Until June 1, a $25 non-refundable online deposit per student per class may be paid at time of reservation to guarantee your child's space. After June 1, lessons must be paid in full. Reservation will be confirmed immediately online. Balance of course fees must be paid on or before the first day of class in each session. Until June 1, if you pay in full at the time of registration (instead of paying just the $25 deposit per lesson), you will receive an additional $5 discount on each lesson. Registrations made on or after the Friday before the start of a session must be paid in full at the time of registration.

Note: Member discount of $10 will be applied to each lesson registration. Multi-child $5 discount applies to both members and non-members, but only to each lesson after the first lesson for lessons booked in a single purchase. Discounts will NOT be applied for split sessions. Also note that a minimum $5 fee will be assessed for returned checks.
