Cancellations (any class format)
  • Fixation Academy of Performing Arts are under no obligation to credit or refund in the event that your child is unable to attend part, or the entirety, of the classes paid for; including holidays, sickness or other reasons. We regret that we are not always able to offer an alternative for missed sessions. Wherever possible, please notify the location manager via text, email or social media message if your child is unable to attend a session.
Physically based classes

  • It is occasionally necessary to change the time or venue of a class.  This will only be done if necessary, and we will do our best to keep class times as similar as possible, but unfortunately, this cannot always be guaranteed.
  • If Fixation Academy of Performing Arts has to cancel a class with short notice then parents/carers will be informed via email or text. Please ensure you check before every class in case of a last-minute issue such as illness. In the event of Fixation Academy of Performing Arts having to cancel a session, we will issue a credit against your fees or rearrange the class.
  • When a class venue is not available on a longer-term basis (in excess of one week), on public health or other grounds outside of our control, then we cannot be responsible for providing any further sessions during that time at that venue.

We cannot accept any liability for injury or damage incurred as a result of the classes. We cannot accept liability for anything others may do or say during the class. Participation in the class is at your own risk.
  • We will endeavour to deliver the class uninterrupted, however we cannot be held responsible for technical difficulties and breaks in connectivity outside of our control. If the class ends due to technical issues before the stated end time, we will use our best endeavours to restart the class, reschedule the remaining time or add the additional time to the next class.
  • All online live classes are recorded to safeguard the tutors and students. The recordings are deleted at the end of class unless an incident occurs.
