What To Wear

Handy Hints


Punctuality To get the most out of class, please arrive 5 minutes before class is due to start, so you are changed and ready to dance. Students of Pre Elementary Level and above should arrive at least 15 minutes prior so they have time to begin a personal warm-up.

When Waiting For Classes In consideration of others, could students please wait outside the studio in the foyer until your class is called.

Safety and Supervision Parents - please try to be on time to collect your children. Please ask your children to wait quietly inside the building rather than out in the car park. Please do not leave other children unattended at the studio - we cannot and will not assume responsibility for supervision of any children other than the students in the class we are teaching.

Water Bottles Please bring a named bottle of water to class especially during the humid summer months.

Have Fun Our classes are upbeat and welcoming, so just enjoy your time in the studio!
