Your child’s punctuality and regular attendance in class is very important for their growth and understanding, their comfort in class, to their peers and our teaching staff. It is a commitment for you to ensure your child attends their classes on time each week and attends all lessons planned for them. Not only do absences impact the concert routines we create, it also impacts the social and confidence-building principals we work hard to foster in each age group.
Should your child miss a class you must notify us of the absence by completing the form below. We encourage your child to take a catch up class. Notification of a catch up class is required by the parent/caregiver to ensure the duty of care of all dancers is maintained and that the teacher of the catch up class is aware that your child is coming. Please note that it is the parents/caregivers role to organise the notification of the catch up class. NO refunds, discounts or credits are given for any missed classes. Catch up classes are a goodwill gesture offered to our students and are not redeemable as class credits.
Catch up classes MUST be taken during the same term.
Should your child be sick/away on the final week of term you will be unable to arrange a catch up class.
Catch up classes are NOT allowed to be taken during “Family Watching Week”.
4 week Trial
Should your child be completing a "4 week trial" the make up class MUST be completed during the 4 week trial. The 4 week trial cannot be extended for a further week.
Public Holidays & Christmas Pageant
Classes are generally held on public holidays and pageant day. Venues and times may change slightly on these days so please check newsletters and emails regarding public holiday and pageant day classes as NO refunds or discounts or credits are given for these missed classes. If you are unable to attend a public holiday class, please fill in the online missed class form below to arrange a catch up class for your dancer within the same term.
Saturday classes and Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday morning classes
Classes may be combined on a Saturday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday mornings due to locations being close to each other. In the event that classes are merged on the above mentioned days students will be given the option to either attend the same class at an alternate venue on the same day or to arrange a catch up class within the same term.
