General Terms and Conditions

  • All fees are non-refundable and non-transferable to a sibling or other child.
  • We do not accept cash for any payments.
  • All customers are required to have a payment method (direct debit or card) on file for term fee payments.
  • Where fees are not paid by your child’s first lesson of the term we reserve the right to charge a late fee of $30.
  • If you wish to withdraw your child after the due date specified by us or after already being charged for the following term due to change of mind you will incur a $30 administration fee per child.
  • Children must wear dance items to class, as specified by our dress code.
  • If a class is missed due to illness, injury or exceptional circumstances, up to two catch-up classes can be booked for the same term only, dependent on availability. Catch up classes are not offered if you choose to miss a class due to travel.
  • In the event of a class being cancelled, another class will be offered in lieu, where possible.
  • If studio classes are unable to run due to a government enforced lock down (e.g. due to a pandemic), classes will be provided online.
  • Classes are only run on Public Holidays at the discretion of the Director. Should a class be cancelled due to a Public Holiday, a catch up class will be offered.
  • We reserve the right to substitute teachers should the need arise.
  • Parents/carers are responsible for keeping up to date with information related to Gumnut Dance classes.
  • Gumnut Dance strives to provide a supportive learning environment with all policies and programs designed with the students’ best interest in mind. Parents/carers must be respectful and follow Gumnut Dance policies and decisions made by the Director and/or teachers at all times. If parent/carer behaviour is deemed to be disrespectful of teachers, enrolment will be cancelled.
  • All students are insured by Public Liability insurance whilst under the supervision of the appointed teacher.
  • In the case of emergency where an ambulance is required, parents/carers are liable for the cost of the ambulance.
  • Mobile phones and cameras are not allowed to be used during class, unless teacher permission is given.
  • One parent/carer is to participate during the term in Spinning Gumnut classes. Extra family members are welcome to watch at the presentation class (week 10) at the end of term (depending on COVID restrictions).
  • For all other levels, please leave your child to dance. Children engage with the program more effectively and have the opportunity to become independent learners when parents are not directly in the room (just like at preschool or school).
  • If your child needs to be reassured during class, please join in – rather than sitting at the side of the class as this can be distracting for children and may be unsafe (children might run and fall). Please discuss joining in with the teacher.
