Spring Classes

 

Spring Classes

Classes begin the week of March 30th and run through the week of May 25th

We hope to be up and running with all classes after our two-week hiatus, however we will be reviewing the national and CDC guidelines and following all recommendations regarding social-distancing and limiting group gatherings. We will reassess the situation and make a final decision regarding spring classes within the next two weeks.
