How do I sign up for a General Class?

2- Once you know your level, scroll down to check what options of day & time are available for your level. 

3- Click on Class Registration. You will be able to pay for the class online using Paypal or a credit/debit card.  Alternatively, you can mail your registration form and check.  



General Classes are enrolled and priced in 10-week programs for a total of 20 hours - 2 hours per week - except for the summer program.  The summer program is split into two 5-week programs to allow for students to take time off without missing 2 whole months. There are 4 programs per year: winter, spring, summer and fall. 

Note: Most classes meet once a week for 2 hours.  However some meet twice a week for 1 hour.

Summer Tuition fees:  $190
