How to enrol

  • To enrol for Term 2, please fill out the online form under “Enrol Online” on our website www.leapsandbounds.com.au
  • Payments can be made with Visa or MasterCard, otherwise an invoice will be emailed to you with other payment options (direct deposit/cash). Any discounts will be applied to your invoice. Please see our discounts and policies below.
  • A $25 deposit (per class) is required to secure the place in the class. It is your choice to pay either the full amount or the deposit only. If paying the deposit only, an invoice will be emailed for the balance which is due at the start of the term. Discounts will only be applied to enrolments paid in FULL before the end of Term 1. 
  • Please note that deposits are non-refundable and credits are not issued for absences due to illness or holidays.
  • Term 2 enrolments will be on a first in – first enrolled basis. Do not turn up to a class in Term 2 without enrolling!
  • Students with outstanding fees from Term 1will not be permitted to enrol or dance in Term 2 until the Term 1 account has been settled.
  • Parents should notify Leaps and Bounds if contact details change (phone, address, email).
  • Please contact us at info@leapsandbounds.com.au if you wish to arrange a payment plan.

Re-enrolment is held at the end of each term. Re-enrolment gives current students the option to re-enrol for the next term before places are open to new students. A non-refundable $25 deposit per child per class or full payment is required before the school holidays to guarantee your child's place for the following term. We have introduced this system as a result of increased demand for classes.

Parents may watch Kinder Dance, Pre-Primary Ballet and Pre-Primary Jazz classes only in Terms 1,2 and 3. In Term 4 there is no parent watching allowed due to concert preparations. Parents and young siblings are encouraged to make use of our waiting areas.

**Students enrol at their own risk and Leaps and Bounds accepts no liability for injury or loss to students under any circumstances. Students may be filmed during class and while participarting in concerts and other events for private use within the dance school. Parents can elect for their child not to be included in concert photographs that may be shared on our social media pages.**
