We ask all participants to attend in comfortable clothing. (joggers/leggings/tshirt)

Dancers & Kickboxers will need bare feet or grip socks.

Cheerleaders - clean trainers with grips on the bottom


 Jewellery must be removed before sessions (stud earrings are ok).


After 4 / 5 weeks of attending we ask you purchase the uniform for whichever specific class they attend.

Do you offer sibling discounts?

We don't currently offer sibling discounts for the regular classes as we offer very good competitive value for money sessions.


Discounts are available at set times of the year for events such as the two-day half term workshops. If you purchase more than one KickBoxing license at the same time you will also receive a discount. 

What are your term dates?

Our classes run throughout the year including most of the school holidays. We close for the last two weeks of August and two weeks at Christmas.

How early do I need to arrive for the Showcase?
A few weeks before the showcase a Parent Pack will be sent out stating the arrival times for the specific Performance Groups. It often goes in order of age, with the older participants arriving first and the younger children shortly before the show begins.

Tickets for the Showcase go on sale 4-8weeks prior to the performance and depending on what kind of venue it is. There is no limit on how many tickets you can purchase but they are First Come First Served and No tickets will be "reserved".  
What do my children wear in the Showcase?
Costume letters will be sent out anywhere between 4-8 weeks prior to the performance. We do try to keep Costume costs down to a minimum and often promote sharing, swapping and helping others out by re-using costumes older dancers have grown out of. 
Are the showcases filmed and can I purchase the DVD?

The Summer showcase is always filmed and DVD's are available to purchase from our online shop.

Collection is from the studio.

The license fee is £15 and is renewed annually. It lasts 12 months from the date you joined (e.g June to June) Both of these must be paid together. There are discounts available for siblings / family members. Please see your Coach for details.

How does my child grade in KickBoxing?

We've now moved over onto a Progressive Grading System which means the children are graded as they learn in class. This is a highly affective way of grading and ensures we constantly achieve the best from the children in every class. Once they are near the next belt the grading fee (£20) all be requested from the parent. 

What do they wear? 

Initially a pair of leggings / t-shirt will be fine, we do ask that you purchase the TDS Gym Uniform after 4 weeks. As the gymnast progresses leotards are a necessity.
