Coronavirus (Covid-19)

ABD headquarters
Following the government’s announcement outlining more stringent measures to combat coronavirus, we have taken the decision to close ABD headquarters until further notice.  
ABD staff will be working from home and still able to respond to queries via email and telephone 0121 288 4166.
Office hours are Monday to Friday 09.00 to 16.00

Shop & Online Streaming
Online orders may still be placed as usual through our online shop but will be despatched only once our operations resume. 
Any orders for online streaming are able to be processed and we are currently working to add more of our DVD library to the currently available titles.

Examinations
The ABD suspended all ABD examiner travel on 17 March until 30 April 2020.
The safety of our teachers, candidates, parents, examiners and ABD staff is paramount. We will postpone and reorganise all exams where possible.

If you have questions please contact Natalie on admin@abd.dance

We will continue to communicate with you regularly throughout this global pandemic.
