how do the ages work? 

at pform.nz we recognise that all children are unique, as such they develop at different rates but here is simply a rough estimate of what each age category looks like  

mini: 4 -7 year-olds        primary: 5-9 year-olds        intermediate: 8-13 year-olds        senior: 12-18 year-olds


what do we wear?

our standard, mandatory uniform comprises pform.nz leggings or shorts and a pform.nz top. we have a range of new, additional merch being released in 2021! you can wear any of these pieces to class, too.


can we trial a class?

yes, we will not charge you for the trial class if you decide not to join. 


how much are classes?

our standard classes are $179 per term | auditioned troupes & theatrre co's are $338 per term


are there any extra costs?

$72 production fee in term 3 | uniform cost | ticket cost to shows (not for your performer, they are backstage the whole time)


are there sibling or multiple-class discounts?

no, all classes are the same cost.


how do shows work?

every year, we hold several shows at the bruce mason centre & the vodafone events centre. your class will get to perform in one of these shows. rehearsals take place during class hours. we simply run one dress rehearsal on the day of the show...no need for parents to battle traffic and attend long rehearsals for days on end!

we begin our in-class rehearsals in term 3. because of this, Terms 3 & 4 (our 'production semester') must be booked together to ensure your commitment to the entire show process. our show process is EASY and FUN. we never require parent help, you simply drop your performer to the show and come back in a few hours to watch!

we provide all costumes and production elements. as such, we charge a small production fee as part of the terms 3 & 4 booking process. you will not be able to pick-up your child right after they perform. our H&S procedures are very strict in making sure all students stay backstage for the entire show.


do you offer refunds for missed classes?

No, classes are not sold on a class by class basis. If you miss a class for any reason (public holiday, sickness, or Nana's 80th Birthday), you are able to make up a class at any of our other venues unless we are in our show season rehearsals. 

what happens to the classes we miss for Covid lockdowns?

we operate 'pform virtual' during levels 3 & 4 lockdowns. this comprises weekly live zoom classes, the pform network & cli studios training. we operate our venues face to face at levels 1 & 2.

what if we have no prior experience?

All our regular Pform classes are distinguished by age and tailored to Beginner/ Intermediate level performers, so no worries if you have no experience! If you are looking for an Advanced curriculum, check out our Confidence Project programs, where we run troupes, crews, theatre companies, glee clubs and competition squads.
