If your child is unable to attend their regular class, and a similar level class has availability, yes students can attend make-up classes. Please note that make-up classes do not roll over into the next term nor are there refunds offered for missed classes.




Do you do exams?


For ballet we do require students to take exams from the age of 6 and up (year 1 at school). Ballet classes are compulsory twice a week for students Year 2 at school and up. For all other styles of dance there are no exams.




Can I watch my child's class?


For preschool students we do allow parents to be in the classroom until their child has settled in and are comfortable in their surroundings. For school age children we do prefer the students to have just the teacher in the classroom so all students can focus on their learning, however there is some flexibility for new students/parents if they wish to watch part of the first class.




How much do your classes cost?


Our term fees are calculated per duration of the class and we offer discounts when a student attends multiple classes. Private lessons are also available upon request. For a full overview, please view our price list.
