Do we have to wait until a new term to join?
A. No you can start at any point during the term. Just contact us to check that classes are running that week.
Are the dance teachers qualified?
A. All our dance teachers are qualified under the Royal Academy of Dance or the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing or other similar dance boards. All our staff hold current CRB certificates.
Do you offer a free trial?
A. Yes we do. Once you have had your free trial you will be charged at the same rate as everyone else for the remainder of classes within that current term.
Is it weekly or termly payments?
A. We operate a termly payment system. All parents/carers will receive an invoice for the forthcoming term, covering the weeks within that term. We ask that this is paid before the commencement of the new term.
What should we wear to the trial?
A. Whatever you think will be suitable for dance and bare feet if ballet or modern, school shoes or similar for tap and trainers for street. Lots of the little ones get upset when they arrive and are not in ‘uniform’ so if they have a princess dress or something similar they can wear that.
Do they have to buy a uniform after the trial?
A. We do have a recommended uniform, please see the class that your child is interested in for specific details as it differs from grade to grade and dance style to dance style. We usually recommend that for the first few weeks they wear their own clothes and after that buy the uniform. Our sectretaries can help you out with all the details and we have an in house dance shop to order from.
Can we stay and watch the lesson?
A. In our experience, children relax, pay attention and enjoy the lessons better without a parent or carer watching as it can be distracting so we ask that after the free trial/taster session, parents do not watch the lessons. We do however hold presentation classes at the end of each term for parents, grandparents etc to watch a class.
Do the children have to do exams?
A. No they do not; although it is a fantastic experience and great for confidence building and rewarding after all their hard work.
