HOW WE RUN THINGS

Some of our rules and dress codes

Payments

Kirsten's Dance Academy works on a pay monthly system for our students. New students to the academy are given 4 weeks pay as you dance to gain an experience of the academy and to settle in.

After this time the new student will move onto paying for classes at the beginning of every month.

Adult classes are all pay as you dance as we understand the commitments Adults have outside the studio.

Payment is accepted at Kirsten's Dance Academy's reception by cash or cheque.

Holidays

Kirsten's Dance Academy runs throughout the year with the exception of closing for 2 weeks during the summer. Each student is entitled to 4 weeks holiday that can be taken at any point throughout the year. Once the dancer’s holiday allowance has been used ALL future missed classes will be charged for and will require payment.

Uniform requirements

Uniform standards are vital to dance training and it is important the dancer has an identity to suit the dance discipline she/he is studying. Everything you will need is available to purchase at our studios.
