Policy Chance Announcement - Refunds

Jan. 15, 2020

Policy Change Announcement:

Due to an increase in demand for classes we are updating our policy regarding refunds.

- "We cannot refund students for classes that they have registered for but do not attend, this includes conflicts with work or travel. We will, however, provide credit for missed classes if it is for a health related reason (please stay home if you are sick) or death of close friend/family."

- "We do not sell partial class series or pro-rated classes."

While it is great people are excited about classes and registering in advance, many people want to take classes are unable to do so because they are full.

When people cancel registration part of the way through a class series, there is an open spot someone else could have been in class. We ask you to please keep your fellow students in mind when you register for class and only sign up when you are confident you can attend class.

What is Lindy Hop?

Lindy Hop is the original Swing Dance, developed by the Black community in Harlem in the 1920s and 1930s.  There are numerous other swing dances out there, but virtually all of them evolved out of the patterns and rhythms of the Lindy Hop.  The dance still has a large and active following throughout the world today!

You can learn more about the history of the dance from this Yehoodi film.
