Creative story telling, explore make believe characters, use costume and mask, learn dance, hip hop, contemporary, creative movement, scripts, plays and poems, act out the best children’s literature, film and screen, voice, speech, prepare show items, hone performance skills.

What do I wear?

Black leggings, shorts or trousers that are appropriate to perform in (NOT JEANS) and a Performance.net top which you purchase when you first book a class.

What are the age ranges?

4-7 years, 7-10 years, 10-13 years, 13-18 years, Adults


Why the overlap in ages: Some 7 year olds stay with the younger group until they are 8 and others move up the minute they turn 7. Being 7 is a critical time in a child's life and it is important from an educational perspective that a child can be in the group that best suits them as individuals at this age. If you're not sure, our tutors will happily give you their professional feedback and we can make the decision togetherThe other two critical ages in childhood are 10 and 13 so we have overlapped these age bands as well. It is important during these significant times in a childs journey that they train with a group that suits their social and emotional level.

How are classes run?

With profesionalism and positivity. Our teachers weave their magic by inspiring you  to learn. Each lesson is designed with a specific Learning Objective. We are an education based company with years of EDUCATION experience and qualifications behind us.

Can we trial a class?

We do recommend that you book in advance to avoid missing a place. If you want to wait and trial a class then you may need to change the venue if the class is already full. By the time we hit week 4 in Term 3 all classes are closed to new enrolments for the rest of the year while we weave our magic and build our stage items for the end of year shows. Remember too that there is never any risk to enrol; all new enrolments are covered by the Directors Personal Guarantee. If after coming to and participating in the first four sessions, you are not happy with the Pform.nz experience, we will graciously refund you in full. Note that you must attend all four consecutive sessions to be eligible for the refund and the refund is not available for the Full Year Promo Pack which is a non-refundable Promotion.

Do we do a show?

Yes all class age groups will perform in a showcase in Term 4 except for the Adult classes.

What is the Production Semester Package?
At The Performance.net we package Term 3 and Term 4 together into our Production Semester which ensures the quality of the show items due to the fact that we have all of the performers' commitment to both terms. You do pay for the full Production Semester at the beginning of Term 3 which gives you your performance classes for Term 3, Term 4 and the Production Fee. Classes run right through until mid December and the shows are in November.

 

Can we join part way through a term?

Terms 1 & 2: You can join anytime during Terms 1 or 2. We sell our classes on a term basis and you are welcome to make up any classes missed at any of our other venues.

Terms 3 & 4: No, these are our Production Preparation terms so we do not take new clients after week 4 in Term 3.
Adults can join anytime during Terms 3 &4 as they do not perform in a show at the end of the year.

Can we stay to watch a class?

Of course you can! The first time you introduce your child to us, you will want to stay to observe us in action. After that, you are welcome to stay and watch but remember that the students get the best value out of these classes when there are no distractions. We are a strong education based company and the classes are about the children, the learning objectives and the pedagogy. Sometimes parents and younger siblings can inadvertently break the focus and compromise the professionalism, which we guard passionately. We thank you in advance for respecting the learning process.

What is the C.I.A. session?
This is our C.I.A. or Class In Action session is on the last class of Term 1 and the last class of Term 2. We do not run a C.I.A. in Term 3 as this is our show preparation term. Our Class In Action week is so much fun and we love to see Parents, Grandparents and siblings along to join in and observe. During this time we run our classes in the usual way and explain why we tackle various activities. The ‘big idea’ is to let you see what we do and how we do it. More importantly though the students share their efforts with an audience, albeit a very friendly one. We invite you to enjoy this session.

Do you refund for classes missed?

No, classes are sold on a term, semester or full year basis, not on a class by class basis. If you miss a class for any reason be it a public holiday, sickness or Nana's 80th Birthday, you are able to make up a class at any of our other venues. Check out our timetable for other times and venues.

The class I want to book is full - can I go onto a waiting list?
No we do not have waiting lists. If the class is full you will need to book a place into a different class. We have many classes on offer each week and there will be another class close to you. Email our friendly office staff for advice on alternative classes if you need help.
