Temporary Policy Changes for 2020

IMPORTANT: We are temporarily changing our cancellation policy at this time.

While we sympathize with everyone’s situation and we do not want students coming to the studio if they feel unwell, please note we will not be offering any refunds or class credits for classes cancelled. This has been an incredibly difficult time for small businesses, and we still have many fixed expenses to cover. We greatly appreciate your support and understanding.

We want to offer some flexibility for students who are feeling unwell and/or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. We will be allowing students to sell the class they want to cancel to someone else. The student will be responsible to contact people from an official waitlist that will be provided by Firefly Circus Academy, and sell the class they plan to miss in order to mitigate their costs. This will be solely the responsibility of the students to arrange among themselves. Waitlists will be specific for each class; you can only sell your class to someone on the waitlist for that particular class. If you have any questions, contact Carol or Annie – aerialarts@fireflytheatre.com.

Firefly Circus Academy/Firefly Theatre and Circus reserves the right to cancel any class for lack of participants.
