Guidelines for taking part in dance or exercise classes
It is widely known that exercise is good for you and whilst our instructors are fully qualified and trained in the subject that they teach, we strongly recommend that you check with your doctor/specialist before starting any exercise programme particularly if you have any pre-existing health conditions such as
Arthritis or joint problems
High/Low Blood pressure
Headaches, Dizzy Spells or Fainting
Heart problems or chest pain
Lung or respiratory problems
Any other conditions that may be affected by exercise
If before or during your dance/exercise session you have any concerns about the nature of the class or require an alternative exercise to suit your health needs, please speak to the instructor immediately. In the case of Under 18’s a parent or guardian must undertake this responsibility to check with their doctor/specialist prior to starting any form of exercise should they have health concerns.
Please ensure that you wear appropriate clothing and footwear for the class you are taking part in.
Chewing gum is strictly prohibited at all times.
Please arrive on time for all classes. We may refuse admission if the warm up session has been missed.
Please turn off mobile phones
Food and drink is not permitted in the studios (except for water in adult classes)
The safety of children during dance classes is of paramount importance to us. Whilst your child is receiving tuition in a studio they are under the care of one of our teachers. However can we please remind parents that we are not responsible for the welfare of children at the following times
Whilst waiting for the class to be called into the studio
If the child asks to leave the class for a toilet break
If the class has an interval for refreshments
After the class has finished or whilst waiting between two classes if attending more than one
Please be aware of this should you choose to leave your child unattended at the centre.

Payments and cancellation policy
Due to the restrictions brought about by COVID-19, we are currently having to work with a big reduction on the number of places that we can offer in each class. Whilst we haven’t introduced any drastic price changes to these class places, we aren’t at this time, able to offer as much flexibility for cancelling or swapping bookings that cannot be attended. Please see below our current guidelines on this
PAY WEEKLY CLASSES (VIA THE STUDIO)
Unfortunately, we cannot offer any refunds or transfers on any pay weekly classes. If you cannot attend a studio class due to having to self-isolate, we will where possible offer a zoom connection to the class so that you can take part from home.
PAY WEEKLY CLASSES (VIA ZOOM)
Unfortunately, we cannot offer any refunds or transfers on any pay weekly zoom classes. If in doubt, please wait until the day of the class before booking your space.
Unfortunately, we cannot offer any refunds or transfers on any courses if the participant is unable to attend. If you cannot attend due to having to self-isolate, we will where possible offer a zoom connection to the class so that you can take part from home.
As a general rule across our studios, 24 hours-notice of cancellation must be given for all private lesson bookings.
If you are forced to self-isolate and unable to give the required notice of cancellation, our preferred solution would be to offer the lesson via zoom at the original lesson time. If the dance style isn’t appropriate for this then a ‘double-up’ on lessons on the week that you return would be appreciated. If neither of these options are feasible, we will waive the lesson charge.
If you can’t attend due to illness (COVID or none-COVID symptoms) and have to cancel without the required notice, we would kindly ask that you honour the lesson payment on the day of the booking. Depending on the circumstances of each cancellation, the teacher might consider, at their own discretion, offering some or all of this tuition time at another mutually convenient time.
Guidelines for team and competitive dance styles
All dancers that take part in a team or competitive dance style must take a twice yearly assessment in that particular dance style. Team members must pay for their place in the team regardless of attendance.
