Upon acceptance into the Academy, a non-refundable Security Deposit is required to secure the position prior to program commencement. This amount will be deducted from the total annual/term program fees. Our Enrolment Agreement includes a comprehensive Fee Policy and payment options, and families must agree to strict payment terms and conditions.

In addition to program fees, other expenses include those relating to dancewear, uniforms, medical expenses, *schooling, living and ancillary expenses, and are the responsibility of the student/family. 

*Schooling expenses are only relevant to the Academy Program (Levels 6 to 1). Our Academic partner, Kelvin Grove State College is an Independent Public School and therefore does not charge school fees. School-related expenses include an 'Out-of-Catchment' enrolment application fee for those living outside of the designated school catchment, an annual resource fee, uniforms, some subject fees, stationary, excursions/incursions etc.

Program fees listed above are applicable to Australian and New Zealand students only. For International Student fees, please contact
