Enrolment Form Terms and conditions

Welcome to Liberty School of Dance!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in the school. We hope your son/daughter has enjoyed their trial session. If you would like to enrol for classes, please could we kindly ask you to read through, complete the enrolment section and then sign the terms and conditions below:

Whilst every effort is made to maintain the highest levels of safe practice within the dance studio, please be aware that the nature of dance being a physical activity can incur some risk of injury.

In the very rare event of an injury, first aid will be administered by the teacher in charge or in the event of a more serious accident, an ambulance will be called and the parents will be notified as soon as possible.

Liberty School of Dance employs the highest standards of teaching and as a result, there is often the need for some physical contact in the correct teaching of dance technique. Contact is always made in a highly professional manner and is completed as quickly as possible with consideration for safeguarding at all times.

This is to ensure that the movements are learnt safely and correctly. It is imperative that our dancers are all taught safely and effectively. Please note that in the current climate of the coronavirus pandemic, physical contact has been temporarily eliminated as a teaching method in order to minimise risk.

All new students are offered a free trial, followed by two weeks of pay as you go classes, to ensure that your son/daughter is happy with their chosen class. After this point, we kindly ask that you pay for the remainder of the term.

All fees are paid for a term in advance. There are three terms in the academic year, which generally follow the school calendar for the London Borough of Hounslow. We honour all the half terms, beginning on the Monday of each half term unless otherwise stated. (Therefore, the Saturday for half term will generally always be the second Saturday in the week.) Terms are generally 11 – 13 weeks in length.

Liberty School of Dance reserves the right to make changes to the timetable on a termly basis. Please note that while there may be some slight alterations to class times from one term to the next, we do everything possible to maintain as much continuity as possible.

Once your child is settled into their class, it is requested that the correct uniform is purchased. This can be done through the school or you are welcome to source it yourself, but in doing so, we ask that it matches the school’s regulation wear.

Correct grooming is an important part of the discipline of dance. We kindly ask that hair is tied off the face and into a bun and that correct footwear and leotards are worn at all times.

If you wish to cease your child’s classes at the school, please do so by writing to us before a new term begins.

Refund policy

Unfortunately, we cannot offer any credit or refund for student illness or absence. Terms must be paid for in full by the third week of each new term.

In the event of teacher illness, a cover teacher will run the class. If this is not possible, the classes will be moved to an alternative date. If this is still not possible, you will be refunded or your account will be credited.

Please see the parent waiver in relation to Covid-19 for more information regarding refunds in the event of a lockdown.
