temporary changes to t&c's
Last updated 22/03/2020
In the current situation, the following changes to MDA's T&C's will be in effect until further notice to help accomodate MDA families during this time. Alterations and additions are highlighted and should be read in conjunction with MDA's terms & conditions of enrolment.
By allowing participation for a child under your care as a parent/legal guardian (or other such authority) in any Mosman Dance Academy Pty Ltd programme (including an online live stream or class) you acknowledge the following:
ONLINE OR LIVE STREAM CLASSES
By participating in a live stream remotely, you acknowledge MDA’s live stream rules.
1) Keep your camera ON.
2) Only enrolled (or make up) dancers can participate.
3) Ensure your camera positioning is appropriate and not invasive to your privacy or others.
4) Parents are responsible for providing a safe environment for the dancer to participate in during the class. MDA is unable to control your home environment and can therefore take no responsibility for damage or injury.
5) Behaviour that violates MDA’s values will result in termination of the live stream.
6. Access to live streaming of classes is only available to active enrolled students of Mosman Dance Academy and you acknowledge that live streaming links will not be shared to anyone apart from those considered enrolled.
When your dancer physically attends a class at MDA:
1. Your class may be live streamed to other active participants of Mosman Dance Academy who are registered to attend the class.
2. Access to live streaming is only available to active customers of Mosman Dance Academy via secure login in the MDA Customer Portal.
MISSING/MAKE UP CLASSES
If a student misses one of their scheduled classes, parents must notify MDA prior or within 72 (24) hours to be eligible for a make up class. Students with eligible make up classes can use these toward any of the available timetabled classes of the dancers level during the same term or the following term with prior notice. Make up classes can only be used by an enrolled student. Should a student drop a class from their enrolment any make up classes associated with the dropped class will be forfeited. Make-up classes will apply for any student who misses a class due to the criteria listed in MDA's COVID-19 policy.
Reschedule/Cancellation of private lessons - Dancers who are part of an MDA eisteddfod group, MDA soloists or dancers undertaking an MDA examination who require a regular lesson as part of their participation may only reschedule their lesson with 2 (24) hours notice, cancellations are not permitted. If 2 (24) hours notice has not been given the lesson will be forfeited.
Dancers not previously mentioned are required to give 2 (24) hours notice for cancellation of a private lesson or the lesson will be forfeited. When 2 (24) hours notice is given the lesson may be rescheduled or a full refund or account credit will be given for paid lessons.
All other MDA T&C's remain in place... MDA's full terms & conditions are available here
