At Ascendance our classes are closed (excluding Tiny Stars Level 1) which means parents wait outside the dance room. We require 100% of your child’s attention so prefer you watch class from our viewing windows.
Sometimes it can be tricky to figure out if your child is keen to start dance or acrobatic lessons so at Ascendance we offer a free trial class before making a decision to enrol with us.
Dress your child in something that is comfortable and easy to move in e.g. singlet top, tights, shorts etc and bare feet.
Boys are more than welcome to come join in any of our dance and acrobatic classes.

IntegraPay is our new automated payment system introduced in 2020. Upon enrolment you will be able to select 1 off payment in full, monthly, weekly or fortnightly payments.
We require two weeks of notice in writing for any child who decides to leave the studio. Your account will be charged up until the end of the term, all fees are due and payable.
When you register your child, you understand the registration is for the full calendar year. The child’s position in the studio is secured in the current term and all remaining terms for the current calendar year. This allows us to plan for hiring premises, ensuring teachers and resources are available, and providing the best possible experience for your child.
Each child enrolled at Ascendance is required to wear our uniform to class. Our uniforms can be purchased via our websites online shop.
We want you to feel part of our dance community so this is why we prefer our students to be in uniform at all times.

Unfortunately we are unable to arrange a make up class as our classes only occur once a week.
Ascendance end of year concert is compulsory as we love to see all our wonderful students performing up on the big stage. Our concert is a wonderful opportunity for family and friends to see what their child has been learning with Ascendance.
Our Ascendance concert is a lovely performance opportunity for beautiful little dancers who are just at the very beginning of their dancing ‘career’. It’s a lovely, stress-free chance to put on a beautiful costume and dance on a magical stage in front of family and friends.
You can expect to be treated as part of the family. Your child will gain confidence, new friends, and a love for dance. When you first arrive you will be greeted by one of our lovely team and shown where your first class is. Your child will be introduced to some class members and encouraged to participate in class. Should you need to watch for the first couple of weeks this is absolutely fine.
