All important information and dates will be emailed to you, please keep an eye on your inbox and keep us updated if you change your email address, or any other contact details.

We will also post all relevant information on the Children and Youth Dance notice board (level 2 at The Place, by the Classes and Courses office).

​You can book a class online here, over the phone by calling 020 7121 1080 / 1100 or in person.
To complete your booking you need to complete an online enrolment form. Please note if you do not complete the form your young dancer will not be able to take part.

To complete your enrolment form please follow the link included in your welcome email. If you experience any technical issues with the online enrolment form please email us for a downloadable version or pick up a paper copy from our office.

Your young dancer’s safety is paramount to us and this form allows us to ensure we have any relevant medical information and contact details to best assist your young dancer.

All fees must be settled within five working days of the project commencing. Payments on card can be made over the phone by calling us or the Box Office (020 7121 1100). Alternatively payments can be made in the Classes & Courses office where we accept cash, card and cheques, made payable to The London Contemporary Dance Trust. If you are unable to meet the deadline please ensure you arrange a payment plan with us by phone, email or in our office. All payment plans must be agreed by the first Saturday of the term. 

The Place operates on a no refund policy unless participation is affected by a medical condition or injury upon which a refund will be issued on receipt of a medical certificate or doctor’s note. Extenuating circumstances will be considered and all are subject to a £10 administration charge.

If your child decides that the project is not for them we can issue a credit refund* providing we are notified by the second day of the course and are able to fill their place.

*A credit refund means your Place account will be credited to an agreed sum and can be used for any of our courses or classes or towards theatre tickets. 

Please note: we will withhold the cost of the class that they have attended along with an administration fee of £20. 

If you are unable to afford fees we can discuss methods of payment further. Financial contributions through the Iris Tomlinson Fund can be applied for through a means tested application form. You can download the form at the bottom of this page. The deadline to return this form is five working days prior to the start of your course. 

Through challenging and engaging activities our team of highly skilled teachers encourage dancers to develop their technical expertise, creativity and musicality. Additionally, students will have the opportunity to develop creatively with their peers.

Please wear clothes that are comfortable to move in – not too tight or too baggy. We suggest tracksuit bottoms, leggings or shorts and a t-shirt or leotard and footless tights. No shoes, jeans or jewellery are to be worn and long hair must be tied back.

Male and female changing rooms are available; entrance codes will be available from reception or the registration desk. In the interest of safety, please do not bring any valuables with you or leave anything in the changing rooms. Your belongings can be brought into the studio and left neatly at the edge of the room.

You should bring a bottle of water which you can refill from our water fountains. Please be aware that food and drinks (other than water) are not allowed in our studios.

We appreciate students arriving to and being collected from their classes promptly. For health and safety reasons if a student arrives late for class by 15 minutes or more it is at the teacher’s discretion whether they may participate. However, if asked to sit out students are always invited to observe. 

We cannot accept responsibility for students Year 7 and up once sessions have finished. For children in years 1-6 we sign students out to parents/carers at the end of each session. In the event of an emergency the office should be notified of late collection at the earliest opportunity upon which your child will be brought to the office until collected.

In your enrolment you are able to agree whether images and footage of your young person can be used for promoting the work of The Place.

Filming and photography is not permitted in our studios.

You will be able to buy the summer sharing in September. You can purchase your copy of the summer sharing for £7.00 at the Classes & Courses office (Level 2).

If your young dancer will be late or missing any sessions please email the team in advance.
