The Free trial class is to give your child the opportunity to trial the class. There is no commitment to continue if for any reason you choose not to.
After the free trial we do require a commitment for the term. Our class size is limited and we need to know who is coming each week so we do not offer casual classes.
We automatically re-enrol our students each term and send an invoice which is due to be paid in full in advance of the term. We appreciate the courtesy of a phone call or email if your child is not continuing in the class.
Our weekly classes are $20 paid by the term. The amount varies depending on the length of the term.
We offer a sibling discount of $1 per student per class.
Most children are in their school uniforms as the classes are generally after school.
It is advisable for girls to wear shorts under dresses to allow them to feel comfortable in movement activities.
Yes, we have boys in our classes.
Our class size maximum is generally 15 children. Many of our classes are smaller than this.
We have a range of experience and abilities in the classes and it is not a pre-requisite to have any experience.
Our classes are for primary aged children, the minimum age is 5 years old.
We offer new students a free trial class and with kinder children it is an opportunity for the teacher to evaluate whether they are ready for the class. The dynamics of each class vary depending on the other children’s ages as well. If there are a lot of older children we may recommend waiting.
Yes. Our classes are great for shy children to grow and develop in confidence.
We have had many success stories of very shy children who have benefitted greatly from our program.
We ask parents not to watch the class as it can inhibit their child and others. It also causes a distraction especially if multiple parents come and then talk and bring toddlers etc. We have Open Days twice a year for the junior class when parents are invited to come. With the intermediate and seniors we hold our end of year shows in the theatre especially for parents to watch.
Participating in drama develops many important life skills. Working as part of a team children are taught to listen to each other, creatively extend other people’s ideas and come up with solutions to problems. Communication skills and creativity as well as confidence building are all part of the experience. Most importantly it is an hour of FUN, which is a healthy thing to do!!!
In the very rare event that a child doesn’t enjoy the program and does not want to participate we will refund the fees. We are very confident that your child will enjoy their time with us!
We expect a high standard of behaviour in the drama class. We discuss in class how drama is a team sport. If any child is continually disruptive they will be given a warning and after three warnings will be asked to sit out of the activity. If the behaviour continues they will be asked to leave. We care that the drama class is a safe and happy place for all of our students and we are not interested in having anyone spoil this.
We understand that there are times when traffic is bad or there are delays however our teachers also have commitments and it is not fair to keep them waiting. The teacher has the right to charge $1 per minute after the class if you keep them waiting. We will not leave the child on their own.
If a school after school facility is nearby the teacher may escort the child there.
