Information For Parents
New to the dance school? New dancers may wear any form of tight fitting, easy to move in clothing. Leotards, sportswear, leggings and tight fitting t-shirts are all fine. Once dancers have settled in, we encourage the school uniform to be worn, detailed below. Uniform can be purchased at Harding's Dancewear located on Mansfield Road. For all subjects, please make sure that hair is tied back.

New dancers can pay weekly for the first half term. After that, fees are payable monthly via standing order, meaning it's one less thing for you to think about! We run in line with school holidays, so classes are on for 39 weeks of the year. Standing order payments are worked out by spreading the cost of the 39 weeks' worth of classes throughout 10 months of the year.
