Am I automatically signing up by submitting an online enquiry? Will I have pay to apply?
No. There are a few steps to work through before becoming a READY SET DANCE licensee. Once you submit an enquiry, keep an eye on your email. Depending on the trade area availability for your studio, you will either be sent an Information Pack or a Waitlist Application form. Be sure to check your junk mail folder as sometimes the email can end up there. No money is exchanged until you’ve been successful and accepted.

Ready Set Dance, Ready Set Ballet, Ready Set Acro & Ready Set Move varies in price. Please complete an online application to receive an Information Pack outlining the costs involved.

Do I have to deliver all programs or can I select just one program?
Ready Set Dance, Ready Set Ballet and Ready Set Acro licences are available to purchase separately, however the Ready Set Move program is only offered to Studios that run Ready Set Dance and/or Ready Set Ballet and/or Ready Set Acro. It cannot be Licensed on its own.
What if I have multiple studio locations
Studios wanting to deliver the program in multiple locations benefit from paying only one upfront program fee. However, additional locations incur additional monthly fees.
Do you Train my teachers? Who pays for training? where do my teachers go for training?
Ready Set Dance offer three level training programs for student teachers, new teachers and experienced Ready Set teachers. Teachers are encouraged to pay for their own training as part of their professional development. Training prices and certification periods vary depending on the program and level.
Training is delivered online as a 2-step process – review of prerequisite material followed by an online dance assessment component and activation session with Ready Set Dance Directors and/or Head Trainers.
How long will it take to become a READY SET licensee?
Typically, studios sign on within 2 weeks of applying. This time frame varies according to Studio Owners availability for the first telephone call, return of licence agreement paperwork and payment of the program fee invoice. Please be mindful that we are unable to ‘hold’ trade areas for studios and a trade area is not locked in until after the upfront payment has been received.

Can I source my own props and uniforms for the program?
