Whittlesea Dance & Performing Arts
Registration & Enrolment
At the beginning of each year we have a $50 registration fee which includes insurance, music licenses & a studio t-shirt or singlet, plus a Christmas Party. This is due payable within the first 2 weeks of Term 1.
Teaching & Facilities
All of our teachers are fully qualified & registered to individual associations. All have the Working With Children Check, and all come from a Professional background. We believe that every child is special & unique, and will strive to encourage & develop life long values.
The studios have sprung flooring, and full length mirrors. There is a separate waiting area for parents & children, and plenty of parking.
What to wear
All students must be appropriately attired for each class, which includes leotards, tights, shorts, leggings, dance pants, and correct footwear. Hair is to be pulled away from the face, preferably in a bun. For safety reasons, jewellery should not be worn in class ( except small earrings ). Please ensure all clothing is clearly labelled.

As concert time is generally the busiest time of the year, we aim to alleviate the stress & worry about making costumes. We have an extensive costume hire range. Costumes will range from $20.00 to $45.00 for each class your child participates in. The option to purchase is also available for the parents that wish to keep them.
The venue & date is yet to be confirmed. All children will be required for full running rehearsals, dress rehearsals / photo day & the actual Concert. All children receive a Participation Trophy at the Presentation.
