In keeping with School policy :


  • Killester School of Ballet and Modern Dance offers two terms per year, each term not less than 14 weeks duration. This may be revised only due to unforeseen circumstances.

  • Fees are due at the beginning of each term, unless an alternative agreement has been made with the directors.

  • There is a cap of €550 fees per family per term regardless of the number of classes taken.

  • The required dress code including grooming should be adhered to. From Pre-Primary upward the regulation uniform must be worn. Jewellery should not be worn for health and safety reasons. Up to and including grade 2 hair must be in tidy ponytails. From grade 3 upward a bun is compulsory.

  • While on the premises of St. Brigid’s Parish Resource Centre, students must behave appropriately and younger children must be supervised and behave with respect to other activities taking place in the centre.

  • Parents must inform the Directors if their child has any special needs, allergies, relevant medical information.

  • Guidance in the dance class may involve a “hands on” approach. This will be done in a professional and appropriate manner and only when verbal communication is ineffective in achieving the desired result.
