What Can I Expect From LBA?

There truly is no place like LBA!

We welcome every student through our door with open arms and nurture their progression every hop, skip and leap of the way!

It's always a bit scary joining a new dance school, but LBA does everything to ensure your child is comfortable, settled and happy from their very first class. 

Your First class

We ask that you arrive slightly early to your first class with us so we can introduce your child to all of their new friends in the class, and their new teacher, and ensure that they are comfortable with the studio and their environment. 

If your child is joining our Petit, Midi or Grande groups we ask that our parents/guardians leave their child to enjoy the class and pick them up at the end as it's always a bit daunting having an audience. Your child's confidence will flourish during the class and they will be introduced to the wonderful world of dance and theatre which will have them grinning from ear to ear when you arrive!We will then have a quick chat with you subsequent to the class and answer any questions you may have. We will then be in contact again the following day once you've both absorbed all the excitement.

Joining the LBA Family

 

After your first class with us, and once you've decided that LBA is the school for you, we have a comprehensive chat with you to discover the hopes and dreams you have for your child's progression with us, what dreams they would like to achieve, and how we can help them achieve these dreams.

 

We encourage all of our students to join a variety of dance and performance styles with us to diversify their training and build their confidence even further. 

What Times Are Your Classes?

As we are regularly adding new classes, and altering the timetable to best accommodate all of our students, please get in touch for our timetable for this term - christie@labellearts.co.uk

How Much Are Your Classes?

Dance classes are an investment in a child’s artistry, self confidence and self expression. We value the commitment families make to their children’s dance education, and endeavour to see this investment fulfilled.

Our fees are charged by the term and are dependant on the age of the student and the number of classes enrolled in. Our fees are structured on a sliding scale, meaning the more you do the cheaper your classes become!

We also offer discounts for multiple students from the one family AND for recommending us!

Please don’t hesitate to contact us to find out more about your own tailored fee schedule.

What About Uniform?

We have our very own La Belle Arts uniform which we encourage all our students to have so they can feel even more a part of our special LBA family!

You can purchase our gorgeous personalised uniform on our Shop page HERE

 

Each piece of uniform has the beautiful La Belle Arts logo on it complete with sparkles (if wished) and the student's name printed on it for that extra pizzaz!

 

Our class uniform requirements are below - for any further information, don't hesitate to get in touch:

How Do I Enrol?

We can't wait to welcome you to La Belle Arts!

 

NEW STUDENTS

 

New students can enrol for a free trial class via https://la-belle-arts.class4kids.co.uk/. After the child’s first class you’ll receive a link to book for the rest of the term.

 

Sibling discounts will be applied automatically, and multi-class discount codes will be sent via email.

 

Payment can be made via the booking page, to the LBA bank account or by cash/cheque at the child’s first class. You'll then receive access to our Parent/Student Portal which you can read more about it below!

CURRENT STUDENTS

We've made it super easy to register yourself or your child for the new term at LBA!

You can book your child's place in class here:

https://la-belle-arts.class4kids.co.uk/

Payment can be made through out booking page or by bank transfer, Paypal or cash/cheque at your first class of the term. 

Unfortunately we can't guarantee your child's place in class until payment has been received. 

You will receive discount codes for multi class bookings in your NEW TERM email which is sent out at the end of the previous term. 

We recommend booking your child's new term ASAP to avoid disappointment, as many of our classes are on waiting lists.
