How hard would the workshops be physically, and what's your liability + -
By enrolling in any of our workshops/classes, you agree to be responsible for your own well-being, partaking in classes sensibly and safely, working within your own abilities and under the guidance of your teacher.
You should not exercise beyond your own abilities. If you know or are concerned that you have a medical condition which might interfere with you exercising safely before you attend any of these workshops, you should get advice from a relevant medical professional.
No liability is accepted for any loss or damage of any articles you may bring to classes.
Do I need a partner to come to some of these classes? + -
No, most of our students come alone. We will balance the amount of female and male attendance so everyone gets a partner. You don’t need a partner to join any of our classes.
How much physical contact is involved? + -
Dancing is a physical skill that requires guiding the student in physical movements by touch. Any contact is made with sensitivity and care, talking to the student about what they will do.
During dance classes, some contact by the teacher is made, with particular awareness of the needs of each individual, to assist dancers in correcting placement. We accept that, on some occasions, adjusting body parts (significantly younger students) is necessary. This is to demonstrate the correct placement of the hands and body and help a participant feel an accurate limb position to avoid injury if a move is incorrectly performed.
While essential, touch can sometimes be misinterpreted; the guidelines below are in place to safeguard staff and students attending these workshops.
-Teachers will initially use description and imagery to help participants feel a movement and use touch to help with correction only if the imagery isn’t helping.
-Touch will be accompanied by verbal instruction and will never be a surprise to the participant.
-When using touch to correct a participant’s placement, teachers will use a finger/s or palm and may touch their rib cage, thigh, back, buttock, arm, hand, or foot.
-When using touch to help someone at risk of falling/ injury, teachers will touch with their hands.
-When a teacher uses touch, they will do this with knowledge of that individual participant’s needs.
-If a participant feels uncomfortable regarding appropriate touch, we encourage them to talk with their teacher.
Who can I contact if I need more help? + -
Apart from our staff and receptionist, you can get extra help, support and information about our classes and any other matter relating to the Acosta Dance Foundation and the Acosta Dance Centre by emailing [email protected]
