COURSES

COVID-19 UPDATE:

We shall be running Courses again from April/May 2022 following Government guidance for establishments like ours.

We are looking to resume classes from April/May 2022 after James returns from his mini sabbatical. We will have lots of exciting Courses on offer including some NEW COURSES and our CURRENT FAVORITES. There is sure to be something for everyone!

We will be making the best use of our inside, outside space. Having the large marquee this year has been a great way of having a nice full class whilst keeping our tutors and students safe and comfortable at the studio. We will continue to follow the guidance of the government and implement our covid-safe strategy. A more detailed outline of our covid-19 strategy can be found here.

We looking forward to welcoming you back!
