Adult & Teen Classes

 PLEASE NOTE: OUR CLASSES ARE OFFERED IN-STUDIO AND ONLINE BY ZOOM. SOME CLASSES ARE ONLY OFFERED ONE WAY, NOT BOTH.

Summer Session #2 runs for 6 weeks between July 18 – Aug 28 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. Thank you for your kind understanding as we tweak our policies in order to support our financial sustainability during these challenging times.

Make-ups may be taken during the 6-week session but may not be carried over to the next session.

Here’s the fee schedule for the 6-week session:

45 min – 1 hour: $66/$12.50 drop in
1.25 hours: $78/$15 drop in
1.5 hrs $90/$17 drop in
