Terms and Conditions

To help you get the best from Flair Performing Arts and to understand our responsibilities to you and your responsibilities to us, please read these terms and conditions carefully.

The language we use should make these terms and conditions as clear as possible. If you have any questions please contact us and a member of our team who will be happy to help you.

To help make these terms and conditions easy to read, we have split them into two parts.

Part A – terms and conditions of membership

All members must keep to the same terms and conditions, including adult and child members whose memberships are associated with other members and who have accepted these terms and conditions on their behalf.

Part B – rules and regulations for attending classes & using our facilities

These terms and conditions apply to all our members and their guests. They are necessary to make sure we can offer an enjoyable and safe environment for you, your guests and our other members to share during every visit to us.

These terms and conditions apply at all times and take priority over anything a member of our team has told you.

These terms and conditions replace any previous versions.

 

Part A – terms and conditions of membership

Definitions that apply to part A

You – the account holder & primary contact

Associated users – anyone who is linked to your membership

Associated students – any student who is linked to your membership

Your entire membership – your membership and the membership of your associated users

We and us – Flair Performing Arts

Your classes – the Flair Performing Arts sessions you are a member of

1 - Responsibilities of account holders and associated users and students

a Every person on your account will be jointly and individually responsible under this agreement.

b This means that:

  • if one of those people tells us to do anything in relation to the membership (including ending it) we will take that as authority from all of them;
  • each of those people will be responsible for paying all the appropriate membership fees for themselves, for any other people who have signed the form, and for all associated users (whether adults or children); and
  • each of those people will be responsible for paying any extra charges and fees which they, any other people who have accepted the terms and conditions, an associated user or a guest has to pay for using our facilities and services not covered by the standard monthly membership.

c The responsibility in A1b for the fees and charges of any associated user continues until:

  • the associated user’s link with the lead member changes in any of the ways set out in A8
  • ‘Changing your membership’; or
  • the associated user ends their membership by following the procedure in A14 ‘Ending your
  • membership’.

d The rules in A1a – c also apply to anyone who completes an online registration form.

e All of these terms and conditions of membership apply to you and all associated users & students unless we tell you otherwise.

f You and all associated users & students must keep to the rules and regulations for using facilities set out in Part B.

2 - Notice

a We calculate your membership in whole calendar months. This means that the following applies.

  • Anywhere in these terms and conditions where we ask you to give notice of one calendar month or more, if you give notice during a month, we will treat it as if we received it on the first day of the following month and the notice period will run from that day. For example, if you need to give us one month’s notice to end your membership and we receive your notice on 23 May, your notice will start from 1 June, it will run out on 30 June, your membership will end on 30 June and you will pay one more direct debit (on 1 June) after giving notice. The only exception to this is if you give us notice at the beginning of a month. This means that if we receive notice from you up to and including the fourth day of a month, we will treat it as if we received it on the first day of that month and the notice period will run from that day.
  • Anywhere in these terms and conditions where you can give notice to end your membership from the end of the month, when you give notice we will end your membership at the end of the month during which we receive your notice as long as you have met all other requirements associated with it. For example, if we receive your notice on 23 May (with any supporting evidence we have asked for), your membership will end on 31 May and you will not have to pay any more direct debits after 31 May. There are no exceptions to this rule. For example, if you give us notice on 1 June, your membership will end on 30 June and you will not have to pay any more direct debits after 30 June.

b If you want to give notice, it must be in writing (addressed to the Membership Department of Flair Performing Arts). We will accept notice by email or via the contact page on our website, the email address is on our website. If you need to give us evidence of certain things, you can provide them as attachments to an email.

c Your notice is not effective until we have received it. We strongly advise that when you give notice you get proof that we have received it. For example:

  • if you send us notice by post, send it by recorded delivery (we will have lo sign the delivery notice when we receive it);
  • if you hand your notice in to your class teacher, ask for a receipt; or
  • if you send us your notice by email, ask for a delivery receipt.

d We will confirm we have received your notice within 10 days of receiving it. If you do not receive this confirmation within 10 days, you must immediately let us know so we can check whether we have received it.

e From time to time we will need to contact you about your membership, so it is important you let us know if your address, contact phone number or email address changes.

f If we need to give notice to you:

  • it will be effective if we send it to the address or email address we have in the records we hold about you; and
  • if we give notice during a month, our notice period will run from the first day of the following month.

If you give us notice but we do not receive it by the 4th day of the final calendar month, your membership will not end at the end of your initial period.

your membership suspension form signed by everyone who needs to sign it. You must make sure that we have received the signed membership suspension form as the suspension will not take effect until we have received the form, we strongly advise that you get proof that we have received it.

In facilities where changing rooms are available, children over the age of eight can use the changing rooms without supervision.

4 - Physical Activity

a Regular physical activity is fun and healthy, and increasingly more people are starting to become more active every day. Being more active is very safe for most people. However, some people should check with their doctor before they start becoming much more physically active.

b If you are planning to become much more physically active than you are now and are between the ages of 15-69 you should consider checking with your doctor before you start. If you are over 69 years of age, or any age with an underlying health condition, and you are not used to being very active, check with your doctor.

c If you’re unsure about your physical condition and readiness to participate you should consult with your doctor to clarify that it is safe for you to become active at this current time & in your current state of health.

d You should delay becoming much more active if;

• you are not feeling well because of a temporary illness such as a cold or a fever – wait until you feel better; or

• If you are or may be pregnant – talk to your doctor before you start becoming more active. If you are already active ask your doctor for information about exercising while pregnant.

e When you engage voluntarily in an exercise or dance class run by Flair Performing Arts either for recreational reasons or in an attempt to improve my physical fitness you understand that the activities you participate in are designed to place a gradually increasing workload on the cardio- respiratory system and thereby attempt to improve its function. The reaction of the cardio- respiratory system to such activities cannot be predicted with complete accuracy. There is a risk that changes might occur during exercise to blood pressure and heart rate, but accepting these terms and conditions you personally accept the responsibility of these risks and will take personal steps to mitigate them.

f By accepting these terms & conditions you understand that the purpose of any exercise is to develop and maintain cardio-respiratory fitness, body composition, flexibility and muscular strength and endurance. All exercise programmes include warm-ups, exercise at targeted heart rates and cool down periods. All classes are designed to place a gradually increasing workload on the body in order to improve overall fitness.
