p.s. All of our classes take place in the treehouse, sometimes during business hours. Because of this, the classes are kept small so that everyone can participate (usually 4-6 people per class). We suggest signing up as soon as you know you want to take a class because once a class fills up, we'll start a waiting list for the next session.
