Bookings and Trials
To book a place in any of the classes for your child please just email firstname.lastname@example.org or use the contact form on this website. When booking, we will need your child's full name, class at Belleville or age (if a senior student), a contact telephone number and if there are any medical issues we should know about about. Fees are payable for a full term when signing up, but if your child decides not to participate after the trial, then no payment is due.

After School Classes - How does the change over work?
At Webbs Road Site - The Catch teacher will meet the students outside in The Hut (pictured) on the upper playground. Younger students will be collected from the class lines. On Tuesdays, the students will need to meet in the picnic area, next to the hut. Here they will be able to have their snack (provided from home) and will then make their way to the classroom. Students are to be collected from the picnic area after class from 4.45pm or on Tuesdays after 4.35pm.
At Meteor Road Site - The Catch teacher will collect the students from their classrooms or playground straight after school. Older students can meet the teacher in the classroom/hall. The students will have time for a snack (provided from home) before class. Students will need to be collected from the reception area at the entrance to the school on Mondays and Thursdays at 4.45pm and on Tuesdays at 3.35pm.

This year we will have small in class presentations and some community performances. If you know of any opportunities for the children to perform within the local community, please let us know!
Drama and Musical Theatre
We hold examinations with London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts (LAMDA) for all age groups once every 2 years in the summer months. We offer solo and group exams from introductory to advanced grades. Students are prepared very well for these exams and they are always an enjoyable experience for them. They are really beneficial and we recommend them for most students, although they are not compulsory and will not effect class involvement. Our next exam sessions will be held in summer 2020. If you would like your child to enter a solo exam before this, then please contact us and we can arrange this. You can read more about LAMDA and their organisation here - LAMDA
We have just started offering ballet exams with the British Ballet Organization (bbodance) for students taking ballet class. We plan to offer our first exam session once the children are ready. This will only be for students who are ready to take part. For those who are not ready or can not take part, it will have no effect on their class enjoyment. You can find out more about bbodance here - bbodance
We offer exams with the National Association of Teachers of dancing (NATD) for contemporary dance. We plan to offer our next exam session when we feel the students are ready. For those who are not ready or can not take part, it will have no effect on their class enjoyment. You can find out more about NATD here - NATD
