Everything you need to know about trial classes at Piri Ballet


TRY AND DECIDE AFTERWARDS


Your first class with us, always counts as your trial class. You can decide afterwards if you would like to join us or not.



WHEN TO TRY / JOIN


It's best to start asap so your child can progress with the rest of the class and start preparing for the end of year show, but don't worry if you missed the first weeks. Our teachers are patient and positive and will support any late starters.


If you decide to join us after the trial class, will deduct any missed classes (before your trial class) from first invoice.


We cannot guarantee show participation with later sign ups (after January). It will depend on the class and the student. Our teacher would gladly advise you on these matters (level & show participation) after the trial class. Having said that, as long as there are spots available, you are welcome to join us anytime during the school year.



CHOSING THE LEVEL


See which class to book according to our age table below. The ages below are guidelines and work for most students. We will tell you after the trial class if the teacher thinks that your child would make better progress in another level (lower or higher level).


Piri Ballet Age Level Guidelines at different locations
L1 = Level 1

CHOOSING A TEACHER


All of our teachers are professional, positive, kind, patient and love working with children. They are trained in the Piri Ballet method, so no matter which class or teacher you chose, you will receive the same high standard that we set for each class. Our classes are fun, positive and challenging.


If several classes work for you, you are welcome to attend several trial classes with different teachers. Just let us know afterwards which one you chose so we can open the other class for other students.



WHERE / HOW TO BOOK


Go to the "Trial Class" tab on our website and fill out the "trial class sign up form"



For your trial class, book the class which you would like to attend weekly if you decide to join us after the trial class.



AVAILABLE CLASSES


Please see our schedule below to find out which classes still have openings.


COST OF TRIAL CLASS


There is no additional trial class fee. The normal trimester fees will apply if you join. All missed classes before your trial class will be deducted from your first bill. If after the trial class you do not join us, you do not pay for anything.



WHAT TO WEAR


CLOTHES & HAIR:

For the trial class you do not need to purchase anything. Students hair can be in a neat ponytail and wear leggings and a t-shirt and socks. If you already own a leotard and ballet shoes, please come in those. If you decide to sign up after the trial class, we will put together the welcome package which is part of the sign up fee (please see below the link to our general and financial terms for more info) which includes everything you need so your child will have it for the 2nd class. 😊




ARRIVAL TIME


Normally minimum 5 and maximum 15 minutes before class starts. Make sure to give yourself enough time for parking and finding the location. Your child will feel more comfortable if they do not arrive rushed and/or late.


TRYING WITH SHY CHILD


Prepare your child before hand so they know what to expect


1) Show them this video so they can see what a class looks like


2) Explain to them that you will be bringing them to the studio and show them the space and just before class starts, you will be going outside and you will be waiting for them there. Explain that only students are allowed in the classroom and if they need anything (water, go to the toilet etc) they can ask the teacher.


3) On the day, make sure to arrive 10 minutes early. Get ready for class, take off your shoes and check with the teacher if you can enter the classroom with your child for a few minutes (only if there is no other class in the room). Walk around the classroom with your child for a bit until they feel more comfortable.



WATCHING THE CLASS


You are welcome to watch the class anytime. There is a glass window (one way so students don't get distracted) in the changing room area.


AFTER THE TRIAL CLASS


A) SIGNING UP

If you decide to join us, you can start attending class weekly straight away. No need to get a confirmation from us. We will sort out the "technicalities" afterwards. Having said that, send us a text, or email to confirm your annual booking and we will get back to you as soon as we can. If anything changes later on, you can still discontinue your classes at the end of a trimester if you let us know by the cancellation dates given in our General & Financial Conditions.



B) NOT JOINING or NOT SURE YET

Please email or whatsapp us if you decide not to join us so we can offer the spot to another student.




Piri Ballet propose des cours de ballet et de danse cardio pour débutants et intermédiaires. Les élèves les plus jeunes ont deux ans et les plus âgés ont plus de soixante ans. Nous avons des cours pour les bébés, les tout-petits, les jeunes enfants, les adolescents, les adultes et les personnes âgées. Il n'est jamais trop tard ni trop tôt pour commencer à danser. Les cours pour bébés se font dans des porte-bébés avec leur maman et se font sur de la musique populaire. Les cours pour les 2-3 ans contiennent 30 minutes de jeu de danse et 30 minutes de jeu et de dessin, etc. La taille des classes pour les enfants de deux à trois ans sera petite avec environ 5 enfants par enseignant. Les 4-6 ans ont 30 minutes de ballet et 30 minutes de danse-jeu. Les 7-9 ans auront 50 minutes de ballet et 10 minutes de danse-jeu. Les 10 ans et plus auront 60 minutes de ballet.

Les cours de ballet comprendront un échauffement, un travail à la barre, des étirements, des exercices au centre comme des sauts et des virages (selon l'âge et le niveau) et un retour au calme.

Au Piri Ballet, la santé et la sécurité de nos élèves sont très importantes. Pour cette raison, nous organisons des échauffements et des récupérations pour chaque cours. Nous enseignons également à nos étudiants à faire les exercices de manière à éviter les blessures. Nos professeurs ont suivi des milliers de cours de ballet et savent exactement à quoi faire attention.

Nous pensons que la danse doit être amusante et agréable tout en améliorant les compétences, la force musculaire, la posture et la flexibilité.

Chaque étudiant est important pour nous et nous essayons d'adapter nos cours pour en faire une expérience positive pour tous nos étudiants.

Nous sommes intéressés et apprécions tous les commentaires des élèves et des parents.

Nos cours les plus populaires sont nos cours de ballet pour les 2-3 ans et nos cours pour débutants adultes.

Notre studio est à Nyon tout près de la gare (à 2 minutes à pied). Nos étudiants viennent de différentes régions vaudoises et genevoises.

Nous espérons ouvrir de nouveaux centres de danse à Lausanne et Genève dans un avenir proche, donc si Nyon est trop loin pour vous, veuillez vous inscrire à notre liste de diffusion et faites-nous savoir si vous seriez intéressé à participer à notre futur Genève ou Lausanne Dance Center.

Pour toute question ou préoccupation, veuillez nous contacter.
