How to Join Graham School of Dance

Graham School of Dance of Bishops Stortford, Hertfordhshire

We are delighted to welcome new pupils to Graham School of Dance and Theatre Arts in Bishop's Stortford or at one of our branches in Herts / Essex, in Hertford, Church Langley, Stansted, Sawbridgeworth or Takeley . We  will be pleased to answer any questions you may have and advise of the best classes for you/your child, and can email (or post) you a Prospectus Pack, which will have details about the dance school and our classes:

  • e mail us on or
  • ring us on 01279 654423 - the Office is open during term time.

Please provide your telephone number, e mail and postal address, age and school year (if appropriate) of your child – we will then send you a prospectus, with details of possible classes, costs, Enrolment Form, Terms & Conditions etc. Please then contact us to confirm which class(es) you would like your child to join, check any queries and if there is space in the class(es), then come along to the first lesson as a free trial. Please complete and hand in your enrolment form to the class teacher or Office, as it is vital we have your contact details from the very first lesson.

Paying for lessons:

On receipt of the Enrolment Form, the School Secretary (Dawn Crossley) will e mail you an invoice for the lessons remaining for the term (unless your child is taking more than one class, in which case, payment will be monthly - see below). 

Join Graham School of Dance in Bishop's StortfordOnline payment for lessons is ideal, and BACS payments are welcomed – please contact the School Secretary for paying in details.  Card payments can also be taken over the phone (01279 654423) or in person at the Office/Shop at The Studios in Bishop's Stortford. Cash payments must ONLY be made to an Administrator at The Studios, and a receipt MUST be obtained.

All fees are payable within 14 days of receipt – late fees will be payable otherwise and accrue if your remittance is not received. If a pupil takes one class per week, invoices are sent termly; pupils taking 2 or more classes per week are invoiced monthly, to help parents spread the cost. It's easy to join our dance school in Hertfordshire

I have more questions - can you help?

Just ring or e mail us, and we will be pleased to answer any queries and ‘point you in the right direction’ for your child starting lessons with us – we will be delighted to help!

Update Monday 5th March: ALL CLASSES ARE ON!

All classes resume as normal from today onwards, at all venues. Thank you for your support last week where of course conditions were very much out of our control, and we hope you/your children enjoyed the snow!

CLASSES SATURDAY 3rd MARCH: Update Fri 2nd March. 8.30pm:

We have decided to cancel classes for tomorrow Saturday 3rd March, due to the potential aftermath of the recent adverse weather. As ever, the welfare of our staff, pupils and parents is of paramount importance, and thus although snow is not forecast, travel is likely to be hazardous with icy roads etc, and so we have taken this decision in the best interests of everyone. Classes/rehearsals will resume Sunday 4th March unless a significant deterioration of weather conditions ensues, in which case an update will be posted here and on our Facebook page.
