JOINING & BOOKING INFORMATION, TERMS & CONDITIONS:

  • Pre-Booking: Places are secured in advance via pre-payment only, verbal reservations are not accepted. Please use the Paypal 'Buy Now' buttons above to pay by card, you do not need a paypal account; or email for Bank Transfer details. Postal bookings are not accepted. In-person cash bookings can be brought into an existing class, please call for information. Take note of the Money Back Guarantee and refund terms below. Under booked courses/classes are cancelled and refunded. Please be aware your place is considered voided and may be given to another student if you do not attend the first class of a course to enrol and honour your booking, unless you make advance or immediate contact to advise otherwise and have the place held until the following week. No refunds are available for students who fail to enrol at the first class.

  • Trial/Taster Classes: The first class of a course is free if you pre-book, attend, and decide not to continue, see Money Back Guarantee. Alternatively the first class of the course, or any dance-fitness class may be attended for a one-off fee on the door (cash on arrival subject to availability, no reservations, first come, first served). One-off Taster Classes are also provided periodically and listed in the timetable above accordingly.

    Please note that if you pay on the door for the first class, a place on any course running thereafter is not guaranteed as priority is given to those who pre-pay for the full course. If a place is available the remaining course fee is payable as cash at the end of your trial class (not at the next class). Please be advised that on-the-door and late enrolment fees are much higher than pre-booked.

  • Personal Introductory Belly Dance Lesson: If you have missed a Taster class and cannot wait until the next one available, you may book a one-off personal introductory lesson at one of our venues (fixed time slots available). Tina-Louise may also be booked for group Taster Lessons at a venue and time to suit you, perfect for girl's nights, birthdays and hen parties. Please contact for further information.

  • Advance Contact: If not pre-booking, advance contact before arrival for the first time is recommended to request a Fitness to Dance screening form. In some circumstances medical advice or consent may be required before admittance in cases of injury, health problems or pregnancy. It is in your interest to request the form in advance. If pre-booking you will be sent the form automatically. Otherwise, please be sure to arrive 10 minutes early to complete a copy on arrival. Please read the Attendance Advice in advance for details of what to wear, bring, and health and safety. Checking that the class is running as advertised is also advisable in case of last minute changes.
  • Arriving on time: There is no admittance after the warm-up. Please make sure you arrive on time for your class.
  • 100% Money Back Guarantee: Pre-paid courses only. If you attend the first class of a pre-booked course and decide not to continue, you may claim a late refund for the FULL AMOUNT PAID within 48 hours of attending, no questions asked, effectively making your first class free. The guarantee is void 48 hours after the first class, or if you fail to attend your first booked class. The Money Back Guarantee is only applicable to courses that have been pre-paid online, and can be claimed once only per person. Does not apply to taster classes or other one-off sessions which are not refundable.
  • Refunds and Transfers: One-off taster classes and workshops are not refundable or transferable. However if you have booked a course and are unable to attend, you may claim a refund or transfer to another course until 14 days before the course you have booked begins (unless stated otherwise in the timetable above). Payment is strictly NOT refundable or transferable if you fail to attend or cancel later than this, except using the Money Back Guarantee above.
  • Missed Classes: Any classes missed but paid for are not refundable, but Belly Dance Beginners may attend up to 3 repeat classes if and when available as a catch up, for no additional charge within the same term. If 3 or more consecutive classes are missed your booking is considered void and your place may be offered to a new student. If you miss the first class (failing to enrol) and do not make advance or immediate contact to hold your place, your place is voided and not refundable. You may not progress to the next level of classes if you have missed 3 or more classes.
  • Termly Payments: Beginners courses are payable in full at the start. The full course fee is still payable if you join late or miss classes. Once beginners level is completed, students are only required to pay for the classes they are able to attend at the start of each term and do not have to pay for classes missed due to holidays or other commitments. However once paid for, missed classes cannot be refunded, but a suitable alternative class can be attended as a replacement if available, for no additional charge within the same term. Replacement classes due are void at the end of each term.
  • Under 16s: Under 16s may attend Belly Dance classes when accompanied by a participating parent/guardian over 18 only. Bookings received for under 16s will not be accepted unless sent with an adult booking. All other classes are for over 16s only.
  • Joining a Beginners Belly Dance course that is underway: The courses must be attended in full from the start as they have a lot of content, and are progressive and carefully structured. This is both for your own benefit and the interests of other class members so that they are not held back by new arrivals. Once a course has commenced latecomers may only join during the first few weeks, space permitting. After week 2 has passed, new students must first take extra-curricular lessons in order to catch-up with the course they wish to join (see below). The full course fee (regardless of when you join) and cost of any catch-up lessons required must be pre-paid as a block before you can begin. Late enrolment fees are at a premium rate.

  • Private Lessons: Tina-Louise teaches in a group format and not on a one-to-one regular basis. All students are expected to attend regular group classes. However, newcomers who have missed or are unable to attend the advertised Taster Classes and cannot wait until the next ones available, may book a one-off personal introductory Belly Dance lesson (see above). These are available at set times and locations, please contact for details. Personalised 'Catch-up' lessons are also available for students who have missed classes and need to catch up with a course that is underway, up to a maximum of three sessions per student. These are usually provided for two or more students together and very rarely one-to-one. The full course fee (regardless of when you join) and cost of any catch-up lessons required must be pre-paid as a block before you can begin. If you are a group organising a girl's night, birthday or hen party, you can book a group Taster Lesson at a venue and time to suit you. Please contact for more information.
  • Corporate Block Booking: Companies wishing to provide day-time leisure activities for their employees at their own premises may block book a series of classes with Tina-Louise for a fixed rate (not a per-participant rate).
