Terms & Conditions

The use of the term student is referring to anyone, child or adult, who participates in training with Art of Movement Bristol.

1.0 Attendance and punctuality
Art of Movement reserves the right to refuse access to any student who arrives late in class, in order to maintain the integrity of the class and ensure the best learning experience for all participants. Students should arrive at least 10 mins before the scheduled class time.

Punctuality is crucial for both kids and adults as it fosters discipline, respect, and a structured learning environment. Arriving on time ensures that participants do not miss important warm-up exercises, safety instructions, and foundational techniques that set the stage for the rest of the class. For children, it instills a sense of responsibility and helps them develop time management skills. For adults, punctuality reflects commitment and respect for the instructor and fellow students, enhancing the overall effectiveness and cohesiveness of the training session.

2.0 Change of location and time
Art of Movement reserves the right to change the time or location of any classes. In the unlikely event that a class is cancelled, Art of Movement will provide as much notice as possible as well as alternative training sessions when/ if possible. 

3.0 Attendance in class (parents, friends, relatives)
Please understand the difference between coaching & parenting. We ask parents, friends and/or relatives to not interact with kids during class.
