CLASS CUT-OFF. The Registration Deadline for sign up is 3 Days (72 hours) prior to class.
ALL AHS CLASSES HAVE A 4-PERSON MINIMUM. If minimum is not met, class can be cancelled.
IF WE CANCEL class for low attendance or any other reason, your payment is refunded or applied to another class or event, your choice. Cancelations take place 72 hours prior to class if needed via email.
IF YOU NEED TO CANCEL PRIOR to 72 hours before class you will receive a full refund. Any cancellations by attendees LESS than 72 hours prior to class cannot be refunded but can be applied to another class.
ALL CLASSES ARE TAUGHT BY SPECIALISTS IN THEIR FIELDS. Not by somebody “filling in” for instructor. Like Mom’s, instructors are people too and even though our track record of never canceling a class for other than low attendance speaks for itself, it is theoretically possible an instructor could have a personal emergency and need to postponed class.
Waivers will need to be signed and returned via email for any class.
