  • Can my child start in the middle of a term?
    Subject to a place being available in your preferred class, the staff will advise you on the optimum time to start. This can depend upon a number of factors including the classes current proximity to an exam or a performance however it is often possible to start during a term. In this instance, fees will be charged on a pro-rata basis.
  • Will the children get any performance opportunities?
    We firmly believe in the wonderful experience for children of performing on a stage with their friends and to build their confidence and showcase their skills. We have put on a number of ambitious dance shows at The Theatre Royal over many years and hope to continue to do so. We also have been fortunate to access a number of other performance opportunities on offer over the years including taking groups to perform at Disneyland Paris and a strong involvement with the professional pantomimes in Bath, the Bath Festival and other local opportunities as well as West End Shows.
  • How can I pay the fees?
    Fees are payable on the first day of term. Your invoice will appear on the portal set up for your child. If a student begins in the middle of the term, you will be invoiced for the remaining weeks in that term. Fees can be paid by BACS, card, cheque or cash. BACs is our preferred method of payment but if you wish to pay by cheque please make payable to Dorothy Coleborn School of Dancing.

    In normal circumstances, we will do our very best to accommodate the needs of the individual within the regular classes. However, individual lessons are available and can be arranged as required.
