FAQ

What are the fees?

Fees are payable by the term only (unless by arrangement with the Dance Studio Manager)

Please contact us for our 2017 fee structure

A 10% discount on fees is given to 2 or more children from the same family. (This discount is not applicable to the
adult classes)

Is there a dance uniform?

Yes there is. Please see our uniforms page for more information.

Do I have to make costumes?

NO, the costume fee per term covers the cost of the costumes used for the end of year show.
NB: The only part parents are responsible for is the purchase of the required dance tights and shoes.

Is there an end of year concert?

YES, our concert has been booked for Sunday 3rd December, 2017 at GPAC Playhouse Theatre.

 

We will be holding 3 rehearsals this year – Saturday 18th November, Thursday 23rd November (dress rehearsal) and Saturday 25th November. To ensure our show is of high quality it is compulsory for all students to attend ALL of these rehearsals.

Is a DVD of the concert made?

YES, the concert is filmed and a DVD produced.
NB: Purchase of the DVD is optional.

Are dance exams available?

DanceWorks Geelong will be offering optional ballet, jazz and tap exams using the ATOD syllabus in 2017.  Additional costs will be incurred for exam work.

YES, recycled tap and jazz shoes can be bought and sold via DanceWorks Geelong.
It is probably best to try this avenue first to allow for growing feet.

Where can I buy dance gear?

Geelong Dance and Fairywear Supplies 70-72 Little Malop St Geelong PH: 5221 7311
stock our base uniforms and shoes. DanceWorks Geelong singlets, tees and hoodies is available through the studio Director. Black Tap Shoes for Girls/Boys/Adults
Black Jazz Shoes for Boys in mixed classes and street shoes/runners for hip-hop (boys only class)
Tan Jazz Shoes for Subs level and above/Pink Ballet shoes for Kinders, Tinies, and all ballet classes (not jiffies)

Some general things to remember:

  • Dance is a team activity. Attendance at weekly classes is the only way that students can learn the routines and their positions within the dance. Refunds are not provided for missed classes or change of mind.
  • Attendance at all of the rehearsals is compulsory as it allows the student to feel comfortable performing on stage and to get rid of the “Stage fright” before performing in front of an audience.

Medical Conditions
Any medical conditions that your child has must be reported to the studio prior to the
commencement of their class and given clearance by their GP to participate. Please explain the information in writing so that this can be passed on to your child’s instructor.
