FAQs

Attending LCDC

1. Can I try a dance class before joining?
Yes! We have FREE trials available for every dance class at LCDC so you can come along and try out your preferred class for free. Booking is required in advance by selecting the ‘Free Membership’ option alongside the class you’d like to attend.

2. Do I need any previous dancing experience?
No, you do not need any previous experience. We have pupils of all ages and abilities. Your skills will be developed to help you progress and be the best dancer you can be!

3. Are there any age restrictions?
Children must be aged 18 months to begin our classes. Each class has its own recommended age bracket, however we can be flexible with this. If you have any questions regarding your child’s age suitability, please get in touch for a chat.

4. Do you have wheelchair/disabled facility access?
At LCDC, we are on the ground level and have a ramp that leads up to our front door. We also have disabled toilets in the building. 

5. How do I get to LCDC Studio?
LCDC is based at Unit 9 Newhailes Business Park in Musselburgh as shown in the map below. Our studio is easily accessible via car or public transport.

6. How early should I arrive?
Please arrive at the studio 10 minutes before your class is about to begin, this gives you time to go to the toilet or get changed in time for your class start time.

7. What if I’m running late?
That’s no problem, but please don’t make it a habit. Please phone the studio on 0131 653 1780 or send us a message via our social media platforms to let the teachers know that you will be late.

8. Is there parking available?
There is lots of on-site free parking, as well as additional car parks for the neighbouring shops.

 

During Your Visit

7. What should I wear?
When you first come along to your class, wear some sports clothes.

Once you are a member, each class has a dedicated uniform, which can be ordered through the studio by filling in a uniform order form. We advise giving the child/young person a couple of weeks before purchasing a uniform to make sure they enjoy the class. 

8. Do you have storage for personal belongings etc?
For the duration of the class, storage spaces are available for personal belongings, however, all items are left at their own risk.

9. Can I bring my own food and drink?
Only bottled water is allowed in the studios. You can only bring juice and a snack if you are staying for more than one class and this will be kept in storage until you have a break.

10. Can I watch my children in their dance class?
Not on a weekly basis, however, there are designated days throughout the year and frequent performances/medal sessions where you will get a chance to come in and watch your child dance. We also film sections of classes weekly and share on our social media channels.
