BALLET AT ASAP STUDIOS!!!!
 
At ASAP Studios we understand the importance of Ballet & the solid foundation it provides its students, 
for all genres.  Yes, even in Tap & Hip Hop!
All students are required to attend a ballet class in order to enrol at our studio.
Because we believe in Ballet so much we offer something which other studios do not….
Free Ballet Classes for many students!!!!
 
We encourage all families to get the word out to dancers near & far about our fabulous ballet offer.
 
Ballet Only:  Students wishing to enrol in Ballet only are required to pay the full rate. 
Ballet Plus One Other Class: Students enrolled in a class other than Ballet,
will receive their Ballet tuition at ½ price.
Ballet Plus 2 or More Other Classes: For any students enrolled in 2 Classes other than Ballet,
their Ballet tuition will be FREE.
 
WHY?
We do not offer this for the purpose of growing our studio. As the Principal of ASAP Studios,
we offer this because we believe so strongly in the benefit the Ballet discipline instils.
We are aware that it can be costly for many families in our current economy, so we would like to be able to
give back to our dance community for those who aren’t able to afford the extra classes.
 
CONTENT….
Our ballet classes, while the basics are involved, also caters to the student who is not as keen
on this Genre.  Many students think of Ballet as being boring or too difficult.  To combat this,
we also introduce fun concepts into our Ballet classes. We work with Thera Bands.
We work with Fit Balls.  We often work with current music.  We want our students to improve
without realising they’re taking Ballet class.  While we understand the importance of the ballet discipline,
we also wholeheartedly understand the need to enjoy what you are learning.

Fees are paid on a per term basis.  You will be provided with an invoice for the term which is payable
within 14 days of receipt.  Payments can be made via credit card, direct deposit, or cash payments.
While accounts are charged per term, we also offer a weekly direct debit service upon request.

or if your child does not complete the full term.
