At the end of each year we hold an annual concert showcase. Every dancer from the studio is invited to participate in this magical day . Our concert will run between 1-2 hours.  Our concert tickets are reasonably priced.

What if we pay by the term and our dancer doesn’t wish to continue?

At Princess Ballet Company, we’re not happy if you’re not happy. We want your dancer to love their dancing as much as we do. We understand that often parents are hesitant to pay by the term in case their child finds out that they’d rather play netball, than do ballet.

We offer you this:

If your dancer is genuinely not happy at Princess Ballet Company, we are more than happy to refund the balance of your term fees, less our $20 administration charge.

Do you offer exams?

At Princess Ballet Company, we teach our beautiful, age appropriate Princess Curriculum which is a certificate based program. During term 1 and 2 our dancers progress through our curriculum learning essential dance skills and techniques. At the end of term 2, we offer all dancers the opportunity to attend ‘Graduation Day’ where they come along and present the skills they have learnt to our teachers. Dancers are then presented with a completion certificate at our mid-year presentation day.

This is about encouraging self-confidence in each dancer as well as giving each dancer a goal to strive towards. It is about celebrating accomplishment and effort and not about grading and stress.

Capitalizing on children’s naturally occurring cognitive and neural development, our Princess Curriculum provides our dancers with the tools, skills and knowledge to become confident, accomplished dancers. In appreciating and utlitising our students natural development, our Princess Curriculum builds more confident, beautiful dancers.

We have exams options for all Tap Dancers. Dancers can choose to sit for L.G.T.D.A. Tap exams, which are usually held in the mid year. This is completely optional. If you decide you would like your dancer to participate in exams, they will need to attend the exam preparation class for their grade.

What about concert costumes?

cost-questAt Princess Ballet Company we have a dedicated Concert Costume Co-ordinator who personally looks after the costuming needs for your dancer. For our concert we purchase costumes and accessories to help make things simple for our parents and to keep costs down. Usually our dressmakers and costume co-ordinator take measurements or have fittings at the studio. Parents know in advance how many dances their child will be performing in the concert to help plan for costs. Our concert costume costs are amongst the lowest in the region.

Can parents watch classes?

Absolutely!!!! We love parents to be involved with our studio!!! Won’t find this at any other dance studio. Have a look at our Parents watching page for more information.

Can a potential student watch a class before enrolling?

There’s nothing like getting up and dancing! At Princess Ballet Company we invite our potential new dancers to come along and actually join in a class. Once a new child is moving and shaking with the others dancers, they get a much better idea of what the class feels like and what it’s like to be part of. Call us to see what classes your dancer can try out!

Does every child receive a trophy?

troph-questPrincess Ballet Company believes that all dancers who participate in our concert deserve to be recognised for their effort, dedication and enthusiasm. All concert dancers receive a trophy to celebrate their achievement. Trophy presentation occurs at dress rehearsal so all dancers can have a photo in their costume with their new trophy.
