IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT CHILDREN IN PRIVATE LESSONS: Private lessons for three year olds are one-on-one only and are not available with additional students. If you have children ages 4-12 in your group we recommend booking a separate private lesson for the kids, which can run concurrently and in the same general vicinity as the adult group. If an adult partner is required, adult partner is not entitled to instruction during the custom group lesson, you're welcome to ask questions and seek tips but remember the focus is on the lesson participant.

  • Please review our guidelines for demonstrating independence and adult partners. An adult partner is required to attend the lesson until the instructor confirms that the student demonstrates independence in the context of the lessons.
