QUESTION – IS THERE A UNIFORM?
Ballet, Tap and Jazz classes: Female dance students wear a black sleeveless leotard and dance skirt, ballet pink tights (not flesh coloured) or white ankle socks in summer (tights are available to purchase from me). Pink ballet shoes and tan or black tap shoes. Tiny Tots and Pre-School classes the students have the choice of wearing either black or pink leotards and skirts. Long hair should worn in a bun or tied back neatly. Male dance students wear black leggings and dance tshirt with black socks, black ballet shoes and black tap shoes.
Musical Theatre Students wear black leggings or dance shorts, DJTD dance tshirt (available to purchase from me) and black canvas lace up shoes.
Zumba Kids wear dance shorts or leggings, tshirt and sneakers. DJTD dance tshirts are available to purchase from me.
QUESTION – CAN I DO A TRIAL CLASS?
Yes you can try the class before committing. It is important to find a class that suits your child and their needs. Come along and try the class before you decide to join us. For the trial class wear something comfortable that is easy to move around in. For ballet, tap and jazz classes ideally bring along a hard soled shoe for tap and soft shoes or bare feet (no socks – too slippy) for ballet.
QUESTION – DO PARENTS WATCH CLASSES?
Parents generally stay for the Tiny Tots classes as the children are very young. Parents are also encouraged to join in with their little one for support in this class. For Pre-School classes parents have the choice as to whether they stay or go. Some parents use this to help with the transition to school/kindy. In all other classes parents drop and go. We usually have a watching week in terms 1, 2 and 3 (older students prefer not to have parents watching the class) – feel free to contact me at any time if you would like to know more about your child’s progress.
