2019 Terms and Conditions

Terms and conditions must be agreed to upon enrolment as they are designed to provide a happy, fun and safe learning environment for all students. 

As parent/guardian/18+ student, I agree to and understand the following:

Registration An annual registration fee is charged on your first invoice. This fee covers insurances, APRA Fees, administration costs and end of year presentation costs. This fee is applied to both casual and full enrolments and is non-refundable. 

Enrolment All students must register online via a link provided to you from TDH.  Your enrolment is valid for the entire calendar year; therefore your child will be automatically re-enrolled into their class each term after enrolment. If you wish to discontinue a class you must notify the Principal immediately via email at thedancehub@outlook.com and any outstanding fees for that class must be paid in full for the remainder of the Term.

Casual Classes Casual enrolment is available for all classes for majority of the year at an amended price of $17.50/hour and must be paid at the commencement of each class.  Students who are enrolled on a casual basis will not be able to participate in our End of Year Concert. 

Fees Term Fees – are strictly payable by the second week of each term. Overdue invoices will incur a $10 administration fee each week the invoice remains unpaid after the due date. Term fee payment will be pro-rata only for new students starting mid-term, not existing students. 

Refunds Term fees are based on your child’s position in the class and not their attendance; therefore term fees are non-refundable and non-transferrable.  

Email Correspondence All information is sent to the email address listed for the primary contact and all information held within is assumed read. You must notify us if you are not receiving our emails, as you are missing out on important information. 

Concert Participation Our End of Year Concert for all Dance Hub students will be held on Sunday 3rdNovember 2019 (TBC) at Hornsby RSL. While participation is not compulsory it is recommended, as it is the conclusion of the students progression and achievements and an invaluable part of their training.  A small deposit will be charged in Term 2 to confirm participation in the end of year concert and a costume hire fee and a dress rehearsal fee will be charged in Term 3. These amounts confirm participation it are both non-refundable. All accounts must be paid in full prior to concert participation. 

 Before School Dance @ Kent Road Public School: End of Year Performance $1 from each lesson payment will go towards your child’s costume hire for the end of year performance. A final fee may be charged during Term 3 or 4. This amount confirms participation and is non-refundable.
