    How long would you recommend a child be in a particular class before taking an exam? My daughter is in pre-ballet, Tuam, since September. Would she need a second year before taking her exam?
    Also, has there been a change to the time table and is the Tuam showcase this April 8th? I can’t find a date when these posts were created so I’m unsure if they relate to last year or this year.
    Kind Regards,

    Thank you Leighton, I must book my time off work for both of those. I also meant to ask you about the change to the Tuam time-table. Are these changes coming into place from April 28th? I wasn’t sure if the update was for last year or for this year.

    The time table was intended for this year, but depends on a few things happening. I am most likley going to have to keep the time table the same for now. I will change the Web Site again.

    Thank you. The time suits me better as it is now but if it does change I can arrange to work around it.

      I am always looking to providing additional classes. It is just a matter of fitting them in. It will not be possible in the next couple of years.

    Hi, I’m just wondering if you have space for my daughter Robyn? She is 5 and in senior infants? If you could let me know when you get a chance that would be great

    Kind regards

      Hi Naimh,
      Thanks for getting in touch.
      Ballet classes are for children aged 4+, so the time for your daughter to start will be in September.
      I hope you think of us and get back in touch over the summer.
      Kind regards
