Discounts are added for students enrolling in 2 or more hours of classes per week. Discounts are calculated based on the amount of hours a dancer signs up for.

  • 6+ hours per week = capped at $307.80 + GST = $323.19 per month. Any additional hours are added at a flat rate of $30 + GST = $31.50 per month.

To calculate class fees add up your student’s hours & apply the corresponding discount. Ex. 2 hours per week = 1 hour class rate ($57) X 2 = $114 – minus 5% discount ($5.70) = $108.30 + GST.
