  • If payment is not paid by the date given, for the child to continue the will be a £5 administration charge. Should there be any difficulty in payment of fees, do not hesitate to contact us so that arrangements can be made.

  • Where fees remain unpaid, RHSD reserve the right to suspend a student from classes, or in severe cases, to pass your details on to our debt collection agency. Students receiving discount may lose this in cases of continual late payment.

  • No refunds will be given for missed classes. Should RHSD have to cancel or adjust a class, every effort will be made to arrange an alternative, or a refund will be given.

  • A new student may take a 3 week trial class during our intake periods. Should the student then decide to join the class, they must pay the remaining balance for the term.

Section 2 – During class time:


  • Parents of children who are unable to go to the toilet by them self must stay in the building at all times to take their child to the toilet when needed. 

  • Some classes run back to back on the timetable without a break. Students should be dressed ready to start their class before entering the studio and leave promptly at the end. 

  • Uniform is compulsory in all classes. Long hair should be tied up in a bun or ponytail and all jewellery should be removed. Any student who is dressed unsuitably will be asked to sit out. Please do not wear any dance shoes outside of the studio, or any outdoor shoes inside the studio. See our website for full uniform requirements or ask one of our staff for more information.

  • Students will not be permitted to leave the studio alone unless prior consent has been given. RHSD are only responsible for children inside the studio during their class time. Children should not be left before or after class in the changing rooms or waiting area unsupervised unless they are deemed able to fully look after themselves. 

  • Please ensure that your child goes to the toilet before class and do not send your child in with food or sweets unless permitted by the teacher.  

  • Parents are not permitted to watch classes except in exceptional circumstances at the discretion of the class teacher. Such circumstances should be discussed with the class teacher prior to the class. 

  • Students are responsible for their own property and bring items at their own risk.  

  • It is requested that parents/guardians respect the decisions of faculty members and request to speak to a senior member of staff should an issue arise. Student safety and well being is always of upmost importance to RHSD. 

  • It is essential for the efficient and safe teaching of dance for a degree of physical contact to take place. This is to help prevent injury caused by faulty technique and poor posture. This will be done in a professional manner and the intention of contact will be made clear. Should you have a problem with this policy please contact RHSD prior to class enrolment. 





Section 3 – Attendance:

  • Parents/guardians are responsible for regularly checking their emails, the notice board or Facebook in order to be fully aware of all upcoming events. However on the rare circumstance the classes need to be cancelled or changed RHSD will do its best to contact parents through email, phone and Facebook.

  • Attendance at a similar dance or theatre school should be disclosed to the principal upon registration to ensure there will be no conflict in teaching. Although we belief additional classes and learning from different teachers is beneficial to a child’s learning, attendance to a particular class may be denied if the principal believes this could cause difficulties.

  • Students should attend all classes where possible and should be prepared to start at the correct time. Any student who is late may be asked to sit out for their own safety if they have missed the warm up. However RHSD will ensure learning is still taken place.

  • Parents /guardians are asked to inform RHSD if a child is unable to attend a class. However if a child is able to we encourage students who are not able to dance to watch their class as learning can still be taken place.

  • Transfer to a different class is subject to availability and must be organised in advanced.

  • Should any student wish to discontinue any class or leave the school, Rachel Must be informed in advance.

Section 4 – Exams and Performance


  • In some classes students will work towards bbodance examinations. Students will only be entered once they have achieved the required standard and have shown the correct level of attendance/commitment. Examinations may occur during school time and students may be required to get leave from school. RHSD will endeavour to keep this type of activity to a minimum. Students participating in exams will be required to attend extra classes during the few weeks before. 

  • All classes and rehearsals must be attended in the run up to performances or exams in order for participation to be permitted. Should attendance become below the acceptable standard on such occasions, RHSD reserve the right to withdraw a student from the event at any time.

Section 5- Online and Pre-recorded classes

  • In classes students are encouraged to take the class to their own level.

  • As we are unable to correct with pre-recorded videos if you are finding any exercise too much, students should take an easier option or take a break. 

  • You understand the risks when taking online classes and understand that the school does not hold responsibility for injuries.

  • If you have a pre existing injury you must let the teacher know before taking the class. Variations and advice can then be given.

  • Students should not take part in the class if you are feeling unwell or injured.

  • Communication is very important when taking online classes. RHSD offers free advice, giving variations or other options if you are struggling to perform a move or found something too much. 

  • Zoom class details are only given to students who have paid and taking part in the class. All classes contain individual ID and password to insure safety.

  • Any content shared online will not be posted elsewhere unless stated clearly
