EXAMINATIONS/COMPETITIONS

The Royal Academy of Dancing holds an examination session yearly for all ballet students, if suitable.  Students must attend two Ballet classes per week to be considered to sit for their RAD examination (Primary Level & upwards).  Eisteddfods Groups and solo work also available.

 

GENERAL

Classes run according to the school term to allow for school holidays.  All classes are held on public holidays unless otherwise advised.  Fees are payable on the first day of class each term. Arrangements can be made for special circumstances - please see your Miss Kimberley personally.

 

OPEN DAY

To ensure the students’ full attention, and to enable the children to focus during class, parents are asked to wait outside during class. All parents are invited to attend Open Day in the studio to view class.   Open Day is usually held on the last day of terms 1,2 and 4. 

 

OUR MISSION STATEMENT

Kimberley Woodger Dance Academy will provide an opportunity for every student to experience joy, creativity and artistic freedom in dance by facilitating the achievement of a secure technical foundation in a warm and caring environment.

 

CATCH UP CLASSES FOR MISSED CLASSES & POLICY

1.  Proficiency in class is largely dependent on regular and consistent participation. It is strongly recommended that children attend all classes in the session. Absenteeism interrupts the technical progression of the child in the class and disrupts the continuity of the class for other students.

2.  It is the parent’s/dancer’s responsibility to notify the teacher(via email: woodgerdance@optusnet.com.au) of absences and make arrangements in advance for any potential make-up classes. Make-up classes for absences due to illness or other circumstances will be allowed as class size and teacher schedule will permit. Make-up classes will NOT be scheduled during observation weeks, costume weeks, or weeks being utilized for choreography instruction.

3.  NO REFUNDS OR DISCOUNTS WILL BE GIVEN FOR MISSED CLASSES!   

Fees and performance fees are non-refundable.

  • Non-attendance does not constitute withdrawal. We require two weeks advanced written notice if you or your child wishes to withdraw from our program.

  • We do not refund absences. No refunds/credits are given to for dancers missing classes, missed classes due to vacation, holidays and/or days off from school.

4.  Make-up Lessons: Proficiency in class is largely dependent on regular and consistent participation. Therefore, it is recommended that students make up classes whenever possible. All make-up classes must be made up within the current term session.

5.  Fees.  Fess are payable on the first day of term, each term.  Discounts apply for multiple classes per child. 

For new students starting after the term has commenced, fees are calculated pro rata from your child's first class start date.

Fees are refundable for Mummy & Me, Creative Movement classes only, however 2 weeks notice is required.

6.  Trial Classes are offered.  However you will be invoiced from your first class, if you decide to continue with that class. 

7.  Fees are charged per term.  Length of the term may differ from term to term however, our fees will remain the same for each term.
