Q. Are you open at the moment?
A. Yes! We are open under strict Victorian Government restrictions.
Q. Can I just come and try a class?
A. We are a childsafe school and protect our children and quiet learning environment. All visitors need to be pre arranged especially with our Covid Safe plan and Government restrictions imposed on the business.
Q. How do I book a trial class?
A. You can book a trial class for only $10 via our website. We will reserve you a place in your class for 48 hours after the trial before offering to the next person on the wait list.
If you choose to continue after the trial you will need to enrol in the class the next day and pro rata fees will be payable.
Q. Can I watch class? (Covid restrictions)
A. We can invite 1 parent to watch their child's first class. This is subject to density quotients at the time.
Ongoing (until restrictions are eased and the density quotient is removed):
To protect our SSD Community and allow us to trade, Parents are currently not allowed onsite under our Covid Safe plan. Dancers need to be dropped off and picked up for classes by 1 parent. This will be re assessed as restrictions ease.
If a child needs their parent, we will sign them in to the building. There may be a transition period for new children and this will accommodated with consultation with our staff & the parent.

A. We are happy for dancers to be out of uniform for the first class. Leggings and tshirt with bare feet are fine. Hair must always be tied back neatly off the face.
