    • Courses of 4 days or longer will time out at least 7 days ahead of any event, sometimes longer.  

  • Spiderflower runs a personalised service and does not operate a drop-in facility for any class or course.

DEPOSIT + CANCELLATION

 

  • DEPOSIT + SPIDERFLOWER CANCELLATION

In the event of Spiderflower needing to cancel an event - all course fees to include deposits are refunded directly.

  • DEPOSIT + PARTICIPANT CANCELLATION

Due to COVID-19, Spiderflower endeavours to offer a flexible cancellation policy as possible. However, Spiderflower has not been in receipt of ANY government support throughout out the pandemic, and is continuing to self-sustain.  As a result, we must cover base costs in the event of a participants cancellation, particularly where courses have been booked as bespoke for a group or organisation as a LIVE / IN-PERSON event.  For this reason, the price for any non-refundable deposits has been kept as reasonable as possible.

ONLINE CLASSES: Shorter classes are only available via the MEMBERSHIP programme at present. Participants need to subscribe to gain access. Monthly payment is taken in advance and offers no refund.  A participant can cancel their subscription at any time and no further payment will be taken.

 

ONLINE COURSES: Deposits are taken to hold your place and cover the cost of any pathwork or literature participants receive. In this case, deposits are always non-refundable. Full payment is required 14 days ahead of an event going live.  Participants may cancel at any time prior to the course starting and receive a refund of course fees paid, less the deposit.

 

PRE-SCHEDULED / IN-PERSON COURSES:  Deposits are taken on booking to hold your place and are always non-refundable. Full Payment must be made 21 days prior to any event. If a participant cancels at any time on or after the 21 day threshold, course payments made are refunded less the deposit.

BESPOKE BOOKINGS FOR ORGANISATIONS:  A 50% Deposit will be required upon booking, which is non-refundable in the event of an organisation cancelling a course of bespoke work.  Full payment must be made 21 days prior to any course.  For cancellation made on or after the 21 day threshold, course payment is refunded less the deposit.

OTHER IMPORTANT PRACTICS

PREPARATION & PATHWORK

Preparation is designed to help a participant get the very most out of any dance. It is an important element to Spiderflower's work as it readies students on many levels. Pathwork asks you to 'quest' upon certain elements of a course and is given beforehand. This gives plenty of breathing space to reflect upon key elements presented, feel out and process the pathwork internally. Students who embrace the pathwork will find they can access deeper levels of the work much more quickly. 

 

ARTISTIC PERSPECTIVE

Participants are expected to follow the ettiquette naturally found within a theatre environment.  Although the work is transformational - it is not a therapy form.

 

WORKING ON THE LAND

When the work takes us out onto the land, allowing the body to be with, listen to and learn from specific places are important to each particular block of work. Participants are expected to respect the natural boundaries of a place we are working from (e.g. observing National Trust regulations and boundaries, remaining mindful not to stray onto farmers or private land, being respectful and of any venues ground rules for both inside and outdoor work).  

 

Participants will need to bring along suitable outdoor gear and will be advised on booking.

Please go to GUIDANCE for more detail on working practice and what to expect.
