Cancellation Policy

We have a 48 hour cancellation policy.  If you cancel less than 48 hours before the lesson, you will be charged.

We try very hard not to cancel appointments.  If a lesson needs to be altered, we try and adjust time or find a replacement instructor if that is neccesary.

In the event that we need to cancel due to an emergency situation, serious illness, dangerous weather (high wind, thunder and lightening, etc.) or other reason and you have a prepaid credit to cover the lesson, you will retain that credit to cover your next scheduled lesson. 

We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.

Release Forms
