Q: What should I / my child wear for the free trial lesson ?
A: You can wear anything that you can move freely in (for example shorts, t-shirt, leggings and skirt) and soft shoes or bare feet for ballet, and hard soled shoes for tap classes.
Q: What age can my child start Dance Classes ?
A: Most children are ready to start dance classes at 2 1/2 years of age.
Q: Can we stay and watch the lesson ?
A: In our experience, children relax, pay attention, and enjoy the lessons far more without a parent or carer watching as it tends be very distracting to the class. Therefore parents are only allowed to settle a child in for their first class.
Q: Do you run classes in the school holidays ?
A: No we do not, dancing lessons stop during the schools holidays and half terms.
Q: Is there parking available where you hold dance classes ?
A: Yes there is parking at all the venues we use for dance classes, but you will have to pay a charge if you park at the Risborough Springs Car Park.
Q: Is there an opportunity for my child to appear in any shows ?
A: Yes The Shona Clack School of Dance is proud to offer all our students an opportunity to participate in a stage performance, every year for the last 26 years we have put on a Christmas Show which is held in Risborough Upper School. Taking part in the performance helps to build our children’s confidence and improve their self-esteem along with overcoming shyness. It also gives them an exciting and unforgettable experience, and of course helps them to understand the purpose of working hard for the whole year.
