GOT ANY QUESTIONS?
We’ve answered most of the common questions below – but if you feel we’ve missed something or you want to enquire further, please contact us!
Do all students have to study ballet?
Yes, we require all students to study classical ballet.
At DBS, we are passionate about ballet. From tiny tots to teens, ballet is the foundation for all dance – not only technically, but in helping young dancers to grow and express themselves artistically.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Dance classes are an investment in a child’s artistry, self confidence and self expression. We value the commitment families make to their children’s dance education, and endeavour to see this investment fulfilled.
Our fees are charged by the term and are dependant on the age of the student and the number of classes enrolled in. Our fees are structured on a sliding scale, meaning the more you do the cheaper your classes become!
We also offer discounts for early payment and multiple students from the one family.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us to find out more about your fee schedule.
ARE PARENTS ALLOWED TO WATCH CLASSES?
We find students shine better without the pressure of an audience, so, unfortunately, we don’t permit parents into our regular classes. We do however, run open classes often, and welcome family and friends to come and enjoy our student’s achievements!
HOW OLD DO YOU HAVE TO BE?
We welcome all girls and boys from 3-18yrs.
DO YOU RUN ADULT CLASSES?
No, unfortunately we don’t run any adult classes.
HOW MUCH COMMITMENT IS REQUIRED?
At DBS we encourage students to have a healthy sense of commitment. We believe this is a fundamental life skill instilled in children by studying dance. We encourage students to attend their classes regularly and firmly believe that this consistency is essential in developing confident, accomplished young dancers.
WHAT CLASSES ARE ON OFFER?
The key to an enriching dance education is variety. It is our experience that students thrive by being exposed to all facets of the dance industry. That’s why we’ve spent many years developing one of the state’s the most diverse dance programs. From the traditional dance styles such as R.A.D. classical ballet, jazz, tap and contemporary right through to cutting edge urban dance and cultural studies, we have it covered! Contact us for a detailed class plan for your age group!
