TERMS & CONDITIONS

MAKE SURE TO KEEP UP TO DATE!

“You” below refers to the participant. In the case of under 18 participants, parental permission to participate must be given on the enrolment form.

 

Payments, Refunds and Cancellations

  • Class fees are due on second week of attendance and should be paid online if possible.
  • Class fees are non-transferable and non-refundable unless you are unable to continue for medical reasons and have a medical certificate.

Enrolment

  • New participants are invited to attend one session before deciding to enrol for a term. There are open days available regularly for a free “try out” but you can also attend a regular session.
  • Participation in circus training will only be allowed if you have completed an enrolment form – available online and at the sessions.
  • Re-enrolment is strictly on a first-paid first-in basis each term.

Safety

  • The enrolment form outlines our safety policies and the nature of the risk you are taking. This form must be completed before participation.
  • Circus training requires some body contact with the trainers. All trainers have working with children checks and there is a strict “a trainer should never be alone with a single child” policy.
  • The aerial gear is set up and maintained by qualified riggers.
  • Late entry to sessions may not always be permitted if in the opinion of the trainer that creates a safety risk.
  • Participants must wear suitable clothing and shoes and may be excluded from certain activities if the clothing is considered a safety or modesty issue by the trainers.
  • Parents are very welcome to stay and watch any sessions.

 

 

Rules

 

Rules for participants

  • Only climb on aerial gear if you have permission from a trainer to do so, or you are with a trainer.
  • If you are practicing without a trainer, you can run through all the tricks you are allowed to do alone. These will be written on the apparatus sheet.
  • Share the gear – it’s for everyone to use.
  • Don’t be on or walk across a landing mat unless you are the one on the aerial apparatus above it.
  • Don’t run or throw things around.
  • Don’t prevent another person from training.

 

Rules for parents and other people in the space

  • Please be quiet observers and stay in the parents area.
  • Please don’t distract the participants.
  • Please don’t talk during the end-of-session performances. Respect is important.

 

Behavior management

Note: A significant aim of the circus is to allow children space for free play, learning self-management and self-motivation and discovering how to work well in groups.

  • A person will be quietly and privately informed of the rules and the reason for them
  • If a rule is hard to follow, people may be distracted from breaking it, but this is only a temporary solution.
  • If a person can’t be convinced or distracted they may be excluded for one for more sessions.
