Refunds, Holidays and Sickness Policy 
Unfortunately we cannot offer refunds to cover your booked holidays, illness or any other reason why you may miss a class or workshop, due to the need to ensure continuity of service. 

Should any student wish to discontinue any class or leave the academy, refunds for any unused classes will not be given.


Class Renewal 
Unless contacted in person or via phone or email, we will automatically assume your child continuation at The Emma Kate Dance Academy.

The Emma Kate Dance Academy will endeavour to run classes during bad weather e.g. snowy conditions. However, should we need to cancel due to safety concerns, parents will be notified/contacted. Please check our Facebook page and make sure your phone number is kept up to date on our register. 

If we have to cancel a class, due to bad weather, teacher illness or any other unforeseen circumstances either an alternative class will be offered or a credit towards the next term's fees will be offered.  I am afraid we cannot offer cash refunds. 
In the event of classes being cancelled due to a Covid-19 outbreak, or similar, classes will be moved online and refunds will not be offered.
