Do students need to have experience in dance?
No! Absolutely not. Our classes are open to all levels and abilities. We adjust our teaching styles to our student’s experience to ensure our classes are enjoyable and accessible for all – children and adults alike!
Is it possible to have a trial class?
Yes! We offer trial sessions for all children or adults who may be unsure whether the classes will be suitable for them. Contact us for more information.
Is there anything specific students need to wear?
No, we only ask that you are comfortable and able to move freely. For children’s classes, where possible, we ask they were a black t-shirt and black leggings or shorts.
What dance styles do you teach?
In our children’s classes, we tach a combination of jazz and commercial styles. We also include musical theatre.
For adult class styles, please take a look under ‘What we offer’ in our menu. From Latintone to Yogatone, private classes to exclusive events, we have styles to suit all ages and abilities.
What’s the earliest age a dancer can start?
Our classes are tailored to all ages. Our children’s classes are arranged per each age group, which can be as young as 4 years old.
How do I know which class to enroll my child in?
The dance classes are organised according to age groups in each school year. So you will enroll your child in the class that is for that year group.
How long is a class?
Our adult classes vary by style. Children’s sessions usually last to be 1 hour and 15 minutes which give time for the children to change between school and the dance class.
How do I register my child for a class?
We have set up an online registration called Class4kids. You will receive a link from the school to register your child or you can find it here.
How do I pay my child's tuition?
Are there any other expenses outside of children's tuition?
I missed the deadline for children's class registration, can I still enroll?
Yes, we do allow children to start a few weeks into the term.
Can I observe my child's dance class each week?
We do open classes for parents at the end of each term so they are able to see what their children have been working on during the term.
Do you offer classes for boys?
Yes, of course! All our classes are suitable for both girls and boys. Everyone is welcome!
