• Can I try a class before I decide to enrol for the term?

    Yes, new students can trial any class to see if they want to continue with it for the duration of the term. Current students can also trial classes that they are not enrolled in.
  • Can I sit in and watch my child's class?

    No, parents are not permitted to watch any classes. When students are first starting in the younger classes parents will be able to sit in for the first and second class if the child is shy/nervous but after this time parents will be required to wait outside. We hold a parents watch week occasionally where parents can sit in during class.
  • Do I have to buy a BDA uniform?

    If you have trialled a class and decide you want to enrol for the term you will be required to purchase a BDA uniform. We have these available to purchase at the Studio. For more information regarding uniform requirements please see our Uniforms page.
  • What is the best way to contact BDA?

    Emails are the primary method of communication at BDA. Please ensure it is correct on your enrolment form and checked regularly. (Please make sure the primary guardian's email address is used and not the students)

    We also have a Facebook page for BDA parents and students (BDA Mums and Dads), we strongly suggest you become a member of this page as it is also used as a primary source of communication.

  • How do I pay for classes?

    Your account statement is viewable in your parent portal. Your term amount will be added to your account at the beginning of each term. You can pay via the portal using PayPal, or you can use your bank to direct debit. We also accept EFTPOS and cash payments at the office. Please ensure you use your full name as the reference when paying via direct deposit.
  • Are there any extra costs involved besides the class cost?

    Yes, there will be some additional costs involved, and will vary depending on your level of involvement.

    Each student will need to purchase a uniform specific to the class. Generally this requires a leotard with tights, and can be accompanied by shorts or 3/4 pants. Please see the Uniforms page for detailed information regarding these requirements.
