TGS Classes and Programming

New classes are shared with our existing students first. You can browse the website for the different classes we offer, but pre-enrollment is done through our mailing list. The only way to get specific information about what NEW classes are coming is to subscribe in the header or footer.

We do all enrollment on a first come, first served basis and keep our class sizes small. Be sure to not only "Add to Cart" but "Checkout" to fully reserve your spot. Our classes are known to sell out.

The Growing Studio offers classes to those who are 18 years of age or over.

We only accept Debit/Credit (Visa, Mastercard, Discover) for all class payments.

PAYMENT FOR CLASSES – REFUND/WITHDRAWAL POLICY

By submitting payment for a class, class package, event, or seminar at THE GROWING STUDIO, you agree that any and all payments are NONREFUNDABLE for any reason and that the failure to attend or participate in a class is no basis for any refund. Once you have enrolled in class by making payment, your spot is secured in class. Should you need to cancel your participation in class, written notice must be received at least 5 days before the start date.  If notified at least 5 days prior, TGS will offer a CREDIT equal to the amount that has been previously paid to be used for any other class at TGS.PLEASE NOTE: Class enrollment is operated on a first-come first-served basis, regardless of payment vs. credit. CREDIT will expire 1 year from the time of issuance. CREDIT may only be used with and for THE GROWING STUDIO INC. NYC. It may not be used within the affiliate network THE GROWING STUDIO LONDON, THE GROWING STUDIO MIAMI, A1s, GEOTUS.Should you need to cancel your class less than 5 days prior to the start date, you forfeit all payments made, no credits will be given AND will be responsible for finding your own sub to fill your seat.  If a sub is not found, you will be responsible for payment of the full balance of the class regardless of attendance or participation. THE COMPANY IS UNABLE TO ISSUE REFUNDS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.

 

The company will enforce its payment policies to their fullest extent in the New York City Court System, and may engage a third party to collect amounts owed if necessary.

INSTRUCTOR CANCELLATION POLICY

In the event that an instructor cancels a class due to a change in availability, and the student is not available for the date on which the class is rescheduled, The Growing Studio, Inc. will issue a credit to the student for the cost of the single class. The student must let The Growing Studio Inc know within 24 hours of notification of the new date whether or not he or she will attend class on the new date in order to receive credit.

 

Per The Growing Studio (TGS) Policies, NO REFUNDS WILL BE ISSUED.  In the case of a mandate by the state of New York to Shelter in Place, TGS will work to issue credits for use in future programming in the amount paid by the student based on standard TGS policies.  TGS will work to reschedule any postponed programming, but cannot guarantee specific dates for any rescheduled classes or programming due to the uncertainty of the situation. 

If a student needs to miss just one date throughout the course of a series and wishes to find a sub, please email info@thegrowingstudio.com to coordinate that.

Subs are the student's responsibility, but we will happily share the wait list from the class to aid you in finding someone to take your place that day. You are also welcome to post on our Facebook Community.

Once a sub is acquired, please send their name and email to info@thegrowingstudio.com.

Payment plans are available on certain programming through enrollment on our website. Please note that an initial up front payment of $100 is required to secure your spot in the class followed by weekly installments for the remainder of the balance beginning on the start date of the class. We must receive at least partial payment at your first class. Your balance must be paid in full by the start of your third week of class, even if your series is four weeks in length or longer. All balances are due at, or before the start of the first meeting of that class each week.
