Terms of Enrolment / Policy & Procedure


May 29, 2024 04:22 AM



I understand that there is an annual Registration Fee that is payable upon enrolment. Enrolment cannot be finalised until payment has been made.

I understand that fees are payable termly in advance (in accordance with Saint Stephen’s College (SSC) and Coomera Anglican College (CAC) term dates.

I understand that payment may be made to Dare 2 Dance (D2D) by way of the D2D app, cash, bank transfer or use of Eftpos facilities at the dance studio. Merchant Fees will be applied to payments made via Eftpos (surcharge applies) and the D2D app (surcharge applies).

I understand that a late payment fee of $50.00 will be incurred for fees that are still outstanding after Week 3 of any given school term. I also understand that fees that remain unpaid at the end of Week 7 will attract a late fee of $100.00.

I understand that if fees remain outstanding for a whole term, my child will not be allowed to attend classes the following term until they have been paid in full.

I understand that there are no credits or refunds for missed classes; however, students are welcome to ‘make-up’ the lesson with a comparable class. It is the parent’s duty to email D2D to advise which class they would like their child to attend as a make-up lesson.

I understand that the D2D staff are to be informed via the D2D app if my child is not attending their dance lesson that day.

I understand that written notice must be given to D2D prior to the commencement of a term if my child wishes to cease dance tuition, otherwise I will be liable for the full terms fee.

I understand that there is an annual dance concert held in November and that every student performs in both a matinee and evening performance. I understand that my child’s involvement in the annual dance concert requires me to purchase costumes, hair piece, accessories and tickets outside of the term fees.

I understand that if I choose for my child to be involved in examinations, eisteddfods, or competitions there will be a cost for performance troupe lessons, competition entry fees and costumes.

I understand that all dancers must be correctly and neatly dressed and groomed for all lessons (as per the Uniform Requirement Sheet).

I understand that all choreography and dance sequences remain the intellectual property of D2D and cannot be used outside of the studio without written permission from D2D.

I understand that D2D has the right to discontinue enrolment at its discretion.

I understand that D2D is committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for our teachers, students, parents/guardians and visitors. In the case of injury, I will be contacted. In the event of a medical emergency an ambulance will be called, and I will be notified immediately.

I hereby agree to the above terms of enrolment as set out by D2D and consent to the following points:

1. I am the parent/legal guardian and I hereby consent to Dare 2 Dance using photography/videography of my child for publicity purposes. This may include but is not limited to posters/publications as well as Dare 2 Dance’s website, Facebook and Instagram page unless you have selected the 'opt out' option on the D2D App by: Parent Portal > More > Waiver and Release > Photo Opt-Out

2. I acknowledge that all students at Dare 2 Dance partake in dance classes at their own risk. I hereby release, discharge and indemnify Dare 2 Dance and its employees, staff, representatives and agents from all and any liability, loss and damage arising from or in connection with the provision of dance classes and the monitoring of students prior to and after dance classes.

3. I have read and understood Dare 2 Dance’s Policy and Procedure document received in the info pack (SSC ONLY). Please contact admin@dare2dance.com.au if you need a copy of this document.
