Information & Policies

  • KR Dance Studio must be informed of any medical problems your child may have. We wish to ensure that our teachers be fully informed in case of an emergency. Knowledge of issues which may affect your child’s learning will also enable us to provide a higher level of tuition to meet the individual needs of each of our students.
  • We have a studio uniform available to purchase through the school. It is compulsory to wear the correct uniform and dance shoes to class.
  • Parents and friends are not allowed into classes while they are in progress unless invited.
  • Being on time for class is very important. All students must be ready to dance at least five minutes before the start of class. Late students miss work they have paid for and interrupt other students in the class.
  • All students must attend classes with the correct grooming. This means hair tied back off the face. For ballet, hair must be up in a bun and off the neck line. Older students coming to class without the correct grooming will be asked to fix their hair before commencing the class. Younger students will need to be groomed by their parent before class.
  • Parents are responsible for their child outside of their class time. KR Dance Studio cannot take responsibility of children once they leave the class. Please drop off/pick up your child on time.
  • For grooming and safety reasons jewellery cannot be worn to class. Sleepers and studs are OK.
  • The waiting room is an area where parents are invited to stay and wait for their child if necessary. This area is a quiet area and must be treated as such. Students in this area must be quiet so that the class before is not disturbed. Please refrain from leaving this area untidy. Students are not to use our flyers, timetables, fee lists etc.… to draw on.
  • KR Dance Studio requests that students do not bring any valuables such as iPods, phones, jewellery, money etc.…to class. KR Dance Studio will not take any responsibility for property that is lost or stolen.
  • New enrolments will have their accounts mailed out within one week of enrolment.
  • Students cannot be enrolled at or participating in classes at a second dance school whilst training at KR Dance.
  • KR Dance Studio needs at least one of either a mobile phone number and/or email address to correspond with families. This is not only for us to get information to you but also to contact you quickly if an emergency arises. Sometimes we have to contact every family in the school and we do this by sending bulk emails or bulk SMS messages. If your information changes and we are not informed or if you cannot provide an email address or mobile phone number, you are missing out on important information and announcements that may arise. We will not individually call families that do not provide at least one of these two means of contact. If you do not have a mobile phone or email address maybe a close relative/friend/neighbour can provide theirs for emergency contact purposes.
  • It is important that all students are suitably enrolled in classes for their age and/or ability. It is extremely important to the proper development and safety of the student. The final placement of the student is at the discretion of the Principal.
  • It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to be aware of all studio activities, such as rehearsals, performances, extra classes, and dates the studio is open or closed. We post notices via email, inside the studio on the notice board, as well as sending home notes with the students. It is the parent’s responsibility to check with the studio or your child to ensure you are receiving all notices.  It is also the parent’s responsibility to inform KR Dance Studio of any address, telephone, or email changes.
  • An annual registration fee of $25 per student ($20 for second student if sibling) is added to your first invoice to cover overheads, insurance, administration and mailing costs.
  • Fees are to be paid in full before the end of a term. Under no circumstances are fees allowed to be rolled over into the next term. If fees are not paid by the end of the term all classes for your child will be suspended and your account will have to be settled before commencing the next term.
  • If families continually pay their fees late, advanced term payments will be enforced. This requires the students whole term fees being paid upfront before any classes can commence. This will be at the discretion of the principal.
  • Fees may be paid by cash, cheque or electronic transfer. Cheques should be made out to ‘Kerrie Renee Dance Studio’. Cash or cheques should be placed in an envelope with your child’s name marked on the front. This envelope should be given to either Miss Kerrie or posted to PO Box 398, Wingham, 2429, NSW. Details for paying by electronic funds transfer are provided on your term invoice.
  • Any families that leave the school owing fees, and make no attempt to pay them will have their accounts forwarded to a debt collection agent who will recover the fees on our behalf.
  • If a family is passed on to a debt collection agent, an additional 50% of the unpaid fees will be added onto the debt for recovery costs.
  • Please do not interrupt classes with fee enquiries. Please make fee enquiries by seeing Miss Kerrie outside of class time or by emailing kerrie@krdance.com.au
  • The costs of running the school continue regardless of how many students attend classes. Fees are calculated on a termly cost and therefore there can be no refunds for any classes not attended by a student during that term. If a class is cancelled by KR Dance Studio, a replacement class will be offered. If for any reason a cancelled class cannot be replaced by KR Dance Studio, a refund on the following terms fees will be applied.
  • Private lessons must be paid for on the day of the private lesson directly to the teacher or paid along with your term fees. You must tell us if you prefer to pay for private lessons weekly or by the term. All missed private lessons without at least one day’s notice must be paid for.
  • Students wishing to participate in performance classes must be enrolled in two ballet classes per week for technical purposes.
  • A student’s inclusion in performance groups are at the sole discretion of the principle.
  • All music for solo student’s routines will be available for download from our website once edited and cut. When a new song has been edited and uploaded, an email will be sent informing you that the song is ready for download. You can then download the song for you to burn onto CD or USB (depending on the competition you enter)..
  • Students wishing to enrol in private lessons are expected to keep their routine for at least 18 months. Any new routines are at the sole discretion of the principle.
  • KR Dance Studio offer examinations in BBO ballet and Glenn Wood tap. If you would like more information about ballet or tap exams, please see Miss Kerrie.
  • It is at the discretion of the principle to decide whether a student is ready for exams. Parents wishing their children to do their exams will be advised if their child is not ready. Some students may require extra lessons.
  • Concerns or grievances should be addressed to us via phone or email. We cannot address issues that are not brought to our attention. Teachers cannot address any concerns during class times.
  • KR Dance Studio provides a friendly, safe and non-discriminatory place for all students, parents and teachers. We have a zero tolerance of bullying or intimidating behaviour involving parents or students. Bullying behaviour, intimidation of other students, parents or teachers will not be tolerated. Any such behaviour may jeopardize your child’s enrolment at KR Dance Studio.
  • Throughout the year, KR Dance Studio will use photo and video footage of the students in advertising and on our website and Facebook pages. If you do not wish your child to be included in any such promotional work, then please let us know.
  • All Choreography for Eisteddfod’s, performances and concerts remains the exclusive property of KR Dance Studio. Permission by KR Dance Studio is required for any public use of footage, choreography or routines.
