Our Classes are age based and structured in 4 sessions per school year ranging in length from 8 to 11 weeks; please refer to our Class Schedule for specific times and dates.
Each class meets one time per week for the session length. You may join ongoing classes at any point during a session. Registration is for 1 session at a time and not the whole year. Please keep in mind returning students from previous sessions will have preference in registration for future sessions of the same class.
The annual Registration Fee must be processed, prior to beginning you first session, in order to reserve space in a selected class.
