That means the earlier you sign up, the better the chance that you will get in the class of your choice. Once you sign up, you MUST attend THAT specific class. You cannot sign up for one class and expect to attend a different class. These are very specific. If you do not notify us of a cancellation at least 72 hours prior to the beginning of the class, you will NOT be refunded.
