DVS TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Agreeing to participate in lessons with Dance Vancouver Studio means you agree to the following terms and conditions. If you have questions or concerns regarding any part of these conditions please contact us prior to participating.
By selecting a product or service, you agree to pay Dance Vancouver Studio the one-time and/or monthly or annual subscription fees indicated. Membership payments will be charged on a pre-pay basis on the day you sign up and will cover the use of that service for a monthly or annual subscription period as indicated.
Payments are not refundable unless in exceptional circumstances. Dance Vancouver Studio reserves the right to change the payment terms and fees at any time, however, we will endeavor to inform students of any changes as soon as possible.
Class Booking Policy
DVS students are required to book themselves in for all classes they plan to attend. It is strongly recommended to book your classes immediately after registration / payment has been made. Once payment has been made you will be prompted to book yourself in for classes. Bookings need to be in no later than 9am on the day of class. However it is advised to book asap. Bookings can be done by following the prompts after payment has been made, and or on the dancevancover.ca website and, on the DVS App.
Class Booking Cancellation Policy
Class bookings and booking cancellations can be done directly through the dancevancouver.ca website (My account > My Bookings) as well as on the DVS (Fit by Wix) App no later than 6 hours prior to the start of the class. Late cancellations and no shows will be subject to a $5 fee. This applies to Membership holders, New Student Deal holders, returning students registered in individual Courses, and/or persons with 8 class “punch cards”. Failure to cancel classes by the deadline could result in a $5 late cancellation fee, and the missed class will be deducted from their total remaining classes and no make-up class given.
The class booking and cancellation guidelines are in place to better help us provide the best experience by helping balance ratios of leads and follows and allow potential waitlisted persons the opportunity to join a fully booked class.
Drop-In fees that have already been used cannot be put towards any course or membership. Drop-ins are only possible if space is available, and if it does not reasonably disrupt the class lead to follow ratio and that the class level is appropriate for the drop-in student,
Prospective students are welcome to view any and all classes before joining.

DVS Canceled Classes
If classes are canceled due to the fault of the Studio, the time will be made up, or credit will be carried forward to the following month’s fees. This will be done at the discretion of Dance Vancouver Studio.
