The “real world” has a habit of getting in the way of our dancing – whether it be a normal Class or a Private Lesson (including Wedding Classes).
In the event of an unforeseen event we require 12 hours notice if you need to re-schedule a Private Lesson.
We can be notified via email (see “Contact Us” below), or via telephone or TEXT (0427 52 84 66 (0427 LATINO)) which includes messages left on our Voice Mail.
Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online and hard copy information practices, and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.
Contacting other Dancers.
From time to time we receive requests from learners for contact information about other learners. While we believe these requests to be absolutely honest and for genuine reasons, we cannot provide such information.
As an alternative, IF YOU GIVE US YOUR PERMISSION to provide your details to the other party, and we will pass it along, if reasonable. The Latin Ballroom makes no warranties or assertions as to the likelihood of the other party responding.

We are sometimes asked if we can provide copies of the music tracks we might use in class or for Private Lessons.
While we are confident that the requests are genuinely based on the desire to practice and master the various dance steps, we are sorry, but we CANNOT do so.
This would be a breach of Copyright and may render all parties subject to significant penalties.
Most of the music we use is from CD’s and DVD’s which we either sell, or can direct you to – please ask.
Check our on-line Store – many CD’s and DVD’s are available there.
On Courses and Workshops
Individual lesson and DanceCard purchases:
Purchased Lessons mat be transferred to another dancer or used on another program, Individual Dance lesson Tickets or DanceCards have NO refund or cash value. A lost DanceCard cannot be replaced.
For Specialty Courses (e.g. Medal Program) Registration fees are for a complete Course Of Instruction – not individual Lessons – and are not refundable. We will generally provide several alternate opportunities for individuals to complete their Course.
At the absolute discretion of the Studio, in exceptional circumstances, when the situation beyond the individual’s control prevents their attendance in any particular Course, we may provide a Course Credit (either FULL or pro rata).
Please Note: To obtain approval for a Course Credit, we must be advised at the time.
On DVDs, CDs and other Products
We will gladly exchange or provide a refund on any item if it has an error or flaw.
We will provide an exchange or refund on DVDs and CDs ONLY if they are still in their unopened packaging, in good condition, within seven (7) days of purchase.
We hate SPAM as much as you do. Although sometimes tedious, we have included the following features on the Latin Ballroom. We explain them here so that you know why you might get an unexpected email from our Security System.
Portions of this web site are protected by “anti-robot” checks, like the one on our Contact Us page. This ensures that the email comes from a real person, not some machine.
Likewise, when someone registers your name with us for some reason (say, a Subscription to the Newsletter), our Security System will always send a confirming email to the provided address, just to check that you really did make contact with us.
As required by the SPAM Act, all our regular email contacts to you (including our Newsletter), have a dedicated “Unsubscribe” link included. To unsubscribe at any time simply click that link and follow the prompts – and you’re off the database.
“DanceCard” is the name of the device we use to sell and record the sale of dance lessons. DanceCard is designed to represent a specific number of dance lessons – 5 or 10 say. When you attend any class, we will “click out” one lesson each time with a unique “clicker”.
Discounts and Bonuses.
Individual dance lessons are a nominated price each. By purchasing 5 via DanceCard, the price drops to afford a discount per lesson. When purchasing a 10 Lesson DanceCard, in addition to the discounted price, your DanceCard has an additional Bonus Lesson(s) included. No other discounts or bonus apply.
Any class, any day.
You can use your DanceCard to attend ANY regular Club Latin, Latin Styles, Ballroom Styles or Beginners’ Social Course lesson on ANY day.
Specialty Courses including but not limited to Medal Programs, Private Lessons, Wedding Packages, Teacher Training Program are NOT included in any DanceCard payment option.
If you and your dance partner want to use a single DanceCard, that’s OK. We will just “click out “ two (2) lessons. If you buy a DanceCard as a present, the recipient will have no problem using it!
Each DanceCard has a unique serial number. Only DanceCards with a valid, issued serial number will be honored.
Forgot your DanceCard?
DanceCard is designed to fit conveniently on your key ring, so remembering to bring it along to class is easy, but things do happen. If you forget your DanceCard advise the Studio Staff and we’ll just “sign you in”. When you come along to the next lesson with your DanceCard, we’ll just update it with the appropriate number of “clicks”.
DanceCards expire six (6) months after issue. If there is some exceptional reason you need to extend this period please discuss it with the Lead Teacher. The decision to extend or not is wholly at the discretion of the Latin Ballroom.
DanceCards have no cash or refund value. Unused lessons CANNOT be refunded. You can transfer your DanceCard to anther dancer at your discretion.
