FAQs for New People

There's always so much information when starting something new!

Below we've tried to answer the most common questions which parents, new to Kinderballet, usually ask...

Please get in touch if you cannot find what you are looking for or if you require any clarification!



  • How much are the classes?
    • Prices range from $17 - $22 per class (Our Fees)
    • There is also an accident insurance fee of $8 per term per family, which not only covers the child, but the parent participating in the case or our younger classes ('Cherubs' and 'Mummy & Me').
  • How do we start?
    • We like everyone to start off with a trial, to see how they go before they commit!
    • Depending on your class, we start off with either a single trial or a 'three-class trial pack:
      • Younger classes (for children under 3½ - 'Cherubs' and 'Mummy & Me') start off with a 3-week trial pack which is usually $50, this is because younger children usually need time to adjust to a new environment before you can ascertain how they will go, long term.
      • Older classes start with a single trial class which you only pay for if you decide to enroll.
  • Do parents watch the classes?
    • In our younger classes ('Cherubs' and 'Mummy & Me'), we require one adult to participate with the child, to assist them and just 'be there' for them.
    • In our older classes we generally (there are of course exceptions) do not have parents in the room for regular classes. Kinderballet is an educational experience (rather than entertainment) and at the end of the day we are preparing our preschoolers for school - independance is a crucial factor in School Readiness. Please have a look at this great (article) for further details.
  • Where (or what times) are the classes?
    • We offer classes in Victoria, Queensland, Sydney and Adelaide (See locations)
  • Which class is right for my child?
  • Is there an end of year concert?
    • Our older classes (Mummy and Me, Tots, Kiddies, and Next Steps) have a low-key event known as Presentation Day. (Cherubs don't have an end of year event)
    • It's usually held in the same venue as regular classes (approximately) during regular class time.
    • In 2023, the Presentation Day Fee is $30 for 'Cherubs', $60 per child for 'Mummy & Me' and 'Tots' classes and $65 for 'Next Steps' classes. The price for Aspirant classes will be different for each class as costumes and the cost of the external assessor will differ between classes. There are no ticket sales or rehersals to pay for.
  • Is Kinderballet for boys?
    • Our programs are not gender-specific, but many elements may be considered to be aimed more at girls.
    • When we do have boys in our classes, our teachers are able to adapt the class to further accomodate them.
  • Is Mummy and Me just for Mummy's?
    • No. It's only called "Mummy and Me" because its usually 'Mum' that attends.
    • Any responsible adult can accompany the child to class, we have Mums, Dads, Grandmas and Granddads, aunties, nannies, family friends...
    • Although, only ONE adult may participate per session
  • Can I bring my younger child to Cherubs or Mummy and Me?
    • Yes, if they are still in a pram it may work quite well, however, if they are mobile then you may have to spend much of your time persuing your little one :)
  • What if we miss a class?
    • You may book-in for a makeup class at another time and/or location
  • Where can I purchase shoes and dancewear?
  • What if my child is shy and may not participate?
    • Many children are shy and that's often the reason why parents are looking for an appropiate activity in the first place
    • From feedback, we have seen that 'Building Confidence' is the Number ONE benefit parents have seen in their children from attending Kinderballet
    • Find out what you can do to make sure your child has the best chance from the start (Read Article)
  • What should they wear to class?
    • Girls - dancewear, or a fairy dress or favorite dress-up, as long as its comfortable to move in and doesn't matter if you get down in the floor in it
    • Boys - dancewear, or t-shirt and shorts
    • Shoes? - We recommend proper ballet shoes, but bare feet are fine to start off
    • More details on what to wear
  • Is there a registration fee?
    • No, we try and make it affordable as possible - that's also why we don't insist on special uniforms, ballet shoes... Our Fees
  • Are fees refundable?
    • Generally no, unless it's our fault a class (or classes) are cancelled or there is a serious medical reason that can be substantiated in writing
  • What are the class sizes?
    • 10 in Cherubs, 11 in Mummy & Me classes and 13 for all others
  • What if a class is cancelled?
    • We will inform parents as soon as possible, the class will either be made up for in the holidays or parents will be offered the choice of a refund or credit for the cancelled class. Sometimes parents prefer to go to another location on the day, so that they don't miss their class that day!
  • What can I do if I am dissatisfied about something?
  • Are there references to Christmas in the programs?
    • Yes, only in Term 4, and only in the 'Mummy and Me' and 'Tots' programs.
