TERMS AND CONDITIONS
1. To register:
To register, send an e-mail with the course of your choice, full names, e-mail addresses and mobile phone numbers of both dance partners to [email protected]
2. Tango classes:
All rates are per series of lessons and for the number of consecutive lessons, as announced on the website.
There is precedence for registering for the complete series of lessons.
Those who cannot commit themselves to the total duration of the series, should mention this upon registering.
Participation in a course of classes for only a number of dates, can only be confirmed in case sufficient places remain available one week before the start of the series.
Registration with a dance partner is preferred. In case you do not have a dance partner, you mention this upon registering (see further down).
For the series of tecnica classes you can register without a dance partner.
The series of classes takes place when a minimum of 7 dance couples has registered.
The payments for your series of classes is to be paid cash or by bank transfer, within 7 days after having received your confirmation of participation in the series by BE-TANGO (by e-mail) and latest 1 week before the start of the season.
The bank details are given to you upon confirmation of your registration, in the email that BE-TANGO sends out.
Late or non payments cannot result in the cancellation of your participation (see further).
4. Missed classes:
Missed classes cannot be reimbursed.
Missed classes can be caught up in a class of the same level or lower, or in the tecnica class.
Please verify in advance with BE-TANGO when you wish to catch up on your missed course.
When you will be missing a class, you will need to inform your dance partner and BE-TANGO latest 48h in advance.
Missed courses can be caught up only within the duration of the series of classes: students can follow the number of classes for which they paid, but not beyond the expiration date of the series. Consult the dates of your series of lessons in order for you to catch up possible missed lessons before the end of the series.
When you miss a lesson, you cannot catch up in another, organised by BE-TANGO, workshop, internship or as your entrance for La Milonguita (the milonga of BE-TANGO).
When one of the dance partners cannot make it to class, this class can be caught up on a different moment with the same dance partner.
When one of the dance partners brings a replacement (BE-TANGO can possibly help in this search of a replacement – see higher), the possibility to catch up the missed class for the absent partner, expires.
When one of the dance partners brings a replacement who is not registered in one of the series at BE-TANGO, this person is required to pay in order for her/him to attend this class (15 euro p.p. for the Wednesday classes in Koekelberg and Thursday classes in Woluwe).
5. In search for a dance partner:
Registrations can only be confirmed to those of you who have registered with a dance partner.
If you are looking for a dance partner, please inform us by email ([email protected]), in which you mention: your age, languages you understand/speak, height, tango experience and a valid mobile phone number.
BE-TANGO helps you in your search for a dance partner, in any way we can, however we cannot guarantee it.
For beginning tango dancers, in search of a dance partner, we recommend to ask around in your circle of friends, family or colleagues in order to find out if any of them would like to follow classes of Argentine tango with you.
For the more intermediate and advanced dancers, who go out and dance at milongas, we ask to inform yourselves with your favorite dancer to find out if he or she is interested in following classes with you at BE-TANGO.
Those in search of a dance partner for the same level, will be put in touch, in order to get acquainted and to possibly register as a dance couple for the same course.
Upon finding you the appropriate dance partner, BE-TANGO beliefs in the courtesy of the dance partners that are teamed up by BE-TANGO, to register and follow classes at BE-TANGO. Any request to find a dance partner in order to participate in classes of another tango school, will not be taken into account.
6. Cancellation policy:
All registrations are formal. The amount has to be paid at least one week (7 calendar days) before the start of the classes. Also those of you, being absent on the first class of the series, need to pay the full amount (but can catch up the missed class – see higher).
For payments received after the start of the series of classes, an administrative fee of € 0,50 per person per day of delay in the payment will be added up.
All cancellations must be explicitly sent by e-mail; the non-or late payment of the lessons can not be considered as a cancellation.
For cancellations less than one week before the start of the series, an administration fee of € 20 per person will be charged.
Inform BE-TANGO as soon as possible when you cannot join, in order to search for and possibly find a replacement.
Cancellations after the start of the course are non-refundable and must be paid in full, unless a replacement couple is found who takes over the series of lessons.
