For new students it is the chance to have a look around the studio, meet some of our teachers and to watch our show DVD from last year. If you cannot attend enrolment day please check our new timetable on the website as some classes have changed time or teacher this year. If you are unsure please feel free to ask!
Please follow our Facebook & Instagram pages (and if you are able to write a review we would really appreciate it).
