FAQs

How Do I Enrol?

Fill in our online enrolment form so that we have all your information on hand and can reserve a place in your preferred class. A $33 deposit is required to hold your place in the class/es and/or on the waiting list for a class. You only need to enrol once per year and can find the form here on our website.

Can I come and try a class?

All children and teens are required to enrol prior to attending and to pay a $33 deposit per class when enrolling. After attending your first class, if you’re not convinced its right for your dancer, let us know and we can cancel your enrolment with nothing further to pay. If you love your class, we’ll issue you an invoice for the remainder of term (minus your deposit already paid). As we offer casual payment for adult classes, adults can choose to pay for a casual class before signing up for a term/purchasing a class pass package.

How many classes per week does my child need to do?

This is up to you! We have no minimum class requirements (excluding some ballet levels that require two classes per week for exam work). The more classes and styles that your child participates in, the more they will improve – we all know practice makes perfect! Our Young Dancers Company dancers have minimum class requirements they have to meet prior to auditioning.

How do I pay?

Your deposit must be paid by credit card/Paypal when enrolling. Once you enrol you will be sent an invoice for the remainder of term which can be paid by direct deposit, cash or credit card. We also offer fortnightly/monthly payments via Integrapay. The exception to this is adult classes which may be paid for on a casual basis as you attend.

Do I get a refund if I can’t come to class?

We are unable to provide refunds for missed classes, however you can do a makeup lesson for a missed class within the same term.
We do understand that kids are kids and sometimes broken bones or sickness might mean that you have to miss class for an extended period of time. In these exceptional circumstances, arrangements can be made.

Classes do not take place on public holidays and are not billed as part of term fees.

Can I watch my child’s classes?

Parents and siblings inside the rehearsal room can often be a distraction to children in dance class. For this reason, we do not allow parents to watch inside the rehearsal room, but we do have CCTV in our waiting room.

We also use an app called Azagi, which is specifically designed for dance studios to allow you to see photos and videos of your child in class and keep up to date with their progress. You can actually witness your child performing that new step and participate in their sense of pride and accomplishment!

What does my child wear to class?

Dress guidelines are below. It’s ok to wear bare feet/socks for your first few classes.

Preschool classes – Girls: A leotard and optional ballet skirt available at your local dance shop. Hair should be pulled back off the face. Pink leather ballet shoes should be worn. Fairy dresses, fluffy tutus and dress-ups can be distracting and are best left at home.
