General Terms and Conditions
What we are all about
Welcome to your first class with Bossa Latina! The Bossa crew like to do things differently here. Bossa Latina is all about learning dance YOUR way. We want you to feel comfortable, to have fun, and to learn how to dance in your own unique style.
Here at Bossa Latina, you will find our conventional latin dance classes that you can just enrol in as well as our private group classes. This option give you the opportunity to create your own class with your friends. We invite you to make suggestions as to what style/s you want to learn, what length of course you want to do and how many people you want in your class. We want you to feel awesome about your dance and we want you to have fun on the way to that place. Our ultimate goal is for you to feel comfortable and to be able to put your walls down. We encourage you to speak up in class, to tell your teacher what you need help with and what you would like to revise. We are all about You and our teachers at Bossa Latina go at your pace.
But before you put on your dancing shoes and start having fun… we need you to read some important stuff so we are all clear about how things work at Bossa Latina.

If we are not given 24 hours notice of your non-attendance no make up class will be given. If you know that you will miss 4 or more classes in a term speak to us and we can offer you a private lesson at a reduced cost to help you get up to speed with the material you miss.
Private Groups Classes
Bossa Latina offers small group classes specifically tailored to you, so unfortunately if you miss a class we cannot offer you a catch up class. We can however offer you a private lesson at a reduced cost to help you get up to speed with the material you missed if you miss 4 class.
