The Southborough School of Dance reserves the right to deliver lessons remotely on Zoom in the eventuality a Covid pandemic outbreak takes place or, for reasons beyond our control, the Studio venue is required to close temporarily.

Fees are due at the beginning of each term and need to be settled by the end of the second week at the latest. If requested, term fees can be divided into two instalments: the first to be paid at the beginning of the term and the second at half-term. Parents can choose to pay through bank transfer, cash or cheque.

Cancellations: a half term’s notice must be given should you decide to withdraw your child from the school, or half-term fee in lieu will be charged.

A festival fee is usually charged by the festival organisers for each entry and varies depending on the festival. The school charges an additional rehearsal fee to prepare pupils for festivals and the school charity show with ad-hoc choreography and private tuitions.
