Tentative 2020-2021 SCHEDULE

Due to maximum class size limitations, some classes may already be at capacity.  If still interested in a class that is full, please register anyway so that your child will be placed on a waiting list.  Based on the number of students interested in a particular class, an additional class section may be added on Sunday.

In addition, all classes will also be available VIRTUALLY.  We have installed a professional camera in the studio to allow for synchronous instruction at home via ZOOM during scheduled class time.  If you are unable to come to the studio for class, please consider participating virtually.
