  • Dragonflies Dance at North Curry is not responsible for children outside the class times - no children should be left unattended in the waiting area

  • Unless invited to come in to watch for specially arranged days - 'watching day', parents cannot watch class and are asked to wait in the lobby or designated waiting area.

  • Changing for Classes: There is a dedicated girls changing room (social room) at North Curry Village Hall and Hatch Beauchamp Village Hall (both with large male toilets and foyer area for male students and large toilet facilities at Fivehead Village Hall and we ask that children DO NOT undress or change in public areas. To keep the Foyer free from bags and clothes we would also appreciate bags being left in the changing room during classes to enable full use of the Foyer as a seating area for parents waiting for children during classes. Pupils are asked to only use this room to change and leave their belongings during class and not as a meeting and social area.

  • Attending dance classes at similar local dance school is not permitted for Dragonflies students to ensure exam records are kept in order and to ensure secure training. There are exceptions - regional workshops, training provided by national ballet companies and musical theatre classes for example - please discuss with the principal if unsure. 

  • Please inform the principal if you will be leaving your child unsupervised in the changing room and please see our unsupervised children policy for further information - Dragonflies are responsible for children only when they are in their dance lesson.
