Winter 2022 UPDATED
schedule of classes

Let’s try this again!

Like so many schools this past week, we are trying to balance the business we do with the safety of our community. Due to the Omicron surge of  COVID-19 in Austin we made the difficult decision to push our January start date for classes to February. COVID sucks!

Good news is, if you think you missed the start of classes you’ve still got time to register! Classes are filling up quickly, but we’ve still got room for more registrations.

We continue to balance our desire to play, connect, and teach classes without interruptions, exposures, and risking the safety of our staff and students. We will continue to look for the best way to move forward in the next weeks as we stay in sync with the City’s COVID-19 Risk-Based Guidelines.

Until we can get back together, please keep each other safe!
