Please take a few minutes to read & ensure you understand our Terms & Conditions

YOUR COMMITMENT

Commitment for the first half of the 2024 Dance Season is from Friday 2nd February until the mid-year recital on approx. Sunday 30th June) (excluding school & public holidays). 

Commitment for the second half of the Dance Season is from Monday 22nd July until the end-of-year spectacular on approx. Saturday and Sunday 23/24 November (excluding school & public holidays).

It is assumed that when you register with us you will be participating in our concerts; as this is what every class works towards.  Due to costuming, dress rehearsals, stage rehearsals, dance formations & patterns, students not participating in a concert must notify at the start of the year.  

Every style of dance you enrol in learns a different routine for the concert. Students must be prepared to learn & remember multiple routines if multiple dance styles are selected.  Our classes are progressive & progress cannot be made without consistency:  students are expected to attend every lesson if they wish to retain their spot in class & participate in the concert.  No refunds, credits or transfers are available if you do not retain your spot in class.
