Cancellation Policy

When you sign up for a class, we do require a pre-payment to hold your spot. Unfortunately, we cannot offer refunds for this fee. We keep our classes small, so other students are depending on your commitment to the date and time in order for the class to run, and for our instructors to be paid fairly. Thanks for your understanding!
