- Students are required to complete an enrolment form when commencing classes with DiLi. This information is required for administrative and safety purposes.
- DiLi reserves the right to change class times, change teachers or cancel classes if necessary.
- Re-enrolment will occur at the end of each term to give current students the option to re-enrol for the next term before places are open to new students. Full payment will be required before the school holidays to guarantee your child’s place for the following term.
- Forms can be scanned and emailed to email@example.com, posted to DiLi at PO Box 2263, Mount Isa QLD 4825, or handed to the teacher in an envelope with the student’s name on the front.
- Class places are only held until the due date for payment. Any students who have not formally re-enrolled by this date risk losing their class place to new students and those on waiting lists.
- If you would like to book in for any additional classes or would like to change class style or day, please check availability first by emailing Sally at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Refunds will not be given for term fees or deposits as your child has taken a term place, however term fees will be adjusted to allow for any classes cancelled by DiLi.
- All fees are payable in advance. Please let DiLi know if you are having difficulties paying fees, as payment plans can always be arranged in special circumstances. All payments (except for casual payment for adult classes which must be paid in cash on the day) can be made either via cash or direct deposit. Any accounts that are unpaid by the end of the second week of term may result in students losing their class place.
- Payments made by direct deposit can be made to the following account: Bank: CBA, Account Name: DiLi, BSB: 064 815, Account Number: 1047 8514
DiLi does not have specific uniform requirements, but instead has a range of optional uniform items and encourages its students to wear dance gear of their choice that is appropriate to the style of dance they are participating in. It is our hope that this allows students to feel comfortable and allows parents to keep costs down. CLICK HERE to find out more about our uniform.

Parents Can Watch Classes
That’s right! At DiLi, all our classes are open, which means parents are welcome to watch anytime! We don’t mean the last five minutes and we’re not talking watching through a viewing window. At DiLi parents are greeted with open arms!
Currently, the old dance school philosophy of keeping parents out of the studio as a general policy just doesn’t sit right. As a parent, we believe it is important that you can see how the teacher interacts with your child. To see how your child is dancing and progressing and to see how the students in the class get along.
Each class at DiLi follows a standard format and lesson structure, but our parents understand that when working with little ones, sometimes things don’t go according to the lesson plan and other days our little ballerinas ‘perform’ to perfection. But this is part of the honesty.
We do have some rules for parent watching so that all students can get the most out of each lesson:
- Please remain quiet while the class is in progress so as not to distract the dancers.
- Mobile phones are to be switched to silent.
- Parents are asked to sit in the designated seating areas and not in the dance space for safety reasons.
- We love little brothers and sisters watching too! We do ask however, that they remain quietly seated and not participate in classes.
- Still photography of your own ballerina is welcome, however video, DVD or mobile phone recording of the whole class is strictly prohibited unless consent has been given by all parents.
End of Year Concert
DiLi will be holding its 2018 end of year Showcase at the Mount Isa Civic Centre on Sunday 2nd December starting at 2.00pm, with a dress rehearsal on Sunday 18th November and a technical rehearsal at the theatre on Sunday 25th November. The concert is held early afternoon (rather than in the evening) to suit families with young children. What is a showcase? Great question!! A showcase is just another way of saying concert – it is the end of year performance that gives our students the opportunity to show off their talents to family, friends and the local community.
The end of year DiLi Showcase is open to all students from Kinder Dance up to Senior classes, however this event is not compulsory and students are welcome to continue attending classes during term four even if they decide not to be part of the end of year showcase event. Adult classes are not included in the end of year Showcase 🙂
