The doors of the halls in which classes are held are locked within fire regulations and not opened until the end of class time.
If a student has to be collected early please inform us beforehand and also give us the name of the person who will be collecting the student.
A register for each class is maintained by the teacher and attendance records kept for the purpose of health/safety/security.
Admissions / Fees
We do not offer 'trial/taster' classes. We charge only for the 1st lesson which includes insurance during class time and also to give the opportunity to see if the student enjoys and is suited to the class.
Dancing Fees are paid either monthly or half termly depending on the classes.
Monthly - 4 or 5 weeks
1/2 Termly 6 or 7 weeks
In the event of student absence, all lessons have to be paid in full and are non-refundable, we can however offer an alternative class.
Graded Ballet Examination classes are charged separately at a nominal fee.
We take pride in the professionalism of the School and we enforce a uniform policy so all our dancers look the same, feel comfortable and the focus is on dancing and learning rather than 'what someone else is wearing'. The uniform also complies with our Health/Safety/Safeguarding and Insurance Policies.
The complete uniform and shoes are fitted and purchased from the dancing school at a discounted price and we offer a further discount if purchased altogether.
Please ensure uniform/shoes are labelled.
It is essential that all students are correctly equipped and dressed for class:-
Wearing correct uniform
Bringing correct shoes
Long hair to be tied back preferably in a bun
Short hair also brushed and clipped back of the face
Braids are dangerous so if they have them in their hair they need to be clipped back.
Jewellery and watches to be removed
These rules are for the well being and safety of all the students in class and teachers alike, so we are able to see students are dancing correctly and safely.
Bottled water is always available if a student forgets to bring a drink as it is essential during a dance class the students do not get de-hydrated. (We do not recommend fizzy drinks) and all drinks to be in plastic bottles.
Regular attendance is encouraged if students wish to progress and maintain their technique and flexibility.
It will be the Teacher's Professional opinion when students are ready to be moved up a class so they are able to work and enjoy the level required.
Please esure mobile phones are switched off during class time.
