How much are the classes?
If the half term is paid upfront, you will be offered the discounted rate of £4 per class (siblings £2 per class). Alternatively, you can PAYG at £5 a class (£2 for siblings).
How do I book a class?
You can book a class through our our online booking system here >> https://tiny-tots-dance.class4kids.co.uk
Can I book a trial?
Yes you can. Trials are charged at a reduced class fee (sometimes FREE - keep an eye on our Facebook page) and you can book your child in for a trial at any time. Simply use the booking system to choose the class you would like to trial.
What age can my child start classes?
We are happy for any child who is confidently walking to come along to a class with us. However, we do feel from 18 Months is around the best age to get the most from our classes.
Do the grown ups need to take part to?
It is also a great bonding opportunity for you both to join in together. In the Tutu class we will begin to encourage your child to start taking part by themselves or with a friend, particulary for the travelling section. However, this is never forced. If your child is not ready to do things by themselves in this class, then there is no pressure for them to do so.
What should I expect in a class?
Why do I have to book my child a place?
We ask that you book your child a place for Health & Safety reasons. Our classes can get very busy and booking with us, not only helps us to manage numbers but also ensures your child has a place each week. We also ask for contact numbers should there be an emergency and we need to contact someone on your behalf.
Do I need to book a place even if I want to PAYG?
Yes. Regardless of how you choose to pay for your classes, you MUST book your child a place. If you would like to PAYG, simply book in for the class of your choice and 'click out' when the system takes you to the payment page. Pay your teacher in class and your teacher will mark it on the system and send you a receipt by email.
How long are the classes?
The classes are 45 mins-1 hour long. Don't worry, we do not expect you and your tiny tots to dance for the full duration of the class. Our class is usually broken down to a welcome, gentle sitting and standing exercises, then onto the more energetic part of the class with instruments, pom poms and a travelling section. It will then continue with a shared story, stimulus or prop to explore then finish with our last dance, a sticker and a biscuit.
What should my child wear?
What would you recommend they wear on their feet?
What does the enrolment fee cover?
The enrolment fee covers the cost of your child's sticker card, stickers and on completion of their sticker card, they will be awarded a certificate and badge. You will only pay one enrolment fee per child and once when you join us.
Is it possible to lose my childs place?
Yes. If you miss 3 classes in a row without prior notice, then we assume you no longer want your place and it may be offered to another child if there is a waiting list.
What if I leave and then want to come back?
If you lose your place and would then like to re-join a class at a later date, then you will need to re-book for your place. If the class you wish to join is full, then you will need to go onto our waiting list and you will be offered a place as soon as one comes up. If not, then you can book in as before.
What if my child doesn't join in?
It is perfectly normal for your child to be a little hesitant in new surroundings amongst new people they have never met, so don’t be alarmed if your child is this way for the first few weeks. Just keep encouraging your child to join in with things you know they will enjoy, banging & crashing the musical instruments are always a big hit and a sure fire way to put a smile on your child’s face! Week by week you will then start to see your child’s confidence grow as they explore their imagination, creativity and the skills they are learning through dance, song & play.
Do your classes only run during term time?
Yes, Our classes run during term time only. However, we do run 'one off' classes during some half terms and workshops during the Easter and Summer Holidays. Please keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates.
