Code of Conduct

A Guide for Students and Parents
As a condition of enrolment at AMSD, students and their parents or guardians agree to abide by all the policies set forth by AMSD. AMSD reserves the right to terminate any student’s enrolment at any time for misconduct or inappropriate actions by either the student or his or her parent(s).

We take our roles as mentors and teachers in your child’s life very seriously. It is our objective to inspire a passion for the art of dance in every child who passes through our doors. In the process, we strive to set the right example and help your child (and you) create memories that will last a lifetime.

Our Philosophy

At Aspect Motion School of Dance we are aim to maximise the benefits for our students and their parents, whether it just be a fun after school activity, or a pathway to a career. We’re in the area of facilitating dance teaching and enjoyment, and above all, we are in the business of happiness. AMSD is committed to providing high-quality dance classes to enhance the overall development of the child. We provide a safe and positive environment to encourage our students to explore dance with qualified, nurturing teachers.

We believe that dance training encourages young people to develop a positive self-image as they increase awareness of their physical being. Along with improving coordination skills and developing muscular awareness, dance classes give children the freedom to express themselves through movement.

Our Values
At AMSD our values drive our business and inform all of our decision making.

  • Fun & Engaging: Our classes and activities are underpinned by this value. For students to derive the most benefit and learn they must enjoy what they are doing! Our pre-school and junior program is underpinned by the notion that children learn best through play.

  • Inclusive: We genuinely believe that dance is for everyone. We will work in partnership with parents and students to ensure that class placement is appropriate, and we deliver content in a way that meets the needs of learners.

  • Community: Aspect Motion School of Dance is a community; we foster supportive and nurturing connections amongst our staff team, families and students. We will always look for ways to engage our students and families in local activities that promote dance and our students. We believe that AMSD can contribute to the vibrancy and social fabric of the local community, particularly for young people.

  • Excellence: Staff are committed to ongoing training and development. Our professional associations with the Australian Teacher of Dance, Australian Irish Dancing Association and Acrobatic Arts ensure that we remain up to date with best practice. We will never stop learning!
