PRIVATE LESSONS

Scheduling of Private Lessons: 
Private Dance Lessons can be scheduled during our office hours with the available dance instructors. When scheduling a private lesson, you will be notified by email about the scheduling. This is a confirmation that your lesson has been scheduled.

Cancellation & Rescheduling:
We work very hard to accommodate our students’ schedules while making sure our dance instructors have a balanced schedule as well. For all cancellations and rescheduling of private lessons, we require a 24-hour notice during our office hours which are Monday-Friday, 12pm-10pm and Saturday 9am-4pm. We ask our students to give us a call during our office hours (no emails or voicemails please). This way you avoid being charged for the full amount of the lesson.

Installment Agreement:
Hudson Dance Studio offers a variety of payment options to make it most convenient to our students. When choosing an installment agreement, your card will be saved on file and will automatically be charged after the number of prepaid dance lessons is completed. Please keep in mind that we will not notify you in person, but you will receive an email confirming the payment. When signing up for a package of private lessons, you agree to the full number of lessons in the package. We don’t provide any refunds under any circumstances. Private lesson packages must be completed within the designated period of time. All expiration dates are final.
