REFUNDS, CANCELLATIONS & WITHDRAWALS Kala reserves the right to cancel any class due to low enrollment or other circumstances. In this case, you will be notified and can either receive a full credit or a refund with a $25 administrative fee. Classes are not prorated, nor session dates individualized for any reason.

Adult Classes $35 administrative fee will be charged for adult class cancellations.  If you cancel your registration 14 days before the first day of class, the remainder of your class fee will be refunded, or you can apply your full class tuition as a credit towards another Kala class. With fewer than 14 days notice, you will only receive credit if we are able to fill your spot with another student.

Youth Arts Classes $50 administrative fee will be charged for youth arts class cancellations requested by participant. If you cancel your registration 30 days before the first day of class, the remainder of your class fee will be refunded, or you can apply your full class tuition as a credit towards another Kala class. With fewer than 14 days notice, you will only receive credit if we are able to fill your spot with another student.

Registrations are for a season or full academic year, and days missed due to illness or family travel will not be refunded. Because of our small group sizes, we are greatly impacted by mid-season or mid-year cancellations and withdrawals. Nevertheless, we understand that the needs of families may change during the school year. We request a two-week courtesy notice prior to withdrawals. All cancellations must be made in writing via email to gisela@kala.org.

For all withdrawals (after classes have started), a $75 withdrawal fee will apply. After the withdrawal fee has been subtracted, we will refund any pre-paid tuition, prorated for time not attended after the effective cancellation date, or you can apply this amount as a credit towards another Kala class. Credits need to be used by December 2021. Contact youtharts@kala.org if you have any questions.
