Classes for Adults – currently suspended.

Unfortunately we are unable to run our Adult classes while we are in Tier 2. We look forward to restarting these as soon as restrictions are lifted.                                                Please come and join our classes for adults which run on Saturdays at Challoner. Adult Modern with Miss Josie between 9am and 9.30am and Adult Tap with Miss Kelly between 10am and 10.30am. Both classes cost £5 each with payment direct to the teachers on a pay as you go basis. All abilities are welcome! Please wear comfortable clothing and bring a bottle of water!

Notice to stop classes

Parents are reminded that notice of one half term is required if pupils wish to stop classes, otherwise fees will still be required.



Please make sure that pupils are wearing correct uniform – the blue leotards and skirts for beginner pupils are available from Dancia International in Ewell who also stock all the dance shoes.

New uniform will still be available to purchase on Saturdays at Richard Challoner as follows:

Black leotards and skirts for seniors, blue leotards and skirts for Grade 2 ballet and above, purple leotards for JA pupils and black shorts for Modern.

Unfortunately the second hand sales will be limited to reduce handling.

Please make sure that all uniform is labelled. 

Cafe and Local Shops

Only Secondary school age pupils are permitted in the cafe area without parental supervision.

Everyone is responsible for keeping the area tidy so please use the bins provided. Parents are reminded that children should not be allowed to play in the Canteen area or on the stairs.

Secondary school-age pupils must be wearing appropriate clothing over their leotards and tights if they wish to go to the local shops during breaks between classes.

Security At Challoner

Challoner’s security system means the inner doors through to the hallway will be locked for safety reasons. Parents collecting from weekday classes are able to wait in the Reception area. Pupils arriving for weekday classes should wait in the Reception area until their dance teacher is available, usually about 15 minutes before classes begin.


Please take care when driving in and out of Challoner and follow the instructions of the site staff.


If Corpus Christi or Richard Challoner Schools are closed for health and safety reasons  or because of bad weather, no WA classes will be running. Updates will be posted on our website and Facebook page. Unfortunately, if classes have to be cancelled, no alternative dates will be available or reimbursements paid.
