Make-up classes are only permitted within the term that they are missed. Should a dance class be cancelled during the term, we will offer a make-up class to the students involved or provide a credit of the single class price. (Please note that this does not apply to crew programs).
DC Fit Adult Fitness Classes
We do not offer any refunds or make-up classes for any classes you miss. Our price structure supports all students to attend classes on a casual basis. All classes must be booked in advance as class space is limited.
Late Penalties and Enrolment Cancellations
Any students attending classes with term fees outstanding will be charged an additional $20 administration fee.
Dance Central is a pre-paid school, ensuring the quality of classes and commitment to events and projects. All term fees are to be paid for in full and prior to a student’s second lesson. Should a student wish to cancel their enrolment, Dance Central must be notified prior to their third lesson in order to be eligible for a refund. In the circumstance of a refund being granted the amount would be for remaining classes only (not applicable to any already taken).
‘Peace of Mind’ Policy
If for any reason, your child does not wish to continue after their first lesson, we will provide a 100% refund. If you decide it’s not for you after your second lesson, we will provide a refund minus the two classes your child has attended. This allows our families the opportunity to trial our classes for 2 weeks before being committed for the entire term.
