Refund and Cancellation Policies
Lyric Arts does not offer refunds on workshop tuition. Students and families may cancel a registration up to one week before the workshop begins, in which case the purchaser will be given a credit in our system to use toward tuition for a future workshop, show tickets, Lyric Arts merchandise, etc. No refunds or credits will be given if a registration is cancelled less than one week before the workshop begins.
We want all students to be satisfied with their experience at Lyric Arts. If, after the first day of class, a student decides not to continue, we will refund your tuition less a $25 registration fee. After a student has completed the second day of class, no refunds or credits will be given.
In the event that enrollment for a particular workshop is insufficient, Lyric Arts reserves the right to cancel any workshop. Minimum enrollment must be reached by each term’s (Fall, Winter/Spring, Summer) registration deadline. If a workshop is cancelled due to low enrollment, all registrants will be contacted immediately and receive a full refund.
In the event that a single session of a workshop must be canceled due to instructor illness, inclement weather, etc., Lyric Arts will call each phone number provided by registrant. Calls will be made at least three hours before the session’s scheduled start time. A make-up day for the cancelled session will be scheduled.
A charge of $30 will be applied to any returned check.
Drop Off/Pick Up
Please drop off and pick up your child promptly. We have many different workshops, rehearsals, and performances scheduled in our spaces and our instructors may need to travel to offsite locations. Either an instructor or a Lyric Arts staff member will remain with any minor student until they are picked up. No student will be left unsupervised. Any student wishing to walk or drive themselves must submit written permission to the instructor from at least one parent/guardian.
SPECIAL NOTE: All students in Little Kid workshops (ages 5 & 6) must be signed in and signed out of their classroom in person by a responsible adult.
Parent Visitation Policy
We seek to create a safe space that encourages students to be creative and to build self-confidence. We have found that having parents in the room during the workshop can be distracting for all students. Observation may be allowed during the first day, with permission of the instructor. Because of our lobby hours and our staffing limitations, the Lyric Arts lobby is not open to the public except during performances. There is seating available in our second floor hallway outside of each classroom. If you or your student is uncomfortable leaving the building during your child’s workshop, please contact our Education Director, Cassandra, at 763-233-0804 and we will work something out.
Grade and Age ranges for all workshops are firm. Summer workshop students must have turned the minimum age by the first day of the workshop.
