WHAT TO WEAR:

The studio is very cold during the spring and very warm during the summer term, so please make sure your child wears the following:

Autumn and Spring Term: leotard or t-shirt and leggings or tights, ballet shoes, 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 non-slip socks, 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 May/ beginning if 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):

Level 1 light pink (leotard and tights)/ boys plain dark comfortable joggers and white t-shirt

Level 4 white (leotard and tights)/ boys plain dark comfortable joggers and white t-shirt

Level 5-7 black or dark navy leotard and white tights/boys plain dark comfortable joggers and white t-shirt

We will provide skirts for the performance, so your girl can wear any skirt she likes for the class (or no skirt is fine as well)

Where to buy: 

DanceDirect (http://www.dancedirect.com/uk/) website or I can do a school order, but only once I have at least 10 parents interested in the order. Please see the price range bellow/ I will be placing an order in the first week of October, so make sure to email me the following on time: 

Tights £2.75-£4 (price to be confirmed depending on the stock)/ please email me your child’s height and weight  

Leotard £8-£12 (price to be confirmed depending on the stock)/ please email me your child’s clothes size both age and cm

Shoes £7-£10 (price to be confirmed depending on the stock)/ please email me your child’s shoe size/ I will be ordering one size up, as shoes are usually smaller. 

I will confirm the final price before placing the order, so you can decide if you still want to go ahead. 

Of course you can try clothes and shoes in the studio, and we can return/ exchange if something is not fitting properly


CLASS RULES and ETIQUETTE: 

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.
