Summer Course Dates
Summer Course 2018: Six weeks of dancing! Monday July 9th till Wednesday August 15th.
If you missed a lesson, you can join the class on another day. This means that students from the Monday class can join the Wednesday/Tuesday lessons, or the other way around. Please send me SMS beforehand! about missing the lesson and your request to join the other group. Students who follow all lessons cannot catch up, because there aren’t any more options left. You can only catch-up within the same block that you are subscribed to and only if there is space available in the group you requested.
During the school year: there is no possibility for refund or catching up the lessons in the next block/course.
During the summer: there is no refund or catch-up possibility for missing lessons. But you can choose to take SINGLE Lessons.
Discounts on Dance performances
Talvandansen students regularly receive discounts in theaters in the area. The discounts are sent by email, so make sure you check your mail frequently!
There is no strict dress code at Talvandansen, since all students are adults amateur or professionals. It is important that you feel comfortable. But choosing the right clothes that fit the style can improve the quality of the class (the teacher can correct you), enhance your understanding of the style and contribute to your safety.
Dance workout – Wear comfortable clothes, preferably not too wide, so that the teacher can correct your posture. A part of the class is danced barefoot and a part on socks. It’s useful to bring a large towel for the exercises on the ground.
You could also bring indoor sneakers for the last part of the class if you have a knee or ankle injury.
Ballet – Wear ballet clothing or comfortable clothes, preferably not too wide, so that the teacher can correct your posture. You can use ballet shoes or (anti-slip) socks.
Modern dance – Wear comfortable clothes, preferably not too wide, so that the teacher can correct your posture. A part of the class is danced barefoot and a part on socks. When working on Floor technique it is useful to wear long sleeves and long pants or legging, so that you can prevent burn marks (friction).
For all classes – for safety reasons please don’t wear any jewelry, please wear your hair back in a bun or ponytail. Please bring a water bottle and a towel with you.
Buying dance clothing and shoes
You can get personal advice and fitting assistance at Paraddy Quality Sport & Dancewer in Rotterdam.
New students can start at any moment, as long as there is space available in the desired group. The full block price should be paid, but of course you can catch-up the missed classes. If there is no possibility to catch up the missed classes, other arrangements can be made.
Determine your level
An indication of the level is written in the class description. The best thing you can do, if you are still doubting, is follow a tryout class. After class you can discuss your options with the teacher and if needed try another level out.
Talvandansen is working with 3 payment/subscription moments, unlike many other dance schools with a yearly subscription. Therefore cancelation of agreement is not necessary/possible. At the end of each block, you can simply choose if you wish to subscribe and pay for the next block.
