The Ballet Twins Studio - T&Cs
The Ballet Twins Group Classes and Private Classes Terms & Conditions; the boring bit but oh so important.
Our Classes are supplied by The Ballet Twins Studio and Instructor associates of The Ballet Twins Studio and subject to the following express terms.
Interpretation & Variation In these Terms, “we”/ “us”/ “our” means The Ballet Twins Studio, and “you”/ “your”/ “yours” means you, the Client.
We reserve the right to vary and revoke the Terms and Conditions from time to time when it may be considered necessary or desirable for the regulation of our services and the conduct/experience of Clients. Any such changes will be notified to Clients and, until revoked, will be binding upon Clients.
Instabook System. We use the Instabook business management booking system (“System”) for online appointment scheduling, sales, resource and client management.
The System may be accessed online, directly or via our website.
Class Packages are credits that can be used to reserve a place in a Class.
Details of Class Packages and Credits and their validation are available via the website.
Online payments are accepted by credit/debit card, or a positive Account balance can be used where applicable. Classes cannot be attended unpaid, and accounts cannot be settled after Class. We may use payment card details held on file with Instabook to clear a negative Account Balance or other monies owed.
Class Packages are non-refundable and non-transferable, except as per the conditions below.
Class Packages have varying lengths of validation depending on the Package purchased. See our website (Instabook) or your Receipt Notes for details.
As published on the System and/or website, clients should note any Studio closure times to ensure that sufficient time is given to use any unexpired Class Packages, particularly over the Summer or Christmas/New Year. Expired Class Packages cannot be refunded or re-validated.
By proceeding to make a Reservation with us using our online service, you confirm that you have read these Terms and agree to be bound by them.
You can only reserve in advance with the pre-purchase of a Class Credit or Package.
Reservations are made on a first-come, first-served basis, and where a Class meets its maximum capacity, we reserve the right to refuse admission.
Reservations will be confirmed by email.
Attending without a Reservation
You can only attend a Class with the pre-purchase of a Class Credit or Package.
If the Class is full, you may join the Waiting List for a Class. After this time, you will be added directly to the Class list if there is space.
Waiting List. If your chosen Group Class or Private Class is full at the time of booking, you will have the option to be added to a waiting list. If a place becomes available, you will be contacted by phone or email to confirm your place. By agreeing to join a class at any time prior to the commencement of the Class, you will then be subject to the same cancellation policy as detailed below; You will still be charged if you cancel outside the permitted cancellation windows.
You cannot join a Waiting List that overlaps an existing reservation.
Cancellation by You
All Private Classes are subject to a 12-hour cancellation policy, and if you fail to cancel before 12-hours of the commencement of your scheduled Class (“Early Cancel”), you will be charged the full amount as a “Late Cancel”. All Group Classes are subject to a 12-hour cancellation policy, and if you fail to cancel before 12-hours of the commencement of your scheduled Class (“Early Cancel”), you will be charged the full amount as a “Late Cancel”.
If paying per Class, you will be charged the price of a Class.
Cancellations will be confirmed by email.
Classes start promptly at the scheduled time, so please arrive early to sign in and change if necessary. If you have not shown up within 5 minutes of the start time of your scheduled Class, you will be considered a Late Cancel and be charged the full Class fee but will not be permitted to participate in the Class. This ensures that those wishing to attend a Class without Reservation have the opportunity to take the Class.
The Class will be taken at the Instructor’s discretion if you arrive late, but you may not join a Class in any circumstances 10 minutes after commencement. This is for your safety and the experience of other participants.
If you do not show up to your Reserved Class, you will automatically be charged as a Late Cancel as above.
Cancellation by Us
Where we need to cancel and/or change the time of a Class, we will give as much notice as possible. In this instance, you will be contacted by email and your account re-credited accordingly.
