Refund and Cancellation Policies
Lyric Arts does not offer refunds on workshop tuition. Students and families may cancel a registration up to two weeks 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. No refunds or credits will be given if a registration is cancelled less than two weeks 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 the registration deadline, two weeks prior to the workshop. 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 at the side door adjacent to the parking lot. We have many different workshops, rehearsals, and performances scheduled in our spaces. 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.
Parents 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. Because of our lobby hours and our staffing limitations, the Lyric Arts lobby is not open to the public except during performances. While waiting before a class ends you may use available seating on our second floor hallway outside the studio classroom.
Workshop Age Ranges
Grade and Age ranges are guidelines for teaching artists to create content for each workshop as well as the overall comfort of the students, therefore the age ranges are set to maintain for the best quality of each class.
