DX Information

Here at Dancexclusive our aim is to provide many aspects of performing arts to a wide variety of age groups in Craigieburn. We encourage physical fitness, teamwork, participation and above all, enjoyment. Classes offered at Dancexclusive include, Jazz, Hip Hop (boys and girls), Ballet (A.T.O.D), Tap, Lyrical and Acrobatics. Performing is an excellent way to build self-confidence, self-esteem and a sense of achievement. We hope you enjoy your time with us and find it a beneficial and rewarding experience.

 

Our classes are held at Mt Ridley College in Essex Way Craigieburn 3064. We hold classes on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings and Saturdays. The Dancexclusive Directors meet in January to discuss class placement and new student enrolments. We only have one intake per year.

​Class Policies

  • Students are requested to be punctual, quiet and attentive in all classes to cause minimum disruption. No mobile phones are to be turned on or touched during classes. No chewing gum is allowed. Please provide your child with a drink bottle of water to bring to class.

  • Can the parents of petite and sub junior age groups please ensure their child has been to the toilet (located in the gymnasium) just prior to coming into class as this will avoid disruption to classes and provide quality time for their lesson.

  • No parents (or friends) are allowed in classes except on specially designated days, which will be notified in newsletters.

  • For safety reason we request that no student under 18yrs wait for their parent/guardian outside of the school grounds. Please escort students to the door at the commencement of class and pick them up from our reception at the completion of class. 

  • Students are to be dropped to dancing five minutes before their class. If a student has an hour break in-between classes they are welcome to stay on the premises for this while waiting. If a student has finished their class/classes for the day, they must be collected. They cannot stay and watch their siblings/friends. Please be mindful of this for car pooling purposes.

An additional $8.00 Administration/Dance and Performing Arts insurance fee is payable per student annually and is added to the Term 1 account.

 

Production Levy

There is a $25.00 production levy per family for the annual end of year performance. This levy contributes to the many rising costs associated with the theatre and show production and is separate from class fees/costume/ticket prices. The production levy will be charged with the Term 3 account.

If a student withdraws from the school during the term he/she is still liable for payment of the full fees for the term regardless of how many classes have been attended.

 

*No student will be allowed to participate in Dancexclusive concerts if any fees are outstanding*
