Can parents watch classes?
In our Baby Bugs and Busy Bees classes, parents participate and interact
in the lessons with their child. In all other classes (apart from your child’s very
first lesson), we ask that parents do not remain in the teaching area as this
can be distracting for the students. Regular performances and
demonstrations throughout the year ensure that you have many
opportunities to see what your
child gets up to in class!
Do parents have to make complicated costumes?
Costumes are an exciting aspect of performance! However, parents are
not expected to sew complicated costumes – we either provide simple
costume suggestions or have costumes available for hire or purchase
at reasonable rates.
Can my child ‘try’ a class before joining?
As most of our classes are full with waiting lists of children who can’t wait to join,
we are unfortunately unable to reserve places for children who are uncertain.
If you are not sure whether your child will like a class or not, we suggest that you
and your child attend an end of term demonstration which will give you a very good
idea as to what the students get up to in class.
Can my child ‘make up’ missed lessons?
We understand that sometimes due to our busy lives, holidays and
illness, it can be difficult to get your child to their class every week –
therefore we are happy for your child to ‘make up’ up to 2 lessons in any term.
If you wish to do this, please book a suitable day and time with our
administration staff. Missed lessons can only be ‘made up’ during the same term
and before the end of week 7 within that term. It is advisable not to get in a
habit of missing lessons and making them up at other times, as children respond
better to consistency. If your child is going to be away from their usual
lesson, please let our office know, even if you do not wish to make up the
When are term fees due?What happens if my child can no longer attend their classes?
Fees for each term are due before the end of the previous term -
the date is always clearly stated on your invoice. After this
date, vacancies are offered to children on
our waiting lists so fees must be paid by the due date to secure your child's place
in the class (if you can not make the full payment by the due date but still want
to keep your place in the class, please just contact our admin staff to make alternative arrangements).
We understand sometimes unforseen
and unfortunate circumstances may arise where you need to re-arrange or
cancel your child's enrolment. Please see our cancellation policy for more information.
