Make ups are not guaranteed but we will try our best to help you find playing options. There is only one make up class per season allowed for groups with a 6:1 ratio. All specialty lessons (4:1 group, semi private, private, family lessons) come with unlimited make ups.  ALL make up requests can only be made by using our online make up request form at least 24 hours before the start time of your class and make ups are valid until the end of the current season (i.e. fall, winter, spring). Al make ups must be scheduled and approved by HTSC staff. Make ups and credits do not carry over to any other sessions or programs.
