Cancellation by Participant:

Once you have purchased the spot, you own it. So please make sure you can come before you pay. There are no holds on spots without payment.

No refunds or transfers to another date or class will be given regardless of the reason or the amount of notice time provided. However, we always appreciate the notification. Please feel free to send a friend in your place.
