Terms and Conditions
All classes subject to change. Bookings are subject to availability. All classes, courses and workshops must be prepaid in full prior to commencement. All full course bookings take precedence over drop-ins or makeups. Upfront prepaid bookings take precedence over inquiries or in-progress bookings. Unfortunately, we can no longer afford to offer payment plans due to an increase in ghosting behaviour.
Workshops - There are no refunds for Workshops. (Your workshop spot may be transferred to another student if the studio is contacted to arrange this with at least 24 hours notice).
Casual Classes - A booked class must be cancelled 12 hrs before the class to avoid any credit being used for the class.
Private Tuition - Payment must be made prior to your lesson. We require at least 12 hours notice to cancel and reschedule - there are no refunds for short notice or no-shows.
For Courses - full refunds (less a $50 cancellation fee) may be given if cancelled at least 7 days before the commencement of the course. We do not offer refunds for course bookings under any circumstances once a course has commenced. You may transfer your payment to another course within the same term if there are places available and if it is at least 24 hours before both courses are due to commence.
A casual class or drop-in may be cancelled by the studio if it does not have minimum numbers to run - you will receive as much notice as possible and a full refund of credits. A course may be cancelled by the studio if it does not have minimum numbers to run at the start of a term. You will be notified and will either be allowed to transfer to another course within the same term (if there is room) OR you can opt to receive a full refund. Full refunds are only granted if the studio has entirely cancelled a course.
Makeup classes are a courtesy and not guaranteed. No refunds are issued for missed classes (no shows). No makeup classes may be scheduled for missed casual classes where participant was not eligible for a refund. If you are going to miss a class that is part of your course, we need 24hrs notice to be able to schedule a makeup class of the same (or a lower) level and class type - there is a waitlist. Makeup classes cannot be arranged retrospectively. Makeup classes need to be pre-booked. Makeup classes are dependent on availability of a spot in a suitable class and time-slot. There are no makeup classes for missed makeup classes! Casual classes cannot be used as a makeup class, under most circumstances. Makeup classes cannot roll over into another term, they must be taken before the course you are booked in to has finished. We allow a maximum of 3 MUCs per term per course. Makeup classes can not be scheduled to be taken in Week 1 of a new term as booking numbers are not finalised, we contact all on the waitlist in Week 2 with availability.
Sometimes, it’s impossible to be on time. However, the first part of any of our classes is a warm-up that enables your body to perform at its best and to help prevent injuries. Students who miss the entire warm-up may be refused entry to the class for their own safety. If it’s your first class, it is especially important to arrive to least 5-10 minutes early to read and sign your paperwork without which you will not be able to take your class. No refunds or makeup classes are allowed for those who miss part of their class.
