FAQ's

 

What do they need to wear?

If this is your child's first try at dancing we advise all parents that they wear something comfy and supportive on the feet and free moving clothes so that they have a full range of movement. Later on, if they choose to continue they may want dance shoes that can aid the dancing skills and will be needed if they go on to do exams in their chosen style and competitions.

Do we need to be present when the lesson is on?

We ask all parents or guardians to stay at the studio whilst their child is involved with a lesson if any accidents arise during the lesson we wish for the parent to be available straight away for assistants. Our teachers are DBS checked and First Aiders so your child will be safe at all times.

HOW LONG ARE THE CLASSES?

Most of our kid's lessons are 45 minutes. For the younger age groups they are only 30 minutes, We believe this is an ideal time for learning for kids especially younger ones. Each lesson will have plenty of activity and content full of fun! 

 competitions and Exams?

HDC are members of the I.S.T.D and all our teachers teach the same syllabus. When your child has danced for some time and has shown interest in taking dancing further we offer the option to take an I.S.T.D exam. Each exam is different and depending on the dance style can change the exam structure. The cost of an exam starts off around £22.50 and gets more expensive the higher the grade. After taking an exam your child will then be able to compete at competitions around the country! More will be discussed with you and your child when this becomes an option.
