Group classes

Five-Class Punchcards—($150)$30/class

Five-class punchcards are $150 ($30/class) and can be applied toward any Thursday class or two-hour weekend workshop not taught by a guest instructor.  Punchcards expire three months from the first time they're used and can be used the same night they're purchased. 

Thursday Night Classes—$40($35 for members)

All Thursday night classes are two hours long, $40 cash or credit, $35 for LISS members and high school or college students with current ID.  Be sure to look for exact dates on the events page before you register, as the dates may not be consecutive due to holiday breaks.  Also note that LISS has a no make-up policy for absences and no-shows; see the policy page for more details.

Weekend Workshops & Crash Courses—$40($35 for members)

Intensive workshops and crash courses are typically two hours long and priced the same as Thursday night classes.  The exception to this is when we bring in guest instructors; workshops taught by guest instructors may be shorter or longer than two hours, and will typically be slightly more expensive than our regular classes.


Private Lessons

Private lessons are 55 minutes long, $85 for one lesson and $400 for a pack of five lessons. Privates can be one-on-one with a professional instructor or you can bring a partner at no extra charge (i.e., leads may bring a follow or vice versa).  All lessons must be used within one year of the date of purchase. Discounts may be available; for details, please ask an instructor before buying private lessons online.


Student Discounts—$35

We offer discount pricing for full-time high school or college students with current IDs.  $35 for all two-hour classes and workshops not taught by a guest instructor.  Please bring your ID with you to class; registration is in-person only.  Student discounts do not apply to five-class punchcards or private lessons.

General Terms and Conditions

Group classes are offered in four-week series, with classes moving ahead progressively from week to week.  Students registering for progressive group classes should plan to take all four weeks in sequence; there are no make-up classes offered for absences and no-shows.  Those who would like to drop-in on group classes are permitted to do so in the first week of a series only, after which they may choose to register for the remaining three weeks. Drop-ins after the first week of a series are by permission of the instructor only.

Refund Policy (all sales final)

There are no cash, check, or credit card refunds permitted. All sales and services expire one year from date of purchase.  In extreme cases, credits may be approved by management. These will be made in the form of studio credit only.  If a payment made by check is not honored by the student’s bank ("bounced check"), the student will be responsible to remit cash for the previous purchase along with any bank fees the studio has incurred.  Any student with a balance will not be permitted to enroll in future classes until such debt is satisfied.

Privacy Policy

The security of your personal information is very important to us. We have partnered with Mind Body, a PCI compliant vendor, to manage any and all information entered into the system, including credit card data.  We will never sell your information to any 3rd party.  We value our students and clients and want to keep it that way!

Purchase Policy

Payments for services may be made in cash, by check, or with MasterCard, VISA, American Express or Discover.Gift Certificates are available at reception or via email in all denominations and for all instructional services that we provide. [A great gift idea!] Gift certificates expire one year from date of purchase.

Cancellation Policy

If you purchase a four-week group class, you will be able to attend all the lessons for that class within that month. Unfortunately we cannot offer a credit for any missed classes or no-shows.  Note that, sometimes due to unforeseen circumstances and emergency situations, the scheduled instructor may not teach all lessons throughout the duration of a monthly class.  But don't worry, another just-as-wonderful instructor will be available to continue to work with you!
 
If you are unable to make a scheduled private lesson, you must cancel and/or reschedule at least 24 hours in advance to avoid being charged for the lesson.  Likewise, if an instructor for a private lesson is unable to make the scheduled private lesson, you will be notified at least 24 hours in advance and no charges will be made against your account.
