Teachers are happy to discuss the progress of a student at any time and to advise on any aspect of a students dance training or future career choices within the theatre industry.
Students are entered for examinations at the teachers discretion. We reserve the right to withdraw a candidate if the examination fee is not paid by the closing date or if a number of coaching lessons are missed.
Mobile phones and any other electronic devices belonging to the student must be turned off and kept out of sight if brought into the studio.

We cannot be held responsible for students once outside the studios. We would ask for your co-operation with the following:
Physical contact appropriate to the teaching of dance may be necessary by the teachers. If you have concerns about this, please contact the Principal.
A first aid is available at the hall and at any venue being used for classes, performances and examinations. Very occasionally a minor injury occurs which requires simple medical aid, such as the use of a plaster or application of a cool pack.
Parents are required to give their permission for the administration of immediate and/or necessary first aid treatment when completing the registration and consent forms.
If you DO NOT agree to your child receiving attention for a minor injury or if they have a condition or allergy which means you do not give you consent, please inform us in writing.
