- SUPER Important Information -


From time to time, we may have to cancel classes with short notice (less than 24 hours) due to inclement weather or because of an insufficient number of students to run a class. We will contact you by phone, by text, by email, and by any other means of communication that you furnish to us in order to alert you to a cancellation. PLEASE answer your phone, and check your texts and emails the day before class, otherwise you may drive a long way to find an empty room. 

We will never cancel a class without making a strong effort to contact you.
