Updated Covid- Safety Measures (March 2022):
Before attending a physical class, we will ask all customers to ensure they are fit and well. We ask anyone who has tested positive or has Covid symptoms to not attend classes. This standpoint is for the benefit of everyone and to ensure that we keep our customers safe. The use of face masks is optional.
Anyone who is unwell will be asked to leave the class.
If you are unable to attend a class due to illness of any kind we offer 'makeup classes' that you may attend, once you are better.*
We will continue our infection control policies to ensure the safety of all our teachers, assistants, and customers. However, if we do need to close a class due to one of our teachers or assistants contracting Covid, we will give a full refund to all customers or offer a carry-over class when we re-open.
*Subject to availability

tiny toes ballet Refund Policy
Due to the age of the children in the tiny toes classes, it usually takes a child around 3-4 weeks to settle into the class and get used to their new surroundings and their children's ballet class. The 6 week course will therefore give them plenty of time to get used to their teacher/ environment so that you can decide whether the children's ballet class is beneficial for them.
The tiny toes ballet class fees are non-refundable unless authorisation has been given in which case the refund is at our discretion and each circumstance will be taken on its own merits. We would appreciate as much notice as possible if this should happen. There will be an administration fee of £10 should any refunds be made.
In exceptional circumstances it may be necessary for the teacher to cancel a tiny toes ballet class. If this happens, you will be notified with as much notice as possible by phone. A full refund will be given and/or an alternative class offered.
For all bespoke children's ballet merchandise purchases you may return goods within 14 days of delivery for a full refund of the item price. We cannot accept returns of certain items, including any item that is not in its original condition, is damaged, or has missing parts; any item that has been worn; any Item that has wear or scuff marks; any item that is not returned within 14 days of delivery. Personalised tiny toes ballet Items cannot be returned. All returned items must be in the original condition and including all packaging or a refund/ exchange will not be issued. Refunds will be issued between 5-10 days once the item is received back. We suggest you use a recorded postage option when returning the goods as we are not responsible for the return postage or the cost.
