PREP - GRADE 2
We are excited to announce some new class offerings for this age group!
We found the amount of classes on offer for this age group was overwhelming for our families, so have created class combos that we feel will ensure the greatest skill development for our students in genres that compliment each other perfectly!
We value knowing and supporting each individual child and family. To ensure this is the case, our classes are all one hour long. This extra time ensures we can balance connecting with our students as well as getting through all of the necessary coursework.
While ALL students are welcome at our school, should your child have additional needs, please let us know so we can support you to find the best class that will help them to shine! Similarly, if your child has specific goals and you are looking for additional guidance, we would love to support you!
This class covers classical ballet and lyrical. The perfect combination for any dancer who loves floating around the house, and expressing themselves through movement.
Optional SFD classical exams are available.
This class covers jazz and hip hop! The perfect combination for children who love dancing to the radio and current upbeat music. This class is for kids who love to groove and move.
Optional SFD jazz exams are available.
This class covers acrobatics and the incredible DanceCirque circus program!
The perfect class for kids who love to climb, tumble, juggle and be upside down!

Extension and Performance Teams
These teams are for dancers who would like to work hard and want the opportunity to perform at events throughout the year. Extra commitment to the team is required.
We also offer singing and keyboard classes! For this age group we encourage the longer group classes to gain strong basic technique and music theory, before considering to solo classes.
A reminder, all school age Classe now run for the extended one hour.
Please note: Group Music class times will be released shortly.
Timetable is subject to change.
Please note all fees (including additional and optional) below.
We have NO YEARLY ENROLMENT FEE
(ALL CLASSES ARE ONE HOUR)
Fees can be paid:
- By the term, in full, prior to the start of classes, via bank transfer.
- By the month, via direct debit (please note: enrolment is still by the term, 3 payments per term on the first of the month)
- If you require other arrangements (eg NDIS funding), please let us know so we can support you.
These monthly fees include ALL School Age Group Classes and are for a 10 week term.
Public holidays and shorter and longer terms will be adjusted accordingly.
Unlike past years, this includes Extension Teams, Troupes and Performance Teams.
Not included: Music Classes, Solo and Duo Classes.
MAKE UPS AND REFUNDS
For our group classes we have always accommodated unlimited make ups (subject to availability), however as group classes are a team activity, we ask families to please choose a class time they can commit to each week. Attending different classes each week will not support student's development, both in relation to skills and friendships.
In 2023 we are also asking families to communicate absences to our office prior to class. This will be a requirement to be able to book a make up. Notifying the office of absences allows space for other students waiting for make ups and ensures we are all supporting each other.
Choosing to take solo classes requires additional commitment. Teachers are paid for their time, whether or not students attend. In 2023 we will not be offering make up classes for solo classes. Refunds for solo classes are also not available. We understand that for some it may be difficult to commit each week, we encourage these students to attend group classes with unlimited make ups. We thank you for you understanding and support to ensure we can continue to offer solo opportunities.
Enrolment is by the term. Refunds and credits are not offered for part participation in a term, unless enrolling part way through the term. Two weeks notice is required when cancelling direct debit payments for the start of a new term.
ADDITIONAL COSTS TO BE AWARE OF
Please note: We do our very best to ensure all additional costs are kept to an absolute minimum while providing professional quality experiences.
We know dance, singing and acting can be expensive, and we feel classes should be accessible for all, so work hard to ensure this is possible. We offer all of the fun additional options such as costume photos and concert videos, but these are optional to order and not compulsory.
We also focus on providing top quality costumes to hire to keep costs down and ensure parents don't need to sew.
