Ways to get started

We are resuming classes this fall, and offering a few different ways to get started. You are welcome to join the regular classes right away, if the schedule works best for you. Or ease in to it with any of the 8 week sessions below, and then join the regular classes.  Call if you are curious or want to chat with me about what best fits you. BC Vaccine card required for all indoor practice.
