Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT CLASSES DO YOU OFFER?
At Action Dance Academy we pride our self on being able to offer a wide range of dance classes to suit each age group. Classes are grouped by school year so that students can dance with their peers. Whether your child is wanting to dance for fun with their friends or extend their passion and skill level, we offer class levels from recreational to advance across all styles and age groups.
We endeavour to provide you with the right class, even if it takes a few trial classes to find it. Students should feel challenged but not overwhelmed by their class choice.
Please feel free to contact the office if you feel you have enrolled in the wrong program. Remember we want the best for you and are always available to help guide you.
DANCE STYLES AVAILABLE:
WHAT TO EXPECT AT MY FIRST LESSON?
You can expect a nice warm welcome from our teachers. Students will be greeted by the class teacher and introduced to the class during roll call. We want every student to feel comfortable and relaxed at their first lesson and make sure new students are encouraged and nurtured into their first dance lesson. Your child’s enjoyment is our priority.
You don’t need a uniform to trial our classes. We suggest you wear comfortable clothes you are happy to dance in. Our office can advise you of the types of dance wear that students wear depending on the age group and dance style.
We do have a range of uniform options available on our website and once you are ready to enrol we do suggest purchasing the correct uniform. We are very happy to assist you should you have any questions.
CAN I WATCH MY CHILD IN CLASS?
We do not usually allow non-participating people in the rooms while classes are on as it is distracting for the students and sometimes a little intimidating when learning new skills. We find students learn best when there is just the teacher and students in the classroom. We welcome parents to either wait in the foyer or drop off and pick up from our venues.
Parent Open Week is held in Term 2 and provides a special opportunity for parents to come and observe their child’s normal class lesson.
HOW WILL I KEEP INFORMED ABOUT WHAT’S HAPPENING?
When you enrol at Action Dance you will receive access to our customer portal. Via this portal you can view classes, update family details and see latest newsletters. Our newsletters and invoices are also emailed out once a term. We have a calendar on our website which lists upcoming events, concert dates, workshops, exams & community initiatives.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I MISS A CLASS?
Missing a class happens as life happens to us. Credits for missed classes are only given due to serious injury or illness with medical certificate provided or extended overseas holiday.
You are always welcome to make up a missed class in another equivalent age/level class. It is quite fun to join another teacher and classmates for a day! Please contact the office to book a make-up lesson so we can advise the teacher and let you know what the best class option is.
