  1. Classes over holidays and half term breaks


There are no classes over the holiday periods and half term breaks. Regular classes stop for the holidays but we do hold lots of exciting workshops. Please visit our events page to see what’s on.



  1. Parents watching lessons


Dance class is a new world for your child to discover, and all students must be comfortable in their environment for them to flourish. For this reason, family members are not invited into the classroom. We believe all children are most focused when parents are not in the studio. However, we have a Parent Watching Week at the end of each term where parents are invited in to watch the last 15 minutes of their child’s lesson. We also have our Christmas and summer shows for parents and family members to come and see their child perform.



  1. Equipment for classes


We provide all equipment as well as yoga mats, blocks, stretching/TheraBands, hand weights and any other kit used in your class. Please bring a towel if you are taking part in one of our high-intensity cardio classes and don’t forget your water bottle! (Water is available at the water station). Please remember to eat before your workout (but not too close to the start of your class, of course!) and keep hydrated!
