AFFILIATIONS AND PARTNERSHIPS
HANDLE WITH CARE POLICY
If your child is enrolled in our classes, we want to ensure they can use the class as an escapism and feel loved and cared for. If your child is ever facing difficulties... today, this week, this month, please let us know by sending a text or a note with your child saying "Handle with care."
We understand that you may not be able to share details and that's okay! Nothing else will be said or asked.
This will help our team to know that your child may need extra time, patience or help during the class.
We take pride in providing a safe environment for all of our students, and this is just one of the ways we aim to ensure that. Our team is dedicated to creating a supportive and caring atmosphere where children can express themselves through dance and theatre, and we are committed to making sure that every child feels valued and cherished in our classes.
WHAT PARENTS SAY
DANCE CIRQUE PARENT
*** is loving the dance cirque classes. For a little girl that struggles with anxiety and separation it's amazing watching her run into dclass and shout goodbye! You must've made her fee; so welcome and for that I am so grateful. Little touches like this message and the email check ins really show me that she is in the right place!
MT & GYM DANCE PARENT
*** joined CCA’ Musical Theatre class as a happy, but incredibly shy child, who struggled in social settings, in particular with people unfamiliar to her. She has flourished in this class, under Chloe’s care. A warm and nurturing environment that allows the students the freedom to express themselves and try new things, at their own pace. Achievements are celebrated as a group and the focus on wellbeing and kindness means Clemmie’s confidence both in and out of class has grown immeasurably. I cannot recommend CCA highly enough.
MUSICAL THEATRE PARENT
My son has only been attending Musical Theatre classes since September but he absolutely loves it. The teachers work tirelessly to give their students the best learning experience and they are incredibly supportive, you can tell they love their job too! Highly recommend!!
