Sadly we have been experiencing some issues with sending emails to those with Microsoft domains (Hotmail, Outlook, MSN, Live, etc.) for the past few weeks. However, this is currently being investigated by our email provider.


To those that have Microsoft domains we will be sending all correspondence from our old hotmail account, dance4all@hotmail.co.uk.


We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and we hope to have this issue to fix shortly.

Hi there, this week marks the start of Block 2, this block covers the dates 26/11/2018 to 29/02/2018. We break up for the Christmas holidays on Friday 14th December and resume again in the new year on Monday 7th January.


For those unfamiliar with our 'Blocks', these are our teaching terms and billing cycles. Each Block is usually 10 school weeks long, except from the final Block before the end of the accademic year. All curent students should receive an invoice this week, so please keep an eye on your inbox/check your spam. If you didn't receive an email by Saturday, please contact us so we can make sure we have the right email for you.


Another important date to remember is that our Christmas show will be on Saturday 15th December, a fully detailed email about the event (including times, what to bring and so on) will be sent out by the end of this week.


New students are still able to join anytime during the year, even mid-Block and you will only be charged for the weeks remaining in a billing cycle. So if you're interested please don't hesitate to contact us via email to get youself booked into a trial class or if you have any questions.

Hello! We hope everyone is settling into the new accademic year well. If you've tried to access our site over the past couple of weeks you were likely unable to, however thankfully everything is fixed now. The issue was to do with the change to our domain registar.


Thank you so much for everyone's patience!

Hello all! It's been a while and sadly summer is almost at an end however that means that classes soon start again which will be the week commencing Monday 10th September.


Returning Students

Please let us know whether or not you will be returning by Saturday 25th August! This is very important so we have an idea of numbers and also so we can save your space in class.


New Students

New students are always welcome to join at any point in the year. If you are interested in any of our classes just send us an email so that we can answer any of your questions and book you into your first class. There's no deadline to join as mentioned however please note that class spaces are on a first come first serve basis, and our class sizes are smaller than most other dance classes to ensure that everyone gets enough individual focus.


We look forward to seeing old and new faces this September, and remember to just send an email if you have any questions.

Please also make sure that their uniform is in presentable condition with no stains, rips or ladders (this includes shoes). Please let Angharad know if new items are required before the day they are performing.


Tights are very important! Due to child protection if your child has no tights they will not be able to perform.

Photography

After our performance slot we plan to take photos of our students backstage. If you have indicated on your child’s permission form that you do not want your child’s image to be used in publicity shots, we will have a list of names on the day to make sure they aren’t included in any of our photos.



On the Day for Each Performance Slot

If your child is unable to perform last minute please call us to let us know ASAP on 07736 229076.


Please arrive promptly at the times indicated above to the backstage entrance of the Sports Village Stage.


Before handing your child over please be sure to sign them in on our sign in/out sheet and confirm the contact number we have for them in case of an emergency. Children must be signed in or out by a parent or guardian or we must have written permission prior to the day informing us who will be signing on your behalf.


After their performance there will be photos taken backstage.


Children will then be taken out of their costumes. Please do not leave with any.


Afterwards your child will be handed back to you (or sooner if you do not want them to partake in the photos) but please be sure to sign them out on our sheet. Please wait outside the backstage entrance for this.
