Frequently Asked Questions

How do I enrol?

That’s simple. After deciding on which class/classes you /your child wishes to attend, Arrive at studio a few minutes prior your chosen class. The office ladies will take care of the rest and get you started.

My child has never danced before. Does this matter?

Not at all ! We all have to start somewhere. Our classes are graded by age, so that everyone has the ability to learn at their own pace. Our qualified teachers and their senior assistants will always assist new students so that they feel comfortable and enjoy the learning experience.

What does my child wear to class?

We now have a compulsory uniform available for purchase from The Dance Shoppe located at our studio in Woy Woy. Hair should always be pulled back. Appropriate dance shoes will be required as per the genre when you have settled in.

How do I pay for classes?

Fees can be paid on a week to week, monthly or termly basis. Due to fixed studio overheads all classes are payable regardless of attendance.We also offer package discounts for students taking six or more classes per week. Classes can be paid by cash or Eftpos to the office ladies when you arrive at the studio.

Is the end of year pantomime compulsory?

Nothing is compulsory at Dancinality. However our end of year production is so much fun and gives the children the opportunity to perform to a large audience in full costume and allows them the chance to show their accomplishments and shine.

What is involved in the end of year Panto?

Every class requires a costume (this is explained in the hand out material you will be given when you join Dancinality). There is a photo day and three rehearsals prior the show. We do two – three shows which if you commit, your child will be expected to attend.

Am I allowed to come in and watch my child’s class?

We do not have open classes. Much the same as school. However we do have designated watching weeks for all the family to enjoy. Dance studio space is important for the children to move, learn and express themselves, which is not always possible if there is an audience present.

Can I take photos of my child at watching week?

Unfortunately, we cannot permit photographs to be taken in class. This is a privacy issue and does not comply with child protection laws.

Can my child have private lessons?

Private classes are available upon request and depending on teacher and studio availability. The more serious dance students usually take up these options. Students who use these classes normally compete in eisteddfods or use the class to brush up on exam techniques.
