A term fee begins at $90.00 for a 30 minute class up to $135.00 for 75 minute class. Discount of 15% for students or families taking 3 or more classes during the week is offered. Most terms are 10 week terms and if we do not have classes due to public holidays, I encourage you to do make up class wherever possible.
Please note that all term fees must be paid up by the end of week 4 of each term to avoid a $10 late fee. *If necessary,I am happy to arrange a payment plan upon request.

8 - Do you have a concert?
Yes, we will hold a relaxed mid-year demonstration at the beautiful John Bray Performing Arts Centre (Gloucester Ave Belair), at end of term 2 to showcase what we have been learning throughout our first 2 terms. No costumes required.
There will also be an End Of Year Show, held mid-December. Taking part in the concert is exciting, fun and empowering! A chance to showcase their teamwork and skills learned throughout the year. The environment is fun and supportive and I encourage even the youngest and newest students to be involved.
Is there a concert fee?
Yes, a one off payment of $65.00 will be charged at the beginning of term 3. This cost covers many things including a beautiful take home costume, shipping costs, venue hire for both rehearsals and shows, videographer, photographers, technicians, licensing, gifts, liability insurance, GST and many more expenses that go into putting on a show.
What else is involved in the concert?
There will be a photo day on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon and a rehearsal leading up to the show. There will be two shows and your child may be required to participate in both shows depending on which class they attend.
Is it compulsory to participate in the End Of Year Show?
No, however if this is the case, pease let your teacher know ASAP as routines etc. may need to be amended. Keep in mind, most students love taking part and would be sad to miss out on the enjoyment of performing on stage with their friends.
9 - What styles of dance do you offer?
EPBS teaches the style of Cecchetti Ballet, beginning at the pre-primary level.
Pre School dance classes will use a playful approach with instruments, props and age appropriate activities to create a fun foundation for classical ballet.
We also offer classes in Musical Theatre, Jazz and Hip Hop.
You can view our timetable and class descriptions below.
10 - Can I watch my child’s class?
Parents are always welcome to watch if desired! There will be a mid-year demonstration at the end of term 2 and an end of year show in term 4.
Please know that some children can get quite nervous with a parent watching, some may feel uncomfortable, some may be easily distracted by noise. If you are watching, please be considerate of the class.
11 - Where can I park?
Church of the Holy Innocents’ - 31 Sheoak Road, Belair. Please use the car parking area around the back of the Church rather than the disabled parks as many elderly people come and go. It is also much safer to use the rear carpark, as there are no roads to cross. Belair Community Centre - 1 Burnell Drive, Belair. Lots of parking both front and rear. Belair Uniting Church - 18 Sheoak Road, Belair. Lots of parking out the front.
