Since the school started in 1999 I have offered the 4th class free to each student. I am pleased to say I am now going to offer it per family. Every 4th class is free of charge.
So if you have 2 children taking 2 classes one class will be free or 2 children taking 1 class and the other taking 3 you still get the 4th free. Families taking 8 classes will get 2 free of charge. I hope this makes sense, please ask if you have any questions.
All payment is due in full within 2 weeks of starting the new term. A deposit for each class is due by December 8th to hold your place. We have so many full classes now that if you do not pay the deposit you are not guaranteed a place next term. If your child is not returning in the SPRING term, please advise before we break up. A day before we start back in January is not a terms notice and you will be charged the full terms fee.
If you pay by cheque please can I ask you not to add any information on the back of the cheque as they will not go through some of the new systems in the bank, all the information should be detailed on the envelope.
GREAT DENHAM HALL
Please remember the schools code 3333. This can only be used to access the building when Brennan school of dance is using the building.
Please can I remind everybody we do expect the students to wear the correct uniform to each lesson. This applies to the preschool ballet as well, some children are attending with their own uniform which is not fair on the other children who are conforming to the school’s rules. Children are turning up without the correct footwear and wearing fashionable items of clothing rather than the uniform, for jazz and Hip Hop the girls know that it is the schools pink t shirt. This also includes hair ALWAYS being tied back before they enter the classroom
To learn any skill, we need commitment from the children. This goes for all the students not just the ones taking exams that term. To reach a good standard of dance and improve your technique and understanding the children need to attend at least 80% of the term. If your daughter or son has missed 4 lessons of the term without a valid reason, I will give their place to another student on the waiting list.
Next term I have been advised for health reasons to take a break from teaching. I will continue to organise the dance school and will on occasions be in class. Miss Bradley, Miss Bell, Miss Land and Miss Steinfeld will continue to teach the children to a high standard. I will be speaking to them weekly if not on a daily basis with any concerns.
Anybody wishing to purchase uniform please text or email me direct. I will forward the items as soon as I have received payment. Any cash payment for fees or uniform must be in a sealed envelope with your child’s name.
