Dance School Terms and Conditions

Enrolment

Enrolment forms must be completed at the start of each year for all students (new and old). It is expected that students enrol for a full year of dance, if for some reason you wish to withdraw an enrolment I must be informed. Simply failing to attend class is not regarded as cancellation of enrolment. If notification of intention to leave is not received then the parent may be liable for full payment of that term’s fees. Failure to turn up to class is not classified as notification.

Fees

Fees are due within 2 weeks of term commencement. A $10.00 Late Fee will apply to fees paid after the due date. Fees are non-refundable for classes missed, or if your child does not complete the entire term. The Academy’s term dates are based on government school terms of 9 – 11 weeks in length. There is a 20% reduction to the fees for each additional child from the same family (the lesser fee being reduced).

Attendance

Regular attendance is a necessity as each student is important to the progress of the class as a whole. The Principal must be notified if a student cannot attend class. Lessons that are missed because of sickness or holidays are not refundable. These classes can be made-up where possible by attending a class close to that students level. (Ie. missed grade 1 class can be made up by taking a grade 2 class.)

Uniform

Only the correct dance uniform (as described in the uniform section) is to be worn in class. Students should be neatly groomed at all times. All articles of clothing must be clearly named. The principal or staff will take no responsibility for any lost property.

Class Arrival / Departure

Parents are required to escort their child to the Studio and wait with them until the commencement of class. If parents must drop children off early then the child must be brought into the classroom to wait with the teacher. No students should be left in the waiting area without supervision. Parents are requested to call for their children immediately after class. All children must stay inside the studio until parents arrive. The Scout Hall has station car parking available, please do not double park or park in the driveway.

Audiences’

Parents and friends are not permitted into the studio during class times. Parents may attend the open days held in the last week of Term One and Term Two. If siblings accompany parents to view class, they must remain seated and quiet. NO food or drink is permitted in the Studio.

Annual Concert

Participation in our Annual Concert in December is encouraged and expected. Please notify Miss Julie immediately if your child cannot participate in the performance.

Medical

Parents must inform Miss Julie of any Medical / Allergy conditions.
