Welcome Pack

Welcome to Vixen Dance & Fitness and thank you for choosing us for your classes.

Vixen Dance & Fitness specialises in injury prevention through unique exercises in both adults and children. I believe in exercises being challenging and fun to achieve the goals we have in mind. Exercises should also work with our body’s individual needs therefore each class is designed with everyone’s ability in mind. So, weather you have a long-standing injury, have structural issues, or just want to exercise for fun, there is a class for everybody at Vixen Dance & Fitness.

 

Happy Dancing!

Enrolment

Please enrol onto your class here.

Once your waiver form has been submitted & received, I will be in touch with you to book your class. All data is stored in accordance with GDPR, Data protection and safeguarding policies.

Please note: currently all cubs classes must have a parent or guardian present. This is for safeguarding reasons. To discuss this further please email Bella. 

Waiting List

Please note that all classes are small in number (max of 8 -10 students) this is to ensure each student receives 1-1 training with myself on every exercise. Should the class you’ve chosen be full you will be placed onto a waiting list, and you will be contacted once a space has become available.

Trial Classes

Once a space has become available, you will receive an invite for a free trial class. The trial class is an opportunity to get to know Bella as a teacher and that you/your child enjoys the classes. If you cannot attend your/your child’s class, please inform Bella 48 hours prior to the class. If no contact is made &/or does not attend their free trial, you will forfeit your right to another free trial class and the next class will be chargeable. It is at Bella's discretion if this amount is a deposit or the full class charge.

Please note that all classes are based on ability if your child is more advanced they will be invited to attend a higher level class, likewise if your child is struggling with the exercises in the class they will be invited to join a lower levelled class. This is to ensure that every child is working within their current ability which will allow them to excel in exercises. Adults & children will not be allowed to attend classes that are too difficult for them as this can be unsafe and their progress can regress. This can happen at any time and will be discussed with you and your child if applicable.

Permanent Enrolment

After the trial class you will receive an invitation to permanently join the class. If a reply is not received within 5 days, your space may be given to another on the waiting list. Once enrolled you will automatically be enrolled every week until notice is given. Please inform Bella 48 hours prior to a class to cancel your enrolment.

The payment system that is used by Vixen Dance and Fitness is GoCardless, a link will be sent to you to join as a customer and the agreed payment will be set & emailed to you. GoCardless is a recurring payment system which can be allocated on specific payment dates to suit you. To discuss this further or for more information, please contact Bella.

Rules for Attending Class

Only adults & children participating in classes will be allowed into the studio. There will be strictly no watching children’s classes. If you are waiting for your child’s class to finish, please wait outside or in your car. This is to limit the amount of people within the venue and reduce contact between others.

If the checks before class haven’t been met the participant (adult or child) must leave the class. For this reason if you are accompanying a child please wait until Bella has allowed your child into the venue before you leave.

Please follow the one way systems in place at each venue.

Please keep socially distanced at all times.

Additional Information

These rules are to try and keep everyone as safe as possible. They are in accordance with government guidelines and are constantly maintained & updated. Bella cannot 100% guarantee that we will be safe from the virus at all times however these rules & regulations are in place to make it as safe as possible.

Each venue is unique and so several risk assessments have been made to ensure the safety & the correct regulations have been put in place.

All equipment is thoroughly cleaned between each class. Equipment that is difficult to clean is quarantined for 3 days (72hours). This is another reason Bella would strongly recommend the purchase of your own equipment as it will greatly help her in reducing the amount of equipment borrowed.

When wearing your face mask please ensure it is fitted correctly and covers your nose & mouth. Coming soon Vixens own reusable face mask! Contact Bella for more information. For more reusable face masks visit Emma’s Earth Eco-friendly reusable products homemade in by EmmasEarthShop (etsy.com)
