About the classes

Children are taught in a progressive environment that stresses communication and cooperation. 

Beginners will learn the fundamental technique and form to support more advanced work as they become ready.  Students with more experience in one area will be challenged to sequence moves and work for longer periods of time with an emphasis on better form.
