General information

Before booking a Dance Service, Clients should read these Terms and Conditions carefully. If Clients are unable to agree with the Terms and Conditions, they must not Book or attend the Dance Services. If, however, the Client agrees to the Terms and Conditions unconditionally, they may Book and attend the Dance Services subject always to these Terms and Conditions. Booking or attending Dance Services shall indicate the Client’s acceptance of the Terms and Conditions.

Dancebuzz 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 Services shall always by the version in force at the time the Dance Services were Booked.

Courses

The Client is required to Book and make full payment, no later than seven (7) days before the start date of the Course to secure a place on a course. Bookings made later than sever days before the start of a Course may be possible but are subject to availability. If the Course is NOT marked as "Sold Out" on the Site this means, a Client may still Book and attend.

Taster Classes

The Client is required to Book and make full payment on the Site (online) in advance of attending a Taster Class. Please note that spaces for Taster Classes are allocated on first come, first served basis and that Dancebuzz cannot guarantee last minute availability. The Client is advised to Book and make full payment a minimum of ten (10) days in advance; to secure a place. If the Taster Class is not marked as "Sold Out" on the Site, this means the Client may still Book and attend.

By Booking a Taster Class on a particular date, time and location the Client is deemed to have committed to this particular session and will NOT be able to make changes to the Booking. Dancebuzz is under no obligation to provide an alternative session should the Client be unable to attend the Taster Class Booked.

Dancebuzz requires a minimum number of Client Bookings in order to hold a Taster Class. If that minimum number of Clients is not achieved, Dancebuzz reserves the right to cancel the Taster Class and in this instance will provide a full refund or offer an alternative session.

Variations to Bookings

Clients should be aware that they are considered as committed once they have made a Booking for a particular Dance Service, on a particular date. In order to operate the Dance Services effectively, Dancebuzz relies on the commitment of its Clients to uphold their part of the agreement according to these Terms and Conditions. If a Client should need to change or amend a Booking it may have consequences for the business operation and therefore Dancebuzz is under no obligation to provide alternative Dance Services should the Client be unable to attend whatever the circumstances.

Cancellations and Transfers

Once Booked all Dance Services are non-refundable and non-transferable. This does not affect your statutory rights.

If you have booked the Dance Services less than 7 (seven) working days before their commencement date, you are deemed to have waived our statutory rights.

Dancebuzz requires a minimum number of Client Bookings for holding each individual Course. If that minimum number is not achieved by the day after the deadline for booking has expired, Dancebuzz reserves the right to cancel the Course and in this instance will provide a full refund or offer an alternative Course to attend.

Missed Classes and Courses

If a Client is unable to attend a Course for any reason it is unlikely that Dancebuzz will be able to offer an alternative session. If Dancebuzz are able to offer an alternative session and the Client chooses not to accept the alternative that is offered the the Client is NOT entitled to a refund. If the Client is aware that they will miss any sessions in advance of the start of a Course; Dancebuzz requests that the Client notify Dancebuzz at the time of Booking and we will endeavour to provide an alternative session. Please be aware that Dancebuzz is under no obligation to offer alternative or replacement sessions.

Private Lessons

Private lessons with any Dancebuzz dance instructor are arranged and booked in advance via online payment or a bank transfer. We do not accept cash payments and cheques on the day of the lesson.

Due to the individual nature of the booking Dancebuzz requires a minimum of three working days (Mon-Fri excl. Bank holidays) notice in order to cancel or transfer a private lesson with the studio and the designated instructor. Provided that enough notice is given, Dancebuzz will change your booking subject to availability of the instructor and studio space and will charge for any costs of the initial booking, e.g booking a studio space. If changes are required to be made less than three working days prior to the date set for the lesson, the client will be charged the full fee of the lesson plus the studio hire fee where applicable.

Paid fees for either one-off private lessons or block bookings are non-refundable neither partially nor in full 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.

Arriving late for a scheduled private lesson will result in reducing your session in accordance with that time.

Dance Workshops

Bookings for Dance Workshops should be made with as much notice as possible and with a minimum of ten (10) working days notice to allow securing a venue and a tutor for the Client's selected date. Bookings are confirmed upon receipt of full payment due not later than ten (10) working days before the date of the Dance Workshop.

Variations to Scheduled Courses

On some rare occasions it may be necessary to make alterations to the start date, time, teacher or venue locations of our Courses in order to operate our sessions effectively. All Clients will be notified of any such changes as soon as is reasonably possible. Any such change(s) shall not constitute a breach of contract and shall not give the Client the right to terminate the agreement.

If Dancebuzz are required to change the venue for a particular class due to circumstances beyond our control then we ask the Clients to be reasonable in accepting an alternative venue.

Dancebuzz will use reasonable endeavours to ensure that the venue shall be the venue indicated on the Site, but where this is not possible, Dancebuzz reserves the right to procure the use of other venue(s), provided that Dancebuzz shall give the Client notice of any such change(s) as soon as is reasonably possible. Any such change(s) shall not constitute a breach of contract and shall not give the client the right to terminate the agreement.

Dancebuzz will use reasonable endeavours to ensure that any individually named teacher(s) shall provide the relevant Courses, but where this is not possible, Dancebuzz reserves the right to procure the services of suitable alternative teacher(s), provided that Dancebuzz shall give the Clients notice of any such change(s) as soon as is reasonably possible. Any such change(s) shall not constitute a breach of contract and shall not give the Client the right to terminate the agreement.

Behaviour

In order to maintain the high standards of our Dance Services Dancebuzz reserves the right to refuse admission or participation to any Client who is deemed to be acting inappropriately. If a Client is excluded for unacceptable behaviour they will not be entitled to a refund.

Injury Waiver

By agreeing to these terms and conditions the Client hereby waives, releases and discourages all claims they may have against Dancebuzz for injuries of any manner from participation in the Dance Services unless they are a direct result of Dancebuzz negligence. The Client is obliged to seek medical advice before carrying out any exercise.
