Respect to everyone
We believe in creating a safe and friendly environment for all. LVBA embrace and treat all students equally regardless of their background, ethnicity, age, gender and sexual orientation.
The utmost respect and discipline are expected from all our students during classes towards their trainers and their peers.
Participation in all LVBA classes is dependent on each participant demonstrating respectful, courteous, honest and appropriate behaviour.
LVBA does not tolerate any form of disrespect against the trainers or other students. Any student/client who acts disrespectfully towards others will be asked to leave the class and/or may have their access to the entire course revoked and may forfeit their right to any refund.
Inappropriate behaviour and disrespect are classified as anything verbal and non verbal behaviour that may be actual or perceived intimidation, harassment, discrimination or abuse.
Classes may be physically strenuous, and participation is voluntary, based on your own assessment of your fitness, health, ability (or your child’s) to participate and understanding of the class requirements, activities and expected outcomes.
You realize that participation in performing arts (drama, singing and dance) classes and activities could involve some possible personal injury. Despite precautions, accidents and injuries may occur. By agreeing to these Terms, you (the client or/and parent/guardian) assume all risks related to the use of any and all spaces used by LVBA.
You agree to release and hold harmless LVBA including its teachers, dancers, staff members and facilities used by LVBA from any cause of action, claims, or demands now and in the future. You will not hold LVBA liable for any personal injury or any personal property damage, which may occur on the premises before, during or after classes. Furthermore, you agree to obey the class and facility rules and take full responsibility for your behaviour (or your child’s behaviour) in addition to any damage you or they may cause to the facilities utilized by LVBA.
You understand that LVBA is insured. In the event that you should observe any unsafe conduct or conditions before, during or after your classes, you agree to report the unsafe conduct or conditions to the Executive Director, Artistic Director, Individual Instructor or staff member as soon as possible.

An Image release forms may be issued to participants if LVBA wishes to expand the use of personal information and images beyond reasonable marketing and communication purposes. LVBA does not publish last names or any personal details other than first name of its students/clients on social media.

All material (physical and digital), warm ups, exercises, activities, audio files, pictures, PowerPoint presentations and videos, whether delivered in-class or online, are exclusive intellectual property of LVBA. You are not permitted to record or share class content and material with non-participants and this includes the sharing, recording or downloading of LVBA class content between devices, platforms or networks, which is strictly prohibited, unless express written permission to do so is provided by LVBA.
Any use of LVBA material outside of LVBA classes and courses and without express written permission to do so provided by LVBA is strictly prohibited. Any infringement to this clause may trigger legal action.
When enrolling to one of our classes/courses/workshop or camp, you agree to supply certain personal information including, without limitation, your first and last name, email address, phone number, residential address, date of birth, child’s first name, child’s date of birth, child’s gender and child’s medical condition.
Your personal details will remain private and will not be shared with any third party.
Courses and workshops might be subject to a annual enrolment fee.
This enrolment fee covers administrative costs of entering the student’s details in our system, cost of insurance and licensing.
This fee is payable only once every year (01/01 to 31/12) as long as the student remains enrolled in at least one of our courses. Enrolment fee is independent of the number of courses/classes/workshops you enrol in. Students who enrol in 2 or 3 or more classes only have to pay one enrolment fee. If you have already paid your enrolment fee for the year and decide, during the same year, to enrol in more courses/classes or workshops, no extra enrolment fee will be required. However, your enrolment in LVBA is revoked as soon as a student stops being enrolled in at least one of our classes. If you decide to stop your enrolment during the year (ie. ‘take a break’) and then return during the same year, (such as a term later), a new enrolment fee will be due. Enrolment fees are non-refundable unless the course/class/workshop is cancel by LVBA.
Enrolments and Automatic Renewals
We made it easier for our students. When you enrol to our courses, you don’t have to re-enrol and re-enter all your details every term. (who’s got the time?)
Your enrolment (unless paid per year) will automatic be renewed 2 weeks before the beginning of the next term and this until the end of the course (ie. 40 weeks or 4 terms or 30 weeks…). Payment for a new term (unless paid per week or per year) will be processed 2 weeks before the beginning of the next term and this until the end of the course (ie. 40 weeks or 4 terms or 30 weeks…).By accepting our Terms and Conditions, you commit to the full duration of the course (ie. 40 weeks, …) and accept for your payment method to be charged automatically per term or per week depending on the option you chose during your first enrolment.
Just a friendly (and boring) reminder that it is of the responsibility of the client/student to ensure that there are sufficient funds on their payment method for their recurring payments to be processed successfully (at the end of a term or weekly).
In case of payment failure, our system will try to reprocess the payment up to 3 times.
After 3 unsuccessful payments, your enrolment will be put on hold and we will contact you to try to resolve the issue. Please be aware that access to the classes might be denied until your account has been settled and that any payment for the remaining sessions of the term will be due.
If you enrol between week 1 and week 3 of a term, you agree to be billed for the full term. If you enrol after week 4 of a term, you may be billed for the number of weeks remaining in the term at the weekly payment rate. However, please, note that this option is only available for some courses and that, for most courses, no enrolment is accepted passed week 4 of a term.
Timetable and Locations
We always do our best to keep our timetables and locations consistent throughout the year, so we don’t mess around with your other commitments. However, due to venues availability and enrolment dependency, we might be forced to adapt/change the time and/or day and/or location of your class(es). We will always do our best for those changes to not affect your personal schedule too much. By accepting our Terms & Conditions, you understand that a change of day and/or time and/or location, thought reasonable by LVBA, does not automatically give grounds for a refund or enrolment cancelation.
Cancellation from LVBA
Because most our courses are enrolment dependent (and also because of Covid!), we have to reserve the right to cancel a class or a course at any time. But don’t worry. Any cancellation of a full course from our end will trigger a full refund or store credit of your enrolment, enrolment fees (if applicable) or/and subscriptions for the remaining classes.
Where participation in classes is regulated by minimum or maximum participant numbers, participation is on a first-come, first-served basis where participation numbers may need to be controlled. Where participation numbers do not meet LVBA class guidelines, participation is not guaranteed.
You acknowledge that any class that might be postponed by LVBA due to temporary incapacity during the 10 weeks of a normal term will be rescheduled in week 11 or 12 of the same term and that no refund will be issued for classes that are postponed within the 12 weeks of the term. A partial refund on a class per class basis will be issued to you in the case of a class being purely cancelled (not postponed and not rescheduled during the 12 weeks of a term).
Cancellation from the Client
If you decide to pay your enrolment per week or per term, you commit to the full term of the course (ie. 40 weeks or 4 terms or 30 weeks etc…). If you wish to cancel your enrolment or subscription before the end of the course (or year), you must do so by email at least 2 weeks before the beginning of a new term or the beginning a the workshop/course. No refund/credit will be issued if you decide to cancel your enrolment or subscription after a term or the course/workshop has started. Any enrolment cancellation within the 2 weeks prior to renewal or prior to the beginning of a term will result in a cancellation fee equal to 2 weeks classes at our weekly rate (2 weeks per course you were enrolled in).
If you paid your enrolment by year, you commit to the full year of the course. Your enrolment will be automatically terminated at the end of the year (31/12). Please note that there will be no refund or credit issued if you decide to cancel your enrolment or subscription before the end of the year.
To insure that our students receive the best training appropriate to their individual skills and experience, all our classes are organised in levels.
Level 1 is the entry level for beginners.
Level 2 is for intermediates students.
Level 3 is for advanced students.
Level 4 is ‘masterclass’.
Although it is not compulsory to start at level 1 (you can ask to start at a higher level if you wish to), given that LVBA has their own unique approach and methods of training, we highly recommend every new student to start on level 1 for every discipline regardless of their experience. But don’t worry. On the first weeks of Level 1, our trainers will assess your theoretical knowledge and skills. If it appears that your skills are higher than level 1, and that therefore level 1 is not challenging enough for you, your trainer will offer to move you to the next level without any problem.
In general, students can expect to transition to the next level of their class every term (ie. every 3 months). However, it is understood that the transition to the next level is not a given and is based on the student’s abilities to demonstrate the application of the technique and skills learned during their current level. If, at the end of a term, you haven’t reached the level of skills required to transition to the next level of class (for example, if you missed several classes due to sickness or other commitments), the trainers or the directors will discuss with you the best strategy and may suggest you to stay in your current level for another term.
We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time.
If you have any questions about these Terms, please contact us.
