We take your privacy seriously. When you register for a course, we ask you for your name, email address and telephone number. We also keep track of which courses you have already registered for with us. We collect the personal details you share with us to keep you updated on our lessons and events, which means we can tell you about things like changes to the lesson schedule; point out interesting events you might like or send you lesson recaps. We will not pass on your contact details or personal information to any other party. If you want to review, or have us change or delete the personal data we have collected, please just send us an email and we will gladly oblige.
Occasionally, we may take pictures during our classes for promotional purposes. We will always inform you whenever we do. If you would rather not be included on any photo, we will make sure not to use any image of you on our website, Facebook page or anywhere else.
We value a safe and relaxed learning environment in which students are free to learn and enjoy the music and the dance. This means we have a zero-tolerance policy against racism, homophobia, sexism and sexual harassment. Engaging in any of these will lead to your removal from current and future lessons without refund and possibly, legal action.
Slow Bal is a dance primarily danced in a close embrace position. This means we believe it is extra important that you and your partner feel comfortable. You hands will connect on the shoulder, arm, waist or back; and the two dancers generally have a chest connection. Respect each other’s physical boundaries, behave respectfully towards other people in the class; check in regularly if your partner is comfortable before and during a dance and be safe on the dance floor. Please refrain from dangerous moves, sudden or forceful movement, or dancing in any way that might harm or hurt yourself, your partner or anyone else on the dance floor. You are always free to refuse a dance, both inside and outside of our lessons, without explaining yourself. If you are dancing and feel uncomfortable for whichever reason, please have your partner know and if need be, inform the teachers present. Please also feel free to approach and inform the teachers if you want to express any concerns you may have, both inside and outside of class.
