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 2018 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 hire 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 shows have been booked for Sunday 2nd December, 2018 at GPAC Playhouse Theatre.

 

We will be holding 3 rehearsals in 2018 – Saturday 17th November, Saturday 24th November and dress rehearsal on Wednesday 28th November. To ensure our show is of high quality it is compulsory for all students to attend ALL of these rehearsals. Exceptions won’t be made in 2018 if you are unable to commit to these dates.

Is a DVD of the concert made?

YES, the show 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 2018.  Additional costs will be incurred for exams.

YES, second hand 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 are available through the studio. Black Tap Shoes for Girls/Boys/Adults
Black Jazz Shoes for Boys in mixed classes and black street shoes/runners for hip-hop.
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 in writing prior to the commencement of their class and given clearance by their GP to participate.
