At Jigsaw Dance Studio Hornsby Wahroonga we try and make our dance experience for dancers and especially their parents and smooth and streamlined as possible. We do of course get some pretty regular questions from dancing families about the rules in place at our dance studio. To assist we have created a Frequently Asked Dance Questions page to help you out with some of the regular questions.
Q: Can mum and dad watch the dance class?
A: First time parents of the younger groups may watch the beginning of the first class to help settle dancers in. After this we find that the children respond much better without parents and siblings in the studio. However, after many years of experience, special tactics are used for those who have trouble separating from their parents, so don’t worry if it takes your dancer a couple of weeks to feel comfortable and participate.
For all other classes, parents are not permitted to enter or be present in the studio once class has commenced. It is distracting and unsettling for all the dancers. We will give the parents a chance to have a sneak peak for the last 10mins of class during the final week of the term 1 and 3.
Q: Is it compulsory to perform in the end of year dance concert?
A: Our concerts are not compulsory but highly recommended. It’s a fun and entertaining experience for everyone involved and a great way for your dancer to show off all their hard work they have done through-out the year. Our concerts are designed to be pressure free and as relaxed as possible for everyone involved.
Our end of year concert is usually the 2nd Sunday in November, so the dancing year finishes before the massive rush and commitments of Christmas start.
Q: Can we enrol to dance classes after the term has started?
A: Yes – we accept new students throughout the year. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for an information sheet and timetable.
Q: Does Jigsaw Dance Hornsby break for school holidays?
A: Yes – we dance within the NSW Schools Terms, therefore following NSW School holidays and Public Holidays (except our starting week of the year and our finishing week of the year).
Also, our first week back always starts on a Monday (unless it’s a Public Holiday) even if your child’s school has a pupil free day.
Q: Do I need to buy dance uniform or shoes before I enrol?
A: No – dancers trying classes for the first time are encouraged to come in comfy clothes and sneakers. Uniform, shoes and accessories can be purchased at the studio either on class days or at the start of the year at our Registration and Discount Uniform Day.
Q: How can I pay for dance classes?
A: We have a range of options to pay for your dance classes. Cash, Direct Debit, Personal Cheque, money order and Credit Card.
