Liability Disclaimer

All teachers are fully qualified, DBS checked and insured.

However, due to the nature of teaching dance sometimes it is necessary to correct dance positions physically to coincide with verbal instruction. This is always conducted with the utmost care and professionalism and only with the student’s permission. We will refrain from physical contact while social distancing rules are still in place during the COVID-19 crisis 2020.

Neither Siegeris Dance nor our halls/studios will be liable for the loss or damage of any property belonging to the pupils and/or parents/carers.

Neither Siegeris Dance nor our halls/studios will be liable for any loss or expense due to circumstances beyond our/their control. Those circumstances include amongst others: transport, fire, weather, epidemic, and pandemic (i.e. COVID-19 and others), lockdown, any technical issues.

Neither Siegeris Dance nor our halls/studios will be liable for a child going missing before or after class. It is the parents’ responsibility to ensure that Siegeris Dance is informed well in advance of the class if children are allowed to go home on their own or if they are being collected by someone other than the parents.

* Please note that Siegeris Dance is an approachable business. We will i.e. help to find a lost property and will endeavour to find individual solutions in a case of an emergency. Maintaining a positive relationship with our customers is important to us. However, as a business we also have a responsibility towards our business partners (i.e. studios) and our employees. We will not and cannot abandon that responsibility. Even in difficult and/or unprecedented times we will always try to provide our dance classes. If you as a customer then choose not to partake, our liability disclaimer will become effective.
