If a student is required to take medication whilst participating in dance activities, parents/carers should take full responsibility and ensure teaching staff are properly informed.
To make sure students attend class with the uniform specified and not a variation. All uniform can be purchased via our online shop.

Please ensure that all students are collected on time at the end of their class by a parent or carer. Please notify the teacher at the start of the class if someone else will be collecting your child. If you are going to be late the student will remain in the studio with the teacher until you arrive. If the student has permission to leave the studio on their own the parent needs to give explicit permission through the online registration form.
Please ensure our staff are aware of any medical conditions or learning difficulties that may need special support.
Students will be entered for examinations when the teacher deems the student is ready.
We are very proud of our students and we expect them to be proud of the uniform they wear.
The uniform and general good grooming is an integral part of Dance Studio London Group Ltd. discipline and forms an essential part of preparation and focus for class. As such, class uniform is mandatory after a student’s first half-term of attendance.
For graded examination classes the regulation uniform for each examination board (I.S.T.D, I.D.T.A and R.A.D) is mandatory for classes as well as the examination.
As students progress from juniors to seniors the uniform will mature and change with them. We hope this will instil a sense of pride in moving up to the next class, creating a tangible, visible difference. It also keeps the uniform clean and neat.
We ask that DSL uniform is bought through our suppliers in order to ensure consistency from one students uniform to the next as any uniform for graded examinations that is not identical to the uniform we specify can not be accepted for examinations.
Dance Studio London has a zero tolerance policy in regards to verbal abuse or unreasonable behaviour from students, parents or customers. If staff or the company encounters such behaviour the company reserves the right to refuse to continue to engage with the customers, parent or students without notice or a refund.
Please note - Due to the nature of teaching performing arts it is sometimes necessary to correct positions physically. This is always conducted with the utmost care and professionalism. If you have any concerns or questions please speak to your teacher or contact head office: email@example.com
