Unforunately, we do not do pro-rated credits/refunds or bill you based on how much you use your on demand, live, or cross-training access. These plans are billed monthly in a cycle specific to you. If you cancel one of your plans, you'll have the rest of the month to use your access and then the account will close when your billing cycle ends.
I purchased a single class on demand and started the date for today but, I won't be able to start classses until next week. It says my class expires in 4 months! Help!
All classes on the on demand single class purchase will expire 3 to 4 months when the "semester" of classes is over. This allows the dancer to choose their start date when they want and begin access at that start date. At this time, when access is opened you'll have 3-4 months (based on the course) to complete a single semester of classes.
I have specific questions about live or on demand refunds
