Dear Parents/Carers & Students of Academy of Dance Victoria

  • As per previous years enrolments automatically roll over for current ADV school age students aged grade 1at school to university age classes. 

  • A copy of the 2023 Information booklet will be sent in late November and a link for varying your enrolment will be included to allow you to add or remove any classes if you are wanting to vary your enrolment for 2023

  • If your dancer will not be returning in 2023 please confirm by email to advreception@bigpond.com before 10th December 2022 to cancel their enrolment.  We have waiting lists for many classes and will offer those spots to new students.  

  • Singing lessons do not roll over and are required to be re-booked in January online via a trybooking link which will be sent in January

  • Private dance lessons for competition solos and classical coaching are by invitation only.  Solo coaching times are set in January by the ADV team and will be sent out to invited student at that time.



Our preschool bookings do not automatically roll over.  

Due the popularity of our preschool and prep age classes, current students will have priority enrolment commencing Monday 31st October at 9am by this trybooking link https://www.trybooking.com/CDOJK. 

This gives our current families the opportunity to ensure you can book into your preferred day and time for 2023 classes before.

Places fill quickly so please ensure you book in to avoid disappointment.



From 17th to 28th October we will again be offering our My Child Interviews.  This provides parents with the opportunity to discuss their child’s progress or recommendations for 2022 classes or any concerns with either Miss Tamara the Principal or Miss Kylie our studio manager.   Please note if you wish to discuss multiple children you will need to book an interview per child.  There is no charge for the interviews, Miss Tamara and Miss Kylie kindly provide their spare time for the process as they are passionate about providing the best environment & opportunities for all our dancers.  Please book in via the trybooking links below.  Book a time: https://www.trybooking.com/CDKHX
