Class Structure

In most classes (other than couples’ classes, where the participants work by couple), students work in groups of two, three, or four. Please contact us if you’d like to know more information of this nature regarding specific classes.

Dress Code

For participation classes, we recommend that you wear comfortable clothing and closed-toed shoes.
