Is there a Uniform?

If it is a student’s first class they are not expected to wear uniform and can wear something that they can move in easily. If prospective students do not have a leotard and skirt or bike shorts, they can wear leggings, a t-shirt and bare feet. Although not compulsory, we encourage all students to wear our school uniform. This can be our basic Encore t-shirt and black leggings with correct dance shoes or the complete uniform - available for Ready Set Dance and/or Encore. All these items including shoes can be purchased from our online store at https://www.encoredance.com.au/shop-1 or at our front desk.


Am I allowed to view my child’s class?

We have screens in both studio waiting areas which allow parents to view the classes.

Students are welcome to enrol part way through a term, however we do cut off enrolments in term 3 due to concert preparations.

Is there an annual concert?
