PAYMENT OPTIONS: Termly, 2-4 instalments or monthly for year
Our mission is to make the benefits of dance available to everyone. We welcome children and adults with special needs, and if you are on a low income, there are payment options which may help. Where a family has three or more siblings attending, you only pay for the two taking the most expensive classes.
There's a free trial class, after which you have the option of paying weekly till the next term begins, if your child isn't sure about the new activity; it takes more than one trial class for us to build a relationship with your child. If they are shy of new activities, bring them to watch a class first, but not at the present time due to coronavirus restrictions.
Some Adult classes are 'drop-in' classes paid weekly, and others require termly booking. If you can't find the information you need, contact us for a swift response.
If really interested, your children can access A DANCE, (meaning that more classes cost less. Extra classes needed (e.g. school holiday practise for exams, rehearsals for solos etc). can be added by mutual arrangement or sometimes taken for free, or by joining in other scheduled classes at no extra cost.
Don't buy dance clothing before joining!
There's a uniform for each class, and to help the children be confident of their standard, 'dressing up' dance clothes and pink tutus (lovely though they are for play), aren't helpful!
Our policy is that you don't need to get everything before you come to the class - after all, your child may decide they'd rather learn rock climbing - but when they ARE sure they want to learn from us - do get the right stuff! There are specific uniforms for exams, and even if children don't want to take these, it saves money for you when they are involved in performances if everyone has the same leotard or other item that can become part of a group costume.
We try to keep everything as low-cost as possible by getting many items from a teachers' warehouse. Many sizes are in stock in our store, and others can be ordered and arrive in a couple of days. If needed, there are often second hand 'giveaways' and pre-loved Tap shoes available from generous older students. Badly fitted ballet shoes, can damage feet and lead to poor technique as feet can't be used properly, so we'll advise you on the correct sizing. We stock uniform items, and have an online delivery service, or can advise on the best shops to try if special fitting is required.
For most adult classes, the rules are very relaxed; some participants come to Adult Tap wearing their office clothes, others in track suits - anything goes!
