Class Policies

  1. Safety is a #1 concern. Please note that though the instructor will always work to keep the atmosphere safe, it is up to the participants to be responsible and safe. Always let the instructor know of any medical injuries! 
  2. Hygiene. Zouk is a close dance and requires excellent hygiene. At your discretion, please bring breath mints, deodorant, and spare t-shirts. If you are sick, please stay home! 
  3. Punctual. The class will begin promptly so please arrive 5 to 10 minutes early to avoid disrupting the class. We ask our instructors to arrive 30 minutes early. 
  4. Attitude. Much effort and care goes into the preparation of these classes to guarantee a great learning experience. Please always be kind to others, be positive and give your 100% to learning and listening.

Group Classes
All registration fees are non-refundable. If you are going to miss a class, please let us know at least 24 hours in advance. Given 24 hours' advance notice, we will provide you with a credit that you can then use towards another class. If you miss a class without notifying us, you will not be able to redeem the value of the class. You can catch up on missed material using the class summary videos posted weekly in the Mazouka Student Resources Facebook group, or you may book a private lesson with one of your instructors. 

Private Classes
All registration fees are non-refundable. Private classes may be rescheduled at least 24 hours before the scheduled class. Cancellations or schedule changes made less than 24 hours before the scheduled lesson time are subject to a $20 cancellation fee. Classes missed with no notice given by phone are forfeit.
