Missed Classes

Unfortunately we are unable to refund missed classes to ensure the sustainability of the dance school.


please make sure your child wears the following:

Autumn and Spring Term: leotard or t-shirt and leggings or tights, ballet shoes (please no ballet slippers that are slippery and for fancy dress), warm jumper,

Summer: leotard or t-shirt and leggings or bare legs, ballets shoes or bare feet. 

AT ALL TIMES: Please make sure your child wears ballet shoes or bare feet, as the floor might be slippery and your child will be asked to remove her socks/ tights. Bare feet are fine in summer, but too cold in winter

There is no uniform at the moment, but we are are planning our End of the Year Performance in the school theatre this year  (date end of November/ beginning of June tbc by the school office), so if you need to buy a new dance outfit this year, please read the following colours guidance (all kids joining the performance will be required to wear the same colours)

Where to buy: 

DanceDirect ( website or I can do a school order, but only once I have at least 10 parents interested in the order. 


All parents are required to leave the studio once the class starts (please do let me know if your child might get very sad, of course you can stay in that case).

Please make sure children go to the toilet before the class. 

Please collect your child at the end of the class and try to get ready as soon as possible, as there is another class starting straight after yours. . Please don't let your child to run around once your class is finished.

As we don’t have changing rooms, please change inside of the studio (not in the corridor).

No children hanging on the ballet bars please, I will reinforce that at the beginning of each class, but please remind your child about it as well. 

No scooters/ bicycles etc to be used inside of the school

Payments: please pay at the beginning of each term to avoid long queues after each class, as we need to get the next class started.
