1. Descriptions

Specific descriptions and illustrations of our products and services on our website reflect, as far as possible, an accurate representation of the products and services that we offer. Photographs are intended to give a general idea or flavour of the dance style or the atmosphere of a typical event but do not form part of any contract between you and Dance Matrix Ltd or its suppliers. In all instances the specific manner of any teaching, training, coaching or the general running of an event may vary from location to location.

2. Definitions

Class - a teaching session for a group.

Personal Lesson - a personal teaching session with one teacher per individual or couple. This does not mean the exclusive use of the dance studio and its facilities and it is quite normal for other personal lessons to be in progress simultaneously.

Course - a series of consecutive classes.

3. Validity Period

Lessons or classes must be taken within 12 months of your payment or a surcharge, being the difference between the cost of the lessons or classes when booked and the cost of the lessons or classes when taken, may apply.

Bookings are usually valid for twelve months from the date of your payment or from the acceptance by Dance Matrix Ltd of your booking if in respect of a voucher issued by a third party.

The dance styles offered are the dance styles available at the appointed dance location and are subject to the dance coach's discretion with regard to suitability in terms of age, sex, ability and experience.

9. Activity timings

These are given as a guide only and you may be required to wait between different elements of the activity while another activity takes place.

If we cancel your activity, we will tell you as soon as possible, and do our very best to offer an alternative date or location. We reserve the right to cancel your activity at short notice and re-book you. We reserve the right to reschedule the timings or location of any activity owing to unavailability of the activity, insufficient numbers making the activity unavailable, and other factors beyond our control.

We reserve the right to discontinue an activity, venue, or individual supplier at our own discretion. We will endeavour to offer a suitable alternative activity of the same value, however, if not we will refund your payment in full. If you wish to exchange for an alternative activity of a higher value, you will be expected to pay the difference in price. We also reserve the right to make minor changes to your activity.

10. Choreographic Services

Bespoke choreography, eg. dancing from pop videos or films, or lengthy tracks of music may require considerable preparation and planning beyond the scope of a standard wedding dance package. It is strongly recommended that inexperienced dancers should discuss their preferences or requirements with their teacher in advance of their lessons.

In case of a problem, please speak to the supplier on the day, so they have the opportunity to resolve any problems there and then. Any other complaints should be addressed to Dance Matrix Ltd, who will take up the problem with the supplier on your behalf.
