Fees and Cancellations

I agree to pay all fees by monthly subscription and understand that payment will be taken on the same date of purchase every month. Fees are based on a 37 week school year and have been divided into twelve equal payments from September to August. I understand that my child’s place at DDA cannot be guaranteed unless fees have been paid in full and DDA reserves the right to withdraw the place of the nominated child until payment has been received. Refunds will not be given for classes missed by the student. If in the event a DDA teacher is unable to take a scheduled class, the class will be rearranged where possible. If this is not possible, any pre-paid fees for that class will be refunded in full. Classes which fall on bank holidays will not be refunded and will be rescheduled where possible.

I understand that DDA will not be held responsible for classes cancelled due to extreme circumstances and in this case, classes will be rearranged where possible.

I understand that my child’s place at DDA is auto renewed and in order to cancel my child’s place I must give 4 weeks written notice to sofia@debutdance.co.uk in order to cancel any further payments, otherwise one further months payment will be taken.

Photography & safeguarding

DDA may wish to take photographs and videos of students for promotional purposes. Please alert the principal if you would not like your child to be included in this.

Dancing is a physical skill and in order to facilitate the students’ learning, the teacher may use physical touch to guide a movement. This will always be in a professional manner and the intention of the contact will be made clear. 

Please refer to our safeguarding policy for full terms. 


Data Collection

The Principal should be notified of any change in contact details. 

DDA may wish to use data to notify parents/guardians of upcoming events, changes in terms or important information. If you would not like to be contacted by phone or email please notify the principal. 


Lost Property

DDA will not be held responsible for any items lost or stolen. Any items found will be kept in a lost property box with the principal. If these items are not claimed after a reasonable length of time, these items will be disposed of.

House Rules 

Students must be dropped off and picked up from directly outside the studio door, students will not be dismissed unless passed directly to a parent/guardian. Please inform the principal as to who is collecting your child.

Please ensure your child is wearing appropriate foot-ware/clothing for the specific class. i.e. ballet shoes , tap shoes etc.

DDA is a snack-free school so please ensure students come to class with a drink only. In special circumstances regarding this, please contact the principal.

Shows are not compulsory but are advised.

In critical rehearsals leading up to shows and performances, all students taking part must attend. These critical rehearsals will be for 4 weeks before every show. Failure to attend these rehearsals may result in your child not participating fully in the show.
