Saludos! There will be some changes to my current classes beginning immediately. We are consolidating and solidifying the levels of some classes, to offer the student a more effective and satisfying experience. We feel a workshop style class will be more fun and enriching as well as less expensive!
Wednesday evening classes at City Ballet Studio are discontinued effective immediately.
From April 13- May 3 there will be no Tuesday classes, as I am taking a break. (If you have classes left on your cards, you can apply them to the upcoming workshop.)
Tuesday night classes at the SF Dance Center will begin in a new format of workshop only, running in 8-week sessions. The next Workshop begins on Tuesday, May 11 - June 29. I will be offering some new classes at all levels and encourage my students to send me their thoughts or requests. These classes will also take place on the 5th Floor studio at SF Dance Center, not the 3rd Floor Studio.
The Saturday Ashkenaz Workshop remains unchanged and the current workshop runs to Saturday, April 24. The next session starts on May 1- June 19, for Level 1 Beginners and Level 11 Intermediate students.
