Terms & Conditions

Classes 

We reserve the right to change the times of classes or request that the pupils are moved to another class, but we will give notice and try to offer an alternative if possible. Classes will sometimes over run especially around exam and show times. If classes are going to be cancelled for any reason you will be notified by email and a post will be added to our facebook page. 

Uniform  

Once your child has been attending classes for a few weeks it is necessary that you have ordered the correct uniform. 

Hair should always be tied up and jewellery should not be worn. 

Photography 

Parents/guardians and students are not permitted to take photos or videos without been given prior consent. 

 

Payment and fees 

Fees are originally quoted on a per class basis, however they are payable in half term blocks in advance at the end of the half term, unless a prior arrangement has been made. Please note if your child is absent due to holidays, sickness or injury, or a prior engagement the fees are still payable and are non- refundable. If fees are not kept up to date, we reserve the right to pass your place onto someone else. If fees are paid late a £10 late fee will be charged. 

If your child is absent for over 3 weeks and we are not notified, we will assume they are no longer attending classes and their place will be filled. If you decide to stop attending class, you must give notice in writing at the end of a half term.  Informing us at the start of a half term or part way through a term that they will not be returning is not sufficient notice. Therefore, you must give written notice in the previous term, if you do not wish to be charged further. If you pay late you will be invoiced a £10 late fee. 

Invoices are sent to customers by email 3 weeks before the end of the half term and are payable on the last day of the half term. All dates for the next half term will appear on the invoice. 

There is a discount system for those who do 3 or more classes a week, this applies to families not just individual students. 

3-4 classes receive 5% discount 

5-6 classes receive 10% discount 

7 or more classes receive 15% discount 

We also have an unlimited access pass for individuals which is £25 a week

There are 12 stickers to collect in each book and 12 certificates in total. Stickers are only given to those with books otherwise they get dropped in the building. 

Keypad entry 

All dancers and parents need to use the black side door, there is a keypad entry system. The code is C4680Z. It is essential that everyone closes the door behind them for this system to work. All children must always be accompanied by an adult.

All customers are welcome to use our car park, if you arrive before the teacher please make sure they have space to park. Under no circumstances should anyone block other cars in and leave the premises. There are many parking bays in High Town which are free evenings and weekends. Please always be courteous to our neighbouring businesses by not parking on their premises or blocking their parking spaces/entrance. 

Dropping off and collecting your child 

Please escort your child into the building, if you are leaving your child at class please make sure you are in plenty of time to collect them. We are not responsible for their welfare when their class has finished. If someone different is collecting them, please let us know. Children aged 5 and under must have an adult in the building during their class. Please do leave children under 10 until their class has begun and they have settled. If you are going to be late collecting your child, please let us know immediately. 

Waiting area 

Please leave the waiting areas as you wish to find them. If any pupils or siblings are found to have caused damage to the area parents will be charged for repairs. Please do not leave the heaters on unnecessarily, if you are the last adult/teenager to leave the room please switch the heaters off. All parents are asked to wait in the waiting room. 

Please do not put bags on chairs, keep your belongings tidy and store them underneath the chairs. Dancers should make the most of the stretching and practicing area and warm up before class. 

It is a fire hazard to leave buggies by the side door, if it is necessary to bring into the building they can be left in the office if the waiting room is busy. Please be aware that you will be taking it through our stretching area so if the wheels are wet or dirty the buggy will need to be folded up or the wheels cleaned. 

Stretching area 

The dancers can use the stretching room or the corner of the studio before their classes begin so they can warm up or practice. This area is not for parents or siblings unless it is very busy so please wait in the waiting room. The area is for dancers only at no point should siblings use this space encase of injury. 

When stretching please make sure you are warmed up and work within your own capability. 

Under no circumstances should acrobatic tricks be practiced in this room. 

Only dancers that are high school age can use the equipment in this area and only if they have been shown how to use it.  

Please be quiet and consider those who are in class and those teaching.
