FAQ

What class should we enrol into if we have had no previous ballet/dance experience? 

Please contact the office directly to discuss your enrolment and determine which class is suitable for your child and their experience level.

 

Do you offer trial lessons? 

We can offer a class to trial before enrolling, please just contact the office to determine which class would be the best and whether there is availability.

 

Do you charge for trial lessons? 

There is no charge for standalone trial classes; however, if you choose to enrol that term following your trial, the full-term fees will cover the cost of the class your child took.

 

What happens if we miss a class? 

Charlesworth Ballet School does not offer pro-rate fees or credits for missed classes. Where possible, a make-up lesson may be offered if a student is absent. However, please note, only one make-up class is permitted per term.

 

Do we need to take part in two classes per week, if we are in Grade 3 or above? 

Charlesworth Ballet School strives to provide the best training in Classical Ballet in WA. We believe that in order for any student to steadily progress and improve, two classes per week is the bare minimum requirement. Not attending a Level 2 class regularly will affect the students development and therefore impact their ability to take on harder work in the following Grade, which is why those who enrol in a Level 1 class only will need to repeat their Grade the following year. Not only will the student take an extra year to complete their grade, they will also not be eligible to participate in the annual Exams and EOY performance. Therefore, although two classes a week is not compulsory, it is strongly recommended.
