      Commitment to Performances/Rehearsals:

      • Students must attend 70% of classes/term if they wish to perform (if this cannot be met and you want to perform you must have a private class to catch up)
      • All classes perform at a mid year performance in July and end of year performance (along with a dress rehearsal/photo day) in December. You will be given the dates and information very early in the year. You must inform Miss Zoe ASAP if you do not wish to/cannot perform. You may still attend classes if you cannot perform
      • Please note the end of year concert is TWO replica shows & you MUST COMMIT TO BOTH
      • If you pull out of a commitment financial penalties may apply
      • At Miss Zoe’s School of Dance WE DO NOT HAVE EXPENSIVE COSTUMES, rather we charge a small hire (non applicable if you pay by the term) for costumes that students borrow and return after performances. You will need your own basics in addition to what we supply – such as dance shoes, tights, leggings, leotards, etc – you will be informed of exact requirements close to performance times.
