In all the activities of the Kerava Dance institute we take into account the continuing situation of infectious diseases and up-to-date instructions from the authorities. We follow the instructions of the Finnish National Agency for Education, the Ministry of Education and Culture and Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) on the hygiene practices during the coronavirus epidemia. It is important to us to take care of the health and safety of both students and teachers. Our studios are cleaned more efficiently and ventilated as well as possible. We emphasize that everyone acts responsibly and follows the instructions given.
