Welcome To Shaarei Shoshanim Talent Center!
The classes are geared for motivated 8 to 14 year old girls, beginner, intermediate and advanced levels, and where applicable, performance levels as well*. Please note that each class level is generally associated with the number of semesters that your child has attended. If your child has not mastered the specific skills associated with their previous class level, the instructor may suggest that she retake that class. For all students who are new to our program, but are NOT beginners to that particular elective, please pay attention to the brief summary attached to each elective to know what level class your child should attend.
*Most classes are available for ages 12-14 in a separate setting as a Senior skill level.
Can my child join the program if the semester has already started? Will I be charged full price?
She can join the program if there’s a slot available. Contact the office for a coupon code to deduct the unattended classes.
Does my daughter get a make-up class if she missed one by a personal reason?
No, the make-up classes take place only if were cancelled by Shaarei Arazim (weather conditions, etc.)
Do I get refund if my daughter changed her mind?
The refund can be issued only after the first class. Later than that you can try switching to a different elective. Check availability with the office.
Do I get a discount if my child attends the program more than one time a week?
The discount is applicable only for the same elective. For instance, it may be Gymnastics twice a week, and not Arts and Drums once a week each.
