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 principles 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.
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.
Your child's classes cannot be transferred to another child. In the event that your child cannot attend a class, your child can attend a catch up class during the same term. Another child cannot take their place in the catch up class.
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.
Classes may be combined on a Saturday, and weekday mornings. 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.
Your child needs to attend the same level class as they are enrolled in. They may not attend a higher level class. Children are invited to attend an alternate genre of dance class. eg Musical Stars
Catch up classes are allowed in classes that are "FULL".
Once term fees have been paid a video will be sent out. This video has been made so that children who miss a week or two of lessons can do the video class at home instead. This video will compliment the term theme.
If your family is isolating please inform us immediately via our Missed Class Form. Your dancer can use our pre recorded video and also has an opportunity to attend a catch up class once isolation is over.
If your teacher is isolating we will inform you via email, SMS and our Facebook Group. Where possible we will have an alternate teacher take class. Should we not be able to arrange another teacher we will allow students to attend an alternate class day or venue. We will also add additional online classes whilst the teacher is in isolation.
