TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Once you have registered for the performance team, cancellations are not permitted. We are unable to provide any refunds, neither full nor partial, for any upfront costs paid including the purchase of costume levies, uniforms, Stage Hair & Makeup workshops, dance shoes or stockings. By registering, you are purchasing a semester of performance team training upfront. Your training is paid off on a payment plan by weekly installments. Once the payment plan is in place we are unable to terminate or suspend payments, and you will be liable to pay out the full amount regardless of attendance at training or performances.
All dancers are expected to attend a minimum of 80% of scheduled performance team training. It is the dancer’s responsibility to catch up on any missed content either via video, by catching up with a team mate or by booking a private lesson in advance of the following class. Should attendance fall below 80%, Strut Entertainment Group reserves the right to request a student to book private lessons to catch up on missed technique and / or choreography in order to perform.
All choreography is strictly for the purpose of Strut Entertainment Group performances and remains the intellectual and artistic property of Strut Entertainment Group. Choreography is not to be used or adapted for other amateur or professional performances.
All dancers give permission for photographs and video footage taken of them at performances to be used by Strut Entertainment Group in social media posts, website and promotional / marketing activity. Photographs and video of dancers in our costumes or at performances can be shared on the dancer’s personal social media channels as long as Strut Entertainment Group is acknowledged in the post. Photographs and videos of Strut Entertainment Group costumes or performances are not to be used to promote any other amateur or professional dance group or school.
As our VIP customers, all performance team members are given the opportunity to utilize missed training sessions. Should you miss a performance team training session of either 60, 90 or 120 mins, the missed time will remain available for use on your account. You may book in to any of our casual classes, any time during the semester as a replacement class for the session you have missed. All credits on your account must be used by the end of the semester. We can not carry credits over to subsequent semesters. Any training sessions remaining on your package at the end of the semester are therefore forfeited. It is the responsibility of the user to ensure all credit is used prior to the end of the semester.
COSTUME LEVY & COSTUME HIRE T&C
Our costume levy fee provides students with costumes for all of their team performances during the current semester they are enrolled in. The costume levy covers all costume hires from the date the student pays the levy, until the end of the current semester. If a student is enrolling in multiple performance teams, they will be liable to pay a costume levy for EACH TEAM they enroll in. We are unable to provide any refunds, neither full nor partial, for any costume levies paid that are not utilized by the student.
Costumes for performances are to be picked up and returned to Strut Studio Reception during business hours unless otherwise specified and are only to be used for Strut Entertainment Group events and performances. Personal use of Costumes and Accessories is not permitted without expressed written consent.
The normal Costume Hire period is 7 days from pick up, unless otherwise specified. Costumes will be placed in individual bags for the student, including any accessories that may be required to complete the costume (e.g. swords, head pieces, jewellery).
All costumes and accessories are inspected before and after the hire period. It is the students responsibility to inspect the costume before use and advise Strut Entertainment Group via text or email within 24 hours of pick up of any faults or damage.
Our products have been worn by other students prior to your rental. Strut Entertainment Group shall not be held liable for any health-related complaints or injuries associated with products hired from our sites.
Alterations or additions to Costumes are not permitted without expressed written consent from Strut Entertainment Group. Any alterations and damage beyond general wear and tear will be charged to the user.
The user is responsible for the return of the Costume and Accessories, any third party returns with missing or damaged Apparel will be charged to the User. If Apparel is lost, stolen or damaged beyond repair the User will be liable to pay for replacement of the item and any subsequent accessories to match.
