Just reach out to us. We’re here for our dance family. Dance. Guaranteed.

Multiple course registrations must be completed in the same transaction (i.e. if you sign up for another course later, discount will not apply).

CANCELLATIONS

Numbers are very limited in our in-studio courses, and therefore no refunds or credits can be issued for cancelling your in-studio enrollment at any time, sorry 🙁 This includes change of mind, illness, pregnancy, pandemics, missed classes or drop-outs. However, if you complete the full course without missing any in-studio sessions, and are not satisfied for any reason, then a refund will be issued.

In the rare event that your teacher is unable to take a class (e.g illness) then a guest teacher will be arranged or the class may be cancelled. For any cancelled classes or courses by Studio J, a full refund will be given for the class/es affected.

MISSED CLASSES & ABSENCES

All sales are final and there are no refunds or credits for missed classes or absences. We encourage you to complete all sessions of your course as they are designed to progress week after week. However, we understand life happens, so we have mini recordings of your class, practice videos and group chats in place to make it easier for you to stay on track and get the most out of your course. Videos are accessible through online streaming and/or Studio J’s WhatsApp groups (you are added to your group the day course commences). Class recordings are available for the duration of the course only.

AGE REQUIREMENT

You must be over 18 years of age to participate in all our in-studio courses (excluding Kids Bollywood). Children aged 12+ can participate ONLINE in all other beginner level courses only (Intermediate, Advanced & Bolly-Heels & Bolly-Diva courses are not suitable). Enrolment must be completed in guardian/parent’s name.

CLASS PHOTOS & VIDEOS

Our teachers and some students occasionally take photos and videos during class, plus our courses finish with a professionally edited dance video. We may use any of this footage on our website, social media, and promotional material. If you don’t feel comfortable with this, then please let your teacher know at the start of the course and make sure you opt out of any photos or video filming during class. If you don’t tell us, we won’t know that you’re not ok with us using footage of you.
