Information for Students and Parents
Students from Ages 4 to Adult can enrol in a variety of classes depending on age and experience in Dance, Drama and/or Music. Classes run on Tuesday afternoon at our Croydon site, and Monday & Thursday afternoons and evenings at our Burwood site. Students may choose to enrol in dance, drama and music classes at the most appropriate level, or they may choose to enrol in only one, or two disciplines.
A light afternoon tea is provided for all junior students during our community space in the changeover between classes. Afternoon tea, including tea and coffee, is also provided for parents. Our hosts are there to assist with signing in and fee payment, and will do everything they can to make everyone feel welcome and safe. We invite parents to relax with other families in our welcome area.
All students perform annually in our Spring Production. Students may also have the opportunity to perform throughout the year at community performances, fetes, festivals and seasonal events. We aim to create opportunities for students to perform out in the community as often as possible.
Students do not require specialised uniforms for classes, however we encourage students to purchase their own 3dArts Company t-shirt ($20 ordered at the beginning and middle of the year).
As a not-for-profit organisation with a vision to provide access to the Arts to all people, 3d Arts heavily subsidises all class fees and levies. Our fees are much lower than commercial rates and donations to our junior productions are voluntary. We have a heart to ensure that no one misses out on the activities and community that 3d Arts promotes. Please approach us if any costs are beyond your means and we can support you financially. We also invite families who are able to contribute to our scholarship support program which creates opportunities for young people to participate in 3d Arts who would otherwise be unable to due to financial hardship.
All classes are very affordable, beginning at $5.50 - $8.25 per class for juniors and $11.00 - $16.50 for Youth & Adults. We strongly encourage all families to pay term fees at the commencement of each term by bank deposit.
As a not-for-profit, charitable organisation, we rely on donations from our supporters to continue our work in the community. Please consider giving a financial gift to support young people in the arts by contributing a production donation during production season, or by completing a supporter form on our website and becoming a regular support partner.
We welcome students from entry to professional level to join our classes. Please email us to inquire about enrolling for 2021 and to find out more at . Please note that some classes are already at capacity and places are limited. Whilst we will do everything we can to create space for everyone, there may be a waiting list for some classes. A class timetable will be posted early each year.
