What is your cancellation policy for studio rentals?
DanceGardenLA has a 24 hour cancellation/change policy. If you cancel or reschedule less than 24 hours before your booking is scheduled to begin, you will be charged for the full booking. This policy also applies to "same day" bookings. If you are booking a room for the same day or less than 24 hours in advance, that booking will be considered a confirmed booking and will not be able to be changed or canceled without payment.
What is your cancellation policy for classes?
DanceGardenLA has a very easy cancellation policy for our ongoing classes.
If you preregistered and can no longer take a class, as long as you cancel before the class starts then we will credit that class back to your account. Just be sure to use the credit before its expiration date.
If you don't cancel and don't show up for class, your account will not be credited for that class.
What are the benefits and terms of your VIP Membership?
The VIP Membership is the best way to save on classes if you intend to come more than 6 times per month.
You will receive 25% off of select workshops DGLA offers, student troupe rehearsals, and special topic courses. You will also receive 10% off of any DGLA merchandise.
Every month, you can invite 2 free guests. However, it must be only one guest at a time, and they must be new to DanceGardenLA, or not active in the last 12 months. You have to physically be there to accompany your guests to class.
TERMS & CONDITIONS
We try to keep our contract as flexible as possible. So, there are no long commitments. The contract is month to month.
You can contact us to cancel at any time, but you will be able to finish out your month. Membership cancellations take effect at the time of your next autopay. So as long as you cancel before your next scheduled payment, you will not be charged for that upcoming month.
Optional membership freeze. Instead of canceling your membership, you have the option to freeze your membership for $15 per month to lock in your current rate. Since rates do go up, this is a great way to maintain your original rate when you want to reinstate your membership. You will be charged $15 per month for every month your account is frozen. There are no prorated fees should you want to reinstate your membership before the monthly billing cycle is over. There are no discounts on workshops or merchandise while your account is frozen.
