Evening Classes (Thursdays)

7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

The weeknight session provides all the content you would receive in the weekend session, but at a less intensive pace for three weeks (Three consecutive Thursdays ), so you have time to soak up the information and ask follow up questions as needed.  These classes can be taken separately as well (contact us for more information and pricing).
