ABOUT OUR CLASSES

All of our studio teachers are independent contractors who run their own programs and enrollment. Schedules, start dates, program content, duration, and pricing will vary. Our studio teachers are experienced and qualified professionals.  We suggest consistently attending one class per week with the same instructor as the best plan for learning. Choose the course that best suits your schedule, and enroll directly with that teacher. General questions can be answered via our contact form. Specific questions should be directed to the individual teacher.
