We will ask you to fill in a registration from and read and sign our media release along with T & C’s. Your son/daughter or yourself will then be introduced to your teacher to then join in your chosen class.

What should be worn?

For trial dance lessons we recommend that you/your child wear clothes that allow comfortable movement. After the trial lesson on the 3rd week, if you decide to formally register your child, the school’s uniform can be purchased directly from the school. Feel free to contact us for more details. Please note the branded jacket is compulsory.  

How are fees charged?

Weeks 1 – 3 can be paid via card or cash onsite on week 1. For example if you join a ballet class at £5 the total payment will be £15.00. After your 3rd week trial our payment option is Standing order.
