VeloKIDS Class Policy
I believe that attending a VeloKIDS dance class allows a young dancer to combine hard work and fun in every session. It is imperative that both parents and children attending the class clearly understand what is expected from them and adhere to a few simple rules to ensure the safety and wellbeing for all those attending our classes at all times.
Behaviour At VeloKIDS we aim to create a relaxed learning space where every individual feels safe and comfortable to express themselves artistically, take risks and try new things without being judged by their peers. All students and parents are expected to have mutual respect for each other and their teachers.
Inappropriate behaviour will not be tolerated.
Mobile Phones Mobile telephones may be brought into StudioVelo but will not be permitted within the studio itself during class and must be left in the cloakroom on silent along with bags, coats and shoes. The reception area is locked throughout the class to ensure the safety of people's belongings however, Black's Barre and Studio Velo cannot accept any responsibility for lost or damaged valuable items we would like you to be fully aware that if valuable items are brought to Studio Velo by your child they are brought into the space at the owners own risk. The use of mobile phones is strictly for emergencies, on occasion the students may be given permission to film a piece of choreography or exercise in order to practice from home however, this will only be granted at the discretion of the teacher
If any contact home is required during a VeloKIDS class this will be done by the appropriate teacher.
What to Wear We do not have a uniform as such at VeloKIDS but children must be dressed appropriately ready to dance.
*Note to parents/guardians - As the main teacher at VeloKIDS I have an up to date DBS (disclosure and barring service) and qualified in First Aid. I have a child protection, data protection and a health and safety policy all of which will be sent to you digitally if you decide to enrol your child on to the six week course of VeloKIDS at Studio Velo.
