    FAQs for 5-Day July School Holidays

    Can I just book into days and not the whole week?

    Because students will be learning routines in each class over the week, bookings are for the whole week. 


    Can I just book into the morning or afternoon sessions, not both?

    All bookings are for the full 9am-5pm program. If you would like to leave early or arrive late you are welcome to, however there will not be a discount.


    How do I enrol?

    You can enrol into the class via our customer portal on our website.


    How do I pay?

    Payments can be made online via the link in the invoice. Our reception is open 3:30pm-5:30pm Monday-Friday if you would prefer to pay over the phone or in person. Our number is 6282 7609. 


    What should students bring?

    Students should bring all meals and snacks for the day, as well as a water bottle. We recommend students bringing a pillow and a quiet activity such as a book or journal so that they can rest during breaks. 


    What level are the programs suited for?

    Our holiday program is best for students ranging from beginners to intermediates. You do not need any dance experience to be enrolled!


    What should students wear to class?

    As all students will be taking different styles of dance classes and acrobatic lessons, it is preferred that they wear comfortable clothing that is semi appropriate for each style. Here’s a quick guide to the most suitable attire. 

    Limbering, acrobatics, contemporary and jazz: tighter fitting to the body clothing, such as leggings and a fitted singlet or leotard. Students should be barefoot for Limbering and Acrobatics, and can be either barefoot or use a foot thong or half sock for Contemporary. Jazz shoes are preferred for Jazz, but students can wear a foot thong or be barefoot if they do not own them. 

    Hip Hop; Leggings and a baggy t-shirt, track pants, shorts; whatever you feel most comfortable in to express yourself! We suggest sneakers on the feet. 


    How will students remain safely distanced?

    Our two student groups will be separated for their classes. Our 9-12 yrs group will be in Studio 1, and use the reception area and waiting room during breaks. Our 6-8 yrs group will be in Studio 2, and use Studio 4 during breaks. 


    Can my 5 year old be enrolled in the 6-8 yrs group?

    We are only able to accept students within the outlined age groups. We are offering the Disney Dance Parties for our younger students.


    These 1½-hour masterclasses are perfect for intermediate to advanced students aged 12 yrs and up. A fun and fresh challenge that will complement each dancer’s skill set. Classes can be purchased individually or as a package.
