Thank you for booking a trial class at Simply Ballet

You should have received a confirmation email for your booking.  (If you can’t find it – please check your spam folder).  This will have your class date, time and level.  There is also a link to complete any remaining details we might need before your trial class.

Here’s everything you need to know before coming to your trial class

Finding the Studio

Classes are held at King George Hall, 4A Koongarra Court, Magill 5072. There is free parking available onsite.  The closet bus stops are Stop 23 – Moules Rd, and Stop 24 – Glen Stuart Rd. 

Aim to get to the studio around 5-10 mins before the start of your class if possible, especially if you need to get changed.  There are toilets and changerooms onsite, but no showers.

Enter through the door closest to the car park, next to the sign.  Come through to the dressing room, which is the stage area of the hall – you can wait here if a previous class is still running.  If you’re feeling a bit nervous, watch our Welcome Video here

When it’s time for class, come down the stairs and into the studio.  Bring your bag into the dance studio with you, and don’t forget to silence your phone.

After class, your teacher can answer any quick questions, and we will get in contact in the following few days to see how your trial class went and answer any more questions you may have.  After class, please exit the hall via the side door.

What Do I Wear?

There is no official dress code in the Open Division at Simply Ballet – so, wear whatever you feel comfortable in.  If you already have dancewear, whatever combination and colour of leotard, skirt, tights/socks etc. you already have is fine.   Other people prefer gym or yoga wear.

If you don’t have any activewear – wear clothes that will allow your body, arms, and legs to move freely and doesn’t cover your feet such as shorts, leggings, or footless tights.  A Fitted T-shirt or singlet is fine, and cotton socks for your feet (not synthetic, as they are generally too slippery)

Ballet Shoes are available to purchase at the studio, but cotton socks are perfectly fine for your trial class. 


Hair should be be secured in a way that it will not move during class, especially during bending or turning movements.  This applies for both male and female students.  A ponytail is usually not sufficient for this so you may want to consider a bun, a braid with the end pinned up, or another style.  For medium length hair you can’t get into a ponytail, a headband is a great solution. 

If you don’t know how to do a ballet bun, that’s ok – wrap a ponytail around its own elastic a few times and secure with some bobby pins or another elastic.

Is there anything else I need to bring?

If your class is 1 hour or longer, we suggest having a water bottle to drink from.  Adults may also like to bring a hand towel if you’re worried about sweat.  In hot weather students are required to have their own drink bottle as per our hot weather policy.  Filtered water is available onsite.

COVID, Coughs, and Colds

Simply Ballet is a COVID-safe environment and at times has students in class who may be vulnerable to illness. 

Barres are cleaned between each class and hand sanitizer is available in all areas.  Please make use of hand sanitizer and wipes as needed.  Students are encouraged to wash their hands before and after class.  You are welcome to wear a mask in class if you want.

We ask that you do not attend class if you are unwell for any reason.  Just get in contact to reschedule your trial class.
