STUDENT ACCOUNTS, CLASS FEES AND POLICIES
In-Studio Classes Not Available Due To COVID-19
Due to the State of CA and Los Angeles County COVID-19 restrictions, EDGE has been prohibited from holding in-person classes. We have been closed to in-person classes beginning March 15, 2020, except for a brief period in July 2020.
Because of this, we froze all active in-studio class cards until we are able to hold in-person classes again. When we can hold in-person classes all in-studio classes cards will become active with the same remaining time on the card as when it was frozen.
When able to return to in-studio classes it may still be necessary to follow distancing, face masks and other health protocols.

CLASS RATES & FEES
STUDIO CLASS CARD
Dance, Salsa and Dance-Fitness. One card.
Class Cards provide admission to class and expire 1-3 months from purchase.
Studio classes for adults are open and on-going. These classes are not enrolled or a course. Simply purchase a Class Card and use it as you go. Just sign-in on the class roster at the studio prior to your class.
Don't let your Class Card expire. Class Cards can be used for all adult open-classes. We recommend purchasing a Class Card when you start taking open-classes. Purchasing a Class Card too far in advance, may cause the Class Card to expire before intended.
Please check our online schedule for daily schedule and teacher updates. We do not notify studio dancers of teacher and class changes. We recommend that you check our online schedule prior to your arrival.
The studio teachers are in demand around the world and are active performers and choreographers. Some teachers hold class throughout the year, while others teach for shorter periods. When a studio teacher becomes unavailable, EDGE will offer the time slot to another studio teacher. This class may or may not be in the same style and level. Studio classes have a 5 student minimum, however a teacher may choose to hold the class or offer it at a different length. We do not guarantee a studio class will be held. Classes are cancelled when there are no studio teachers available.
Some classes such as Intensives and Workshops are enrolled. These classes are guaranteed to be held. Enrollees may receive email or text notifications about the class. Email and text preferences are included with your account settings.
