FAIR TRADE OPTION
We have a fair trade price for those of you who (if your own budget allows) would like to support us by giving a little extra.
The fair trade option is completely optional (no pressure at all!) and works out at less than 1.30 euros extra per class.
The payment details will display after you click submit and you will also receive them via email. Please arrange for payment to be made as soon as possible and within 7 days of your registration. If we haven't received payment within this period, we will make your place available to someone else.
By registering, you confirm you have read and agreed to the terms and conditions.
Every student is different and every level lasts as long as you need it to!
We believe in taking our time and helping students to achieve their full potential on the dancefloor.
We will give you honest feedback about which level will help you learn best based on where you are right now.
As a general guide, most students will spend:
- at least 1 trimester in Level 1
- at least 2-3 trimesters in Level 2
- at least 3 trimesters in Level 3
New students are strongly recommended to start with Level 1. Even if - or especially if! - you have experience in other dance styles ;-)
Level 1 is where we lay solid foundations for the rest of your forró adventure and where you will learn how forró is both similar and different to other couple dances.
If you already dance forró but you're a new student in Brussels, get in touch - we'll do our best to orient you to the most suitable level.
If you have any questions about which level would suit you best, don't hesitate to drop us an email (email@example.com) and we'll help you decide.
Hopefully this section will soon be obsolete, but for full transparency, we'll keep it for now!
What are the current measures in place?
There are currently no measures limiting sporting activities or social dancing! We just ask that if you are unwell, you stay at home.
What if the coronavirus measures change during the trimester?
Experience has shown us that trying to predict the future, especially during a global pandemic, is...unwise!
So instead of trying to plan for every possibility in advance, we will follow any changes to the measures closely and make the best decision possible with the information available at that time.
What you need to know:
📣 We will communicate all changes to you as clearly and proactively as possible.
📣 If the CST is re-introduced, we will provide a pro-rata refund or credit to any students who can no longer continue to attend the classes.
📣 If we need to adapt the classes to respect the measures in force:
- we will make the best decision we can based on the information available at the time, and
- we will prioritise the social and fun elements of our forró classes as much as possible.
📣 You will not pay for classes which don't take place.
📣 If we are forced to interrupt the trimester, you will be able to transfer your remaining 'credit' to a future trimester, or request a pro-rata refund.
