Hip Hop Dance & Music School
Term 4 2023
Welcome back to another Term here at Zion Studios and a huge welcome to all the students starting for the first time!
We hope everyone has had a good break and are ready to get stuck into something active, positive, and fun! Our Team here at Zion cannot wait to get back into it this term and to end the year off on a high!
Term 4 starts today, Monday 9th October.
Please remember that it is a Public Holiday on Monday 23rd October, and there will be a make-up class for Harmony, Offset and Noiz on Friday the 27h of October.
All payments must have been made or payment plans underway by the Friday 13th of October. If you have not made a payment or communicated with us regarding a payment plan by Friday 13th October, your child may not be able to continue the term, or their spot may be given to someone on the waitlist.
Please arrive at-least 5 minutes before your class starts.
All students must have a drink bottle with them.
Must wear appropriate clothes to move/dance in. e.g.- Lace up shoes, shorts/T-shirt
Parents are only allowed to watch the last 10 minutes of class.
Beginner (4.00pm classes) classes finish at 4.50pm as the last 10 minutes is left available for communications & allows the Teacher to get sorted for their next class.
You do not have to wait until a new Term to register for these, you can start them up at any time, however we would suggest booking a lesson in as soon as possible just so you can get a timeslot that works best for you!
As there are limited spots, they get snapped up pretty quick!
So, if you have been thinking about taking some vocal or instrument lessons, jump on this opportunity!
These classes are for adults and kids and like our dance classes, they are done in a fun and safe environment!
firstname.lastname@example.org to book your spot!

This is a busy building with several people and organisations using it, not just from our studio or Northcity church. It is open to people to come and go and the café area is not a secure area to leave belongings. Please ensure your child always keeps their belongings with them and takes responsibility for their own stuff. If you have lost an item, please ask to be directed to the lost property bin.
We have a website that holds a lot of valuable information, so please utilise that. If you have any suggestions for things that would be useful to you to have on the website, please let us know. If you are unable to find answers to your questions, please email us.
