The aim of Siegeris Dance is to ensure that all students experience dance in a fun, friendly, positive and safe environment. In order to achieve this, please take note of the following guidelines.

Rules and Regulations
SD staff will not tolerate any aggressive or abusive behaviour from our customers. All customer incidents will be reported and investigated accordingly. Any customer with three of more incidents reported within any given term may result in being asked to leave the school.
It is vital that students arrive in good time. If students are late for class they may miss important information and impede the learning of others.
Regular attendance is extremely important. If students do not attend on a regular basis then the development of the class and the individual student will be affected. Exam students’ attendance will be monitored as they prepare for their examinations and assessments and students who fail to attend classes and additional lessons may be withdrawn.
Pupils are expected to behave in an orderly, civilised and well-mannered way and to show respect to their teachers when attending the Dance School. Failure to comply with the rules and regulations may be result in withdrawal from the Dance School.
It is extremely important that students come to classes dressed in full Dance School uniform in order to be able to work correctly and safely in class and present a neat and elegant appearance. We ask that all students make a concerted effort to come to class wearing a bun or headband for shorter hair.
Students should only get changed in the designated changing areas.
Students should make sure that they keep their valuable personal items with them at all times. Siegeris Dance regrets that we cannot be held responsible if items go missing.
Remuneration and Fees
As per the Dance School Terms and Conditions; fees must be paid before the student’s first class of each term. Failure to do so may result in withdrawal from Dance School classes.
