Uniform is an important part of class promoting pride, confidence and a feeling of belonging as well as creating the right mindset for class. You can find the information on the dance tab under your chosen genre. This will tell you exactly what to wear for that class and the link to purchase it from.
If your child is participating in private lessons you can make pre-arrangements with your child’s instructor to sit in on their lesson. Group classes have parent viewing week each year so that families can see what they are learning in class. Please note for pre-school parents, our goal is to foster independence and confidence, preparing students for other independent activities so we encourage you not to watch class until watching week.
Thank you for your understanding in advance.
All students ages 5+ in a NATD Street dance class will be invited to participate in an examination with their class. This is a great opportunity for each student to receive feedback from a professional examiner. All exam material is taught in class and each student will be well prepared for this experience. Upon completion of the examination, each student will receive an individual adjudication sheet as well as a certificate of completion or a medal depending on the grade being studied. This is such a worthwhile experience and we are so pleased to be able to offer this at NCD. There are examination costs which are charged by the NATD for the examiner. This cost will depend on the grade being taken and length of the exam. These will be charged once you have registered your child for an exam. Exams are not compulsory and your child can still learn the syllabus with the class without taking the exam.
Yes you can withdraw your child from classes. All withdrawals must be done in writing with four weeks notice by sending an email to email@example.com requesting the withdrawal link. Your withdrawal will not be official until we receive this form back. We have two withdrawal dates per season. October 15th and February 1st
If you decide to withdraw from NCD once show rehearsals have started, any show fees paid will be non refundable.
No refunds will be given for dance classes missed. NCD reserves the right to terminate lessons to any student without notice. In such a case a refund for unused lessons will be given.
Yes. Our Elite and Performance crews perform at various events , competitions and showcases throughout the year. The whole school has the opportunity to perform at our annual showcase. Our annual show is the perfect event for you or your child to show family and friends the results of months of learning and practice. Our shows are all inclusive and designed to help performers build confidence, self-esteem, and performance skills as well as showcasing everything we do at NCD. The annual show helps students stay motivated, encouraged and interested in seeing their progress.
The annual performance is not compulsory. Students can opt out of participating but can still join in the class and learn all of their class pieces. If your child does participate in the show then decides not to perform once rehearsals have started and costumes have been bought, any fees paid will be non refundable.
Yes. As your child grows with us there are opportunities for them to join our Elite Crews. Our Elite crews are by invite only. Once your child is invited we expect them to attend 3 or more classes a week so they can perform on a regular basis as well as compete.
