We'll acknowledge receipt and enrollment as soon as we receive it. Please note that a textbook is also required for all adult classes, and for children's non-beginner's classes. We'll have copies available for purchase on the first day of class. You can purchase the book at that time, or with your registration.
Makeup classes: if a student cannot make the first class of an absolute beginners class, we provide a free half-hour make up class prior to the second class. Makeup classes after that are on a per-fee basis.
Refund policy: Students have until the end of day on the first day of class to notify us of their decision to drop a class. There is a $10 administrative fee for cancellations, and a also a fee to cover the cost of first day of instruction. Because we keep our classes small and registration lean (up to the first day of class), we cannot honor refunds after first day of class.
* Rates quoted are for classes that have a minimum of 4 students. For classes with less than 4 students, additional fees may apply to keep the class open. Tuition fee does not include the cost of textbook/materials.
