As the quantity of students allowed into each Dance Studio space is strictly limited, we ask CASUAL ADULT STUDENTS to contact us to ‘book’ a position in their chosen class by no later than 2pm on the day of that class. That way, we can confirm if there are available positions to accommodate you.
Casual Attendance allows students to pay only as they attend class. Students may also purchase a discounted Adult Casual 10 Class Pass which allows attendance to any style Adult Lessons during the calendar year.
Third Family Member Discount of 50% off class fees (not applicable to Performance Group Levy, Casual Fees or Private Lessons). Multiple Class Package Deals for 3 or more classes available!
It is important to look well groomed, neatly presented and take pride in your appearance as a dancer, no matter what style of dance you study. Dance attire is specially designed to fit the dancer's body so their movements can be clearly seen by the teacher. Loose and ill fitting street wear is not suitable for most classes as it can hide incorrect technique and impede movement.
Long hair should be tied back neatly from the student's face and firmly secured. Ribbons and hair clips may be worn in a complimentary colour to the appropriate uniform.
For all Ballet, National Character, Tap, Jazz, Contemporary, Musical Theatre, AcroDance, Stretch & Strengthen and Performance Group classes, long hair is to be well secured in a classical style at the back of the head (bun, knot or contemporary 'up' style). In class, under no circumstances, should hair hang loose upon the shoulders.
For Hip Hop and Cheer classes, longer hair may be worn in a pony tail or similar, but should not hang in the dancer's face.
Wrist watches, bracelets, necklaces and dangly earrings should not be worn for safety reasons.
It is important to look well presented. Clean tights give legs an important pulled-up feeling, as a well fitting leotard makes a dancer looked well groomed and ready to work.
Ballet shoes should fit like a second skin with a small amount of room for growth allowance. A shoe too large and sloppy is dangerous and too small will cramp the toes.
Dance attire and uniforms are available directly from Dance Magic Academy or Anything Dance located at Blaxland Road Campbelltown. Also from Target, Big W, Best & Less and Bloch or Energetiks.
New students may wish to wait for a couple of weeks before purchasing specific dance gear and comfortable, stretchy clothing may be worn instead. Temporary footwear such as soft or rubber soled shoes for Tiny Dancers, Ballet & Jazz classes and hard soled shoes for Tap classes are acceptable.
Refer to the Uniform Guide for detailed information on class attire.
DMA PreLoved Dance Gear
At Dance Magic Academy we have a PreLoved Dance Gear Facebook Page where parents and students can buy and sell PreLoved items of dance attire. Children usually tend to outgrow their dance gear and shoes before they wear them out and it is a great way to pick up a quality item without the expensive price tag. Due to health regulations NO PRELOVED TIGHTS can be sold.
If your kids have outgrown their dancing gear and shoes, post a photo including size, brand, condition and price of the item. Term 1 is the best time of year to sell dance gear. In particular SHOES: Hip Hop Sneakers, Tan and Black Jazz Shoes, Tan Tap Shoes, Ballet Shoes, plus Leotards, DMA Jackets, all these items are in demand.
A very big part of the concert experience are the stunning costumes that all performers get to wear. At DMA we hire some costumes and source high quality best value garments to help keep costume fees as low as possible. Some costumes will remain the property of Dance Magic Academy however most costumes will remain your own to keep.
To assist with the cost of concert costumes, Dance Magic Academy has implemented an easy payment plan included with class fees and provide quarterly Costume Fund Statements for each student. Term Payments are due the first Friday of each term. Students in each class will learn a routine (some classes may learn 2 routines) for the concert.
Costumes are ordered and made in June/July. If a student has not made any contributions to their Costume Fund by this time then no costume will be organised for them.
Costume Budget $90 to $100 per routine, often less depending on style of dance.
