Bebe Ballet Terms and Conditions
Bebe Ballet’s primary means of communication is via email. Current families will receive weekly newsletters and important information via email. It is the family’s responsibility to ensure that Bebe Ballet has been provided with an up-to-date email address that is regularly checked. Bebe Ballet is able to include two email addresses per family. Bebe Ballet recommends adding firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com to your contacts so emails do not end up in the dreaded Spam folder!
Bebe Ballet is also proud to provide information via our Dance Studio app. This can be download at https://bebeballet.teamapp.com
In the infrequent case of urgent information (for example, unexpected class cancellations or performance changes), we will send an SMS to all families. Please make sure the mobile phone number provided is correct and up-to-date. Bebe Ballet is able to include 2 mobile numbers per family.
Please advise Bebe Ballet in writing should there be any change to your dancers contact details and medical conditions.
Current families will receive a newsletter at the start of each term as well as a mini newsletter “Bebe Blast” at the end of every week. Reading our polcies (which can be found on our website) and weekly correspondence will assist you and your dancer to have a wonderful experience with Bebe Ballet.
Fees are due according to the date on the invoice that is sent to you via email. Please see our “Fee Policy” LINK for further details.
Bebe Ballet has a first aid kit on site. In the event of a medical emergency, a dancers parent/s or guardian will be contacted for the child to be picked up or permission asked to take the child to the nearest medical centre. In the event of a serious emergency an ambulance will be called.
Dance Risk Assessment
Bebe Ballet staff take the utmost care to provide a safe dance experience. Unfortunately hazards exist in all activities and parents should be aware of the hazards that exist. We have identified the following hazards associated with dance and our premises, and identified the following controls to minimise accidents. If you are concerned for the physical health of your child undertaking this activity please consult a sports therapy specialist and advise Bebe Ballet staff.
Hazards: Personal injury, student-to-student contact, slipping and tripping.
Controls: Dance to take place only in dance space studios, first aid kit on site, uniform to be worn including appropriate footwear (see Uniform Information Sheet), class sizes kept to safe levels, dance floors kept free of obstacles, staff to undertake first aid course annually, warm up before class and stretching only after class, verbal warnings to be sensible and careful.
Please note: the nature of dance occasionally requires student-teacher contact for the purposes of placement and correction of technique.
All property brought to Bebe Ballet remains the responsibility of the student. Bebe Ballet takes no responsibility for any stolen or misplaced property on the studio premises and we encourage our families to avoid bringing valuable items into the studio where possible. Bebe Ballet will store lost property until the end of each term.
No food to be brought to the studio
Bebe Ballet encourages a nut-free policy at the studio to ensure the safety of any students or parents with allergies to nuts or nut products. Most of our venues do not allow food to be eaten on site due to students with severe allergies.
Betty Ballerina, Grange and Walkerville locations do not allow food to be consumed inside.
To preserve the intellectual property of our creative teachers, all choreography for classes, group dances, annual demonstrations and concerts and alike taught by Bebe Ballet teachers, remains the property of Bebe Ballet and/or its teachers and may not be used without the permission of Bebe Ballet.
Returning after injury and serious illness
Should your child be returning from an injury or serious illness a medical clearance will be required to continue Bebe Ballet classes.
