  2. In order to provide adequate dance training, it is necessary for dance teachers to physically coach in the development of student technique and placement, which may require strictly appropriate physical contact between dance teaching staff and students. It is also understood that any sort of development cannot occur without a formal and structured approach to all dance classes administered at Infinite Dance Studios. Dance is a form of discipline and this will be advocated throughout all dance classes at Infinite Dance Studios.
  3. It is understood that an annual, non-refundable enrolment fee applies to all students at the commencement of their enrolment date. $25 for ALL students.

  8. If there are any outstanding fees or administration fees from the following term, your child will not be allowed to participate in their classes until the account has been finalized. In Term 4 all accounts must be finalized by Tech rehearsal. Failure to do so will mean your child will not be able to perform in the end of year show. No refunds on any fees or tickets will be applied.
