Filming and photography in class is only allowed when permission is granted by the teacher/choreographer. Due to strict Privacy and Copyright laws, recorded footage MUST NOT be shared in public or on any social media without the consent of the studio, teacher/choreographer and subjects.

We understand that one of the best ways to practice routines is to record and watch/rehearse the steps repeatedly. Because of this, we do allow students to occasionally record routines intended for rehearsal purposes only. Please do not film through doors or windows and make sure permission has been granted before recording.

Any abuse of this agreement will result in the student/parent being asked to delete all footage and possibly leave the premises.

Mobile Phones

Students may bring their mobile phones into the studio for safe keeping, but they must not be audible or switched on. If there is an emergency or an urgent need to have the phone on then this must be discussed with the class teacher and kept with the teacher. Exchanging messages, recording, filming or texting at anytime is not permitted within the class room.
