Hopefully you have read all about our teaching philosophy. The following sections have been developed to enable existing and prospective students and their families to have a greater understanding of the important aspects that contribute to a happy environment for all at Dance West.
Pre Registration 2019
Class Fees – RAD Ballet/NZAMD Contemporary
It has always been my intention that class fees are kept to a minimum. The reason for this is to ensure that all children no matter their background have an opportunity to attend ballet lessons. The fees are reviewed annually and are available at enrollment day held in January/February each year.
The fee structure is based on the actual times of each class. It would be appreciated if fees are paid within the first three weeks of each term. This can either be as cash, cheque or internet banking. If you wish to pay fees in installments this can also be arranged. A late penalty of 10% will now be added to those who have not paid within this first three weeks.
There is a 10% discount for two or more siblings attending Dance West.
There is also a discount for current students who refer a friend who then joins Dance West. This applies to one friend per year.
