Adult & Teen Classes

PLEASE NOTE: MOST OF OUR CLASSES ARE OFFERED IN THE STUDIO ONLY. WE OFFER SOME ONLINE CLASSES, AS NOTED BELOW.

Summer Session runs for 12 weeks between June 5-Aug 27 and registration is now open!

We will need to have a minimum number of students enrolled in any particular class in order for it to continue beyond the first meeting. If minimum enrollment in the full series has not been met before the second class, the class will be removed from the schedule.

Due to space restrictions, single class purchases will not be allowed the first week for in-person classes that usually fill to capacity. This prioritizes registration to students who wish to attend the entire series. Drop-in purchases will be allowed after week #1, if space allows. 

Make-ups may be taken for classes missed during the 12-week session but may not be carried over to the next session.
