Your health 

In attending our classes, we trust that you are in good health and that you know of no medical or other reason why you cannot or should not engage on activity or passive exercise. Our staff and contractors are not medically trained or qualified to assess if you are in good physical condition. If you have any doubts, we strongly urge you to seek expert advice before starting classes with us.

Waiver: You understand there are specific risks of physical or property damages, losses, or injury that may result from your participation with Dance Salsa Manly classes, and you voluntarily assume the risks associated with such participation.

Allowing us to use your image

We sometimes film and/or photograph classes, parties and other activities. It is possible that you will appear in these materials.

OUR FEES

Can we increase your fees?

Our fees are displayed on the website. In case of discrepancy of fees displayed on the website and via any other channel of communication, the fees advertised on the website must be considered the correct ones.

We reserve the right to increase our fees at any time without notice.

We will make a reasonable effort to inform you and all students of any increase of fees in advance via email. If we don’t hear from you, we will consider that you have agreed with the new fees.

CANCELLATIONS & REFUNDS

As a general policy we do not make refunds as when one class / course is sold out then your booking stops others from participating. If we can resolve the situation by allowing another person to take your place then a refund may be organised but not promised. Please understand that dance classes are difficult to organise refunds compared to a business selling products that can be exchanged. You cannot exchange a school’s or teacher’s time once the class / course has started.  

If you miss a class or social dance we cannot make this up with another future class as the next class or course is likely to have different content due to our rolling syllabus plans and the fact that future classes may be full.
