If a class is cancelled, we will inform you of the cancellation within 7 days of the class and we will refund your payment in full.

Students, who cancel prior to 14 days of the date of the class, will receive a refund minus the $20 cancellation fee. No refunds will be issued for cancellations and class fees will be forfeited if students cancel 14 days or less from the date of the class unless we can fill your place with another student. If we can find a replacement for you, we will then issue a refund minus the $20 cancellation fee. We reserve the right to deviate from this policy at our discretion on an individual basis.
