STUDIO CLASSES

Studio classes are avocational, open and on-going. They are not part of a school, curriculum or program. Participants pay for each class prior to it being held. After creating an personal account, participants can purchase classes by the single-class or packages of multiple classes that have take-by or expiration dates. 

Each studio includes an observation window. We recommend auditing a class before participating. We do not do placement classes. The teachers determine who can attend their class and classes have different age and level requirements.

After creating an account and purchasing classes, sign-in on the class register before each class you attend, even if you have previously sign-in or reserved your attendance online. Our front desk staff can assist you every step of the way.
