Beginning January 2016 we will be changing our policies in an effort to cut down on costs associated with students registering for, but not showing up for class. While we understand that life happens and people get sick etc. this is a business and when people cancel last minute or simply do not show up this means empty seats and decreased profit for your instructor.
Going forward if you cancel your seat with less than 24 hours notice or simply do not show up for class 3 times, you will be required to pay a 50% non-refundable deposit for any sessions you wish to register for after the 3rd cancellation/no show.
Let's get you into this chair!
