Students do not need to participate in the exam if they do not want too. We do recommend that all students take part of this exam for experience. Any further questions please ask your dance teacher.

Remember to pay your fees!

ATTENTION ALL PARENTS/GUARDIANS, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR FEES ARE PAID BY THE SECOND WEEK OF CLASSES. IF THIS IS NOT POSSIBLE YOU NEED TO CONTACT RECEPTION AND ASK FOR AN EXTENTION SO YOU DON’T RECEIVE A LATE FEE.
