Please have a copy of your vaccination card handy for the first day of class. We will also have disposable masks and hand sanitizer available.

Note that this course is sold in a 6-week package and will not accommodate drop-ins on a random basis. We recommend that students attend each weekly class as the lessons are progressive and will build upon the previous week.
