CBCC’s receptionist, Penny Garner, is a mum of an ex CBCC dancer (pictured here) and highly knowledgable about all things ‘dance school’. Penny is able to answer general questions, receive payments and fit new and second hand uniform leotards and shoes.

Registrations are to be completed online where possible. New students are then enrolled into classes by the Director. Continuing students re-enroll themselves at the end of each year, more information is emailed to families early in term 4.

All queries of a personal nature are to be forwarded to Lorraine Bennett, Director -

All financial queries to be forwarded to Maria Linkenbagh, Administrator -

For the first two weeks of first term and the first week of remaining terms, Reception will be open Monday-Friday from 3:30-5:45pm (from 2pm on Thursday) and Saturday 8:45-12:00 noon.

For the remainder of each term Reception will be open at the following times:

  • Tuesday 3:30-5:45pm
  • Wednesday 3:45-5:45pm
  • Thursday 3:30-5:30pm
  • Friday 3:30-5:45pm

New items may be purchased by cash, cheque or direct debit, payment to be made the day the goods are received. Second hand items are payable by cash only. Unfortunately we are not able to lend items or put items 'on hold'.

Manual payment may be made anytime classes are held. If reception is closed or quite busy you’re welcome to enclose your payment and invoice in an envelope or clearly write your child's name and payment details on the front of the envelope and ‘post’ in the safebox attached to the wall above reception desk. We have spare envelopes on the wall opposite the reception desk. Exam/Show return slips etc may also be 'posted' throughout the year.

To leave second hand items there is a drop chute in the reception desk wall - please label with student's name and price, or we can price for you. N.B. CBCC sells second hand goods as a free service to current CBCC families, departing families are welcome to collect unsold items. As we do not keep a record of second hand items received, families leave items at reception at their own risk, CBCC will not refund 'lost' items.

All sales will be written up in the second hand book. Please see Penny to see if items have sold.
