The 2024 Terms & Conditions were published 1st November, 2023

Please take a few minutes to read & ensure you understand our Terms & Conditions

 

As of March 1, 2023 all prices now include GST

 

There are only TWO opportunities to join us in 2024.  To join us for the first half of our dance season, registrations close Monday 5th February OR once your selected class is full, whichever comes first.  To join us for the second half of our dance season, registrations close Monday 17th June OR once your selected class is full, whichever comes first.  Our classes are progressive & so we do not accept registrations once the half season has begun.  Once a class is full, it is closed until the next half season.

 

YOUR COMMITMENT

Commitment for the first half of the 2024 Dance Season is from Monday 5th February until the mid-year concert on Sunday 16th June (excluding school & public holidays).  Commitment for the second half of the Dance Season is from Monday 17th June until the end-of-year concert on Saturday 30th November (excluding school & public holidays)

 

It is assumed that when you register with us you will be participating in our concerts, as this is what every class works towards.  Due to costuming, dress rehearsals, stage rehearsals, dance formations & patterns, students not participating in a concert do not attend the last 10 lessons leading up to a concert.  No credits, refunds or transfers are available as we do not invite waitlist students into class once the half season has begun.

Every style of dance you enrol in learns a different routine for the concert, students must be prepared to learn & remember multiple routines if multiple dance styles are selected.  Our classes are progressive & progress cannot be made without consistency:  students are expected to attend every lesson if they wish to retain their spot in class & participate in the concert.  No refunds, credits or transfers are available if you do not retain your spot in class as we do not invite waitlist students into class once the half season has begun.

Every class begins strictly on time. Your teachers warm up instructions at the start of class are extremely important, they are essential to prevent injuries & students must be present to hear them. Arriving after start time is disruptive to the whole class & puts the student at risk of injury. One-off lateness is understandable but you cannot retain your spot in class with repetitive lateness.

COMMUNICATION

Parents are required to join our studio app, it is the only way we are able to effectively communicate with our fast-growing dance family.  No SMS or emails will be sent (with the exception of fees invoices & a Welcome Email) It is the responsibility of each parent to ensure their push notifications are switched on.  In the (rare) case of a cancelled or re-scheduled class, an app update will be sent.  Everybody Dance Now cannot be held responsible if you miss anything.

For insurance & administration purposes, a registration fee of $70 per student is required at the start of each year. Your registration fee includes a brand new Everybody Dance Now uniform.

CONCERT HANDBOOKS
For your convenience, a concert handbook is distributed for both our mid-year & end-of-year concerts. These handbooks contain everything you will need to know about everything to do with the concerts. It is the responsibility of each parent to ensure they take the time to read the handbook.

VIEWING OF CLASS
All parents/guardians are required to remain in the reception lounge during all classes. Our studio was carefully designed as it allows for discretionary viewing of class through the one-way window without students becoming distracted by being able to see you. It is important that children are allowed the opportunity to focus & enjoy their class without distractions.

RECEPTION LOUNGE
Please respect our studio by keeping all areas tidy & all property unharmed. Please note that students (& siblings) in the reception lounge must be supervised by parents at all times.  Our studio is responsible for students while they are in class, but before & after their class they are the responsibility of parents.  The first class of the afternoon will be allowed into the dance room no more than 5 minutes before class start time. Please be aware that for safety reasons, the ramp in front of our shop is for travelling in & out of the studio only, it is not a play/socialising area. This also applies to all outside areas of our studio.  Please be considerate of our neighbours when entering & exiting the studio.  Thank you for your understanding & co-operation, it is very much appreciated.

TOILETS

To minimise disruptions to class, all students must please use the bathroom before their first lesson.  All toilets located inside The Plaza require a key.  Please understand that for safety reasons, this key will only be given to a parent, we cannot hand out the key to students for them to go on their own.  If your child needs to use the bathroom during class & you are not in the reception lounge to take them, a parent who is in the lounge will need to take them.  For security reasons, our staff are unable to leave the reception desk unattended now that we are in a very central, public location.

CHILD SUPERVISION

Please note that students in the reception lounge must be supervised by parents at all times.  Our studio is responsible for students while they are in class, but before & after their class they are the responsibility of parents.  The first class of the afternoon will be allowed into the dance room no more than 5 minutes before class start time.

PARKING
There is adequate parking in the Boree St Car Park, please be mindful of the 1 & 3 hour limit zones.

CANCELLED CLASS
No credits or refunds will be applied for any missed lessons or cancelled classes.  Students are welcome to attend a make-up class, either a different style class in their age group or a similar one if available.

CHANGE OF MIND

Once paid, no credits or refunds will be applied if you change your mind & choose to leave a class before the end of the season.  We encourage all students to see their commitment through & we do not invite waitlist students to join the class once the half season has begun.

CLOSURE DUE TO PANDEMIC
In the case of a lockdown due to the pandemic, all classes will switch to be online via Zoom or pre-recorded lesson until we are able to return to face to face lessons. No further credits or refunds will be applied if you choose not to participate online.

ATTENDANCE
It is expected that students attend their scheduled classes. Our classes are progressive, students cannot progress and improve without regular attendance. Students are expected to attend every lesson, dress rehearsal & stage rehearsal if they wish to retain their spot in class & participate in the concert.  Students who miss dress/stage rehearsals will forfeit their place in the concert.  In the case of extended illness, injury or travel - please email hello@everybodydancenowulladulla.com.au  If you have travel planned during November, you will be unable to participate in the end-of-year concert.

STUDIO UNIFORM
All dancers are expected to wear the supplied uniform to each lesson (this is included in your registration fee).

SHOES
All students are expected to have the required shoes for class, all are available to purchase direct from reception.

HAIR
Dancers must wear their hair neat and secure. Loose, untidy hair is a distraction as well as a safety issue.  A bun is required for all jazz & ballet classes.  A bun is preferred for all other classes, but a neat ponytail or braid will be sufficient.

PARTICIPATION
In order to provide adequate dance training, it is necessary for dance teachers to physically coach in the development of student technique & placement, which may require strictly appropriate physical contact between dance teaching staff & students. While all care is taken, as with any sport or physical activity; injuries can occur from time to time. Should an injury occur, staff will administer first aid immediately & notify parent/guardian. Should an emergency occur - Everybody Dance Now staff will immediately call for assistance; be that an ambulance or otherwise. This is if the incident is inside the studio or the immediate vicinity. The dancers family agrees to cover all expenses. Students may decline to participate in any classroom activity. Dance is a form of discipline & student behaviour in the classroom should reflect this.
