VIDEO / CCTV
Dance for Life Academy’s Marketing and Communications team routinely captures images and videos in studio and at events for promotional use on the Dance for Life Academy (DFLA) website, social media channels, and/or print materials.
In cases where individuals are clearly identifiable, consent will be obtained accordingly.
These images, photos and video, may be used in a range of ways to promote the work of DFLA. This might include use on the School website, the private video sharing platform, Movitanz, or as part of a school publication. The photos may also be sent to journalists for use in press articles. Some image uses are also necessary for administration and the safety of pupils, such as CCTV.
Occasionally DFLA may be involved in press photo shoots, filming, interviews or public events and event attendees may be asked to participate in these. Such activity will be for printed, broadcast media and the internet and often involves working with collaborators or partners approved by the academy. Activity of this nature always takes place under the strict control and supervision of our Marketing team and resultant material is used to promote the values of the academy.
Recording or photography by students or visitors to the school is strictly forbidden. DFLA reserves the right for the school or invited third parties to carry out general filming, photography and sound recording in or around the buildings.
DFLA live streams some classes via zoom for the purpose of making them available to those who are unable to attend.This is managed by the class teacher and admin.
Teachers also record parts of classes to share with students via Movitanz as a training tool for student home review. These videos are private and non-shareable.
By booking a class,course or event at DFLA, the participant consents to be photographed or sound recorded and to the commercial use of such film or recording without any right to payment.Any participant who objects to being photographed or recorded must indicate this by contacting us by email in advance.
