If you can’t find the answer you are looking for please reach out to us, we are always here to help at DCA.

Can we try before commitment?

Yes, definitely! You can pay a one class fee which will be taken off the full term fees if you join.

Do I have to attend regularly?

We are a hobby school and appreciate that there are times you can not come to class. Most of our children miss from time to time and we organise the classes in such a way that the children will not be affected. There is no pressure to attend every class. However there will be more development and performing opportunities for children who attend each week. Like with anything the more you practice the better you become! There is the opportunity to book one off private lessons to learn what they missed and to keep up their development . Children are not to miss class on the run up to shows. 

Are there refunds for missed classes?

There are no refunds for missed classes . If there is another class on the timetable that is suitable then you could attend that class as a make-up. The class must be taken within 4 weeks of the class missed.

How do the exams work?

Every Year an IDTA examiner flys in from the UK to examine our students. All children enter for Rosettes and Stardance Awards. These are totally hobby level and are a great reward and motivator for all the hard work the children have invested in their classes. Children who take their dancing more seriously have the opportunity to take accredited exams. Many of our students have gone into the profession this way.

Can all my children have the same class time?

Yes ! Our Saturday dance classes are set up so that children from the ages of 3 – 12 years old can all have class at the same time . They will be in separate classes according to their age.

Why can't my children wear whatever they want to class?

Like any other activity such as judo, horse riding and swimming the correct clothes enable you to dance safely. For our combo classes we have lots of uniforms to choose from so that children can express their individuality. Ballet requires discipline and formality hence children wearing the same uniform. Exam boards require a set uniform. We supply uniforms to take the stress away from parents trying to find the right items.

My child is a complete beginner. Can he/she still join?

Absolutely! Our classes are general level. We have over 20 years of experience and we know how to install confidence and keep your child challenged no matter what level they are. As long as your child has a passion to dance she/he is in the right place!

My child really takes his/her dancing seriously and maybe would like to go into the profession. Can you help?

Yes! We are a teaching school and have put students through teaching qualifications (diploma 3 and 4). We can also prepare children who wish to go to a professional dance collage and become dancers. Children will attend their normal dance classes and in addition will have private classes. From the age of 12 years a personalised programme of study is put together focusing on the students goals.
