Frequently Asked Questions

What do I wear?

The DPA Minnies Uniform is available to purchase via our website portal shop and pick up at reception. Own clothes are acceptable for a trial class or until you have purchased uniform as long as the uniform is purchased at earliest convenience. There will be a T-shirt available for Boys which can be worn with shorts.

What shoes do I wear?

Ballet shoes or jazz shoes can be worn for DPA Minnies to help protect little feet . Or they can have both if they would like.

Do parents watch classes?

Our experience shows that the learning environment is more effective when adults and siblings are not distracting the dancers in DPA Minnies. Our studio has a viewing/watching day each term which is a great way for parents to be a part of their child’s dancing experience and we encourage to come and watch on this day, last week of classes Term 1, 2 and 3.. 


Does my child get to perform?

All of our dancers have the option of participating in a demonstration showcase once a year. This year we held it at Newport Public School and our Minnies and their families had the best time.
