Frequently Asked Questions
I am coming along/bringing my child for the first time, what should be worn?
For trial dance lessons we recommend that you/your child wear clothes that allow comfortable movement. After the trial lesson, if you decide to formally register, the school’s uniform may be purchased directly from the school.Back to top
Can I join midway through a term?
Children may register at the dance school at any time during the term and fees for that term will be adjusted accordingly. We do not want children to have to wait what could be several weeks before joining us.Back to top

How are fees charged? May I pay on a weekly basis?

Do you follow school terms or are the classes arranged differently?
Yes. As closely as possible the school’s calendar follows school term dates. We do take half term breaks to ensure the children have an opportunity to rest.Back to top
Do pupils have to take examinations?
Examinations (through the IDTA) are offered to all pupils but are not mandatory. The school believes in giving pupils the opportunity to express themselves, their talents and feel a sense of achievement through the examination process. However, the school would in no way hold any child back in their development should they chose not to undertake exams. The school is very proud of its extremely impressive success rate across all ages.Back to top
