Terms and Conditions


1. Dance Base strives for best practice in fundraising and take data protection very seriously. We are transparent with our donors and supporters, ensuring that our fundraising is legal, open, honest and respectful. 

2. Friends membership payments are non-refundable donations.  

3. Friends membership lasts for 12 months. If you pay monthly you have agreed to pay for 12 consecutive months. 

4. Membership can be purchased either in-person from the reception desk, by phone, or online via the Dance Base website.  

5. When you pay online you agree to allow Dance Base to save your card details for monthly payments or annual renewal payments.  

6. Your membership will be renewed unless you advise us that you would like to cancel your membership at least 7 days before the renewal date.  

7. Regardless of whether you pay annually or monthly, we will contact you 3 weeks before your membership end date to confirm your renewal and the payment level for continued membership.  

8. Priority booking for classes will open 24h in advance of public booking and last for 23 hours. Please note that priority booking will close for an hour before public booking to allow for technical work ahead of the public booking.  

9. We will ensure that spaces are kept available for all classes for public onsale (i.e. non-Friends). Therefore a class that appears sold out during priority booking, will have places available when public booking opens.  There will be no priority given to Friends members during the public booking period. 

10. Friends members will be able to book an additional place for their partner so that both participants can attend partner classes together; the partner does not need to have a Friends membership. 

11. Friends members will be able to book places for a child/children to attend appropriate classes; the child participant does not need to have a Friends membership. 

12. We reserve the right to change Friends benefits should it be necessary. We will always communicate significant changes in advance and provide the option for a pro rata refund should you not agree with the changes.  

13. We will regularly review the Friends pricing and may increase prices in future years. The price you pay will only increase at your membership renewal (every 12 months from your start date). We will communicate price increases in writing at least a month in advance.  

14. Friends benefits are for the personal use of Friends only. Benefits, including priority booking, events and invitations are not transferable. The only exceptions are when booking for a child/young adult you have caring responsibilities for, or when booking for a partner for a partner dance class.  

15. Gift Aid can only be claimed on the Friends donations when we have a valid Gift Aid declaration on file. You can make a declaration in writing or verbally to a member of the Dance Base team (which we will confirm in writing).  

16. To be eligible for Gift Aid you must be a UK taxpayer and have paid at least the same amount of UK income tax or capital gains tax as we would reclaim on your donation.
