Fee Structure Based on 10 week term
All fees are invoiced two weeks prior to each new term commencing. Enrolment with Dance Desires will only be accepted on the condition that your term fees have been paid in full, in accordance with the due date on the invoice.
If you have problems paying your fees please call Janine Bentley-Minns to ask for an extension or to arrange a payment plan.
Online Payment: Please note when making an online payment, the child's FULL NAME and INVOICE CODE (which can be located at the top of the invoice) must be entered with payment. The account details are as follows:
Account Name: Dance Desires BSB: 013 352
Account Number: 220 394 806
Students commencing after a term has started will be charged pro rata for the weeks attended.
Private tuition is charged at $80 per hour.
Soloists will be charged a once off costume hire of $35 per costume, which will be added to your term one invoice.
Families wishing to pay their term fees in installments need to arrange this by contacting Miss Alanna by email.
To avoid a lump sum payment at the end of the year, Dance Desires divides the cost of the costume hire over Term 3 and 4 fees. The cost varies depending on how many items your child performs in and the style of costume. Costs are kept to a minimum as the costumes are hired.
An annual once off fee of $40 will be added to your term one invoice to cover the cost of the process of enrolment and administration staff. This also include insurance for any accidental injury.
All Performance Group students will be charged a once off fee of $150, which will be added to your term two invoice. This levy will cover the cost of entry for Troupes into 3 competitions, individual performer fee, costume hire for all performances, audience entry to view the performances and staffing at all competition events. For our U6 Troupe and Open Age Troupe who will be competing at just 2 competitions this year, the fee will be $125.
Dance Desires does not issue refunds for missed classes as you are holding a position in the class, however, you are encouraged to participate in a make-up class. All classes missed may be made up in another class of any style. Please check with Miss Alanna as to which class would be most appropriate. Classes must be made up within the term they are missed. They cannot be carried over into the next term. Consideration will be given to special circumstances.
If you choose to cease classes mid term, we do not offer a refund for any missed classes in that term.
