Classes at TLW Dance run on a termly basis, with 3 terms each year running from September through to August. The timetable is subject to change each term, so please ensure you have the correct timetable for your child/ren's classes. Classes run through term time only, with holidays throughout the year which are indicated on the timetables below. Unless otherwise stated, all classes will be held at the TLW Dance studio. Once you have registered for a class at TLW, you will remain on the register until the end of that school year (unless otherwise arranged); you will then be required to re-register for the new school year's classes during the summer term once the new timetable has been finalised.

TLW Dance Tuition Fees
Class costs are worked out hourly and multiplied over the period of a year, then divided by 12 months to create a monthly fee. Depending upon the amount of classes taken each week and the hours danced, TLW Dance offers a discount scheme for multiple classes.  Payments run continuously throughout the school year from September through to August and are payable during the summer holidays.

From September 2017 our new tuition fees will apply and payments can be made directly through our new automated payment system through our Parent Portal . Once you have Registered on our Parent Portal , you will be asked for your card details before being able to book onto any of our new classes from September onwards. This system will supercede our original standing order system, and those parents who currently pay by this method will be required to cancel their standing order from September, with the last payment being made in August 2017. Payments will then be collected on the 1st of each month directly through your payment card.

PARENT PORTAL
  • ALL STUDENTS MUST BE REGISTERED ON OUR ONLINE SYSTEM.
    https://dancestudio-pro.com/online/tlwdance
  • On registering a student, a payment card must be added to your account.
  • Terms and conditions must be accepted by all students and parents/guardians.  Failure to do so could result in a student being asked to leave TLW Dance.

FEES
  1. Fees are paid through our Parent Portal, on the auto-pay system.  This is a safe and secure platform.  A payment card must be registered when you sign up online.  Invoices will be emailed through 5 days prior to the monies being taken on the 1st of each month via auto-pay. TLW will only take tuition fees via auto-pay, NEVER for added extras such as costumes/dancewear/exams; these can be paid through the parent portal.  The tuition fees have been calculated over a 12 month period so payment must be made each month.
  2. If your child decides to leave TLW we request one month's notice.  This notice needs to be in writing and given to reception.  Failure to do so incurs the following month's tuition fees.
  3. Payments for additional costs, such as uniform, exam fees and costumes, are now done through the parent portal.  They can also be paid at reception in a named envelope.
  4. If any payment is returned, an admin charge of £5 will be requested.
  5. TLW cannot offer refunds if the student is absent from class and places cannot be held if a student decides to continue with another activity at the same time as a TLW class.
  6. If TLW should cancel a class, it will do its upmost to reschedule; if however the class has not been rescheduled or your child has not received extra dance time (including exam sessions), the class will be credited.  If class has to be cancelled due to adverse weather conditions, this will not be rescheduled or refunded.
  7. If a student has been asked to leave to TLW due to breach of any of these conditions listed, the fees will not be refunded.
  8. All monies paid in cash or cheque must be received in a sealed envelope with student’s name, amount and reason written on the front.  Please put student’s name on the back of the cheque.

UNIFORM
  1. All students must wear the uniform specific to their class and hair must be tied up off the face, ideally in a bun for Ballet.
  2. If a student is wearing inappropriate uniform, footwear or has untidy hair they may be asked to leave the class.
  3. Students must not wear any jewellery to class.
  4. TLW only provides shoes to borrow for those who are new to TLW, awaiting an order or if shoes have been forgotten.  The shoes are property of TLW Dance and are not there to be used every lesson.  They cannot be swapped so the student has the correct size. We request they are put back as they were found.

CLASSES
  1. Classes run back to back on the timetable so students must be ready to start at the start time of their class time.  There should be minimal disruption as the classes change.
  2. Students are asked to wait quietly in the reception area for their class to start.
  3. Students are invited to take part in examinations when the teacher feels they are ready.  Each student is an individual and some students may progress quicker than others.  The decisions made by the teachers are made in the interest of the students and at the teacher’s discretion.
  4. When students/parents/guardians sign to agree to show and examination participation, all relevant monies are to be paid.  There are no refunds if the student later declines participation. 

CONDUCT
  1. Students are asked to be respectful of their teachers and of each other.  TLW wants all students to be involved, included and valued.  TLW has zero tolerance to bullying and any students found to be involved in such behaviour will be asked to leave immediately.
  2. Students must not talk or sit down in class unless the teacher has given their permission.
  3. Students should not eat in the studio or chew gum during class.  Drinks may be taken into the studio in sports bottles with closed lids; any spillages must be reported immediately.
  4. Students are not permitted to leave the studio without the permission of the teacher.
  5. If a student uses the kitchen area for a drink, they must leave the area clean and tidy.
  6. Students are responsible for their own property and we ask that all dance uniform and shoes are clearly labelled.  TLW Dance will keep lost property for one term and then it will be donated to charity.  Students bring valuables and possessions at their own risk.
  7. TLW is happy for students to wait between their classes and use the foyer area.  We would like to make you aware there is not always a member of staff in this area, so children could be sat without adult supervision.  TLW accepts no responsibility for children in the foyer area.

MISCELLANEOUS
  1. We request that all contact information is kept updated.
  2. TLW requires up to date information on health issues and injuries.
  3. There is a certain level of risk by participating in physical activity, and students taking part in any class or event are doing so at their own risk.
  4. The foyer area has a number of toys and books but TLW do not accept responsibility for them.  We request they are looked after and left how they are found. The chairs in this area are for sitting on and are not to be stood on.
  5. The desk area in reception is for TLW Dance staff ONLY.  At no point should anyone be behind this area.
  6. Photographs are not allowed to be taken during class by parents, friends or guardians.
  7. Photographs and videos of students may be taken and used for promotion and on social media.
