RULES AND REGULATIONS AGREEMENT
From July 1 2006 The Belly Dance AML Golden Sands Studios wishes to advise all belly dance students
of the following:
Lesson Payments are to be exchanged at the beginning of the belly dance lesson or class and not at the termination of lesson unless a mutual agreement between student and teacher has been previously reached and made between both parties!
NB: Exemptions from the loss of lesson(s) in the 6 week lesson package will only be granted and applied when students:
|1||Are gravely ill with accompanying medical certificate|
|2||Face a very serious and unexpected emergency situation requiring immediate attention (eg. serious road accident, hospitalisation emergency)|
|3||Will have already notified the teacher via telephone or mobile or in person and made a mutual agreement at least 8 hours or more prior to the appointed lesson time whether to fulfil or postpone the appointment to another lesson within the week or following week. Both teacher and pupil – once aware of given reasons for uncertainties as to the attendance and completion of the lesson – will reach a mutual agreement and reappoint another suitable date and time.|
|4||Student Lateness!!! Belly Dance AML Golden Sands Studios also announces to students that when a student arrives late at the agreed appointed time of a belly dance lesson the belly dance teacher is not obliged to recuperate time for the student’s lateness.|
|5||The Belly Dance AML Golden Sands Studios also announces to students that when the teacher arrives late at the appointed belly dance lesson time the teacher will be obliged to complete the full 1 hour lesson duration.|
After the completion of 1 lesson or more of the “Private” or “Open” Group 6 lesson package there will be NO REFUNDS!!! should the student decide to discontinue class attendance. Each student is thereafter required to attend the remainder of lessons stipulated in the Group Lesson plan agreement ( ie. minimum 1 lesson or more attendances per fortnight ) Failure to attend the minimum of 1 class per fortnight (save the exception outlined in point number 2 above without prior notification of at least 8 hours or more) signifies the loss of 1 lesson from the Group Lesson Package.
NOTE: A student is only REFUNDED their money (on request) if it was payed in advance and the cancellation of their 6 lesson package occurs prior to the established date of the first lesson commencement. It is every student’s responsibility to ensure their presence at each exact given lesson date and time. Any lateness on the part of the student will entail NO EXTRA time to the group lesson duration. Lateness on the part of the Teacher/Organiser will not be examined or questioned. NOTE: The teacher’s lateness will neither influence nor detract from the students’ belly dance lesson time duration as the full hour will still be implemented and carried out.
In the One-to-One Private Belly Dance Tuition Programme students are required to pay for the services of tuition either at the commencement or completion of the lesson unless a different system of payment or settlement is agreed upon between teacher and student/student representative party(ies) before tuition services are commenced and exchanged.
CANCELLATION!!! of a Private Belly Dance Lesson appointment without prior notice of at least 8 hours or more of the agreed lesson time will require the payment of AU$30.00 whether completed or not completed. Refusal to pay on the part of the student owing will warrant Belly Dance AML Golden Sands Studios the right and authority to cease tuition services with the student individual.
FAILURE TO ATTEND!!! belly dance lesson appointment
without any prior notice of at least 8 hours or more of the agreed lesson time in the One-to-One Private belly dance Tuition programme will require the payment of AU$40.00.

Belly Dance AML Golden Sands Studios will also endeavour to find professional work for its students should any opportunities arise. The studio and Teacher/Organiser reserve all rights in selecting the appropriate belly dance applicant for the proposed work vacancy and will not be influenced by any external challenge or criticism in its final decision. The studio will be financially compensated after each job or repeated employment with a percentage % sum of the total gross or net amount (whichever in agreement between parties) forwarded to the performer representative by the employer.
If after the completion of the first lesson in the ‘Open and Private Belly dance Group Lesson’ categories, a student for some particular reason finds him/herself in a very serious and medically unfit state and is incapable of continuing the belly dance course package (eg. Major car accident, post-surgical withdrawal symptoms, hospitalising care conditions, etc.) then on request if desired by the student or student representative the Belly Dance AML Golden Sands Studios will refund the remainder of the uncompleted lessons . However this does not apply for Note: normal cold or flu virus sufferers or allergic sufferers. There will be no refund for missed or uncompleted lessons in these or similar cases or circumstances. The Teacher will make a decision according to each case whether some of the missing lessons may still be recuperated after bout of illness.
The Belly Dance AML Golden Sands Studios wishes to inform all booking clients (for belly dance performances) that on verbal confirmation or agreement or written confirmation
or agreement (eg. Email, telephone etc.) they have committed to the booking completely. Should the booking party alternatively cancel the booking at a later time and date betweenbooking date and leading up to prior booking time and date or decide to cancel during the performance then a cancellation fee of $100.00 plus G.S.T will apply immediately without delay either in cash, by direct deposit bank transfer, cheque or whichever other form of payment suited to booking client and the Belly Dance AML Golden Sands Studios. The Belly Dance AML Golden Sands Studios makes this condition very clear to all respective clients and wishes to inform all clients that this charge is reserved only to protect the business from lost possible bookings from other potential clients who could and might have possibly taken the same pre-booked time and day for their own event but lost the opportunity. Also a cancellation becomes a lost opportunity for the business itself. Performers also lose other possible bookings and other regular work (through organising replacements to cover for their absences at other appointments) in order to accommodate for a scheduled booking which has been cancelled. The Belly Dance AML Golden Sands Studios thanks all clients for their understanding and co-operation.
