2017 Term and Conditions
Enrolment must be signed prior to any child being insured at the studio, no siblings or friends may join in unless this is done due to stringent insurance laws.
It is understood and agreed that all students take classes at their own risk and no liability under any circumstances shall be undertaken by the proprietors for injury or loss of personal effects or clothing.
When signing this enrolment form you agree to keep fees payable, up to date and enrolments are accepted on the agreement that they are for the full calendar year (rolled over between terms). Students may opt out between terms if a minimum of one week’s written notice is provided prior to the term commencing. Failure to do so will result in the student being liable for the following terms fees.
Mid-term withdrawals still incur the full term fee.
Term fees and performance packs are non-refundable and must be paid in full within 14 days of your invoice date.
Discounted fees are not provided for public holidays, extended holidays or missed classes unless granted under special circumstances by Stepnout.
No pupil will be allowed to dance unless all fees have been paid and are up to date from the previous year and the studio reserves the right to refuse entry to students with outstanding balances.
In the event of a medical emergency, and where a parent cannot be contacted, I authorize Stepnout to seek medical advice for my child at a hospital.
All rehearsals must be attended by pupils and helpers or they will be unable to perform in concerts and performances when required.
Dress code must be observed at all times, otherwise they will be asked to sit and watch class.
Parents and siblings are not permitted in any senior school dance class unless prior arrangement has been made with the teacher.
Junior school toddlers not included as it’s a parent participation class. Kinder and Fairies is at teachers discretion.
Children (including siblings of students) must be accompanied by an adult whilst at the studio and in carpark.
There will be no alcohol at the studio or performances.
There will be no chewing gum or food allowed in studio’s unless your child is doing a double class and needs a snack. (Please ensure this is a positive healthy option and not full of sugar)
Any costumes misplaced or damaged will incur a fee.
No cameras or videos allowed unless consent from the teacher and other parents is given in class.
The studio has CCT video footage for parents to view children in each studio. There is also a camera in waiting room to view play area and carpark in case of incidents. This footage is only used at the studio and not for public viewing outside those areas. Video of footage needed if an incident occurs will be kept for legal reasons by the studio.
I acknowledge and give the studio permission that the students on the enrolment form submitted may be filmed in class for practice, filmed at performances/workshops and rehearsals. I agree that images may be used for promotional material including official web site and facebook for Stepnout and advertising material such as brochures/Flyers.
Sometimes the Dances will be put onto You Tube for parents to view and especially for children to practice. They are private listings and cannot be searched and found on you tube without the link we give you.
I agree to update the studio in writing or by email to confirm any changes in contact details to ensure if needed you can be contacted at all times for your child in case of emergency. All invoice and notices get emailed so please don’t forget to update this also or advise the studio if you don’t have one to ensure you don’t miss any information.
While every effort will be made to ensure a consistent timetable occasionally classes may need to be cancelled or rescheduled.
Limited parking is available. You can always park on the street and walk into the factory block. Please just be mindful of our neighbors as they need their carparks for their clients also. Please under no circumstances block the driveway or sit near roller door to do a quick drop off.
Due to the privacy act there will be no talking about anyone's child during class or at any other time. This is an extremely important issue and if not adhered to the person will be asked to leave the studio.
If you have a problem the staff are only too happy to help and sort it out so please under no circumstances gripe about it in the waiting room or behind our backs we are approachable and would love to hear your concerns if you have them.
