CLASS CREDIT POLICY
* If a class is missed you may use that class as a credit against any other class in the same calendar month.
* The following classes are available - Fairytale Ballet, Pre Primary and Primary Ballet, Discobabies Dance and Cheer and Tap.
* Please advise your instructor before the class starts that you are using a credit.
* Class credits must be used for the child who has missed a class and not siblings.
LATE PAYMENT FEES
A £5 late payment fee will be added to any invoices that are not paid by the first class of the month. You can pay by BACS, cash or cheque. Please contact us if you are away during the payment period.
Classes are booked monthly excluding school holidays. Invoices will be sent via email during the 3rd week of each month and invoices must be paid on or before the first class of the following month.
We understand that sometimes children will leave us to try other activities. We do require 4 weeks written notice of any student who is leaving us. If no notice is given you will be liable for 4 weeks fees.
CLASS POLICY AND UNIFORM - Uniforms are compulsory.
* All children must be wearing a uniform. Children must be well presented and in the correct uniform for their class. Wearing a uniform helps children to get into the right mind set and to feel part of something special.
* Fairytale ballet minis and midis starter kits are £34.99.
* Bronze Ballet medal test classes upwards - Magenta leotard with voile skirt.
*Dance and Cheer - Black logo T shirts ordered through your instructor.
*Bronze Tap classes upwards - Blue Steppingstones T shirts ordered through your instructor.
*Uniforms details can be found and purchased through www.balletballet.uk
*Wrap arounds or Hoodies must be worn when it is cold - Hoodies are ordered through your instructor.
* Proper ballet shoes must be worn to class, slippers must not be worn as they are no good for your child's feet. Ballet elastics must also be sewn onto the shoes.
* Girls' Hair must be neat and tidy and tied back off the face. Again we are very relaxed and do not enforce buns for ballet, however long hair does need to be off the face, if you can get your child’s hair into a bun that would be a bonus!
* Please arrive before your class is due to start, there are areas to get changed before coming into the hall if there are classes already running. Please do not get your child changed at the back of the hall if the class has already started, it is very disrupting for the teacher and other students. On Mondays and Saturdays we are now using the prayer room at the Methodist church.
* At St Andrews in Clevedon please use the prayer room at the side of the main hall.
* Fairytale Ballet – Siblings are very welcome to watch class but if they do get upset or unsettled we kindly ask you to step outside the room as this can be disrupting to other children in the class who are trying to concentrate.
*Children will be assessed in class and it is at the teachers' discretion as to when they are ready to move up to the next class.
BEHAVIOUR DURING CLASS
* Shouting, Screaming, back chat and bad attitude will not be tolerated during class and your child will be asked to sit out.
* As some of the children are very little we understand 'off' days, however saying 'NO' to their teacher is not acceptable, please have a conversation with your little one that if they don't want to do something then please sit quietly to one side, and join in when they are ready.
* If a child has to be asked to calm down, sit down or not run around more than 3 times they will be asked to sit out to take time to reflect their behaviour before continuing with the class. Children will always be asked to finish their lesson.
Ella has recently started ballet lessons with Steph. She has thoroughly enjoyed her lessons, often practising her moves at home. Steph is very encouraging and makes the lesson great fun.
