How do I reschedule or cancel a lesson?
What if it is past the deadline and I need to cancel my lesson?
You can definitely do that. We understand that things come up, however lessons canceled after the deadline will not be rescheduled or made-up. Please notify your instructor immediately if you need to cancel last minute.
What if I or my child is sick?
As a reminder, ALL reschedules must be submitted (here) on our website under the resources page before midnight of the lesson in question. Lessons can still be canceled if it is after the deadline, but those lessons won’t be made up. We realize that sometimes you don’t know until the last minute if you’re going to have to cancel, but with only limited time slots and instructors, this is a policy item that we operate by regardless of the reason of cancellation.
