Does my child need to have been previously enrolled in Dance Ability to join the Digital Dance Classes?
No. Our Digital Dance Classes are open to new families who wish to join, however due to the specific needs of the class, the decision to accept new participants into the class is made by the teacher.
My child is enrolled in Dance Ability, previously attending normal studio based classes. If we do not book the digital classes, will my child lose their place in the normal programme?
Our Digital Dance Classes are for a limited time only, until it is safe for all programmes to return to the studios.
Participating in Digital Dance Classes will be on a first come first served basis. This will not relate to enrolment in our normal studio based classes. We hope to resume our studio based programme as soon as it is safe to have our participants and their families back in our building. We will communicate with all families that would be re-enrolling in the studio based classes when it is clear that we are able to re-open in our usual format.
I am on the waiting list for Dance Ability. If we join the digital dance classes, will I be offered a place on the normal studio-based programme when it is able to restart?
Existing enrolled participants will be offered a place first on our return.
Can my child do a taster session before booking a block?
You have the option to book a singular week as a taster session. Following this you can book the remaining weeks of the term.
Please note that as classes are bookable on a first come-first served basis, we cannot guarantee availability, even if your child has attended the taster session.
