Hazlemere School of Dancing - Terms & Conditions

General Terms & Conditions

Completion of our school Registration Form enrols the pupil in the school (Hazlemere School of Dancing, also referred to as HSD), to attend the relevant classes for age/ability; as agreed, until at least half a term’s notice is given in writing. 

 

Fees are due the Sunday before each new term starts. Late payments will incur an extra admin charge. If fees have not been paid by the 3rd week of term, your child may be refused entry to class. Please contact us if you have a problem paying your fees.

We reserve the right to cancel classes, or use suitably qualified substitute teachers. If classes are cancelled, we will either make arrangements for alternative lessons, or reimburse you if a class can't be suitably re-arranged.

Refunds are not provided for student illness, injury, school trips, holidays etc. In the case of long term sickness or injury please contact us.

Please be aware that due to the nature of dance it may be necessary for the teacher to use appropriate physical contact when training young dancers. 

All information given is treated as strictly confidential and will only be accessible to HSD teaching staff and authorised personnel. We ask for your mobile number/email, so that we can contact you regarding school matters, or in case of an emergency in class. We require your child’s details to ensure they are placed in the correct class for their age/ability. If your child enters an IDTA exam, we will be required to pass their Name/DOB onto the IDTA. If your child takes part in our school shows, we may have to pass their names on to the following organisations for production purposes: Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead Council, Bucks County Council and Wizard Video Productions.

 

We have made steps to ensure all our data storage and handling falls in line with the new GDPR Legislation (May 2018) and will never sell, or share your data to any 3rd parties.
