Frequently Asked Questions

Am I allowed to watch my child?

In our Dance with Mummy classes adults stay and dance with their little ones for the duration of the class.  We also have a watching week every term where you can invite other family members to come in and watch the class. 

In our Twinkle 2’s classes an adult is required to be with their little one for the duration of the class.  The amount that you join in all depends on your child and how much they want you too.  The class is structured in a way that helps children transition into our preschool classes, where they dance independently for the duration of the class, so we encourage children to join in independently at certain points in this class, but this is all done at the child’s own pace.  We also have a watching week every term where you can invite other family members to come in and watch the class. 

 

Our Prima Preschool classes are the first part of your child’s dance journey where they dance independently for the duration of their class.  Parents are invited to watch their child's first class as we want parents to see how their little one gets on.  Parents are then required to wait in the waiting room for their child after this. We do, however, pride ourselves in knowing that every child is unique and while some are happy to run straight into class without an adult, some find this difficult.  We therefore work with each family to make sure your child is happy and confident in their class before asking you to wait in the waiting room.  Throughout the term we invite parents to watch various little bits of class, and we also have watching week 3 times a year where parents and other family members are invited in to watch a whole class.

 

Parents with children starting our Inspiring Infants classes are invited to watch their child's first class to see how they get on.  We then request children are left in the class. We do realise that not all children are happy to do this straight away so we do work with each child and their family to make sure they are happy before they are left in the class.  We have two infants classes.  One where parents are invited to drop their child at the class and leave them for the duration and one where parents are required to wait in the waiting room.  Parents and other family members are invited to watch a whole class during our end of term watching week, which is held 3 times a year.

Can I do a trial session?

Yes, we offer two different ways of trialling our classes.  A one week trial and a three week trial. 

 

How long is a term?

Our terms are from 11-14 weeks long and fall roughly in line with school terms.

 

Do I have to pay for a whole term?

We offer two ways to pay for our classes.

One price for a full term and a slightly higher price for half a term.  We believe this makes us an accessible class for all.

For a full list of prices please contact us.  Our classes are various lengths, so the prices are all slightly different.

 

What should my child wear?

We love the fact that all children are individual, and we also love to see this in our dance classes.  For this reason, we do not have a compulsory uniform.  So as long as children can move around in it, they are welcome to wear it. 

We do have a few items that we don’t allow though

Jeans

Long dresses or skirts

Long princess dresses

Crop or belly tops.

While we do not have a compulsory uniform, we are in the process of bringing out a line of dancewear which you are more than welcome to purchase. 

 

Do you offer ‘drop-in’ classes?

At Kids Kan Dance we pride ourselves on knowing every child and their grown up’s name and their favourite colour.  We also like to make sure that every child in class has their own piece of any equipment we are using, a space at the parachute and a mat to sit on.  We are just not able to offer this level of service as a drop-in class.  Having said that we do sometimes do ‘drop in’ dance parties, so if this is more your thing then join our Facebook page to find out about these.
