Saturday First Steps Class
From 9.00-10.30am on Saturdays for a set price of £6.00
The younger students engage in 15-minute sessions of the following disciplines. Tap, Ballet, Modern, Acrobatics and after a break for a drink and a biscuit, Drama. The short classes allow for the challenging concentration span of this age group (2-5yrs). Classes are supervised with two permanent teachers who are also first aid trained, and one assistant. The Academy carries out regular fire drills to ensure the safety of the children. Medals are available to be taken in this class with no obligation; parents will be notified when a child is ‘ready’ to take a medal. The first steps also take part in shows, which again are not compulsory. See a member of staff for any further information. Once children have been settled into the class we expect the uniform to be worn for class and hair to be off the face and with an added plea to parents to “be on time please.”

Discipline for this age group is higher than in the Junior and First steps classes.

Failure to do so will result in children not partaking in the relevant performance. None of the goals undertaken by the Academy are compulsory for this reason.

For those not taking all of the disciplines half an hour classes are charged at £3.50 and one hour classes are charged at £5.00. Self-discipline for this age group is required. Students are expected to be neatly groomed, punctual and be committed to any goal (exam/production) that they have agreed to undertake.
