What are your Covid19 Safe policies

At Peninsula School of Dance we take very seriously the position and role we play for young people in our community. We are committed to maintaining best practices in relation to hygiene standards and will always strive to make our environment safe, supportive, nurturing and joyous for our students. 

Resuming our operations means that we will need to run a little differently to how we have in the past. These measures are in line with current government guidelines and will be regularly reviewed and updated as necessary. 

Our Covid19 Safe Policies and procedures have been developed using Work Safe and Ausdance best practice guidelines.

All our Policies and Procedures can be viewed here

How much will the fees be if I do sign up?

Please refer to the fee schedule here for full details. Rates are based on the amount of time your child spends with us each week, for example:

  • 30 minutes per week – $18
  • 45 minutes per week – $20
  • 1hr per week – $22
Do I need to invest in a uniform? What to wear to the first class?

There is no need to invest in uniform at this stage. Children should wear leggings or shorts with a t-shirt, socks and runners. Dancewear can be purchased from our studios. More details are attached and available on our website.

Can parents watch the first class?

We welcome all parents to watch the first class. In line with our Covid19 Safe procedures you will be required to sign in and out of the building.

We believe parents/guardians have to be 100% happy and comfortable with how we teach and interact with our students before deciding whether or not we are the right school for them. 

Sometimes the process can take a little longer to settle in pre-school children, we understand this completely and you will not be rushed out of the room! Once your child is happily settled we do ask that parents leave the room to allow for the smooth running of our classes. 

Parents of children in Petite Stars (toddler class) are required to stay and actively support their little dancer in class.

If you are in the room with your child in any class, we kindly ask that you remain quiet and do not answer phone calls. Keeping the attention and focus of our students is our main priority.
