Terms and Conditions

 

Basic hourly rental is €15 per hour.

Weekday afternoon slots are charged at €10 per hour.

A reduced fee of €13 if a minimum of 4 weeks  is booked and paid for in advance.

New classes can have a trial of one or 2 lessons.

We will make every effort to preserve the regular weekly slots, but clashes may occasionally arise. We will notify you as soon as possible of any changes which may need to be made.

If your class continues to fail to bring in the normal income or participants and if another teacher would like to try something new at that time then we are obliged to inform you of this and we may request that you move on.

Teachers are responsible for what happens in their classes and An Sanctoir will need a copy of your insurance.  An Sanctoir does have public liability but this does not cover the teachers and their participants.

Teachers are responsible for leaving An Sanctoir tidy and with windows and doors closed.

Please leave on time if another class follows yours.

New teachers: please present trustees with a description of your class, your qualifications, and insurance policy.   We may ask that you meet with one or more trustees.

We want to support and encourage positive use of the centre, if you cannot afford the above fees perhaps there is some work you can offer in exchange.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions, problems, complaints, ideas or appreciation!  We want to stay in touch . . .

Rental for rehearsals is the same as the basic rental fee, ie €13 per hour if paid in advance, otherwise €15 per hour.

Groups planning a performance for the benefit of An Sanctoir may rehearse for free, subject to availability.

An Sanctóir is a unique venue: an holistic centre in the heart of a beautiful sanctuary, which is open to all. Owned by a trust and operated as a registered charity CHY13347, all our income goes into running the centre and maintaining the sanctuary.

  • In our experience workshops that are sponsored (by a person who wishes the workshop to happen) are more likely to be successful. We encourage all facilitators to find such a person who would promote the event, do administration, the poster and the cleaning in exchange for the workshop.
  • Teachers and facilitators are responsible for what happens in their classes and are required to have their own insurance. An Sanctoir has liability insurance but this does not cover the instructor or the participants.
  • Children must be supervised at all times as there are areas of unprotected water at An Sanctoir.

  • We would be grateful if you are able to be generous and have a space in your workshop to allow one of our (volunteer) trustees to do your workshop free of charge, let us know.
  • To encourage use of the centre we remain flexible and open to discussion about the above.
  • SPECIAL OFFER!  We are offering a midweek price for workshops on Wednesdays or Wednesdays and Thursdays of €80 per day.

Our insurance company requires you to have Public Liability cover (and Employers’ Liability if you are waiting hiring staff who do not have their own insurance).  If you would like us to put you in touch with our insurers we can.  An Sanctoir has Public Liability cover but that would not cover claims made against the organisers of the wedding.

Artists are asked to provide a  ‘creative offering’ on the final day of the residency  (this could be a performance, discussion, work in progress sharing, or however they choose to share their creative experience with our community).

We would also ask that our dance floors are respected and that shoes are not used in the main space.

The artist pays a very reduced rate of €350 (funded) €250 (unfunded) for the week.
We will take a small door fee for the creative offering to help cover our costs.
We can write letters of invitation (or whatever is needed) if the artist is applying for funding or travel expenses for the residency.
