The safety and welfare of all our students are extremely important to us. The teachers and directors at Parkes Dance Co have a valid WWCC (Working with children check). All of our staff have been trained in First Aid. We have fully sprung floors and teach safe dance practices.
We want Parkes Dance Co to be a place where children and teenagers can feel free to express themselves and their individuality without fear of judgement. Same for the parents and families of our students. Incident report forms are available at reception, should they ever be needed.
Neat & Tidy
Our beautiful but busy premises are cleaned daily. Please respect our studios and help us to keep it looking nice. Keep your feet off the furniture and hands off the walls and mirrors. Take all rubbish with you or place it in one of the many bins provided. Drink spillages and “accidents” are parents’ responsibility to clean up immediately, please ask at reception for a mop or sponge if required.
Parents and students and students’ siblings are asked to keep all noise too a minimum when in the foyer or waiting in between classes. Our studios are soundproofed, but some noise still leaks through and can distract the classes still in progress.
Parents should not go into the students’ hallway. This space is just for dancers. Please do not congregate around the studio doors or sit on the chairs near the bag shelves.
Parents SHOULD NOT enter the studio unless specifically invited in by the teacher. If you need to give an urgent message to your child, please ask the receptionist at the desk to go and retrieve your child – rather than going into the dance room and interrupting the class.
