What if I miss a class?
Nrityashastra would not be able to provide a separate individual session. You will be able to get a make –up class at any of our other sessions within the same month. Please note that there is no carry forward system. Call or text or email us atleast 24 hours before the class so that we can let you know of an alternative class and provide alternate options to the best of our ability.
If NrityaShastra is unable to conduct a class for the month, then we will provide the necessary make-up class.
