We hope you are all doing well and staying healthy! We've heard input from a number of you, and we continue to make small adjustments to our school and programs. The instructors have been proud of the hard work you are all putting into class sessions and are impressed by how quickly visible improvements have been made! Keep up the hard work - it is worth it!

We are continuing our schedule for in-person group classes with the same guidelines we have been following. We realize many of you have difficulties with masks during classes.

  • No partner work except with family members
  • All students must wear a face covering (mask or face shield)

Students and parents: Don't forget to get into the appropriate BAND for the program(s) you are part of. This is our preferred way to stay in touch with instructors, get important announcements, and even share pictures from class and events. It is where you will learn when classes have been canceled due to bad weather or road conditions! If you are having trouble getting in, talk with an instructor.
