Class booking cancellations must be made at least 45 minutes before the start of the class. Please be courteous to those on the Waitlist by canceling in a timely manner.

You will not be reimbursed for your class pass for a booked spot with a No-show (late cancel).

Please remember that participant safety is our number one priority, and classes may be canceled at any time due to weather or other circumstances as determined by Recreation & Wellness staff.
