No refunds will be issued after the start date of the class, however, we will issue credit valid for 12 months from the start date of the canceled program if the registration is canceled before the third class of the session. No refunds or credit will be granted after the start of the third class other than for serious illness or injury with medical documentation provided. Cancellation requests must be received in writing (email@example.com) and can only be processed by management. Credits are non-transferable and non-refundable. Please note that classes may switch from in-studio to online formats at any point in a session as mandated by Alberta Health Services.

- If your guest would like to take pictures or film the class, please let your instructor know so that she can ask the other participants if they have any issues with pictures being taken. Due to FOIP, it is important that we respect individuals rights not to have their picture taken.
- Please introduce the guest to your instructor so they know who the person watching the class is.

Class cancellation due to instructor illness or inclement weather
In the event that J'Adore Dance is required to cancel a class due to instructor illness or emergency, we will do our best to find a suitable substitute instructor or book a make up class that will occur at the end of the session or during mid-term break. If we cannot schedule a substitute instructor or make up class, registered participants will receive a class credit that may be applied to a drop in class, make-up class, or future class registration.
