A Message from the President and CEO

UPDATED: On COVID-19 and other matters...

Unless you've been out of circulation recently, you're aware of the recent developments surrounding COVID-19 and the various government responses to same. We've had multiple inquiries regarding classes, and I thought I'd take a moment to address some of your concerns.

As of today (March 23, 2020), the Governor has effectively shut down our classes for the next little while. We hope that you and your loved ones are doing well and staying healthy - and we want to help keep it that way. 

1. DON'T PANIC! And always keep a towel. A small jest, but we all need a small laugh now and then. Remember that prepared does not mean fearful - definitely do the things you need to do in order to keep you and yours safe, but try not to give in to generalized panic. One of the wonderful side-effects of being prepared is that you keep panic at bay. You've got this.

2. We have postponed one class, and are suspending our other classes until  mid-April. Our classes in and of themselves aren't inherently risky from a transmission standpoint. However, travel IS. Many of you will be staying at hotels and dining out. Those activities DO contribute to spreading the virus. Please understand that we have everyone's safety and well-being in mind. We apologize for the inconvenience, and we want you to know that we're here for you.

3. If you are ill or have an immuno-deficiency and feel that you shouldn't participate in a class that you've booked, see point number 1. We will take care of you. We are happy to book you into another class, arrange for a private lesson, or issue a refund. We're all family here, and we take care of our own.

I hope that this helps clear up any questions you currently have. If you need any additional information, please reach out. We can be reached in the following ways:
