Guidelines for taking part in dance or exercise classes
It is widely known that exercise is good for you and whilst our instructors are fully qualified and trained in the subject that they teach, we strongly recommend that you check with your doctor/specialist before starting any exercise programme particularly if you have any pre-existing health conditions such as
- Arthritis or joint problems
- High/Low Blood pressure
- Headaches, Dizzy Spells or Fainting
- Heart problems or chest pains
- Lung or respiratory problems
- Any other conditions that may be affected by exercise
If before or during your dance/exercise session you have any concerns about the nature of the class or require an alternative exercise to suit your health needs, please speak to the instructor immediately. In the case of Under 18’s a parent or guardian must undertake this responsibility to check with their doctor/specialist prior to starting any form of exercise should they have health concerns.
Please ensure that you wear appropriate clothing and footwear for the class you are taking part in. Chewing gum is strictly prohibited at all times.
Please arrive on time for all classes. We may refuse admission if the warm up session has been missed.
Please turn off mobile phones
Food and drink is not permitted in the studios (except for water in adult classes)
Child Protection and Safeguarding
The safety of children during dance classes is of paramount importance to us. Whilst your child is receiving tuition in a studio they are under the care of one of our teachers. However can we please remind parents that we are not responsible for the welfare of children at the following times
- Whilst waiting for the class to be called into the studio
- If the child asks to leave the class for a toilet break
- If the class has an interval for refreshments
- After the class has finished or whilst waiting between two classes if attending more than one
Please be aware of this should you choose to leave your child unattended at the centre.
