CANCELLATION AND POSTPONEMENT OF TRAINING
24 hours notice is required if you need to reschedule ANY session (including in-person private and groups classes, online phone call consultations, and private and group webinar sessions). If you provide at least 24 hours notice, your session can be rescheduled free of charge, otherwise you will be charged in full and/or lose your class credit.
If you have started Permission To Play or a Private Coaching Course and you need to take a break from class, please contact Vixen DeVille by email so we can work out a new schedule and/or return date. It is not our responsibility to chase absent students. If you remain absent from class and we do not hear from you for a period of 30 days we will assume you no longer wish to proceed with the training. Students who no longer wish to continue with training will receive no refund and will be required to fulfill any remaining payments due.
If you have purchased any class as a gift and class is yet to be scheduled, your gift certificate is valid for 12 months from the day of purchase.
If you have purchased any class as a gift, and class has been scheduled, 24 hours noticed is required in order to reschedule. Reschedule date must be within 12 months of the original purchase date.
If you have purchased a drop-in pack of four, these class credits are valid from 12 months of purchase.
Attendance, Preparation and Performance
All classes except for “Unleash Your Inner Vixen” and “Secrets of Fire Eating” require you to prepare for class. Students who have not completed their preparation may not gain the full benefit of the session, and, in turn may not achieve their goals within their ideal timeline. However, please do not use lack of preparation as an excuse to be absent from class – if you’re unprepared because you’re struggling and feeling blocked, come to class so we can work through it together. If you’re just unprepared because you “couldn’t be bothered” then Vixen DeVille is limited in how she can work with you during your session.
While all students are guaranteed the opportunity to perform in a professional LA based show as part of Permission To Play, you are only given a performance slot once you have shown proof that you will be ready to perform on that date – this includes but is not limited to:
- Having chosen your music track whether edited or unedited.
- Having made specific choices on costume, both opening and closing images.
- Having collated the majority of your props and costumes and using them in class.
- Having a solid choreographed opening, at least a rough choreographed middle and a definite idea of how you intend to end the piece.
Just because you buy a book, it doesn’t mean you have read and consumed it’s contents. Just because you signed up for class doesn’t mean you will automatically be on stage in 8 weeks time. You need to turn up for class and do the work required in order to be allocated a performance slot. Vixen DeVille will do her best to get you stage-ready as soon as possible. If you are unable to attend class, you are more than welcome to email video footage of your act and progress for review. You get out of this what you put in, if you don’t do the work, you won’t have an act.
Once you are booked for a performance slot, all communication regarding the booking will be between you and the producer. You will be emailed information on your call time and other details of the show. You are responsible for providing the producer with all the materials necessary for your booking including but not limited to:
- Promotional picture of you for use on social media and printed promotional materials.
- MP3 of your music.
- Your tagline/introduction.
- Stage notes on your act set-up and pick-up.
Any cancellations for your stage performance are greatly discouraged, but, if unavoidable, they are to be made directly with the Producer and NOT with Vixen DeVille. You are not guaranteed a reschedule when cancelling a booking.
You are permitted to join a group class if arriving late but it is not guaranteed that you will get to work during the session. If arriving late to a private booking, whether a one-on-one session or private party it is not guaranteed that you will then get to make-up for the late arrival at the end of the session. If you are more than 30 minutes late to a private booking, this is interpreted as a cancellation and you will forfeit the booking with no refund and/or you will lose your class credit.
All class times are subject to change at Vixen DeVille’s discretion.
Full payment is required to book a Private Lesson. 24 hours advance notice is required to reschedule your Private Lesson. Payment is non-refundable unless canceled more than 30 days prior to lesson date. Any and all rescheduling will be at the sole discretion of Vixen DeVille and subject to availability.
When booking a private event you will be sent a contract to sign – please refer to your contract for more information on absence and late arrival.
On signing your contract you will be required to pay at least 50% deposit to schedule your private event.
You will receive a full refund or may choose to reschedule if doing so within 72 hours of purchase and at least 2 weeks before the date of the scheduled event.
Should you wish to cancel the booking later that 2 weeks prior to the scheduled event you will receive a 50% refund of the entire fee or may choose to reschedule. Any cancellation made later than 72 hours prior to the scheduled event will result in a forfeit of the entire fee and cannot be rescheduled.
If you reschedule an event the cancellation policy is based on the original purchase time and original start date of that event.
Should Service Provider (Vixen DeVille) cancel at any time and be unable to provide a replacement, then Client will receive a full refund.
