Salsa, Mambo & Bachata in the time of Covid-19
Please help us keep our studio safe by respecting and following public health precautions. We request that you sign in to our Classes with our NZ COVID Tracer App QR code. Hygiene best practices (including staying at home if you are unwell or should be isolating for any reason) are expected of everyone coming to Classes.
If Covid-19 Alert Level restrictions change we may offer and notify you of online Classes, Membership discounts, and/or Membership freeze options as applicable.
Our Timetable and Classes
The most up to date versions of our Timetable and Classes is maintained on our website.
Our Classes run through the year from late-January until mid-December. Our regular ongoing classes take a two week break in the middle of the year.
From time to time we update our Timetable and Classes. We reserve the right to add, change or remove classes, and change instructors on our timetables at any time.
Dancing is a fantastically fun form of exercise. But any form of exercise can cause physical injury, or create or increase risk for certain health conditions. You acknowledge that there are risks of physical injury or to your health that may result from participating in Salsa Magic Classes, and you voluntarily assume the risks associated with your participation. Our teachers are not medically qualified to assess if you are fit to exercise without risking your health. You acknowledge that it’s your sole responsibility to seek medical advice as required before starting or while coming to Classes with us.
We collect and hold personal information provided by you when you sign up to our classes, Membership packages, and events. We use this information to provide our Classes and events, and notify you of information relevant to our Classes, events and Membership. We may provide this information to third parties for the purposes of our studio management system (including our Salsa Magic Glofox App) and direct debit payments, for the purpose of running our events, if required for Ministry of Health contact tracing requirements, or if otherwise required by law.
You can request the update or deletion of your information at any time.
Allowing us to use your image

By accepting these terms, you grant us the unrestricted right and permission to use your image in printed or digital promotional material including, but not limited to: websites, social media, flyers, banners and videos. If your image does feature in our promotional material and you would prefer that it did not, just let us know and we will change it if it is reasonably practicable to do so.
Cancelling pre-booked Classes
If you book and pay in advance for any of our classes, Beginner 1 courses, Special Courses or a private lesson, you may cancel and receive back the pre-paid class credit or a refund (as applicable) for your booking up until 24 hours before the start of that class, course or private lesson.
You acknowledge and agree that if you cancel a pre-booked Class less than 24 hours before that Class is due to start, you will lose the pre-paid class credit or payment (as applicable) for the Class.
We do not offer refunds or partial refunds for unused class credits or unattended courses.
