Personal Details:

This is self-explanatory, please fill in as required.


Dietary Needs:        

Please fill this in noting any Medical Allergies or Dietary requirements you may have (including Cultural requirements), so we can ensure you will be catered for.

We will also do our best to cater for lifestyle choices, but please understand some may be difficult for us – contact the Organiser if you have any questions.


Accommodation Needs:

We ask if you require a ground floor room.   This is really a question for during the school - eg: are you capable of using the stairs each day? will you be carrying heavy or bulky instruments?

 We will have 'strapping young students' to help carry your luggage on arrival & departure - if you need it.


RSCDS Membership:

Insert your RSCDS membership No.    It is a requirement that we confirm your membership with RSCDS in ‘Coates Crescent’ for you to receive your RSCDS discount.


Teacher Training Certification:

This is for candidates sitting Units 2 & 3 of the RSCDS Teaching Certificate.

Please note that, in addition to registering for Summer School, Units 2 & 3 forms and fees should be sent to NZ Branch as explained on the NZ Branch website.

Please refer any questions to the NZ Branch Education Coordinator, Lee Miller.

Note: Ticking this section will have you skipping all the ‘Classes’ options



If under the age of 18 years, any JAM’s attending must include details of an accompanying adult responsible for them during the entire School.


Emergency Contact:

Again, this is self-explanatory, please fill in as required.


A note for all dance classes:

 We have future teachers sitting Unit 2 & 3 exams at this school.  They can’t do this without our help.  Your class may be called on to provide ‘stooges’ for exam classes – it’s a marvellous opportunity to support the future of our favourite pastime! 😊


Dance Class options:

The list of Dance classes available is as follows ….

JAMs (ages 8 - 13)

Youth Challenge (ages 14 - 40)

Starters & Re-starters




Very Advanced Low Impact

Very Advanced High Impact


The Class Selection Guide tab has a detailed description of what you should expect when attending these classes.

There are also two lists of formations your Summer School teacher may expect you to be quite familiar with – but please note: ‘Starters & Re-starters’, and ‘Development’ classes will be working on or through list one 😊

Please read through the ‘Class Selection Guide’ and the ‘Formations Lists’ carefully – you and your home class teacher should be confident you will meet the recommended experience and physical ability levels for the class selected.


Musicians Classes:

Musicians will gain the most benefit from the course if they can already play at least some tunes at dance speed.

Provision & transport of instruments is the participant’s responsibility. If required, the organising committee will do its best to put you in contact with a possible local provider with whom to make your own arrangements.

Musicians’ classes will be held in the afternoons, run with expert help & advice from the overseas & local talent; this also allows the morning for dance classes should you wish to be the ‘most amazing all-rounder’ 😊


Privacy Info:

This section reminds you to let us know if you do not wish to have your details available to other dancers at the school, plus if you do not wish to be in any videos/photos taken that may be published on the RSCDS NZB (or Region) newsletters, website, brochures and / or Facebook.
