Ways to get started

Check back in August for new class offerings starting in September. 

We have a few different ways to get started. Come and watch, or try a class for free. You may join regular classes right away if you have basic fitness and the schedule works best for you. Or join a 6 week introductory series offered from time to time.  Call if you are curious or want to chat with me about what best fits you. BC Vaccine card required for all indoor practice.
