What do I need to wear for classes?
Whilst our uniform can be found via the uniform tab, please don't buy anything special! Settle in first. Obviously, if you're starting tap it's hard to tap without tap shoes- but wear something hard soled initially to get a feel for it.
Please wear something comfortable that you can move in i.e. leggings/shorts/t-shirt. Please do not wear dresses or jeans.
For ballet/jazz/contemporary bare feet. For street/MT (etc) clean trainers or pumps may be worn (no mud).
How do I buy uniform?
You can buy uniform from us. Seek the uniform tab.
Do you do shows/exams?
Yes we do. Both are optional.
We are fully registered with the RAD/IDTA. We hold 3 exam sessions per year for those interested in progressing through the award scheme.
We also hold yearly shows in a professional working theatre. Taking part in our show is purely optional. At present, we have performances planned for March 2022.
My child is very shy. Can I come into the first class with her/him?
I am terribly sorry but no, not at this time. If you are concerned, (and your child is Reception age)- please consider our pre-school class (parent and child) so you can enter with them.
Can I cancel my place/change class?
You can read our full T& C’s on booking.
