Enrolling your child – Please enrol your child before attending, this ensures that we have all your contact details in an emergency and enables us to send you relevant information via email.  

Trial Period

Please register for the first three trial classes here.

Shortly after enrolling, you will receive an invoice for the first three trial classes only. We encourage all new starters to attend all their trial classes to enable them to become more settled and get a better feel for the class before deciding whether they’d like to continue. Please note that you can start your trial classes whenever it suits you and they do not have to be consecutive.

What to Wear for Trial Period

For the first three trial lessons we recommend that students wear any clothes that they feel comfortable in that allow free movement.  They will need some hard-soled supportive outdoor shoes for tap but may have either bare feet or wear plimsolls for all other classes.

Continuing After Trial Period

After the trial period, we will assume that you’d like to commit to the remainder of the term unless you email us at LyndenDance@aol.com to cancel. Children are then automatically registered for the class for consecutive terms and payment for the full term will be due regardless of whether every class is attended.

We request that you give at least one month’s notice before the start of the following term, should you wish to cancel.

After the 3-week trial period we ask that students wear our regulation uniform and shoes.  Hair must be worn in a neat and secure bun for all dance classes.



The welfare and safety of the children at Lynden is paramount to us. We follow strict safeguarding procedures to ensure the wellbeing of every child is at the highest level.

Whilst all physical activities carry the risk of injury, at Lynden we do everything we can to ensure that we always follow safe practices.

All Lynden staff are DBS checked and trained in Safeguarding and First Aid.


All invoices and almost all our correspondence is via email.  We also display important notices and information on our notice boards.

 Our web site www.lyndendance.co.uk is regularly updated and packed full of information and we have very active Facebook and Instagram pages which are updated on an almost daily basis.

Facebook is also our fastest way to get urgent information to parents concerning any class cancellations due to sickness or poor weather etc.
