Cancellation policy: we require 1 month's written notice and fees for cancellation.
  • Can my child do a taster class before signing up to anything?
    Yes, of course. We offer a 2 week paid trial, (between £12-18, depending on the class length), so that your child can get a good feel for the class and has time to settle in. If you would like to join us after the trial, we will let you know how to pay a monthly subscription for your child's dance class fees.
  • What does my child need to wear?
    For a trial class, comfortable clothing to dance in with the following footwear options: Ballet - bare feet or ballet shoes Tap - trainers or tap shoes Jazz, Musical Theatre & Commercial - trainers or jazz shoes. Acro- bare feet Once children have joined the school, dancewear can be ordered directly through our uniform page. We are flexible with dancewear for preschool, but once children are aged 4, there is a set uniform which we ask all students to wear. This allows teachers to see & help with alignment. It also helps dancers to look really smart for exams.
  • Can I watch my child's class?
    For Little Bear Feet (18 months-3 years) we love our parents being at class and joining in the fun, assisting little ones to get the most out of class! For classes aged 3+, we ask that parent/carers wait in the waiting area. Both the teacher and assistant will do their very best to help your child settle in. Please come and watch the last 5-10 minutes of the first class to see how your child has got on. We have a yearly show and a watching week at the end of the Spring & Summer terms.
  • Do you run classes in the school holidays?
    All of our classes are during school term time only, but we do run Summer & Christmas workshops, nursery and private lessons during the holidays. Please get in touch if you would like more info or to book.
  • Can my child join mid-term?
    Yes, if there is a space in the class, your child is welcome to join us mid-term (please get in touch for availability)
