Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, many classes beginning in March 2020 have been cancelled or delayed in an effort to comply with “Shelter in Place” orders and current CDC Guidances. I will continue to update the schedule section of the website to reflect any cancelled and/or rescheduled events to be best of my ability. I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience that schedule changes may cause. I hope you and your families remain safe during these difficult times and I look forward to seeing everyone once it is safe to do so.
