To follow are policy points for the studio. We take our studio’s policy seriously, so please familiarize yourself with it before scheduling any classes. Some??sessions may have additional points so please be sure to read everything fullly when completing the registration process.??
*At Descending Angels, we pride ourselves on being a welcoming, safe environment for all adults to explore movement. This is a safe space for all genders, orientations and all walks of life. Body shaming, slut shaming, bullying or other negativity is simply not allowed and will not be tolerated.
*Purchases are non-refundable.
*Packages cannot be shared or transferred to other students.
*Please arrive in time for class. We recommend arriving about 10 minutes early so that you may get settled before we begin. We cannot stress this enough – NO LATE ARRIVALS ADMITTED FOR ANY REASON – NO REFUND, NO RESCHEDULING/CREDIT. It does not matter if you arrive one minute late or 15 minutes late. Once we begin, no disruptions to the class, please. Be considerate of your fellow classmates and studio instructors as we set an atmosphere for safety, learning and clearing of distractions. Another major reason as to why we do not allow late arrivals is due to safety for the body. Each student needs a full and proper warm-up for the lesson ahead to safely prepare the body for dance and movement. Please check the sign on the door. If it says “Do not disturb”, it means just that. Do not enter and disrupt the class that is in session. If arriving early, please do not enter and disrupt the previous class. Please wait until we dismiss and flip the sign. Please consider traffic, special events and parking when scheduling your time. We do not refund/credit if you miscalculate time, encounter heavy traffic, get lost (we are very easy to find and listed in Google maps), have a scheduling conflict, etc. Also, we have a schedule to maintain – both for the studio and for your fellow classmates – do not call/text asking that we wait to start the class for everyone because you are running behind. Please be considerate of others that you share this space with.
*A full 24 hours notice is required for rescheduling group or private classes, for ANY reason. You may reschedule your session by simply signing into your Bookeo account. If less than 24 hours notice is given, for ANY reason, you will be charged for the class. (Does not include workshops, series/courses, special events or parties. These cannot be refunded or rescheduled.). If you are unable to access your Bookeo account, please call or text the studio to cancel/reschedule – do not email or message through social media. This will help insure the studio knows as soon as possible and take make the corrective changes. If you go through an unapproved means (email/social media messenger), you may not receive credit for your class as not all intructors have access to these.
*If canceling with less than 24 hours notice, please text the studio (not email, social media, etc.). No-shows reflect negatively in your student history so please give us a head’s up if you will not be attending class.
