Courses will only run if we have a minimum of 3 people on. If this is a new course we reserve the right to move the start date within a 4 week period from the original start date, after this period you have the right to a full refund or moving to another date. For established courses; if your course runs down you will be offered an alternative class or we may bring other courses into your class. We will endeavor to only put clients of the same standard or stage of learning together to make the classes run as smoothly as possible. Due to circumstances beyond our control we reserve the right to change the start time, date or teacher of your course, lesson, taster or party. You will be notified if this happens and a pro-rata refund will be given if we cannot meet your needs.
Heath & Safety
All clients are required to read the health commitment statement and are requested to inform the instructor of any changes in their circumstances.
Lessons do require a certain level of fitness so if you are in doubt to your suitability to the join the classes, please speak with your GP before signing up and paying. We will not allocate refunds if you have not taken appropriate advice first. You may receive a credit note which you can use towards other suitable classes or transfer it to some one else.
Aerial does carry some risk of serious injury which you must be aware of. We will endeavor to reduce the risk by teaching a progressive program and not asking you to perform moves beyond your ability and control. If you are uncomfortable or wish not to perform a move please make your request know to the instructor who will offer you an alternative.
You are requested not to perform any moves that haven’t been taught to you by an AOF instructor and during your class we request that you follow the plan of the teacher and only perform moves that you have been asked to practice. When in practice session please only practice moves off your lesson plan that you have been taught in class. The session is for practicing moves not learning new ones unless you have missed a lesson and the instructor is catching you up from the lesson you have missed. Practice sessions are only available to current, paying members of the club.
We ask that you watch and listen to the instructions given before performing and wait to be safely spotted before trying a move by your self. The teacher will not be held responsible for injury sustained by a student who hasn’t waited for the appropriate spotting before tackling a move by themselves
We are happy to spot you in to a move but you are responsible for your safety as we are for our own safety therefore we advise you that all moves are performed at your own risk.We ask that you do not ‘spot’ or ‘coach’ each other in class. Our insurance will not cover you for any injures sustained in this manor.
We will not tolerate behavior which is deemed inappropriate or offensive. We reserve the right to ask any persons to leave the class with the right to cancel any future lessons and not refund any monies.
Admittance to the class must be on time. Any persons arriving after the warm up will not be permitted to join the class. An alternative time or class will be offered in this case.
All clients are requested to sign in at reception before their class starts to compile with fire regulations. This is not an option and any persons regularly breaking this rule will be asked to leave the club.
