INCLEMENT WEATHER PROGRAM MAKE-UPS Please check the following locations for changes to our facility and program schedules. Check the Red banner at the top of every page on our website or check the Family Y Facebook and Instagram. Alternatively, you can check the outgoing voice message at the Westport Y 203-226-8981.
Currently, the Dance Center is not able to offer make ups for classes that are cancelled due to inclement weather because of limited space and instructor availability. There are no refunds or credits for weather cancellations. If you have questions, please call the Family YMCA Dance Center at 203-571-6039.
Dance Center participants register for classes on specific dates and times. If the Dance Center cancels a class for the season/session, a refund will be issued. Unless the Dance Center cancels a class and provides a makeup, attendance in scheduled classes is the responsibility of the participant. There are no refunds or credits for classes missed. There are no refunds or credits for participant withdrawal once the season/session has started. If an injury were to occur, a note from the dancer’s doctor would be needed before a refund would be considered. Costume fees that are included in our September to June tuition are non-refundable once costumes are ordered. We thank you for understanding and adhering to our policies.
