Fall / Winter Schedule

Posted on October 13th, 2011 by

Winter Schedule: Normally, we wind down group classes in the Holiday season and start again in January. As we’ve mentioned before, this year will be a bit different with the new arrival due in February. As a result, we are still working on our schedule and may teach a few “mini” classes in December and/or early January. Keep an eye out on the website for updates on this. We know we will be taking a hiatus from teaching in February. We are tentatively planning to return to teaching group classes in some capacity in March or April.

With a new addition to the family, we will be revamping how we offer private lessons in 2012. Until then, we plan to keep teaching private lessons until the end of the year. Be sure to take advantage of them now before our schedule gets busy! We will go on hiatus from teaching private lessons at the start of the year and don’t plan to return until sometime after we start group classes again in March or April.
