Student Support

The Academy has a dedicated Student Support team, all of whom have had DBS checks, safeguarding training and hold Professional Chaperone licenses.

We aim to offer all students the best possible support and advice and ensure students have a safe and friendly environment in which to pursue their passion for dance.

A member of the team will always come to greet students and parents before class and accompany students to the studio. They will be available throughout class in case of illness or injury and will escort students back to the foyer once class has finished. Our Student Support team are friendly and approachable and are always more than happy to speak to parents about anything to do with their child's training.

For further information or to request a copy of our Child Protection Policy, Anti Bullying Policy or Healthy Eating Policy please contact Emma Rodriguez-Saona, Open Programme Manager & Student Support Coordinator.

Child Protection Officers Annemarie Donoghue and Emma Rodriguez-Saona are also available to speak to parents about any concerns they may have. Concerns are dealt with in confidence.
