TERMS OF SERVICE

1. Registration

1.1 Registration for participation in classes at the ballet school is possible in text form using the corresponding, fully completed and signed form "Registration" at the ballet school Rosenthal Ballet (Bastionstraße 9, 40213 Düsseldorf Carlstadt).

2. Tuition Agreement

2.1. The teaching contract is concluded after confirmation in text form by the school. There is no entitlement to admission.

2.2. For underage students, the application must be signed by a legal guardian of the student.

3. Duration of Contract / Lesson Times

3.1. The contract period is 3 months, beginning on the 1st of the month following the date the contract was signed. The contract is automatically extended by 3 months in each case unless it is terminated in writing by the contractual partner two months in advance. Should a young person reach the age of eighteen during the contract period, the fee will automatically be increased to the adult rate. This does not apply to trainees or students.

3.2. There are no classes on public holidays. During the school holidays in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, the lesson times, the lesson cycle and the composition of the groups can change. Missed lessons can be made up for after prior agreement.

If students do not take lessons, the obligation to continue paying the fee is not affected.

The same applies if lessons are canceled for reasons for which the school is not responsible (e.g. force majeure or illness). If possible, the school will offer to make up for the lessons.

4. Termination

4.1. The teaching contract can generally be terminated 3 months in advance. The cancellation must be received in text form by the school administration.

4.2. Only in the case of compelling reasons (e.g. long-term illness that prevents further participation in classes; relocation, etc.) can the school agree to the termination of the tuition contract without observing a period of notice, provided that the hindrance has been made credible (e.g . by submitting a medical certificate, official registration certificate).

4.3. If, after consultation with the student or his or her legal representative, the teacher and school management come to the conclusion that it does not make sense to continue teaching individual subjects, the school can terminate the teaching relationship prematurely.

4.4. The right to terminate for good cause without observing a notice period remains unaffected by the above provisions. This is the case if the terminating party cannot reasonably be expected to continue the contract until the end of the notice period, taking into account all the circumstances of the individual case and weighing up the interests of both parties.

5. Prices & Annual Fees

5.1. The prices valid at the time of conclusion of this contract apply as the agreed remuneration for the contract period. The amount results from an overview that is posted in the school administration. An overview of the applicable prices will also be provided on request. Non-teaching times (section 3.) are already taken into account in the monthly fee.

5.2. The school reserves the right to adjust the monthly fee with prior notice. The price increase will be communicated in text form at least 2 months in advance. The student has the option of extraordinary termination within one month of receiving notification of the price increase.

5.3. The student or their legal representative issues a direct debit authorization for the monthly fee. The school is billed on the first of each month for the current month.

5.4. The direct debit procedure makes the school's processing work much easier. This is already taken into account when calculating the monthly contribution. If no direct debit authorization is granted, this saving is lost, so that the monthly fee then increases by 3 euros. Payment must be made to the Rosenthal Ballet School account no later than the 5th of the month in advance:

IBAN: DE28 3005 0110 1008 1040 26, BIC: DUSSDEDDXXX, Stadtsparkasse Düsseldorf.

5.5. In the event of a delay in payment, EUR 3.00 will be charged for the first reminder and EUR 5.00 for each additional reminder.

6.3. For the duration of the shutdown, the member is exempt from paying the membership fees due during the shutdown period and cannot claim services from the ballet school.
