Course Organisation & Implementation

In order to conduct Courses effectively, art of motion has set a minimum and maximum number of participants. In case of an insufficient number of participants, the Course will not be run. In such a case, registered persons will be informed one week before the Course takes place. At the same time, the paid Course fees will be fully refunded or, if if desired, the fees can be transferred to another booked Course. Additional compensation may not be invoked against art of motion. If too many people register for a Course, time of payment (value date) will be used to select who will participate. If for important reasons a Course cannot be run by the specified instructor, art of motion reserves the right to change the dates, to cancel the Course, or to use other qualified teachers.

Payment Terms

After registering, the participant receives written confirmation as well as an invoice by email. Upon request, art of motion will print an invoice and send it by post. The Course fee is to be paid no later than four weeks before the Course starts; that is the date of the receipt of payment into art of motion’s account. The current tuition fees are listed on the art of motion website at www.art-of-motion.com.

Early Bird Discounts
