Terms and Conditions Back

All ticket sales are final and we will not offer any refunds for any reason, including injury or illness. You are welcome to sell your ticket on to someone else but we will not be responsible for any aspect of this. You are welcome to use the Facebook event page to advertise your ticket and if we have time we may make a post on your behalf as well, but that is where our involvement ends.

We reserve the right to cancel or change classes at any time – we will obviously endeavour not to do this but sometimes this is out of our hands and we may have to make last minute changes.

We reserve the right to refuse entry to classes – if you book onto a class that is beyond your level we are not obligated to honour your booking and you will not receive a refund of any part of your ticket. We are not obligated to allow anyone entry to class and may refuse your entry at any time. It is entirely at our discretion to refuse entry into class for whatever reason and our decision is final. If you are refused entry into a class because the teacher believes you are not of the requisite level, this is entirely their decision and is non-negotiable. If you breach any of our class rules as below you may be asked to leave the class and will not receive a refund in any part.

Classes are of a first come first served nature and once they are full that's it. We cannot be held responsible if you didn't get all the classes you wanted nor will we be refunding your ticket if this is the case.

If you are unable to book your classes in a timely manner for any reason, including but not exclusively because you have forgotten your password to the website, you cannot load the website on the laptop or phone you are using, you are unavailable when the tickets go live, we will not be responsible for you missing out on classes you wanted.

It is your responsibility to log into the website with sufficient time BEFORE the class booking goes live to ensure that you know your password and are able to log in correctly. We will not be held responsible for password resets not arriving in time nor for any other reason that you cannot log into the site.

CLASS RULES

Please be on time for the warm up each day – if you are late and miss the warm up you are required to warm yourself up and the responsibility for being warm and ready to join the class transfers to you; no responsibility will be accepted by any teachers at MAAC if you are not physically ready to join in or sustain injuries due to being improperly warmed up.

Do not teach other students – even if you are a teacher by trade, you are not the insured and qualified teacher here and should not endeavour to teach other students, nor should you ask another student to show you how to do a move that you have not been shown by your teacher. If another student sustains an injury because you have incorrectly told them to do something then we cannot be held responsible. Additionally, if you perform a move that you have been advised to do by another student rather than your teacher, we will not be held responsible for any injuries you sustain.

Anything you undertake during the free practice sessions is entirely at your own risk and the responsibility is entirely on you to ensure you are safe – this includes using crash mats and using spotters. We will not accept any responsibility for any injuries sustained during free practice time, howsoever caused.

Aerial by nature can be risky and whilst Cloud and your MAAC teachers will do everything to minimise risk, we will not be held responsible for any injuries sustained at the convention for any reason. If you become injured you must inform your teacher or a MAAC staff member immediately so that they can take action. If your teacher or MAAC staff decide that you cannot continue to participate in class due to your injury their decision is final and unfortunately you will not be eligible for a refund.

You must wear appropriate clothing for classes – all jewellery must be removed before class – rings and bracelets can get caught on the hoops, causing injury. Any sharp or metal objects worn can tear the silks and damage our equipment. If you have an item of jewellery that you cannot remove, you may cover it with a plaster or bandage, but you will be liable for any damage of our equipment and we will not be liable for any jewellery or otherwise related injuries.

At the convention we allow anyone to take photographs and videos of their moves, but we ask that you do not video the instructor teaching the class. If you are uncomfortable being videoed or photographed you can ask your teacher and fellow students not to video you, but as the convention is all in one room it may be difficult to police this policy and as such we may not be able to prevent you from being caught on video or in the background of photos. We reserve the right to use images of participants for promotional materials.
