Covid-19 - We are constantly working to ensure that we are meeting government regulations. We are operating a one way system where possible and allow time between classes to prevent it getting too busy with people coming and going. In the event of a lockdown classes will be moved online via Zoom (please take note of our zoom T&C's below). Our teachers work very hard to make the routines fun and keep dancers engaged though sometimes may adjust the format slightly for lessons that take place on zoom. If one of our teachers has to isolate at short notice (not displaying symptoms) and we are unable to arrange a teacher to cover the lesson , we may need to move lesson to zoom. PLEASE NOTE; We are not able to offer refunds or transfer lessons if you opt not to participate in zoom classes during Lockdown or if a teacher needs to isolate at short notice and class moves to zoom (see details above). Thank you for your understanding.
One half term's notice must given in writing to withdraw a pupil from a class. The fee for the notice period is payable, regardless of whether the student it attending the class.
All dancers (or their parent or guardian) must complete a registration form. You will not be able to participate in any dance class if you have not completed a registration form. When you register it is important that we know about any Pre-existing musculoskeletal injuries or medical conditions the dancer has. Please advise your teacher before class if you have a new injury or condition staff should be aware of. In case of an injury a qualified first aider will look after your child.
Teaching dance often requires the teacher to place hands on the dancer in order to facilitate improved placement of the body. Please speak with teachers if you have any questions relating to this.
When in class dancers are expected behave as they would at school, to listen to their teachers and respect the staff and their fellow class mates in order that the class can learn in an enjoyable and safe environment. Similarly, teachers expect to be spoken to respectfully by parents. Failure to meet this expectation may result in the student being asked to leave the school.
When we have watching weeks and end of class presentations we may allow you to film and take photos. Please respect dancers’ confidentiality. If you do take photos or videos please ensure they include only your child and do not share any content on social media.
When collecting your child after the class, please come to the designated collection area. It is not enough that your child knows you are waiting in a car, the teachers need to see you before they can release them to you to ensure Child Protection.
Please be prompt for both drop-off and pick up. Dancers should be ready to dance, having their hair tied back and having been to the toilet in time to start their class at the designated time. Late arrivals are incredibly disruptive to the rest of the class. Similarly, could parents please be punctual for collection. When teachers need to wait for a parent to arrive it results in a delay in the subsequent class starting.
