You must be 16 to participate in our adult classes - or have permission in advance of registration.
We accept cash, personal checks, money orders, traveler's checks and Visa and MasterCard.

Remaining balance of the class fee is due 7 days prior to the start of classes.
We reserve the right to cancel a class if minimum enrollments are not met, in which case all tuition and fees will be refunded. Notification of cancellation will be made by phone at least 1 day prior to the start of the class, at which time students will be offered the option of another class, space permitting, or a full refund.
No refunds of any payment will be made for notification of withdrawal within 7 days of the start of the class. Prior to that time, we will refund your tuition minus a $25 non-refundable registration fee.
