Die hier genannten Allgemeinen Geschäftsbedingungen bilden die Grundlage aller Angebote und Leistungen von
Mag. Joanna Swietek BA unter dem Namen cubaila viena.

1 General
As a mobile dance studio, cubaila viena offers courses, workshops and events relating to Afrocuban dances – Salsa Cubana (Casino), Rueda de Casino, Timba, Rumba (Guaguancó, Yambu, Columbia), Afrocubano (Yoruba, Arara, Congo), Son Cubano and Reggaeton/Reparto – in Vienna. Our program does not overlap with that of Viennese dance schools.

By acquiring the right to participate in a cubaila viena event the participant accepts the Terms & Conditions as well as the house rules at the course, workshop or event location.

1.3 cubaila viena reserves the right to make changes to the Terms & Conditions as well as the house rules in effect. Clients agree to receiving information on such changes in writing via email.

1.4 All prices or fees are quoted in Euro and, unless stated otherwise, per person incl. taxes. For products offered on the Internet only cashless payment is available. Details can be found in the product descriptions and their terms of payment.

2 Registration and Payment Transaction
2.1 By submitting the electronic registration the client acquires the right to participate in the respective course, workshop or event and therewith assumes liability to pay the respective fee. An automated message to the email address entered during registration immediately confirms receipt of the registration. Upon verification, within a maximum of 48 hours, the client receives the invoice for transferring the course/workshop/event fee also at the email address given.

2.2 The amount shown in the invoice is to be transferred in such a way that it is received into the event organizer's account in full (i.e. without deduction of possible bank or transfer charges) within the payment period specified, at the latest by the start of the course/workshop/event. If this is not possible due to last-minute registration, the client must show proof of payment transfer either by advance email message to the organizer or at the event check-in. Without verifiable payment of the course/workshop/event fee, participation is not possible in this case.

2.3 If the payment period specified in the invoice is not met, the registration will be moved to the end of the list until receipt of the payment and the space in the course/workshop/event will be given to the next person on the waitlist, if there is one. Should the course/workshop/event be sold out before receipt of the payment, the registration is automatically void.

2.4 If the invoice has not been paid by the start of the course/workshop/event, the registration will be deleted from the system and the respective person barred from registering for cubaila viena events for one year from the date of the invoice.

3 Prerequisites and Right to Participate
3.1 Course/workshop/event registration is only possible if the prerequisites specified on the registration page (e.g. prior competences, age group, role, ...) are met. Adhering to possible prerequisites is the client's responsibility and will be checked by the organizer at the start of the course/workshop/event just as receipt of payment. If the client is unsure about possible prerequisites, he/she may check by contacting

3.2 If possible prerequisites are not met, participation in the respective course/workshop is not possible despite registration. Upon consultation with the dance instructor and based on availability of spaces, the client may switch to another course/workshop that is suitable. If the newly selected course is more expensive, an additional invoice will be issued to cover the difference. If the newly selected course costs less, the difference is forfeited. If there is no alternative to the wrongly registered course/workshop, the right to participate is voided entirely; a refund is not possible.

3.3 When claiming a discount, the client is responsible to provide proof of eligibility before or at the start of the event. If proof of eligibility cannot be provided, the client will be invoiced for the difference.

4 Rights of Rescission and Transfer
4.1 Purchased rights to participate may not be returned. Every course, workshop or event booking is binding and obliges to payment for the order. Due to the statutory exception as per Art. 18 para 1(10) FAGG (Austrian Distance Selling Act) for services rendered in connection with leisure activities, there is no right of rescission.

4.2 For courses lasting several weeks, the purchased right to participate may be conferred on another person meeting all prerequisites (dance role, dance level, age, ...) if applicable until the 2nd course session; for an individual workshop or event until 24 hours before the start of the event.

5 Event Cancelation
