Overview

FAQ

TIPS FOR ZOOM
  • Once the class begins, the teacher will automatically mute everyone to ensure that the video footage stays on the teacher. It is helpful if you can double-check this by looking in the lower left-hand corner of your screen.
  • You can unmute yourself if the teacher initiates conversation. Otherwise, all communications should come via the ‘chat’ feature during class.
  • If you find your live streaming lagging, you may turn off your camera to speed up your internet. Your name will still appear and you will still be able to be a participant in the class.
CANCELLATION & REFUNDS​
  • If you cancel your class online up to 2 hours before class start time, your class will be credited back to your account to use at a later time. 
  • If you cancel your class online within 2 hours of class start time, your spot will be forfeited and you will lose the class.
  • There are NO refunds or exchanges for the Sessions Workshops.
MAKEUP POLICY DUE TO INTERNET ISSUES
  • Internet Issues on Peridance Side: if the teacher or host drops out due to internet connectivity issues more than twice and cannot make up time by adding additional time at the end of the class, a credit will be awarded for that single class to your MindBody account for you to use at a later date.
  • Internet Issues on the student side (your side): if you have signed up and paid for a class and cannot attend due to bad internet connection, we will retain a credit for you for that class. If your internet drops during a class more than twice and you cannot complete class, please notify us at frontdesk@peridance.com and we will determine to retain you a class credit based on our class administrators report.
