Code of Conduct

Jan 9th, 2018

**deutsche Version siehe weiter unten

Julep Jazz Workshops are a private swing dance event and is intended to be a safe place that sometimes takes you out of your comfort zone. In that sense, and in that sense only, it is designed to be a risky place. We want you to push yourself, learn new things, and meet people who will challenge you in whatever corner of the arts you pursue.

We believe in humor and the power of not taking oneself seriously. We believe that the world is micro-managed to an annoying degree, and that after a day of work, deadlines, people who are takers and not givers, and socially awkward bosses, you should be able to unwind in an adult environment where you can see and participate in something real.
In order to make this happen, however, we have a small list of expectations:

This environment is for everyone regardless of gender/gender identity, race, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, religion, or whatever. We do not tolerate harassment of any kind. If you harass someone, you may be asked to leave; you may be banned. It is at our discretion so just don’t do it.
In keeping with the above, don’t use misogynist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist, or racist language. It’s not only wrong, it’s embarrassing and in poor form.
To be super-duper clear: No forms of harassment will be tolerated, which can include offensive verbal comments, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of workshops or other events, inappropriate physical contact and unwelcome sexual attention, whether in person or online. Anyone engaging in this type of behavior will be warned and/or ejected from the event without a refund at the organizer’s discretion.
Generally behave like an adult human being. We welcome every lifestyle and every flavor of person, but be respectful.

Should you have any harassment-related complaints or witness something happening to someone else, please bring your concerns. You can contact Maren at or in person at any event. If you feel uncomfortable to speak to Maren directly feel free to talk to any other teacher or volunteer/staff of any of the JulepJazz Workshops. We will treat these issues with the strictest confidentiality. Your courage in coming forward can keep incidents from being repeated.
Another way of contacting us anonymously is trough sarahara. At you can let us know whatever you want with or without letting us know who you are!

Und weil es so wichtig ist noch mal auf deutsch:

Wir tolerieren keinerlei Belästigung. Wenn du jemanden absichtlich belästigst, wirst du womöglich aufgefordert die Veranstaltung zu verlassen. Es erliegt unserem Ermessen. Lass es lieber sein.

Diese Veranstaltungen sind für alle Personen, unabhängig von Geschlecht, Religion, sexueller Orientierung, Herkunft, Behinderungen, körperlichen Fähigkeiten, äußerem Erscheinungsbild, politischen Standpunkten, etc.  Komm, wie du bist.
Ergänzend dazu: Wir tolerieren  kein sexistisches, rassistisches, homophobisches, transphobisches, ableistisches oder jegliches anderes diskriminierendes Verhalten. Behandle die anderen, wie du selbst behandelt werden willst.

Solltest du Fragen oder Beschwerden haben oder dir fällt etwas auf: lass es uns bitte wissen. Du kannst Maren persönlich oder via Mail unter kontaktieren. Sollte es dir aus irgendeinem Grund unangenehm sein mit Maren zu sprechen, wende dich bitte an eine andere Person, die bei deinem Julep Jazz Event mitarbeitet oder schicke uns eine anonyme Nachricht unter Wir werden diese Belange mit größter Sorgfalt und Vertraulichkeit behandeln. Darüber zu sprechen kann Vorfälle vorbeugen.
