Project "A Pedestrian Rank" implemented by the municipality of Ixelles and Studio 52 Dance Academy for the 2017-2018 season

Our asbl is aware of and concerned about the difficulties encountered by working parents because their temporality is often not very compatible with that of the school. Indeed, when the latter ends around 3:30 p.m. on weekdays and around 12:30 p.m. on Wednesdays and extracurricular activities begin, a significant proportion of parents cannot, because of their work, take their children there as soon as these activities take place. outside school buildings.

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

In addition, the municipality of Ixelles has decided to organize a row on Wednesday afternoon from several schools to places of extracurricular activities around these schools, to allow parents for whom it is difficult to be able to free themselves. on Wednesday afternoons to register their children for these external activities.

The row on foot will only include the outward journey to our asbl. Children must therefore be picked up at the end of their course at the “Studio 52 Dance Academy” dance school.

Schools served

The location of the school is an essential factor because the journey must be as short as possible.

  • It should not be too far from extracurricular activities in order to allow the rank to complete the journey within a reasonable period of time.

  • The urban configuration must also be taken into account and, for example, crossing major boulevards or passing trams may prove to be incompatible with the ranks.

This is why the choice of the municipality fell on the following 3 schools:

  • School n ° 7 of Bois de la Cambre, Avenue du Bois de la Cambre 173, 1050 IXELLES

  • School n ° 8 of Bois de la Cambre n ° 8, Avenue du Bois de la Cambre 175, 1050 IXELLES

  • Saint-Joseph school, Chaussée de Boondael, 621 - 1050 IXELLES

Our dance lessons served by the row on Wednesday

Our experience in rows on foot
