FREE TRIALS FOR CURRENT STUDENTS

For students who were enrolled at ADV last year (2020) we are offering free trials during the first week of term to allow them to try any dance styles they might be interested in but don’t usually take! If you would like to take advantage of this offer please email Lisa at advreception@bigpond.com and let her know the class your dancer would like to try. 

 

PRIVATE LESSON OFFERS

Private lesson offers will be coming out this week via email.  We have very limited places in Term 1 due to limitations on studio space and teaching staff.  We hope to have more spots available as the year progresses.

 

 

COVID PROCEDURES

As always Academy of Dance Victoria has covid safety at the forefront of our operations.  We continue to follow our covid safe documentation and are in the process of having HEPA Filters installed in the studio. For Term 1 we will be continuing to follow the below procedures. 

Only students will be able to enter the studio premises.  With the exception of pre-school parents who can have one 1 fully vaccinated parent per child enter.   New parents to the school with students undertaking a trial class may also enter but must be double vaccinated.      We do hope in Term 2 to be able to open the studio safely to all parents however at this time we do not feel that it is in the best interests of our students & staff. 

Parents can view all classes via our virtual viewing windows on the information portal.   Please feel free to log in and watch class we do like to encourage parents to see what their dancer is learning.  Please note that under our child protection rules you must have your camera on when viewing classes online so that staff can see who is present.   Our admin staff monitor all viewing windows to ensure safety for our dancers.

Students who are at home isolating can also access class via the viewing windows on the Information portal.  

Parents of current students who need to pay fees or have a question are encouraged to call reception on 98989899 or Tamara on 0425353600 (business hours only please) or email advreception@bigpond.com

Parents and students are reminded that they should not attend the studio if they have any Covid symptoms, or have been in touch with anyone who is covid positive.
