For our classes to run smoothly we kindly ask you to read the following:

  • No bags will be allowed in the Studio’s. Please leave all items in pigeon holes provided for you. No phones will be allowed in the studios (Older Students)
  • For safety we require No Parents will be allowed into the studio 1, 2& 3. Children perform & learn better without having any distractions.

  • If you need to speak to a teacher, please arrange a time with the office or send Jameille an email please do don’t speak with teachers in between classes. Our classes are a on a tight time frame and we feel it to be very important that you are getting your full class that you are paying for.
  • We have a parents waiting area which is in the office area. Also have seating outside. You are very welcome to wait between classes.
  • If you child needs to leave class early please send a note along with them so their teacher is aware.
  • If you are happy for your child to leave the studio at any time, we require a written permission slip from parent / guardian.
  • We pride ourselves and have high expectations with our uniform. Please make sure that the correct uniform is worn to each class and hair is doing correct for each style. All ballet students MUST have their hair in a bun.
