All of our group classes have a pre-determined maximum and minimum number of participants. Any class not meeting the minimum number may be canceled, and every effort will be made to offer an acceptable alternative. Some of our classes are offered on a private basis only, and any group class can be taught on a private basis if that better meets your needs. Requests for private classes can be made by calling 303-788-6251.
