Please understand and respect our Lesson Age requirements as they are in place for the health and safety of our staff and our guests. Please note: if you misrepresent your child’s age purposefully or by mistake, the lesson you booked will be treated as a ‘day of cancellation’ which means the entire lesson fee is forfeited, unless we are able to rebook the lesson as an age-appropriate option.
