We will be CLOSED all of Memorial Day weekend. We’re taking this opportunity to give the staff a small vacation by closing the Saturday before our regular observance of the federal holiday. No classes from Saturday, May 23 through Monday, May 25. Regular schedule resumes Tuesday, May 26.
Due to chronic low attendance, Family Class (Saturdays at 11am) is cancelled, until further notice. We can’t maintain this offering with consistent attendance of fewer than five students. We apologize for any inconvenience and encourage students seeking additional practice time to take advantage of Thursday’s Open Gym at 6pm. We will be restructuring the other Saturday morning classes in the near future, but this is the only current change.
