Handy Hints

How To Get The Most Out Of Your Dance Class

Communication
We will keep you informed of upcoming events etc via newsletters, which will be emailed and will also be available on this site.
    
Punctuality
It is advisable to arrive at least 5 minutes before class is due to start so students are changed and ready on time. Students of Pre Elementary Level and above should arrive at least 15 minutes prior so they have sufficient time to begin a personal warm-up.

When Waiting For Classes
In consideration of others could students please wait outside the studio until your class is called.
    
Safety and Supervision
Parents - please try to be on time to collect your children. Please ask your children to wait quietly inside the building rather than out in the car park. Please do not leave other children unattended at the studio - we cannot and will not assume responsibility for supervison of any children other than the students in the class we are teaching.
