Short Program Workshops:

We customize our Short Program Workshops to fit the needs of each special event or class.
These programs are a 1.5 hour minimum duration and can be designed for drop-in participation or be facilitated in a more traditional class format. Workshop fees vary according to length of program and the number of participants. We provide the teachers and materials and tailor programs to meet each group’s goals. A selection of seasonal programs are listed below. We can also create a program based on a particular theme or material. Please be sure to review our Cancellation Policy.
