Winter-Spring 2015 Classes!
Registration for our Winter (January to early March) and Spring (mid-March to May) sessions will open in early December.  Email Miriam to receive an email as soon as registration opens.  Please be aware that our Spring classes often sell out early, since many people register for Winter and Spring sessions at the same time.  Below is a preliminary list of the classes that we will offer in the Winter and Spring Sessions.  Click on the links for each class to see full descriptions, dates, and prices, or view the detailed list here
