During Enrollment: Permission must be sought from any pupil wishing to participate in any external vocational classes, amateur or professional productions and festivals and competitions. 

Pupils enrolled at Studio84 are offered all disciplines of performing arts, therefore permission will only be granted to another school if it is to attend a class not offered on our timetable.

Pupils/ parents will be asked to leave without notice for any serious breach of the school’s terms and conditions or for any other serious misconduct.

Teachers:  All S84 teachers are professionally trained fully qualified and have current CRB checks. 

We always have one quailed first aider on sight.

Where a guest or student teacher is asked to take a class, a member of the S84 team will always be present.

A “hands on approach” is often needed for teaching technique, as well as supporting the acrobatic movements. Please let Miss Faye know if you are not happy for your child to be taught in this way.


Competition & Festival Etiquette

Pupils will be asked to join the competition squad or festival team when we deem that child not only to be technically ready, but also emotionally too. 

Once on the squad or team, professionalism and rules must be upheld all times. 

As the faces of Studio84 we expect you to represent the school and its reputation in the highest possible manner.

Private Lessons: Freestyle Comp Squad will need a minimum of one 15-minute private lesson a week.

Festival Dancers: Will be choreographed in 1 or 2, 30 min private lesson depending on the child. 

We recommend another 30 min lesson on each dance as a refresher before the festival.

Routines WILL NOT be made up or practiced in lessons unless your child is attending the necessary competition or festival class.

Uniform: All students to arrive in S84 Uniform. Parents will be required to invest in a S84 T-shirt also.

All students to have their own make up kit, hair spray, bobbles, brush, pins, grips & Safety pins.

Props & Costumes: Any props or costumes issued to you by Studio84 must be returned in the same condition they were given in. Loss or damage to these items will result in you having to pay for them.

Sportsmanship: At Competitions, Studio84 is to be represented as a company. 

Team moral is the most important agenda of the day. 

A success for one child from our school is a success for the school and its reputation as a whole. 

Regardless of your own child’s achievements on the day, I expect all parents and pupils to support each other by being up on his or her feet, clapping and cheering for EVERY pupil from S84.

Pupils/ parents will be asked to leave the competition squad or festival team without notice if they cannot congratulate and support other members of our school.

Trophies/Medals: Trophies are to be collected in S84 tops.

All parents and pupils are to stay until the finals and awards have ben handed out to support and congratulate unless you have asked to leave before the section has commenced. Exceptions will be made to competitions running late into the evening or where a child is feeling unwell or injured.
