Missed Classes 

If you want to be a fabulous cheerleader or dancer you need to come to all your classes. There are no refunds for missed classes.  Sometimes it is unavoidable to miss a class or two and if you do and there is space an alternate class within the same Term we’re happy for you to do a make-up class.

Uniforms

Please see the uniform page for pictures of all the Signature Cheer & Dance Studio uniform pieces.  Wearing your Signature Cheer & Dance Studio makes you part of the team.  Feel like a dancer, stand taller and be part of the family.  Available for purchase from the Signature Cheer & Dance Studio office.

Private Lessons

Private lessons are available for technique development, final exam preparation and competition solos.  Generally lessons are 30 minutes long and there are times available straight after school, before our regular lessons begin.  Lessons need to be booked and paid in advance. Price is $35 per 30 minute lesson.

Exams

Students at Signature Cheer & Dance enter ATOD (Australian Teachers of Dancing) exams.  The ATOD examiners and their reports are very encouraging and positive.  The exam fees are reasonable, which means many of our students take multiple exams every year.

Exams are optional for Levels 1, 2 & 3 Ballet, Jazz & Tap.  And are compulsory to progress to the next level from Bronze Medal upwards in Ballet, Jazz & Tap and compulsory for all contemporary levels.  Students spend a maximum of two years in each level.

As much as I would like children to work to the best of their ability in each class, just because it is the right thing to do, they need a goal and working towards an exam can give them one.  Assessments are also available for the pre-school classes – to date, we have not entered these.

 Photography & Copyright

When enrolling my child at Signature Cheer & Dance Studio I understand and agree that my child may be photographed or filmed during a Signature Cheer & Dance Studio class,  rehearsal, eisteddfod, competition  or Signature Cheer & Dance Studio performance by Signature Cheer & Dance Studio staff or their agents.  And that my child’s image may be used in advertising material, print media or on the Signature Cheer & Dance Studio website, facebook page, private facebook group or instagram account.  No names will be used without further permission.

I also agree that my child may be photographed or filmed whilst in a Signature Cheer & Dance Studio class during observation weeks, by parents or relatives of other children in the class.  I also agree I will not post photos or video footage taken by me or any family members during Signature Cheer & Dance Studio observation week classes on Facebook, Youtube or other social media.

If taking photographs of children at Signature Cheer & Dance Studio (or anywhere else for that matter) you are required to have written permission from their parents.  This agreement only covers classes during the observation weeks, it does not allow you to take photographs of other peoples children at Signature Cheer & Dance Studio at any other time.

In order to play a variety of music for dance classes we are required to pay music royalties to several different organisations.  We are not permitted to make recordings of the set syllabus music, please do not ask us to.  We can however, order a practice cd of the original music for Ballet, /jazz, Tap or Contemporary

Working with children check & Child Protection

Signature Cheer & Dance Studio staff hold Working with children cards for Working with Children.  A copy of our Risk Management Strategy for Child Protection is available in our admin for any interested parents.  

 Money Back Guarantee 

We’re no longer doing trial classes or casual enrolment.  We want students to commit and come to their dance/cheer classes on a regular basis.  If this is your very first Term at Signature Cheer & Dance Studio I will offer you a 30 day money back guarantee.  

So if 30 days from your first class you don’t want to come any more we will refund your Term Fees (excluding classes attended)……all I ask is that you attend at least 3 classes.

A Few Requests

If your child is unwell or you cannot make it to class for some other reason, please call or text 0417751868.

Please collect your child within 5 minutes of their class finishing.  There is no-one available look out for children outside of their class hours.  All children are instructed to wait for their parents inside the building, so please don’t ask them to meet you outside.  They’re precious, lets look after them.

Watching Classes Parents and friends are not able to watch regular classes (exception Kinderballet mummy and me and TwinkleStars twinkle babies) or rehearsals in the studio as it is usually distracting for the students and the teacher. There will be an observation week at the end of Terms One, and Term Three (excludes competition teams).

The Parent handbook is your guide to all things Signature Cheer & Dance almost all the answers to your questions can be found in this guide which is updated regularly. Please find the Parent handbooks and other important forms here
