Terms & Conditions
Please read our company’s Terms and Conditions carefully prior to booking any class, course, party, event or first dance tuition. Bounce Studios Ltd cannot be held responsible after the event for any errors caused by failure to read or understand them in full. The terms and conditions will differ slightly for each different type of event. Please ensure that you have read the relevant section. By making a deposit payment, you are agreeing to the below.
For party bookings we require a £30 non refundable (administration) deposit to secure your booking. All payments and numbers must be finalised at least four weeks before the party date. The instructor cannot take any money from clients on the day of the event.
A minimum of four weeks notice prior to the party date is required to cancel a party, from which you will receive a refund of the balance minus any other costs incurred in relation to your booking. Cancelled parties within four weeks are non-refundable. Once full payment has been received no refunds can be made for any persons who cancels for any reason.
All session times include changing, our instructors introduction, a warm up and cool down. Any medical conditions / pregnancy should be addressed with the instructor before any event or class due to the physical nature of this activity. Pregnant participants are advised to seek the advice of their GP before taking part in a class. Participants take part at their own risk.
A £30 non-refundable (administration) deposit payment is required to secure the booking. A minimum of 72 hours notice prior to lesson commencement is required by the couple to cancel / re-schedule a lesson. All deposits are non-refundable, along with any costs that have been incurred by Bounce Studios prior to your tuition. Bounce Studios cannot guarantee that new dates will be available to suit both parties. Cancelled lessons within 72 hours notice & rescheduled lessons are non-refundable.
Bounce Studios do not refund payment if:
The client decides they are unhappy with their choreographed routine at the end of the lessons. Note: The routine will evolve over the course of the lessons. This will be in conjunction with the client and so it is not possible for the client to be unhappy with their routine.
The client decides not to continue the lessons half way through the booking for no other reason or if the wedding is cancelled.
Please be aware that Bounce Studios Ltd reserve the right to terminate a party if any/all participants appear to be under the influence of alcohol or other substances, as this poses a serious health and safety risk. In most instances, alcohol consumption is forbidden in and around the vicinity of the venue. If a venue finds you to be in possession or under the influence of alcohol or other substances, they may take the decision to terminate your class. No refunds will be available under any circumstances in relation to the above.
Property & Venues
Any props used within parties (e.g. pom poms) are the property of Bounce Studios and must be returned to the instructor at the end of the session.
Parties will be held in either a dance studio, gym studio, function room or a community hall. Only the space for the lesson can be used, and participants are asked to respect the venue in its entirety. Participants must not tamper with any equipment in the studio/room, the studio/room building or en-route to the studio/room.
Participants must all be over 18 if their party is held in a bar, and you should consult with Bounce Studios regarding younger participants taking part in studios. If, within any group bookings there are found to be prospective participants who are under age, we reserve the right to request their removal from the party without refund.
We cannot make changes to dates or times once your booking has been confirmed.
Occasionally due to circumstances beyond our control, we must reserve the right to change the start times, dates, or venue locations previously established for your class, course, party, event or first dance tuition. We will endeavour to find a replacement instructor or venue, however for parties where we cannot meet your needs, we will offer a full refund.
In the unlikely event that Bounce Studios needs to cancel your booking for any reason, you will be notified as soon as possible.
In the event that we are unable to re-schedule your party we will be happy to offer you a refund.
If you cancel your party and are unable to attend your event due to unforeseen circumstances (ie. Illness, travel issues, weather conditions or any other events out of your control) we regret that no refunds can be given.
Health and Safety
By making a booking with Bounce Studios Ltd, you are confirming the following on behalf of yourself and your participating group members:
- A doctor has never said that you or anyone in your group has a heart condition and recommended only medically supervised activity.
- You or anyone in your group has never had chest pains brought on by physical activity.
- You or anyone in your group has not developed chest pains in the last month.
- You or anyone in your group does not lose consciousness or fall over as a result of dizziness.
- You or anyone in your group does not have a bone or joint problem that could be aggravated by exercise.
- A doctor has never recommended medication for you or anyone in your group in relation to blood pressure or a heart condition.
If you have answered no to all of the above, you have reasonable assurance that you and all participants are suitable for taking part in dancing as exercise.
You are also confirming that no-one in your group suffers from any other medical conditions that your instructor should be aware of (including pregnancy, recent birth and any minor operations). If there are any pre-existing health conditions, these must be confirmed in writing to Bounce Studios a minimum of 5 working days prior to your class. The class instructor must also be notified at the beginning of the session.
Furthermore, you must at all times follow the instructions issued by our teachers, who are trained to be mindful of your health and safety throughout the duration of the class. Any failure to follow instruction will automatically invalidate your insurance in the event of any injury you sustain as a consequence of this failure. Similarly, failure to follow the advice of your own GP will also render your insurance invalid for the purpose of claims.
