Parent Information

Newsletter

 

The Just Dance Newsletter is published at the end of each term and features current information and details of student success stories that have occurred during the term.

General Discipline

 

We do not encourage parents to watch classes as this does cause distraction for all the students. However parents are invited to watch at the end of term. We expect children to be wearing the correct uniform and to be well groomed at all times.

Dance Festivals

 

Just Dance is keen to encourage its students to take part in dance festivals. Miss Jade will approach you if she feels your child is ready to dance in a festival for either a solo item or to be part of a group. If a pupil is selected for a festival, we will advise parents of the additional rehearsal time required and the associated costs.

 

It is worth knowing that festivals require a considerable amount of time and expense and it is advised that both students and parents think carefully about the commitment involved.
