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, and to your contacts so emails do not end up in the dreaded Spam folder!

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.

terms & conditions

Please advise Bebe Ballet in writing should there be any change to your dancers contact details and medical conditions.

Current families will receive a confirmation at the start of each term as well as a weekly mini newsletter - Monday Minute. Current families will also receive a Student Website with all information regarding concerts, exams and other opportunities. Reading our policies and weekly correspondence will assist you and your dancer to have a wonderful experience with Bebe Ballet.

In the event that we need to cancel classes we will move our classes onto an online format. There will be no credits or refunds for the move to an online platform.

In the event of forced closure Bebe Ballet will be offering online classes. Our purpose for providing online classes is to give our students a sense of normality, community, consistency, exercise and expression.  

The aim of our online classes is not to make great strides in improving technique but we hope to maintain the current level of technique, flexibility and interest. 

Depending on the age of our students we will be offering prerecorded classes as well as live classes through ZOOM.

online classes

As participation is conducted outside the controlled environment of our own studios, your child participates in these online dance classes at their own risk. You understand that dance is similar to sport and, although rare, injury may occur. Bebe Ballet will not be held responsible for any injury or loss that may occur to your child during their online dance classes.

To ensure your child has a space space you will need to have:
* an adequate clear space for your dancer to move in.
* The floor will need to be clear of any objects or spills and the surface is appropriate to dance on
* The ceiling needs to be at least 2 metres from the floor to ceiling
* There is to be no glass, china or other breakable material that may lead to injury in the room in which they are undertaking the class. 
* You will need to avoid the use of blades, weapons or sharp instruments of any description

If an exercise or action causes sharp or sudden pain, stop immediately, apply first aid or seek help. 

If you have or suspect you have an injury or are sick you should avoid activity 

Where possible, have any pets or young siblings in another space to avoid sudden tripping hazards

Recording, sharing of class links and passwords and unauthorised redistribution of footage of the online classes is strictly prohibited.

All outstanding fees and invoices must be paid in full prior to access to our online content.

online class waiver

By clicking on any of the Zoom Meeting links you are acknowledging and agreeing that:
* Your child has gained your permission to be online
* You understand our guidelines for online classes
* When logging your dancer into the live Zoom class the student must be signed in as their full name (first name and surname. eg Ellie Smith) NOT their parents name or nickname. Only students with their full name requesting to join our live class (in Zoom they call it a meeting) will be accepted into the class. Your child's full name is the name that we have on their enrolment.
* You will ensure that your child is wearing appropriate clothing that is suitable for dancing and in no way revealing
* That, where possible, you will ensure webcams are located in a communal space like a living room - rather than a bedroom. If only a private space like a bedroom is available you will commit to keeping the door open and/or you or another adult will stay present for the class. 
* These zoom meetings are being closely monitored by our Bebe Ballet Team and have strict safety platforms built in. Each class will be recorded and archived for child safety purposes.
* Though the teacher may be able to see you, it is not the same as dancing in person at the studio. Dancers and their carers will need to take more responsibility than usual for the safety of your space and of your child’s movements

co parenting policy

Bebe Ballet is happy to have two email addresses (and two mobile numbers) for contact and to send information where there is a co-parenting arrangement in place. We do not manage co-payments. The parent enrolling the student will be responsible for payments irrespective of co-parenting agreements. 


Fees are due according to the date on the invoice that is sent to you via email. Please see our “Fee Policy” for further details.

child protection

Bebe Ballet is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all children and young people accessing our dance school. We support the rights of the child and will act, without hesitation, to ensure a child safe environment is maintained at all times. We also support the rights and wellbeing of our staff and volunteers and encourage their active participation in building and maintaining a secure environment for all participants.

With the safety of our families a number one priority, Bebe Ballet is very serious about upholding Child Protection laws and policies within the studio as well as at public performances and in the online arena (website and social media).

privacy & protection of our Bebe ballet family

The Bebe Ballet Team are educated in the negative impact of inappropriate music and costume selection when it comes to performing dance routines and are wholeheartedly committed to ensuring children in all of our dance routines are not subjected to any inappropriate songs or costuming. We recognise that songs with sexist, explicit, violent, racist, homophobic or criminal content may influence our dancers and/or audience and will strive to avoid using such music. We are committed to restricting costumes that project sexuality, contain explicit graphic or textual content.

taking images of children

If Bebe Ballet uses an image of a child it will avoid naming or identifying the child or it will, wherever possible, avoid using both the first name and surname. We will not display or give out personal information such as residential address, email address or telephone numbers without gaining consent from the parent/guardian. We will only use appropriate images of a child, relevant to our dance school and ensure that the child is suitably clothed in a manner that promotes dance.

We also require the privacy of others to be respected and disallow the use of camera phones, videos and cameras inside changing areas and bathrooms.

We understand that families love to capture images and video footage of their dancers but as a dance school, our first and foremost concern is the safety and wellbeing of our students. 

- Any online or offline comments or posts perceived to be obscene, defamatory, threatening, harassing, discriminatory or hateful towards Bebe Ballet staff, students or families may subject the owner to disciplinary or legal action.

- While affiliated with our studio, (for example, images of your child in Bebe Ballet uniform) we will not tolerate any posts that are racially, sexually, physically or religiously offensive.

- You may not post photographs / videos that feature Bebe Ballet dancers other than your own online without the proven consent of their parent/guardian.

code of conduct

To ensure the smooth, safe running of Bebe Ballet and an enjoyable experience by all, below you will find our code of conduct. As always we are open to feedback, so if any of the requirements outlined below are unclear or concerning, please give us a call to discuss further. We do reserve the right to dismiss or take disciplinary action on any students or parents who breach our studio’s code of conduct.

Families who do not comply with their fee or costume payment obligations will be charged a late fee, and/or excluded from performances. External debt collection may occur when fees remain overdue and this will be at the expense of the client.

We are unable to take responsibility for our students before or after their scheduled classes and it is the responsibility of the parent to ensure their child is picked up and dropped off on time. In the case of an emergency or unavoidable delay, please contact the studio immediately to inform us of the situation so we can keep your child calm and safe until they can be collected.

In the rare case of a parent or student showing disrespect or defamation to any parent, staff member or student, a meeting will be called immediately and dismissal may be considered at the discretion of the Principal/Director. Physical, mental, emotional or cyber bullying by parents, staff or students will not be tolerated and may result in dismissal from the studio.

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 management reserves the right to change teachers or timetabling when necessary at any time throughout the year.

Choreography, costuming and studio policies remain the intellectual property of Bebe Ballet and may not be reproduced or sold by any students, parents or staff without permission of the Principal/Director.

complaint handling process

When a complaint is received in writing, the person receiving the complaint (the admin team or the Principal) will:

 * listen carefully and ask questions to understand the nature and extent of the problem;
* ask what the complainant would like to happen;
* explain the different options available to help resolve the problem;
* take notes; and
* maintain confidentiality but not necessarily anonymity.

Once the complainant decides on their preferred option for resolution, Bebe Ballet will assist, where appropriate and necessary, with the resolution process. This may involve:

 * supporting the person complaining to talk to the person being complained about
 * bringing all the people involved in the complaint together to talk objectively through the problem
 * gathering more information (e.g. from other people that may have seen the behaviour);
 * referring the complainant to an external agency such as a community mediation centre, police or anti-discrimination agency.

 At any stage of the process, a person can seek advice from or lodge a complaint with an anti-discrimination commission or other external agency.
