Dance-Worx’s prides itself on maintaining excellent relationships with children and parents and ALL Dance-Worx’s staff are trained professionals and fully DBS checked.
While in the class every effort will be made to ensure the safety of all class members. It is the parent’s or guardian’s responsibility to ensure their safety before and after the class, where applicable.
Dance & Gymnastics require a high level of safety to be involved. In order to meet our safety guidelines, a certain level of verbal discipline should be used with children, to minimize injuries and accidents to the best of the teacher’s ability.
Supporting and shaping the dancer/gymnast is an essential part of teaching dance/gymnastics, in that it helps the dancer/gymnast understand shapes, movement patterns and complex skills, but also reduces the risk of injury due to a fall or error in technique. Therefore some physical contact will need to be used with children, to enable good practice. Physical contact will be appropriate in accordance with British Gymnastics supporting techniques and United Kingdom Alliance Professional/Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance/Dance Teachers Association guidelines.
Any parent/guardian with a child who has a medical condition, impairment or disability must make sure they inform Dance-Worx’s Ltd before the class in order to inform the teacher who will be running the class. Any parent/guardian with a child who has a medical condition must make sure they write the necessary details on the registration form. It is the parent/guardian s responsibility to ensure that they update Dance-Worx’s Ltd in writing of any change in medical conditions or contact details.
Any child that requires medication to be taken in the class must have it clearly marked with the child’s name. It should be handed to the teacher at the beginning of the lesson for safekeeping and collected again at the end.
At present children should wear the school PE Kit/leggings/shorts and DWX T-Shirt or a leotard for the class to allow freedom of movement. All long hair must be tied back securely with an elastic hair band. Jewellery and adornments of any description should not be worn to the gym class. Dancers & gymnasts must be aware of the risks associated with wearing spectacles, and must be encouraged to use secure straps or wear contact lenses. Children must be barefoot or wear gymnastics shoes during gymnastics training unless there are any medical reasons, which should be discussed with the coach in charge of the child s class before participating.
Dancing & Gymnastics can be strenuous activities and Dance-Worx’s Ltd take all precautions to ensure the safety of everyone involved. As a parent I understand that with any activity there is a potential risk and I will not hold Dance-Worx’s Ltd liable for any injury my child may sustain from participating in the dance/gymnastics class.
Dance-Worx’s provides a secure environment for children to have fun and develop talents, therefore Dance-Worx’s reserves the right to contact any parent/carer of a child who causes disruption* and require their child to be collected immediately. Dance-Worx’s reserves the right to intervene in a situation that could cause harm to any participant in the dance class.
(*Causing injury to themselves/others in the class, damaging premises or property, causing a breach of the peace or interfering with the discipline of the class)
