Payment Conditions
Classes have to be paid in full and advance according to the specifics on the invoice- Appointments on a very short notice can be offered against a payment in cash at the beginning of the class - in full. Other payment options can be arranged at my discretion.

Changing of dates / NO-SHOW
After the definitive sign up for a class (with accepting the quote / invoice) the pre-arranged dates can be changed if necessary at my discretion. Payd for classes are usually valid only for 12 month from the date of the invoice unless otherwise agreed upon in advance.

Changing appointmentsIf you need to change a date you can do so maximally within six month. Short notice changes (1 week or less) 25% of the price for the specific day are forfeit.

CancellationsIf a definitively booked class will be cancelled by the customer - it has to be done so at least four weeks in advance but at absolute minimum before the due date of the invoice! Cancellation with shorter notices will cause a complete void of refund, the invoice if not paid will have to be paid none the less. For valid reasons given, an appointment’s date can be changed (see above).
