REFUNDS

No refunds will be given on registration fees. No refunds are offered for missed term classes. Instead CADS offers students the opportunity within the TERM of the missed class to make it up in an alternative class or day as outlined in our make-up lessons policy. The only refunds offered will be in CADS account credit and determined on a case by case basis. Planned absences like overseas trips can be discussed in advanced and arrangements made on a case by case basis.


MAKE-UP LESSONS

If you enrolled in a term class, then there is no limit to the amount of make-ups. All make-ups for term classes must be done within the term that the absences are recorded. Places are subject to availability. There there are NO refunds or credit given for missed term classes and notification must be given in writing at least 24 hours prior to your class. Remember, ‘Give to Get’. 

Make-up lessons are only valid during the term that the class has been missed. Make-up classes can be in any dance genre. They do not have to be the same genre as the class that the student has missed. Make-up classes must be in the students appropriate age and skill level. CADS cannot not guarantee availability for make-up lessons but will do our best to accomodate each individual. In the event where a make-up lesson is impossible arrangements will be decided on a case by case basis.

E.g. Sally misses her 10YRS & U Jazz Class on Monday 12th February. She has until Monday 12th March to make it up with another class in any genre offered to her age and skill level. 

A make-up lesson may not be taken in a full capacity class.

A refund will be considered only if a valid medical certificate is presented. Refunds will be processed on a case-by-case basis. Then, only credit will be applied to your CADS account to be used by you at a later date to book another class. No cash will be given nor funds deposited in your bank account. 

Maximum number of classes that can be refunded during a term: 2 classes per term class enrolled.
