Child Safety

The safety of students who attend classes at IPA is the responsibility of their parents/guardians.  Whilst classes are being conducted it is extremely hard to police the care of students who are either waiting for their lift home or for their next class to begin.  If a student does need to wait on the premises they are to conduct themselves in an appropriate and safe manner. IPA will not be forthcoming in the responsibility for any student involved in any un-safe behaviour and/or practices.

Newsletters

Our studio emails newsletters 2 – 3 times a term (please ensure that your email address is on file and correct). A hard copy will also be given to your child in their class. Industry Performing Arts takes no responsibility for students not receiving information. Please check the website regularly for updated information.

Uniform

Parents are responsible for purchasing the proper footwear, dance wear
and necessary equipment for safety and success in class. New students have a period of 2 weeks to purchase the appropriate clothing. Any child not appropriately dressed may be refused entry to class.

Parents

Parents are not permitted to disrupt a class or rehearsal in progress.
Parents will be invited to watch classes on the last day of each Term

Punctuality

Parents must be responsible for ensuring your children arrive and are
collected on time. Teachers and staff are not always available to
supervise late pickups. Students may be refused entry if they are
continuously late to class.

Tuition Fees

Tuition fees are to be paid in full within 21 days. Fees paid after 21 days
will automatically attract a $25.00 late payment charge, fees still
outstanding 30 Days after Term commencement will automatically attract a further $50.00 Late Fee. All fees are non-refundable and non-transferable once paid and no concessions will be made for missed classes. Payments can be made by cash,cheque,Bpay or Direct deposit

If students choose to withdraw from classes without completing a full term – all classes attended that term will be recalculated & charged at a casual class rate of $16 per class.

Performance Students

All performance groups and solos need to be attending ballet classes.Its our Professional opinion that ballet helps develop sound technique and strength no matter what Genre.

Private Lessons

Private lessons must be booked through Nicole and Samantha and must be paid for in full. No credit will be given for missed lessons.
Eisteddfod Solo students must book a regular time slot. If you are
absent or sick you must find another student to swap or take your time
otherwise you will still be liable for the original time slot booked.
If you do not pay for your slot when you are absent your regular time
will be passed onto another student, as spaces are very limited.

Classes

All students must arrive on time and in correct studio uniform to be
admitted entry. Timetable may change after Ballet exams due to children
moving up a grade

Class Viewing Week

Classes are normally closed to spectators, however all classes are open
for viewing by parents and friends on OPEN DAYS during the last week of terms 1, 2, 3 & 4

Parking

Concert

Our end of year concert will be held at the concourse theatre Chatswood.
Students will be required to purchase and wear the chosen costume for their class. Costumes are made for the students (occasionally trimmings need to be added) and are yours to keep. Costume prices do fluctuate
but usually range from $55 – $100. Parents are responsible for providing their child’s clothing sizes before the costumes are ordered.
Industry Performing Arts will do its best to accommodate all students
but we cannot guarantee a perfect fit on costumes. Children come in all shapes and sizes and therefore alterations may be necessary.
The Concert is not compulsory.
The performance is an exhibition of
student progress throughout the year. Extra rehearsals in term 4 are
necessary for the concert and will be at an extra charge.

go on sale through the Theatre Box office. Industry
