2022 Terms & Conditions

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


2022 REGISTRATION FEE

For insurance & administration purposes, a registration fee of $60 per student is required at the start of each year. Your registration fee includes a brand new Everybody Dance Now uniform.


2022 FEES

Terms 1, 2 & 3 are 10 weeks in duration, however students are only charged for 9 weeks each of these terms. Term 4 is 7 weeks in duration, however students are only charged for 6 weeks this term. This is so that, in the case of a cancelled class by the teacher or your child needing to miss a lesson due to Covid regulations (eg; close contact or positive case) you will not be financially disadvantaged.


No further 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 class style in their age group or a similar one if available.


Term fees are calculated by adding the yearly fees total with stage rehearsal/concert fees & dividing them into four equal payments - so the amount is the same each term. Term fees include all booking & credit card fees. Term fees are due when booking your chosen class(es).

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.


Payment is due at the start of each term when reserving your spot in class. Classes do not run during school holidays or public holidays. Once paid, please understand that refunds or credits cannot be given for any missed classes.


Lil Groovers & Too Cool 4 School have the option of attending a make-up class if they are unwell on the day of their registered class. Please contact Miss Sarah before the make-up lesson you wish to attend.

END OF YEAR CONCERT PACK

Our concert packs include everything you could possibly need for the end of year concert, there is no need to source anything yourself. These packs are the most competitive rates on the South Coast. Concert packs are available to purchase from the start of term 3, for 3 weeks only. If you wish to participate in the concert, you will need to purchase a pack before they go off sale. This lets us know you will be participating in the concert & all items will be organised for your child. After this date, we cannot add extra items to our orders as they wouldn't be ready in time for the concert.


END OF YEAR CONCERT HANDBOOK

For your convenience, a concert handbook is distributed at the end of Term 2. This handbook contains everything you will need to know about everything to do with the concert. 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 waiting area during all classes. Our studio was carefully designed as it allows for discretionary viewing of class through the glass doors/viewing window without disrupting students. It is important that children are allowed the opportunity to focus & enjoy their class without distractions.


WAITING AREA

Siblings must be supervised at all times. For safety reasons, children are not permitted to play out the front of the studio at any time.

Tenants must be able to access their roller doors at all times, even outside of regular business hours. Trucks must be able to turn their vehicle around at all times, even outside of regular business hours. For safety reasons, all students must be accompanied through the front door & collected from the front door. Staff cannot be responsible for students who wait out the front of the studio or walk to a car unaccompanied.


CANCELLED CLASS

A complimentary class is added to each term (eg in a 10 week term, only 9 weeks are charged). This is so that in the case of a cancelled class by the teacher or your child needing to miss a lesson due to Covid regulations (eg close contact or positive case) you will not be financially disadvantaged. 


No further 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 class style in their age group or a similar one if available.

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. By enrolling in classes it is accepted by staff & parents/guardians that the student is fit to participate. It is understood & agreed that Everybody Dance Now will not be responsible for any injuries incurred during class activities or for the loss of personal effects or clothing.
