughly before coming to class, and after visiting the toilets, and should sneeze into their elbows.

NSD venues will be fully ventilated via windows, and doors (weather permitting). Participants should dress for a fully ventilated venue.


A QR code will be available for scanning, using the NZ Govt contact tracer app. NSD will also record every person who attends an NSD "in person" class using the existing NSD sign-in system. All new customers or visitors must provide full contact information. Any new customer or visitor who is unwilling to provide contact information will not be permitted to enter an NSD class/venue. If your contact details may have changed since you initially provided contact information to NSD, please fill out the form below. To find out how NSD deals with your personal information, please see the NSD privacy statement here.



Any person showing signs of illness will not be permitted to enter an NSD "in person" class or venue. If you are unwell, please do not come to class. If you have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for Covid-19, or who is suspected of having Covid-19, please do not come to class. If you are currently in quarantine or isolation by recommendation of your GP or by order of the NZ Government, please do not come to class. If you have tested positive for Covid-19, you must disclose this to NSD by email here prior to coming to an NSD class, and provide written confirmation of recovery from a relevant medical professional. NSD reserves the right to postpone or prohibit any person from entering an NSD class, even if that person has provided confirmation of recovery from Covid-19.

Participants with pre-existing health issues, or those over 70 years of age, can attend NSD classes at their own risk. Participants who are concerned about the risks associated with "in person" classes, are encouraged to participate in NSD Online classes instead.
