FAQ

Are students moved about the classes and do they have chance to move up the levels?

Yes the dancers with us are monitored on a regular basis and will be moved to a higher class on the teachers recommendation. 

Do we have to pay for classes?

Yes, all our weekly classes are £6 an hour. Once you have been allocated a place you will receive an invoice half-termly, including information on the ways to pay your fee. Please note: Unpaid fees will result in you child’s place being withdrawn.

Do we reapply each half-term?

No once you are with us we simply invoice you half-termly, before the end of each current half-term. If your child decides not to return, we request that you let us know at the end of term, so that we can bring in new dancers from the waiting list.

Are the fees payable in advance?

Yes. Cash or cheques made payable to Shake are accepted, or you can pay by BACS.

How is the year organised?

We run 6 half-terms per year in line with the Hampshire school term dates. We break for school holidays.

Can I just observe the class?

Spectators of any kind are not allowed. Parents may enter for the last 5 minutes of class. 

What should students wear?

Anything that is comfortable. Trainers, tracksuit trousers/leggings and t-shirts are the best combination.

Is there any uniform to buy?

There are Shake t-shirts and caps available to buy but uniform is not compulsory.

Are there any drinks served at the classes?

No. Students should bring their own drinks for the classes. 

How many students are in each class?

24 students per class is the limit and some classes are currently full. If we cannot allocate your child a place we will add them to our waiting list.
