Policies

  1. Though we strongly advise all three core genres are studied, we require students to study a minimum of two core genres at Jitterbugs Swingapore® (classical ballet is a compulsory genre). The following class combinations may be taken
    • Classical Ballet, Modern Jazz & Tapping.
    • Classical Ballet & Modern Jazz.
    • Classical Ballet & Tapping.
    • Modern Jazz and Tapping (with Classical Ballet studied under another reputable dance program).
  2. Classical ballet must be studied. If students are enrolled in an external Ballet program, they are required to inform Jitterbugs Swingapore® what studio and level they are enrolled in, and update us on their exam performance each year by providing a digital copy of the exam certificate.
  3. New students may enter our Pre Program and at Level 1 without experience. From level 2 onwards, students may only enter our program with previous dance experience (examination based or otherwise). New students will be placed into the appropriate levels according to experience.
  4. All students are required to take CSTD examinations to progress to the next level. This is applicable for Classical Ballet, Modern Jazz, Tapping and Contemporary. Examinations will be taken in November of each year and are compulsory for all students.
  5. All students are encouraged to perform in our annual concert.
  6. A select team of students will be invited each year to participate and represent the studio in local and / or international competitions. All students attending Jitterbugs Swingapore® may ONLY compete with Jitterbugs Swingapore®. Our students are not permitted to compete with any other dance school in  any dance competition, even if the genre they wish to compete in is not  studied at our studio. Any students found to be competing with other schools will not be permitted to continue at Jitterbugs.
  7. All students studying in the Group Vocal Class must commit to the full one-year program and take the LAMDA examinations at the end of the year.
