We have public liability insurance to 5 million pounds.
We hold official lettings with Leeds City Council for the clubs held within Leeds Schools.
Performing - We perform only in venues that hold a PRS licence. We are aware of PRS and copyright requirements for performing musical theatre numbers.
Our show workshop shows are showcases to show parents what we have been exploring and we do not charge for tickets for these.
Children taking part in our club shows do so in Cherries or Next Stepz t shirts so as not to replicate original copywritten costumes. We choreograph our own dances and use limited numbers of songs from each Musical when exploring them.
We are aware of the requirements for children's performance as set by Leeds City Council.
