How classes are formed:

When all registrations forms and payments are turned in, we match students by age, ability, days and time frame and instructor that you requested. This is a time consuming process but it gives you control over the days, times and instructor you want or need.

We try to keep siblings in back to back classes or around the same time. If we cannot accommodate your requests you will be given options of other days, or other times or other sessions. If you forward it to another session you will be first on the waitlist. We will never keep your payment if we cannot find you a spot in the session, days or timeframe you requested. Please review the policy form on how to get a refund or roll your payment to another session. Review the Cancellation, Refund and Makeup on the policy form as we charge fees and have deadlines for refunds, cancellations and non illness makeup’s or fees for not following protocol.
