General terms and conditions for classes and workshops

The following general terms and conditions are valid for all classes and workshops organised by Luna Bellydance starting september 2013 for an unlimited period of time. By participating in classes or workshops, you automatically accept these terms and conditions:

About the weekly classes

In the weekly classes you will learn the basic techniques of bellydancing, such as good posture, isolating movements and dancing in harmony with the music. You will learn to handle props such as veils, canes, finger cymbals, etc ... We will be covering several topics throughout the year and learn at least one choreography. You can start with classes at any time! Want to learn specific things? Don't hesitate to ask! Every year, students will be given the opportunity to perform at the “Belly 2 Belly” festival in Maasmechelen. This is optional! All other performances will be done by Luna's showteam Indirah.

Classes are divided in different levels, according to the dancer's dancing experience. Each student can decide, after consulting Luna, to move on to the next level at any point.
An overview of the different levels:

Level 1: meant for dancers with very little to no (belly)dancing experience. The contents of this class will be repeated every year. Each students can choose to take the level 1 class multiple times in a row or to move on to the next level after a year of class. New students can start at any time.

Level 2/3: meant for dancers with a least a few months of bellydancing experience or students who have completed the level 1 class. The contents of this class changes every year, though the different topics (veil, saidi, technique, ...) rotate every 2 to 3 years. A student should therefore be in this level for about 2 to 3 years before moving on to the next level. Each students can of course choose to stay in this level for a longer period of time.

Level 4/5: meant for dancers with a least a few years of bellydancing experience. The contents of this class change every year, though the different topics rotate every 2 to 3 years, containing new material every time. This class focuses on advanced techniques and personal feedback.

Open level: this class is a mix of levels 2/3 and 4/5. We will be focussing mainly on technique for intermediate dancers, with extra options and layers for the advanced dancers!

For each class, a minimum of 10 and maximum of 30 dancers is required. Therefore, pre-enrollment is required, including for taking a taster class. Enrollment can be done through the form on this website or by sending an e-mail.

Students are requested to arrive on time for classes. Before the class starts, attendance is checked, punch cards are marked and payments are made.
Enrollments in Genk for level 1 are from 18:55-19:00, open level from 19:55-20:00. This means a class hour actually lasts 55 minutes.

All up-to-date classdates are mentioned on the website.

The amount due for all weekly classes and workshops is always mentioned on the website and in the newsletter. Payments for weekly classes are preferably done in cash and has to be done before the first class starts.

There are 2 rate options for weekly classes:

  • A student can enroll for the entire session (= cheapast rate for weekly classes, 215€ for 30 classes). If a student starts with the classes later in the year, he/she will have to pay the amount matching to the number of classes that remain. Students who enroll for the entire season also get extra benefits, such as discounts on workshops from Luna and guest teachers, free rehearsal classes, early bird prices, etc...

    There is no refund in case classes that are paid for are missed. Class money cannot be transfered to the next session. In case a student is not able to attend classes herself, she may, after consulting Luna and with a written consent of the student, have someone else take the classes from her. In case a student misses a class, she can, after consulting Luna, make up for the class in one of the other groups that are parallel with the class they are in. Classes that have been missed during the season 2015-june 2016 can be made up for until december 2016 (included).
  • A 10 classes punch card can be bought, which is valid for a period of 4 months. (price 80€). It is the responsibility of the student to bring her punch card to class and have it marked prior to the class starting. In case the student forgot her card, the drop-in rate will be charged for that class. Lessons that are not used within the period of 4 months, cannot be refunded nor compensated, you cannot make up for it in another group. 10-lesson punch cards can be used for all classes at all locations. Though they are not valid for the rehearsals of Indirah or workshops.
