Request information

In the information section you can contact us by email or phone

On line

Your e-mail address and text will be required in the e-mail section. A copy of your request will be sent to the email and we will reply as soon as possible.

By phone

All information that you provide to us by phone or that you leave on our office will be kept strictly confidential. 

- We prefer to talk with our customers through emails that we consider less invasive and use the phone only in case of emergency or for very important communications. (example in case of cancellation of an event due to natural events or other reasons of unavailability of the venue)


Subscription forms

On line

In our site you can register and book at our lessons and events. It is absolutely necessary to complete the form in all its parts to give us the opportunity to issue a regular invoice. We keep this data in our secure archives and collect data using the latest technologies that ensure computer security (SSL and Https).

At the venue

During lessons or events it is possible to leave name and email to which registration forms will be sent. These data will be collected through very small paper forms stored in special folders and protected in appropriate archives


Events and lessons

Registration form

During our events and lessons, we ask each participant, client and guest, to fill in a form with personal data and (in some cases) the name and telephone numbers of family members and / or acquaintances to be contacted in case of emergency. This module is very important to ensure the safety of every single person and ensure his physical well-being.

These forms are paper and will be stored in special folders and protected in appropriate archives.

Photoes and Videos

Only our lessons and events for adults can be videotaped or photographed. Photo and video of the events and lessons will be collected via smartphone and / or tablet owned by the teacher and displayed on our website.
