Both 1st Term and 2nd Term are guaranteed to receive 14 weeks, including a technical rehearsal and recital in both terms, and photography day in the 2nd Term. We are running 15-19 weeks in Terms 1 & 2 (depending on which day your dancer has classes). Should there be a day of classes we have to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances, classes will not be made up unless we fall beneath our allotted 14 weeks/term.
