How can I pay for the classes?
Internet Bank Transfer if our preferred method of payment.
Cash or EFTPOS may be paid directly to our Studio Manager.
Please be aware there is a $15 late fee for accounts overdue by 14 days.
Is there a joining fee?
Do I have to start at the beginning of the term?
Do I have to commit to a full term?
If you are joining any of our STARS classes (children under school age) then the answer is NO! We understand life isn’t so easy every day of the week with little ones so you can come and go as you please.
We have recently introduced paying upfront for the term for all other classes at SUPERSTARS to encourage commitment and dedication to coming along to class each week as we focus on the upcoming concert.
(If you join mid-term, we just ask you to pay for the remaining weeks of the term).
Can I stay and watch the class?
It is appreciated if parents leave the actual dance space for the duration of ALL classes.
In saying this the area to wait is directly outside and you can see through the door to the children.
All students (believe it or not) will settle into class much faster if you leave before the start of the class. We believe this is definitely for the children’s benefit. We thank you for your co-operation.
Where is SUPERSTARS?
COORPAROO VENUE: Mt Carmel Primary School, Norfolk Street, Coorparoo. Walk into the driveway at the back of the church between the school office and you will run into the school multipurpose hall. PLEASE NOTE: under no circumstances are you allowed to drive into the driveway of the school. Please park on the street and walk into the hall from there.
How long does a class go for?
Most classes go for 40 minutes now to allow 5 minutes for cleaning between classes to stay in line with our COVIDSafe industry policies. Exceptions to this are the MUSICAL THEATRE PROGRAMS. They go for 1.5 hours on a Tuesday and incorporates 3 classes – Singing, Drama and Dance into one afternoon.

Yes. In 2020 our end of year concert will be held on Sunday 22d November.
Are there any extra rehearsals before the concert?
Yes. We hold one rehearsal on the stage the day before the concert. (In 2020 our rehearsal is on the 21st November). You will only be required for around 1 hour and will be told that specific time a few weeks before the concert.)
What do I wear to the concert?
If you participate in Baby Stars, Tiny Stars, Pre-Prep Stars, Ballet Stars or Hip Hop Stars you do not need a costume (your SUPERSTARS uniform is what you will wear on the stage).
If you participate in any of our after school classes you will hire a costume off SUPERSTARS for the concert. This is additional to wearing your SUPERSTARS uniform also.
How much will participating in the concert cost?
There is a “Concert Fee” which is $35 per child, which covers your participation in both the rehearsal and the concert.
There will also be a “Costume Fee” of $35 per child per class.
For example, if your child does 2 classes per week, their Concert Fee will be $30, and their Costume Fee will be $70 (for 2 costumes).
