Summer Bootcamp Terms and Conditions

Please read the following terms and conditions relating to the Summer Bootcamps BEFORE filling in the booking form.

Application Process, Payment and Fees

The cost of each Bootcamp is as follows –

  • Dance Bootcamp – £150
  • Musical Theatre week – £175

Early drop off and late pick up are available upon request for a small fee of £5 each.

Upon receipt of full payment for the Summer Bootcamp, you enter into a contract with Jamie Lee Dance Academy (JLDA) and confirm that you wish to accept the offer of a place. You are therefore subject to the terms and conditions of a Summer Bootcamp booking, as set out on this page.

Hours

All Summer Bootcamps will run from 10:00am to 3:00pm except for the Senior Musical Theatre Week, which will run from 10:00am to 4:00pm.

Any un-authorised early drop-offs or late pick-ups will be charged at £10.00 each.

Uniform

Students should wear suitable clothes for the Bootcamp they are attending eg leotard/tights/vests/leggings/shorts. Leotards are recommended for Acro and some sort of dance shoe must be worn eg ballet/jazz shoes or grippy socks for Acro. Under current guidelines classes cannot be taken barefoot and students will not be permitted to participate if they do not have appropriate footwear.

Hair must be tied up and off the face.

All jewellry must be removed before arriving at the studios. New earrings must be covered with tape.

It is advised that clothes are washed following a day in the studio.  On alternate days, students are asked to wear alternative clothing suitable to dance and move around in comfortably. All items of clothing and personal belongings MUST be clearly named.

Arrivals and Departures

A one-way system will operate for entry and exit to the Studio.  Each Bootcamp will have an allocated entry door, drop off and pick up times.

Parents/Guardians are requested to drop their child off at the appropriate door and then leave. Parents are not permitted inside the Studios.

Parents/students must adhere to social distancing guidelines while waiting outside the studios and MUST NOT block the pavement for other pedestrians.

There is limited parking available outside the studios and in nearby residential streets. Parents/Guardians must park in a considerate manner to local residents and ensure they do not block any driveways.

Anybody who fails to follow these instructions will not be permitted back and will, therefore, put their child’s place at risk.

It is essential that these times and entry/collection points are adhered to. 

Only one Parent/Guardian is permitted to bring their child to the Studio. 

Parents/Carers should not gather at entrance/exit doors or enter the Studio (unless they have a pre-arranged appointment) and must maintain social distancing at all times.

Lunch and Break Times

Students will eat their lunch in their own ‘bubbles’.  Please ensure they have plenty of food and drink to last them the whole day. We ask that no fizzy drinks, chewing gum or nut products are brought in.

Handwashing and General Hygiene

All students will have their temperature taken upon arrival.

As far as possible, students from separate ‘bubbles’ will not use the toilets at the same time (although this cannot be completely guaranteed). Should any student have a toileting accident, a parent/carer will be asked to come and change them. 

Handwashing will be a top priority – all students and staff will be required to use hand gel or wash their hands thoroughly on arrival and at regular intervals throughout the day.  Activities will be undertaken to ensure the students understand the importance of hand washing.

As you would expect, regular cleaning of all areas, surfaces, activities and equipment will also be a top priority and will be undertaken throughout the day by designated members of staff.

The Studios will also be cleaned each evening.  All surfaces including barres, floors, tables, chairs, touchpoints etc will be sanitised.

If you do not feel your child is able to or would find it difficult to adhere to social distancing, then please consider whether this would be an appropriate activity for them.

Illness

If your child, or a member of your household, has a high temperature or is unwell, DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD TO THE STUDIO.  Please report their absence by leaving a message with the office on 07710 878 382.

If your child has any symptoms of COVID-19 we will expect them to be collected immediately, please ensure we hold up to date contact information.  A designated ‘isolation area’ has been set aside to be used in suspected COVID-19 cases.  Should there be a case of COVID-19 within a ‘bubble’, all members of this ‘bubble’ (including staff) will need to self-isolate and participate in testing where appropriate.

Testing should be requested via the NHS website: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/testing-for-coronavirus/ask-for-a-test-to-check-if-you-have-coronavirus   

Please advise the office of the outcome of the test as soon as possible.

For the safety of all our students and members of staff, it is essential that all these procedures are followed.  Any student or parent/carer that does not follow the guidelines that are being implemented will not be permitted to attend the Bootcamps.

Risk Assessment/Health and Safety

Our risk assessment has been updated to include COVID-19 and will continue to be reviewed and amended as required.

Cancellations and Refunds

Summer Bootcamp places are non-refundable except in extenuating circumstances.

Your child will not be permitted to participate in the Summer Bootcamp(s) if payment is not made in full within 24hrs of receipt of invoice. Late payments entitle us to cancel all relevant bookings.

If you wish to cancel/withdraw your booking please email your request to info@jamieleedanceacademy.com.

Please note the below exceptional circumstances, where the request for a refund will be considered on a case-by-case basis: You can demonstrate extenuating personal circumstances which prohibit your child from attending (for example, illness or bereavement.) Please note that supporting evidence may be requested.

We may cancel the Summer Bootcamps if we fail to recruit our minimum level of enrolments or if circumstances beyond our reasonable control prevent us from delivering it (eg COVID-19). If you have received a confirmation/invoice at the time of such cancellation, we will refund in full the fees paid by you.

The Summer Bootcamps will only take place in line with Government Guidance.  Should the guidance change and we are unable to run the event, then all monies will be refunded.

Insurance

JLDA cannot accept liability for any loss or damage to your child’s property eg tablets/other electronic devices or possessions brought to the Summer Bootcamps. You are advised to insure your possessions accordingly.

Code of Conduct

If you are accepted to Summer Bootcamp, you will be required to comply with JLDA’s Code of Conduct.

This code sets out expectations for student behaviour and also the procedures used by JLDA in order to resolve matters when students’ behaviour is unacceptable. If you breach any of the terms set out in the Code of Student Conduct then your child may be withdrawn from the Summer Bootcamps.

  • All students and parents should conduct themselves in a caring, polite & professional manner at all times.
  • This includes whilst waiting for classes to begin and in our reception area. We have a Zero Tolerance policy towards rude or disruptive behaviour and the School Principal maintains the right to remove any offending students and/or parents from the school.
