CANCELLATION OF PRIVATE LESSONS – We ask for a minimum of 24 hours’ notice of cancellation otherwise the lesson must be paid for. This is to allow us time to rebook the slot.

Private lessons must not be cancelled by email as we are not able to access emails in the studio. Please phone or text to cancel. We will confirm that we have received your message, if you do not hear from us please contact us again.

Parking is on the main road or in the side streets. Please do not park on the garage forecourt, in the bus stop or down the lane next to the studio.

Clothing – We want you to feel comfortable so we advise that you wear layers, the studio is an old granite building it can be cold in the winter. There are coat hooks in the hallway please use these especially if your coat is wet. Please ensure that you take any valuables into the ballroom with you.

Shoes – For your own safety we recommend that you bring a change of shoes especially if it’s raining as damp soles can affect your movement on the dance floor. 
Both men & ladies should not wear rubber soled shoes or trainers as you don’t want to stick to the floor. Boots are not suitable as they restrict ankle movement.
Ladies should wear the height of heel they are comfortable in but not sling back shoes or wedges.

If you decide that dancing is for you then it is worth investing in proper dance shoes, they have suede soles so you can feel the floor better but they cannot be worn outside. I have a supplier in this country that I deal with, I keep some in stock and can order others as required. If you are interested, we can discuss shoes with you.

Partners – If you come as a couple, you will not be asked to dance with anyone else but myself or my staff may ask to dance with you if we feel it will help you. We will not take offence if you prefer that we don’t. We use hand sanitizer between dancing with pupils and each other.

Please read the terms & conditions below before booking your class. A completed booking form and payment will mean that you agree to the terms & conditions.
