What classes do you offer?
GLM offers classes for all ages and experience levels. Styles offered include ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, contemporary and musical theatre.

What ages do you have classes available for?
We offer classes for ages 2 years old through to adults. At GLM we believe that dance is for everybody regardless of age, experience or ability.
Do you offer trials?
Certainly! We are always thrilled to offer new students a FREE trial class when they are considering enrolling with GLM. Existing students are also always welcome to book a trial for a new style! Click here to book a free trial.
What should I expect at my first lesson?
After entering our cosy waiting room a friendly teacher will invite you through to your class with a welcoming smile. You will be introduced to the class and shown the Studio and bathroom. During the lesson, you will have the opportunity to try out the class and get to know your teacher and fellow dancers. We want to make you feel as welcome and excited about dance as possible!
Your teacher will be sure to touch base with you or a carer in the days following your first lesson to discuss your experience and ensure the class is a good fit.
What is the cost of classes at GLM?
At GLM we believe dancing should be accessible. This is reflected in our fee structure through to our uniform and concert decisions.
Class fees work out as follows:
· 45 minute classes = $12.50 per week + GST
· 1 hour classes = $15.00 per week + GST
· 1.5 hour classes = $20.00 per week + GST
Class fees are invoiced per term and there is a 10% discount for students taking 4+ classes. A $20 annual enrolment fee also applies.
GLM Dance Studio proudly accepts Active and Creative Kids Vouchers towards class fees.

What do I wear?
At a trial class, you do not need to wear our uniform. Simply attend in comfortable clothes that you can dance in. Your teacher will advise you directly with the appropriate uniform for your class when you choose to enrol, and more information about GLM uniform can be found here.
What do I need to bring to my lesson?
Just a bottle of water, your best dancer attitude and your smiling face!
Can parents/carers watch classes?
Parents, carers and any other non-participating persons are not usually permitted in the dance room. We want to ensure all dancers are able to focus and receive the best experience possible at all times. We do, however, have a comfortable waiting room directly adjacent to the dance room where parents and carers are welcome to wait. (Tiny Tots classes are an exception to this practice).
Each year we hold an Open Week in Term 3 which offers an exciting opportunity for friends and family to see lessons in action!
Where is GLM located?
The Studio address is 6/65 Jersey Street Hornsby. Detailed directions and map can be found here.
Is there parking?
Yes, there is limited marked GLM parking outside our Studio.
