We are currently excepting enquires for Ballet Technique Acro - Stretch Classes for Adults and Beginners and Adult Yoga classes and hope to offer these in January 2021 when restrictions for adults classes are easier.
All classes will move straight on-line via Zoom if there are any further lock downs.
Our fees are calculated and paid on a termly basis and are paid in advance.
We do not refund if classes are not attended but when restrictions ease you may make up the class missed class in the same week by attending a class of the same grade and genre on a different day of the same week.
If it is your child’s first time at the Academy you may book a 4 week trial and only pay for the first 4 weeks, as it can take some younger pupils a little time to settle in . If your child settles into the class and you wish to sign up for the rest of the term we will then invoice you for the remaining weeks of the term . Payment can be made via Bank Transfer only .
If you would like to reserve a place or book a 4 week trial Please book now , as we tend to get incredibly busy with enquires and due to the social distancing all of our classes will be kept small with limited spaces available.
Please contact us ASAP! We want to make sure all children will have the opportunity to return to dancing safely and physically , to encourage and maintain their wellbeing. You can book a Trial now for January 2021
