“The Fine Print:”
Class reservations are done on a “first come first serve basis.” and require at least three registered participants in order to take place as scheduled. Because we secure your instructor and materials and supplies well in advance of class, we cannot refund your class fee. We can only provide refunds for a class when you provide us with a confirmable Doctor’s excuse that states your emergency. In the rare ocassion that we cancel, we will refund you your class fee plus give you a 10% reduction in the class fee for your next class. There is a $30 cancellation/rescheduling fee for non-deposit private lesson classes that are not given a 5 day (120hr) notice.
