All classes offered have a maximum number of seats available for each class. This is due to instructor/student ratios and also due to available equipment for each class. If you are registered for a class and need to cancel, please call and cancel as soon as possible. Failure to notify us of your cancellation prior to the class starting date may result in your course reservation fee being deposited. We reserve the right to cancel any course for which there is an insufficient number of course reservation fees submitted. All fees collected for a class that is cancelled will be sent back or forwarded to another class registration per your request.
