Community Classes - Staff
One of the foundations of our studio is developing and supporting our community. In 2008, we coined the term "Community Classes" as a way for us to give back to our community through both inviting in those who cannot afford the regular fees and by offering financial support to businesses in our community. These classes offer everyone the opportunity to try the various styles of practice we offer at the studio. All proceeds collected from Community Classes are donated to non-profits.
