If a class has insufficient enrollment (5 or less participants) it will be cancelled 24 hours in advance.

To avoid being charged the full price of the class; cancellations must be made at least 48 hours before the day of the class. To cancel your spot in a class, contact Lynne Hazelwood at 540-921-0340. A full refund can be issued if requested AT LEAST 48-HOURS prior to class. We will, however, accept a name transfer if you would like to fill your slot for the class with a friend, family member or colleague up to the date of the class.
