Please ensure you read and understand the Hills Dance Factory Fee Policy outlined below. We kindly ask that you respect this policy as this enables us to continue to provide you & your children with the best possible services. By signing an enrolment form you are acknowledging that you agree to the following terms.
A non refundable annual registration fee of $15.00 per student or $25.00 per family is invoiced on your first Term Fees to cover administration costs and intellectual property (copyright) fees for music.
All dance fees are charged out on an equal per Term basis (the number of weeks in each term, any public holidays or student absentees do not alter the invoiced amount). All accounts are sent out before the first week of the term and are payable by the fourth week of that term. Students who enrol after the beginning of a term must finalise their accounts within 14 days of billing. Please be aware that a 10% late fee WILL be applicable for accounts not paid by the fourth week. Parents who cannot pay within the allocated timeframe should contact Gabriela to work out a suitable alternative.
Please note a discounted rate is available if you have more than one child attending classes (when you have more than one child enrolled, the child who attends fewer classes weekly is the child who receives the discount rate). HDF Sibling & Referral discount rates are ONLY applicable provided that all fees are paid in full before the end of week 4 of each term or if other arrangements have been made.
Costume deposits may be included in Term 2 & Term 3 invoices for some classes.
Students with outstanding amounts on their account may be excluded from classes & private lessons until their fees have been brought up to date. No student will be permitted to dance in the end of year concert whilst they have outstanding fees. Costumes will not be handed out until they are paid in full.
Fees can be paid via Internet banking direct deposit, cheque, cash or EFTPOS (at the studio front desk). Fees paid at the studio front desk need to be made to a HDF staff member with a receipt being issued recording the payment. Please do not leave cash at an unattended counter.
All cheques should be made out to “The Hills Dance Factory”. Our direct deposit account details are as follows –
Account Name – The Hills Dance Factory
BSB # - 06 2401
Acc # - 1024 6303
***Please include your Family Name or Invoice # in the comments field of the transaction. A receipt for payments made online will be issued only on request.

All account enquiries should be addressed to our office manager Mark via email firstname.lastname@example.org
It is the parent’s responsibility to keep our records up to date by informing us in writing of personal contact detail changes or changes to classes. Please note our invoices are emailed out to all families so please let us know if this is not suitable.
If you decide to leave the studio, please let us know in writing with 2 weeks notice. This will allow us to update all records.
