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: Yes. We will not charge you for the trial class if you decide not to join.
DO WE PERFORM IN A SHOW: Yes all class age groups will perform in a big stage show at a professional theatre in Term 4.
WHAT IS THE PRODUCTION SEMESTER: At Pform.nz we package Term 3 & 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.
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.
CAN I STAY TO WATCH MY CHILD'S 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.
HOW MANY WEEKS IN THE TERM: This varies between 7-9 weeks and is dependent on the school terms and when holidays such as Easter falls in any given year.
DO YOU DISCOUNT CLASSES FOR SIBLINGS: No, all classes are the same cost.
DO YOU RUN CLASSES IN PUBLIC HOLIDAYS: No, we do not run classes on public holidays or public holiday weekends. Any classes missed can be made up at any of our other venues the week prior or after the class missed. Check out our timetable for other times and venues.
DO YOU REFUND FOR MISSED CLASSES: 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.
HOW DO I PAY: On our website with our online booking system. You set up your own account & create your unique login so you can always come in and manage your classes. Full payment is made at the time of booking & we have Laybuy for those wanting to extend the payment to 6 weekly installments.
IS THERE A WAITING LIST IF THE CLASS I WANT IS FULL: No we do not have waiting lists. If the class is full you will need to book a place into a different class.
