We require 7 days advance notice to cancel or re-schedule any Monday through Friday sessions. If the 7 day requirement is made we will gladly refund or apply your deposit to another date and time. With less than 7 days notice your deposit can be applied to another session, but only for one cancellation. This is non negotiable.
14 days of notice is required to cancel ALL weekend sessions because they fill up faster and further in advance.
