Q. Can we have look/see/try out before we enrol?
A. Yes - Simply contact the office to book in for your try out.
Q. What should my child wear for the try out?
A. Something comfortable and safe to dance in like leggings, singlet top or T shirt. Street shoes are not permitted in the dance space so bare feet is the best option if they do not have any 'dress up' dance shoes to wear.
Please note: As most students will be wearing the correct uniform in class we recommend that you let your child know that they will likely be wearing different clothes to the other children (as to ensure they feel comfortable in giving the class a go).
Q. What are the fees?
A. Term fees are based on the number of weeks in a school term and vary from 8 to 10 weeks in 2019. Fees start at $165.00 for a 10 week term - 45 minute class. Discounts apply for early payment.
The Fee schedule for a 10 week term is outlined on page 18 of our General Information document. A non-refundable annual enrolment fee of $13.00 (GST inclusive) is payable at the time of enrolling. For more information about enrolment please click here
Q. Can we do a make-up class?
A. Yes. If your child cannot attend their normal weekly class you can arrange for them to have a make up class on a different day/time. You will need to contact the office via email (preferred method) or phone to arrange this.
Q. Do you have a uniform?
