FAQs

  • Are your classes safe with Covid-19?

    MODE has its certificate to recognise that we are covid secure and all the staff have passed Covid training. We have very comprehensive safety procedures, risk assessment and are very strict about the rules. You and your family's safety is our priority and we take this very seriously.
  • Do classes run in the summer?

    No, MODE’s terms run in conjunction with the school term. 3 terms a year and we stop for half term.
  • Does my child need to bring anything to class?

    They need to bring a drink to every class (non-fizzy)
  • How many shows do you do a year?

    We do 1 large show each year in the summer term. We have been asked to perform in the Lord Mayors Show at Christmas, but this is optional and requires additional rehearsals.
  • How will my child develop?

    Each student will progress at a different speed and some make better advances in one style more than another it depends on each individual child.
  • What if my child does not want to attend anymore?

    You will need to notify the office before the term starts.
  • What if we miss?

    Then you can take a top up class; these are available to all students - if you miss a week, notify the office and you can attend any of our other schools and catch up your class, within that term. Unfortunately this is not available on show terms, as routines will vary from class to class.
  • What should my child wear to class?

    Here at MODE, we don’t have a uniform, many of the children like to wear a MODE t-shirt but it is not compulsory. Your child will need to wear clothes that they can move in and a pair of trainers on the feet. If doing jazz (Age 9 and up) jazz shoes are advised but only after the trial, for the trial, soft shoes, socks with grips like trampoline ones or trainers/pumps will do.
  • What will my child be doing each week?

    It depends on the age group (see classes) generally dance classes are broken down into a number of sections. Warm ups, technical exercises, traveling and routines. If it is a show term, the focus is mostly on the show dance only.
  • When does my child move up a class?

    The classes are age based, however if we feel as teachers that your child needs to be challenged more then we will advise accordingly. Sometimes there is a big jump between two classes and we have to make sure the children are ready for that jump.
