Classes are purchased in a minimum block of 11 weeks.  The classes will generally run consecutively and on occasions run over school half term holidays.  If a child starts part way through a term the payment will be due only for the weeks after the trial and this will be calculated for you.   Once you have taken your trials, fees are then payable in full or 3 post-dated cheques or we recommend Bacs.

The full cost of the term must be paid within the 1st two weeks, then written bills will be sent by week 4.   If no payment is received after the bill has been sent, a £5 late fee will be added.  We reserve the right to suspend your child’s classes until payment has been received.  Makers of Dance Energy can be paid by the following methods- cash, cheque or via the internet.   All deposits for any activity, costume or show are non refundable.
