Our summer session of group classes is now open for enrollment! Check out our session on our website and sign up soon! The Early Bird Discount will end May 24, so sign up early and save some money. We are noticing increased interest in our classes and expect more classes to sell out this session. Don't snooze, sign up early.
Due to the size of our classrooms, we need to continue teaching group classes virtually until 6ft social distancing restrictions are lifted. All classes will be online via zoom, except for the African Drumming Classes which will meet offsite.
We are also offering limited private lessons in person - let me know if you have any questions about scheduling private lessons, or with any other questions you have.
