What will my child learn?
As well as learning core dance techniques relative to each class, dance will build confidence and independence. Dancing among friends, both current and new, will allow your child to explore social skills, working in groups and partners, as well as on their own. All of our classes focus on having fun, and the most important mantra of the school is that your child leaves the class having learnt something new, and with a smile on their face.
Can I watch any classes?
To help your child settle in to their new class, parents are able to sit in and watch trial classes. After this class, I do encourage parents to wait outside to allow you child to fully engage in the class. If children are anxious about being left, then I will endeavour to work with you to ensure that you and your child is happy. I, and my teaching assistants have great experience of dealing with children in this situation to help them feel at ease and join in with the class.
In the last class at the end of each term, parents of Bumble Ballerinas and Tiny Tappers are invited to watch the class to see how their child is progressing. Although, this is with exception to show term in July, as we don't want to spoil the surprise!
What should my child wear?
For the trial, you will be advised what to wear for your specific class. After your trial, it is encouraged that you purchase the uniform once your child is settled. Uniform can be purchased with a form, or on the website on the uniform page.
Do you run classes during the holidays?
Classes do not run during the school holidays, but there are often workshops running, so keep an eye out for these!
Do I need to enrol each term?
There is no need to renew each term. Your place in the class is automatically renewed each term unless otherwise specified, and this includes over the summer holidays.
What happens if we miss a class?
Classes for absences due to illness or holiday are non-refundable. If you are going to be away for a prolonged period of time, please get in contact to discuss this separately.
My child wishes to stop, what should I do?
If your child wishes to stop a class, you are required to give half a terms' notice in writing. There are often waiting lists for classes, so your space will be offered to someone else. If no notice is given, you will be invoiced for half a terms' fees. For more information about payment terms, please visit the Legal page.
