It's best to give Helena a call first to discuss which class your child should attend. Then just come along to try it out!
You'll be asked to fill out a registration form at your first class. Or if you'd like to fill out the form in advance you can download it here and bring it along to your child's first class.
Please note, for health and safety reasons a registration form must be completed for each child before they are allowed to participate in a dance class.
Which class should my child attend?
We've provided age guidelines on our timetable to help you choose the right class, however if you're unsure it's best to give Helena a call or drop her an email. You can find out more about the dance styles on offer on our classes page.
When are classes?
Classes take place every week during term time. There are no classes during school holidays. For term dates, please see our diary dates page.
Where do they take place?
Classes take place at Abbots Morton Village Hall and Inkberrow Church Hall, Worcestershire.
Our classes are conveniently located for Evesham, the Lenches, Inkberrow, Flyford Flavell, Harvington, Alcester, Bidford, Pershore, Pinvin, Bishampton, Redditch and neighbouring villages. For directions, see ourcontact page.
What should my child wear?
For the first lesson, anything that she or he can comfortably move around in. Tracksuit bottoms or leggings and a t-shirt are fine to begin with. Once your child has decided to carry on with classes, you will need to purchase the school uniform. You can order this from our online dancewear shop. School uniform is as follows:
Story ballet/primary ballet (girls): Aqua skirted leotard, pink ballet socks, pink ballet shoes
Story ballet/primary ballet (boys): Navy ballet shorts, white t-shirt, white ballet socks, white ballet shoes
Grade 1 ballet upwards (boys): White leotard, navy ballet tights, white ballet shoes, white ballet socks
Tap dance (girls): Purple leotard, black jazz trousers, black tap shoes with toe and heel taps
Tap dance (boys): White t-shirt, black jazz trousers, black tap shoes with toe and heel taps
Modern dance (girls): Purple leotard and black leggingsBl
Modern dance (boys): White t-shirt, black jazz trousers
NB. Children should have bare feet for modern dance (socks/tights can be slippy).
There is no set uniform for adult classes - just wear something comfy you can move in!
How much do classes cost?
Class prices are as follows:
30 minute lesson: £4.50 per class
45 minute lesson: £5.50 per class
60 minute lesson: £6.50 per class
Adult classes: £7.50 per hour pay as you or £6.50 per hour if paid in block.
The first class may be paid for separately, after which classes are payable on a termly basis. Unfortunately we are unable to take card payments - you can pay by cash, cheque or bank transfer.
Are there exams?
There may be opportunities for children to take exams if they wish to. Exams are encouraged as they help to give pupils a sense of acheivement for all their hard work. We do however recognise that not all children may want to take exams, so they are not mandatory at JUMP Dance Academy.
