Frequently Asked Questions...
This is designed to be a list of the most frequently asked questions we receive. You can also use the contact form at the bottom of the page to ask any additional questions you might have.
Q) How do I enrol my child?
A) Please contact the school via the contact form at the bottom of the page or by calling 07576 132340 to check class availability and arrange your first free of charge class. You will be sent a welcome email. This will include all the information you should need, specific to the class chosen, and also a link to register yourself and your child on our Customer Portal through Class Manager. Your welcome email will also include a copy of all our policies, our recommended uniform document and more.
After your child's first free class you will be contacted to discuss how it went for your child and to discuss payment for the rest of the half term.
Q) How will I know my child will be safe?
A) All teachers hold a clear and up to date DBS check. Miss Megan holds public liability insurance, and is qualified in first aid. Teachers participate in regular Continuing Professional Development (CPD) including Safeguarding courses, ADHD and Autism Awareness and much more.
Q) What should my child wear to his or her first class?
A) There is no rush to purchase any uniform. Something that is comfortable, non-restrictive and easy to move in is suitable to begin with. Soft shoes such as pumps or trainers are ideal for tap and no shoes for ballet. It is vital that your child’s hair is tied back for all classes. If you do wish to purchase uniform before your child's first class then please visit our uniform store.
Q) Can you tell me about payment for classes?
A) There is no charge for your child’s first class. Following the first class , fees are due in advance for each half term. A half term is usually 6 or 7 weeks. Two weeks per school year can be deducted when your child is absent, (for example if they are ill, or on holiday). Please try to give as much notice as possible for a "holiday" to be applied so that the deduction can be made to the relevant payment period. Prices start at just £3.75 per class.
Q) What payment methods do you accept?
A) For class fees, we accept payment via Cash or BACs
Q) Which class is most suitable for my child?
A) If your child has no previous dance experience it may be suggested that your child begin in a class with slightly younger children. After a while your child’s teacher will liaise with you to discuss moving to the next class up.
Q) How do I find out the latest information/term dates etc?
A) Our timetable page is the best place to find out about the dates and times of our classes. You can also stay up to date by liking our Facebook page. If your child is already enrolled in one of our classes then you will be emailed all newsletters and information and occasionally sent information via text message.
Q) Do I need to stay while my child is in class?
A) Until you have completed a registration form you will be asked to stay on site during your child’s class (this will be in your car if your child is over the age of 5). After this if your child is of school age please feel free to go away and come back when your child has finished. We ask that one parent/guardian of children not yet of school age stays inside to assist with toilet trips.
Q) Can I stay and watch my child’s class?
A) Other than during the initial settling in period for younger children, parents are asked to wait outside of the studio. This is for the benefit of the children in the class and the class teacher. Two or three times a year we hold a “Watching Week” when parents are invited in to watch classes.
Q) How do I purchase a dance school t-shirt or jacket with my child's name on?
A) Orders can be place through our electronic order form for embroidered jackets, onesies, polo t-shirts, sports t-shirts, crop tops, vests and active leggings. You will find the form here
