All adults, regardless of ability or previous training are welcome. Anyone between the ages of 12 and 17 will need a parent’s written permission to participate. Permission slips will be available at the first meeting.

Class Dress

These classes are very much “hands-on” in nature. Students should dress accordingly. Comfortable, modest clothes should be worn.
