Adult Dance Brighton Classes are operated by Shincrackers Ltd.
Before booking a Dance Class, Participants should read these Terms and Conditions carefully. These are the Terms and Conditions on which we agree to provide Participants with all Dance Classes. These terms and Conditions tell Participants how we will provide our Dance Classes to them, how Participants or we may change the contract between us, what to do if there is a problem and other important information. If Participants are unable to agree with the Terms and Conditions, they must not Book or attend the Dance Classes. We will not provide Dance Classes to Participants who do not agree to these Terms and Conditions. If, however, the Client agrees to the Terms and Conditions unconditionally, they may Book and attend the Dance Classes subject always to these Terms and Conditions. Booking Dance Classes or attending Dance Classes shall indicate the Client’s acceptance of the Terms and Conditions in full absolutely.
Shincrackers Ltd may amend these Terms and Conditions at any time by posting the amended Terms and Conditions on the Site. The version of the Terms and Conditions that applies to the Dance Classes shall always be the version in force at the time the Dance Classes were booked.
Private Lessons for Participants are required to be agreed, arranged, and booked by Participants in advance via online payment or a bank transfer. Shincrackers Ltd does not accept cash payments and cheques from Participants for payment on the day of the Private Lesson. To secure the Client’s booking(s), payments need to be made in full at least 7 (seven) working days prior to the Client’s requested date(s). Payments made less than 7 (seven) working days prior to the Client’s requested date(s) the Private Lesson will be transferred to the following week at the sole discretion of Shincrackers Ltd.
Due to the individual nature of the booking Shincrackers Ltd requires a minimum of 7 (seven) working days notice in order to transfer a private lesson with the studio and the designated Shincrackers Ltd instructor. Provided that the sufficient notice is given, Shincrackers Ltd will change a Client’s booking subject to availability of the Shincrackers Ltd instructor and studio space and will charge for all and any ancillary and administrative costs associated with the initial booking, (including but not limited to booking a studio space for example). If changes are required to be made with less than the required notice prior to the date set for the Private Lesson, then the Client will be charged the full fee of the Private Lesson plus the studio hire fee where applicable and any other associated and ancillary and administrative costs These costs shall be invoiced to the Client.
Paid fees for either one-off Private Lessons or block bookings are non-refundable in whole or in part and it is the Client’s responsibility to book all sessions at the times provided as available for the designated instructor and the studio space.
For the avoidance of doubt if a Client arrives late for a private lesson which therefore results in a reduction of the time available for the Client’s Private Lesson then no reduction in the fee levied by Shincrackers Ltd for that private lesson will be given due to less time being made available for the Client because of their late arrival.
Bookings by Participants for Dance Workshops must be made with a minimum of fifteen (15) working days prior notice to allow for the securing of a venue and a tutor for Shincrackers Ltd’s or the Client’s selected date. Bookings for Participants are confirmed only upon receipt of full payment from the Client due not later than fifteen (15) working days before the date of the Dance Workshop.
Online dance classes take place via the Zoom app. An email address and phone number must be provided by the Client for the teacher to contact them on. All online dance classes MUST take place on a secure wifi connection to ensure the Client and teacher are protected from hacking and they have privacy.
