If we receive your request to cancel no later than 10 days prior to the class, you will receive a 100% refund of the ticket fees and taxes, minus the Eventbrite payment processing and service fees (2.5% + $8).

  • If you notify us no later than 10 business days prior to the class and it's your first time rescheduling this particular registration, there will be no transfer fee. If you reschedule the same registration more than once, we will charge an additional 20% fee for each rescheduling after the first time.

  • If you notify us less than 10 business days prior to the class, we will charge an additional 10% fee if it is the first time you are rescheduling this particular registration. If the same registration needs to be rescheduled more than once, we will charge an additional 20% fee for each rescheduling after the first time.
