Membership, Class Fees and Terms

Children's dance classes are paid for in termly blocks, in advance. A termly membership fee is charged for each child attending Emma Louise Dance Club. We offer a very competitive pricing system for our classes, including multiple class and sibling discounts. We do our best to keep our prices affordable, in fact, our class fees have remained the same since 2012!

International Dance Rewards Programme - All ELDC members have the opportunity to work towards International Dance Reward certificates and badges. This inovative scheme rewards each and every achievement along a child’s journey in dance without the need to sit a dance exam. Children are assessed by the dance teacher in class and rewarded with a certificate and badge once they have completed each level. IDR badges and certificates are presented to children in the end of term performance and presentation lesson. We feel the scheme is an exciting way to reward every dancer for dedication, performance and passion!
