  • ^ Casual classes operate on a per class basis and do not require payment in full for a given semester rather each class is paid individually or via a casual class pass.
  • Class passes are valid for 6 months from the date of purchase. Each pass can only be used by one person per class and are not transferable or refundable. Expired passes – unused classes may be carried forward if a new class pass is purchased.
  • A $30 registration fee (excl. GST) applies to all new enrolments. Existing students who take more than 18 months of leave will require to re-enrol and will be charged registration fee upon re-enrolment.


Discounts are automatically applied to enrolments for a given semester, with each discount applied individually to each student’s fees, as described in the table below:

No. of classes* enrolled 1 2 3 4 5 6 7+
First student  $-  $20.00  $40.00  $60.00  $80.00  $120.00  $120.00
Second student onwards  $20.00  $40.00  $60.00  $80.00  $100.00  $120.00  $140.00

*Excludes Theory and extra classes due to exams/rehearsals.

For example:

  • If a single student takes two subjects – e.g., Bharata Natyam and Carnatic Vocal, then a $20.00 discount is applied to the student’s fees for the entire semester.
  • If three children enrol in one class each, e.g., both enrol in Kathak, then a $20.00 discount is applied to each student’s fees for Kathak, reducing the total invoice by $40.00 for the customer.
