Bingley Dance is primarily a fun studio but we do have a serious side as well.
We hold medal examinations on various dates throughout the year where an independent examiner comes from the United Kingdom Alliance of Dance Teachers to take the exam.
It is compulsory for all pupils under 18 to take three medal exams per calendar year, as this gives the children something to aim for and encourages them to improve.
Purple and Orange are our school colours at Bingley Dance Studio and all children (except the Tiny Tots class) will be expected to wear dance wear in these two colours. It can be a mixture of the two colours or just one. Crop tops, tank tops, cycling shorts, hot pants, leggings, unitards, leotards and catsuits in lycra or stretch velvet are suitable.
Although we prefer the above, trousers may be worn but they must be dance trousers in the school colours and be made of either lycra or stretch velvet. Track suit bottoms are not suitable except for boys.
Payment and Membership
After the first month (or part of depending when you start) all children’s classes are to be paid for calendar monthly and the fees are due on the first lesson of the month. The fees are averaged out throughout the year. Fees must be paid whether lessons are taken or not (apart from holidays when we must be notified on payment of fees). No refunds will be given for classes not attended.
One full calendar months notice is required for termination of classes or one full month’s fees in lieu of notice.
As we are a private members clubs everyone attending either a class or social dance must be a member by law.
An enrolment/membership form must be completed when accepted as a pupil. The cost of the membership is £4.50 per annum for Under 18’s and senior citizens and £6.00 per annum for adults. A 25p surcharge per class is made for temporary membership.
