SHOWCASE

The above courses (except Bollywood Beginner) will be teaching showcase specific items and classes will geared towards the final stage performance. If you do not wish to participate in showcase, then we strongly recommend that you enrol in the term AFTER showcase and in the meantime choose from our many casual class options. The participation fee applies for all students and for every additional course. A discount will automatically apply at checkout for those enrolling in multiple courses, so please register for all your courses in the one transaction. There are no refunds for anyone enrolled in showcase term who is unable to participate, and attendance in class is a priority. Please consider your commitment prior to enrolling.

DANCE GUARANTEE

We pride ourselves in working with Melbourne’s most experienced dance teachers. If you complete a full course, without missing any studio classes, and find that you’re unable to learn the dance routine or unsatisfied for any reason, then we will issue a full refund. Just reach out to us. We’re here for our dance family. Dance. Guaranteed.

MULTIPLE COURSE DISCOUNT

Sign up for multiple full courses currently listed under our ‘In-Studio Courses’ timetable above, and the following bulk discounts will apply automatically at checkout:
Full price for 1st course, 10% off the 2nd course, 25% off⁠ both the 3rd & 4th course!*
*No discounts apply for casual class, concept videos, masterclasses & online courses
Multiple course registrations must be completed in the same transaction (i.e. if you sign up for another course later, discount does not apply).

CANCELLATIONS

Numbers are very limited in our in-studio courses, and therefore no refunds or credits can be issued for cancelling your in-studio enrollment at any time, sorry 🙁 This includes change of mind, illness, pregnancy, pandemics, missed classes or drop-outs. However, if you complete the full course without missing any in-studio sessions, and are not satisfied for any reason, then a refund will be issued.

In the rare event that your teacher is unable to take a class (e.g illness) then a guest teacher will be arranged or the class may be rescheduled or cancelled. For any cancelled classes or courses by Studio J, a full refund will be given for the class/es affected.

MISSED CLASSES & ABSENCES

There are no refunds or credits for missed classes or absences. We encourage you to complete all sessions of your course as they are designed to progress week after week. However, we understand life happens, so we have mini recordings of your class, practice videos and group chats in place to make it easier for you to stay on track and get the most out of your course.

For our courses which end with a video shoot, we do require students to have attended at least 75% of the classes (6 out of 8 weeks) within the course to ensure that they have kept up with choreography and blocking. If a student misses more than 2 classes, they are expected to catch up via the class recordings and the teacher may also review suitability for participation in the group video.

AGE REQUIREMENT

You must be over 18 years of age to participate in all our in-studio courses. For those aged 16-17, enrollments will be considered upon request.

CLASS PHOTOS & VIDEOS

Our teachers and some students occasionally take photos and videos during class, plus our courses finish with a professionally edited dance video. We may use any of this footage on our website, social media, and promotional material. If you don’t feel comfortable with this, then please let your teacher know at the start of the course and make sure you opt out of any photos or video filming during class. If you don’t tell us, we won’t know that you’re not ok with us using footage of you.

MEDICAL PRECAUTIONS:

Not all exercises are suitable for everyone, and dance like any other exercise program can result in injury. Certain special cautions may apply to individuals who are pregnant, injured, disabled, or have special issues regarding health and/or physical condition. You must be in suitable physical health to undertake these classes. You understand the risks inherent to dance and fully assume those risks and/or have sought medical advice prior to starting class. You hereby release Studio J Dance and its teachers from liability for injuries sustained while participating in any dance classes, rehearsals or workshops.

PREGNANCY OR PRE-EXISTING MEDICAL CONDITIONS

If you are pregnant or have a pre-existing condition, you should seek advice and clearance from a medical practitioner before enrolling. Please let us know at the start of the course, or as soon as you know and make sure you have your medical practitioner’s clearance to exercise. We cannot offer medical advice.
