Parents are no longer allowed to watch classes. I found it to be too disruptive and for some children it was uncomfortable. On the last day of each term all parents are invited to watch. If Grandparents or Aunts, Uncles are visiting then they may come in and watch at any time as they may not be available on the last week of term.
I am happy for new students' parents to watch their first lesson, and in the pre school classes, until the children are happy to come in on their own.
Children are entered for Ballet examinations at the discretion of the teacher from the age of five.
