A note about class size
It has been great to see so many full classes lately. We’ve been lucky to gain some new students recently, and we are looking forward to continued growth. That being said, sometimes space becomes a constraint, and there are some who would prefer to be in a smaller class. Recently, our Thursday classes in particular have been quite large. If you are looking for a smaller Short Form class where you can get some more individual attention, please consider our Wednesday classes at 10:30am and 6:30pm at Internal Arts New England in Salisbury.

That’s it for now. See you in class!
