Fees & Subscriptions
The Hebden School of Dancing run classes during school term time only. Your payment plan covers the cost for the class you have selected, in the venue you have selected, and is spread equally over 12 months of the year, therefore fees/subscriptions are still payable during school holiday months where no lessons are taking place. Payments are taken from your credit/ debit card on the 1st of every month. The cost of all classes vary and can be found on the individual booking pages. These costs include all membership and insurance fees. We do not offer refunds for classes or trial sessions.
Every new student can attend one no obligation, £5 trial session for each genre.
Cover payments for new starters:
A covering payment is an additional one-off charge that is added to your first monthly subscription. This charge is to cover any unpaid classes attended before your first monthly payment is taken.

No Attendance due to Injury:
If your child is unable to carry on with his/her classes due to an illness or injury as suggested by their doctor, there are 2 options available to you:
Option 1. To guarantee your child's place in their class upon recovery, you can continue paying your monthly subscription at the following reduced rate (depending on which class your child attends) and we will reserve their place in the class. This reduced rate is ONLY APPLICABLE to the FIRST MONTH AFTER INJURY, supported by a doctor's note.
Upper School plan - £20 for the month
Lower School plan - £15 for the month
Option 2. Immediate cancellation without notice*. This does not guarantee your child's place in the class upon recovery due to availability, however if requested we can put their name to the top of the class waiting list.
*For immediate cancellation please see “Cancellation of Subscription” below.
Failure to Pay Monthly Subscription: If we are unable to collect your monthly subscription payment on the 1st of the Month we will attempt to take payment 3 days later, and then 5 days thereafter. After which, we will attempt to contact you to restore your subscription. If your subscription payment is not up to date by the 14th of the month your child and place in the class will be removed and offered to someone else. Please update your bank details on your Class4Kids account or contact us asap.
Cancellation of Subscription
EFFECTIVE September 1st 2019: Cancellation Policy
We plan our classes on a termly basis and to get the most out of the club and your child’s interest in dance we encourage you to join with a commitment to completing each term in full. Your payments are on a running subscription with monthly payments meaning you do not need to re-book each term as you will automatically be re-enrolled.
To process a cancellation in line with our terms & conditions please use the submission form found below.
30 days’ notice is required if a student decides to no longer participate in classes. If the required notice is not received, the full payment of the pupil’s fees for the following month will not be refunded. 30 days notice is processed from the date the form below is completed. Our cancellation period is clearly stated under the terms & agreement section when signing up on ClassForKids.
When you cancel your membership we will send an email in acknowledgement to confirm the date that your subscription will end. Your child is entitled to attend classes until then. If you do not receive this acknowledgement, you must assume that we have not received your cancellation notice.
If you would like to come back, (we hope you do!), you may need to go on a waiting list as we unfortunately can’t guarantee availability in the same class.
Attendance: If a child can not attend a class for any reason, we cannot transfer their class to another member or provide a refund. Where an alternative class is available we can process a switch.
If for any unforeseen circumstances a class has to be cancelled we will endeavour to offer a make up session either online or in person, this is at the discretion of the principal and is not guaranteed.
Cancellation & refund of workshops policy:
Our policy is to ask for one week's written notice which must be given in the event of cancelling the camp booking, otherwise you will be charged the full amount for that booking. If a week or more notice is given, then a 95% refund will be made. The 5% reduction will have to go towards the refund administration fee charged to us by our supplier - we do not keep this money. If there are extenuating circumstances, we will endeavour to be as flexible as possible in rebooking you on to a workshop on another day/week. This will be subject to availability and only to be used within the same school holiday. This will be subject to our “Rearranging of Workshops” policy below.
Rearranging of Workshops policy:
All rearranged workshop bookings can only be made at least 2 days ahead of the booking date. We are unable to rearrange or refund any workshops after this point. Unfortunately should a cancellation be made towards the end of a holiday period over the last 2 days, we will not be able to rearrange or refund these sessions.
*COVID-19 Policy: Should we be closed down due to revised government guidelines, an alternative date or full refund for workshops will be given.* (Updated 20th May 2020)
Private Lessons & Coaching
Parents who book private lessons, whether for festivals, competitions, exam coaching or otherwise, must pay in advance for these classes when they are booked. Refunds will not be given in the event of the pupil not attending pre-booked private lessons. Private lessons will be booked in writing and agreed by pupil, parents and HSD.
Guidance for School Led Class Cancellation
In the event of adverse weather conditions, government school closures or natural disasters it is at the discretion of the principal as to whether classes will run. Travelling, student welfare and safety will all be taken into account. In the event classes are cancelled parents will be made aware via email & social media. If the school must cancel classes due to extreme weather, epidemic, pandemic or other events beyond our control, classes will be cancelled, where possible you may make up the lesson within 30 days in a similar level class. Refunds or credits are not given. It is at the principal’s discretion as to whether an additional class or online class is put on to make up cancelled classes.

We encourage you to frequently check this page for any changes to stay informed.
