When can I sign up???

You can sign up online at any time. We don't allow students to join in the middle of a term so we have 3 optimum starting dates. 

  • Day 1 of term 1 (Sept) 
  • Day 1 of Term 2 (Nov) 
  • Day 1 of the new calendar year (Jan)


Sign up and secure your child's place in October. The next available starting date will be  Day 1 of Term 2 in November.

Can I try a class for free before I sign up?

Yes you can do a free trial class on day 1 to make sure the student likes it before you need to commit.

Do I need to pay in full or do you have payment plans?

You can pay in the best way that suits you. If paying in full, this must be done on day 1 of term. If you wish to sign up to the payment plan you must do so online.

We have 2 plans available. Those who get paid weekly and those who get paid monthly.

If I pay my deposit am I guaranteed a place?

Yes you are. The only way to secure a place is by paying a deposit. If the class is full, you will be offered a space on the waiting list and when a space becomes available only then will you be asked to pay a deposit.

My Child is Shy, Can I stay for the class until they settle?

We operate a parent free zone. We find this works best in this industry, if you have a shy child we recommend that you arrive to class early with your child so they are familiar with their surroundings first. Tell them that you will be outside if they need you.

Our team are great with dealing with shy children and we do our best to make them feel as comfortable as possible. We thrive on the satisfaction of seeing the transformation from week 1 to 10.

Do I need to wear a uniform?

Yes we have uniforms, T Shirt is the minimum requirement and can be ordered online or at class and costs €10
